Expert review by : Joshua Goldman (cnet.com.au)

Lenovo's Miix 520 is a Surface Pro clone with a longer battery

 

The Miix 520's new eighth-gen Intel processor helps push this two-in-one ahead of the competition.

The Lenovo Miix 520 looks identical to the Miix 510, but its new processor and components help get you better performance and battery life. Far-field microphones have been added for better use of Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant. Keyboard cover...

The pen holder completely blocks the USB-A port and, when it's holding the pen, partially blocks the power jack and USB-C port. The fans can get a little too loud for quiet environments. Battery life is unimpressive.

Intel's eighth-gen Core i5 processor breathes new life into Lenovo's midrange detachable two-in-one to make the Miix 520 an excellent choice for home office and students.
