Device & Specs

Device & Specs

Well, here it is, the David and Goliath matchup of the comparison sections of the review. While to most people, this probably wouldn't be a fair fight, it's worth mentioning that the iPad is fairly limited in its hardware capacities in comparison to many of the Android tablets out there.

Screen

The screen of the iPad 2 is very hard to dismiss from a performance standpoint, and is far better than that of the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 in almost every measurable category except for size, which is virtually identical.

Battery

Here too, the iPad crushes the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 in performance, as it has one of the best batteries on the market currently.

eReader

As an eReader, we're tempted to stick with the iPad here too, as it not only fits in the hand better, but lasts longer with the same apps as the Lenovo IdeaPad K1. Again, the iPad performs better across the board.

Internet

This one's tough, as both the iPad and the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 have a bunch to offer in the way of pre-loaded software, and apps in their respective app stores. You really can't go wrong with either here.
