    I counted around 8gb free. Someone can verify.

    Yes, there's about 8-9 GB free. I removed the McAfee and a few other items to boost that to 10 GB. I'm trying to decide if I want to keep mine, but I may move to the 64 GB model as well. Nice tablet though.

    Just noticed that it is available at best buy.
    Type Lenovo Miix in the search bar on bestbuy.com. Seems like its also available in a lot of stores. I will be visiting the one close to my house tomorrow

    What issues? I had one for review and testing. After testing various Windows and Android devices, I just purchased one. It is avery nice device. Coworker has a Dell Venue 8 Pro. the Lenovo Miix 2 is lighter and screen produces more accurate colors. I also like the availability of a reasonably priced smart cover, versus the Dell's over priced folio case.

    Users have been reporting issues with the built in keyboard , and the wifi signal is worst than Dell.
    Can you confirm it ?

    I had one unit for review in early November. That unit had some issues with the capacitive Windows key, weaker than desired 5GHz signal strength, and on screen keyboard performance. A full refresh eliminated some of the issues. Standby battery life was so so.

    My newer unit that I just got this week has substantially better 5GHz signal strength and throughput. However, the on screen keyboard can be very troublesome. Other times it is not too bad. The capacitive Windows key is better once you get used to it.

    I am hoping a firmware or other update can help with the keyboard. Calibrating and regedit hacks don't work. The recent battery hot fix seems to have worked for the battery. I have great standby time now.

    However, it also has issues shutting down properly. It'll look **** it is off but it never really shutdown. Only witnessed during a restart.

    I am doing to try the Dell but it is less appealing to me than this Lenovo. I like having the lightest and thinnest tablet of the bunch. The Toshiba is too heavy and the Acer not yet shipping.

    I completed a full refresh. Everything is working better. I think the key is to get the firmware updates first then refresh the PC. Starting clean then seems to alleviate the issues. They keyboard is better. I no longer have the restart or shutdown issue either. I'll update after some more usage.

    A full refresh ended up not solving the problem with freezing. However, I disabled encryption. That seemed to do the trick! All that is left outstanding is the glitchy keyboard.

    I have the miix2 64GB version & have no standby power on or glitchy keybord issues as reported earlier. Mounted a 64GB microsdxc into c drive & installed Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop & Illustrator CS6 without problem. Also had the GPS working with a free navigation software Navigator Free | mapFactor, s.r.o.

    I've had my 64g for about a week now and I love it. I've had no problems with keyboard or wifi, or anything really. Seems quite stable.

    If I had a complaint, it would be that it's a bit slick to hold. I have a case on order but the naked tablet would be better with a textured back of some kind (like a Nexus 7).

    This is also my first experience with Windows 8. Although the modern ui apps are nicer to work with at this size of tablet, I couldn't imagine choosing just an RT tablet. I was waiting for a full Windows tablet for a good price so this was it. I definitely would not have been happy with just the RT apps so I'm glad I waited.
