Music & Audio Controls

Included in the software for most Android 3 tablets like the IdeaPad is Google's Music app. Music playback on this program is very straightforward, as it has all the basic controls out in the open, along with a scrub bar and album art. As far as advanced controls go, you can create and manage playlists, flick through your library with a cover flow, or stream music from your library stored on Google's servers.

Attractive, no?

Music & Audio Management

Music files are managed by both the Music app and the File Management application, but you'll probably only use the Music app for these files. You can sort your music out in lists, a cover flow, or by any one of a number of groupings available on the stock Music app.

Music & Audio Formats

As an added treat to audiophiles, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 uses a high-end Wolfson DAC chip to minimize clock-timing errors, so even though you won't be bringing high-end cans on the go, you'll be able to listen to music at a decent quality.

Music & Audio Battery Life

While playing nothing but music, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 was able to last over 24 hours straight, though this is mostly due to the fact that the screen automatically shuts off after a certain period of inactivity. If you listen to music while doing other things, your mileage will vary.
