The Miix 320 is very well integrated machine with so many great functions and you even could forget that this is device is detachable. This was the experience that I got when I unboxed it for the first time few weeks ago. The basic laptop allows you to transform it into multiple functionalities including the tablet mode and standard mode with keyboard. Carrying it around should be done easily since the design is slim and simple. The 10.1 inch screen is the most suitable one for children since it’s not too big or too small for them.
I have got the chance to review this unit as I was happy with the previous model that was released last year. It’s becoming my nice secondary companion as my primary laptop on charging. The company designed it for doing any light task or any activity that not demanding much of power.
I guess you probably want to see it deeper and that is what we are going to do. We are going to talk about it further and see how it looks and performs. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
The shiny and beveled edges really remind me of Apple Macbook. Of course is not really similar like Macbook as the material is not made from aluminum, but plastic. The design is still good, but just do not expect much thing from it. Here. I tried to detach it for multiple times and surprisingly require us to give lot of power to remove it from the keyboard. It feels like the tablet is not that balance with the keyboard, but in good side it would not easily detached from the keyboard since the hinges are so strong.
On the dock mode, the dimension is measured at 2.3 pounds for the weight and 0.7 for the thickness. This size is so suitable and compact for children rather stick them with 11.6 inch machine that we find on the HP Stream 11 or Dell Chromebook 3180. Throwing it into their backpack should be easily and they are not going to feel like they are bringing something.
For the connectivity, there are two USB 2.0 ports on the both sides of the body. There are also USB type-C port and micro HDMI port for connecting it to the bigger display. Just make sure to have the converter as it does not fit with standard HDMI cable. The ports are good and means make us easier on transferring data at the same time.back to menu ↑
Display And Audio
The 1280 x 800 resolution in 10.1 inch screen is not something bad to combine together. The resolution is relatively low, but thanks to the small screen, the pixelation on text or images are hard to find. The images qualities are great, but it lacks of detail on the color reproduction. For further investigation, I tested it benchmark and got the score for 95 percent on producing of SRGB gamut color. The result is the one of the best I tested so far in this price.
As for the audio, there is not much thing to talk about here. The sounds of pretty decent for the price and can easily fill out a small room with the speakers. The Dolby Audio application is included if you think the vocal and bass is too flat. Setting it manual is recommended, but we could leave if you do not want.

Keyboard And Storage
The keyboard is relatively comfortable for typing in many hours without any issue. I was easily able to type for 70 words per minute on my test. The errors are so small and only found on the functional keys and delete keys that for some reasons are small. The letter keys are in normal, but not with the rest of them. You probably need to get used with it for a while.
The storage is the biggest issue here as it only packs with 64 GB EMMC storage. That size is not enough for installing many applications and storing large files. For this case, I recommend you to put of micro SD card as the external storage and use that place for storing our multimedia purposes. This is the price for its cheap tag.
