It is a detachable 2-in-1 laptop which means its screen is able to separated from the keyboard and able to operate as a portable tablet.

They offer strength and flexibility while it is used as either a tablet or a laptop.
The first part of discussion is the processor. The IdeaPad Miix 510 80U10066US is powered with Intel Core i3-6100U CPU, the 6th generation of Intel Core i3. The clock speed is 2.3 GHz and 3GB of cache size. It is popular as a really potent smaller brother of the i5 with very little difference between both of them.
The system memory comes with this laptop is a soldered 4 GB of DDR4-2133 SDRAM. This amount of memory is feasible for users to work with their daily tasks easily and also photo editing and doing multitask. Unfortunately, there is no further explanation whether the amount is expandable or not.
As for the storage space, there are a 128 GB SATA3 PCIe Solid State Drive. The use of SSD in a portable device like Miix 510 is better than a hard disk drive since it has no moving parts, lighter, energy efficient and handles data faster than any mechanical hard drive could. If user needs more storage space, they can invest in an external hard drive or using cloud storage. A micro SD could as well an alternative.

Interesting, this device comes with an unusual ratio of 16:10 and the unconventional resolution of 1920 x 1200. This means that you will gain 120 vertical pixels which is useful when browsing webpages. It also will give a brilliant display even in bright sunshine conditions. And because of the IPS technology, it will show vivid and rich colors.
This 12.2 inch screen is a perfect choice and works greatly as a hybrid between ultraportable 11.6″ and more practical 13.3″. User will obtain the advantages of two worlds without much compromise in between.
