Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review
The IdeaPad K1 offers middle of the road performance at a price to match.
The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is not a bad option if your needs are limited, but you'd like to explore more with your tablet. It really doesn't set itself very far from the Android 3.2 pack, although the button on the front of the tablet itself will help iPad users make the transition to Android.
There are a few drawbacks to the Lenovo IdeaPad K1, namely the fact that the battery is somewhat bad, but it's not terrible. To be frank, the real concern is the dim screen, as that means it will be very hard to squeeze more battery life out of the tablet; what we reported is very close to the performance ceiling for the tablet without making some very dissatisfying tradeoffs.
All that being said, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is a fairly solid and durable tablet with the beautiful and functional Android 3.2 operating system. You should have no issues or complaints about the basic functionality of the tablet, as the software support is great, and the interface is very easy to get used to.
If you can find this tablet on sale, and your needs for a tablet are not specialized or so advanced that you need to be the king of your living room, this isn't a bad pickup. Keep in mind the performance shortcomings, and if you're still okay with that, you'll be happy with your purchase.
