Additionally, the tablet is also offered with a so-called Lenovo Active Pen 2, which is pretty much Lenovo's own version of the Surface Pen, but this is sold separately and comes with a price of $59.99.

With CES 2017 about to kick-off in next few hours, Lenovo has unwrapped its convertible laptop the Miix 720. And with the Miix 720 able to accommodate up to an Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD, it won't be hurting for performance or storage.

Connectivity comprises of a USB Type-C port, along with one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 connector, plus there's 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 on board, too.

The 12-inch touchscreen delivers QHD+ screen resolution with 2880 x 1920 pixels. Unlike the Surface, though, the keyboard is included with the Miix at its starting price of $999 (approximately AU$1,400 or £800).

The tablet has been secured with Microsoft's Windows Hello biometric protection, letting users unlock it by using the front camera though it's not immediately clear whether the system uses facial recognition or iris scanning. Available in two Champagne Gold and Iron Gray, it will be available from April 2017. Lenovo's commitment to creating smarter pens is based in large part on a growing body of research demonstrating that digital pens are better suited to intrinsic human cognition, including conceptualizing, prototyping, sketching, memorizing, and good old-fashioned brainstorming. The device can run either Windows 10 Home or Pro, and also comes with Intel HD integrated graphics 620.

The Lenovo tablet supports up to 16GB of faster DDR4 DRAM.

To round things off, Lenovo unveiled the refreshed ThinkPad X1 Yoga and ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The keyboard also has backlight to make your life easier in the dark.

Battery life is claimed at up to 15 hours, and Lenovo has also improved the ThinkPad Pen Pro with a "soft elastomer tip" that ensures a more natural writing experience with the stylus. That brings it about up to speed with the best when it comes to laptop-level specs, so we're expecting it to be a solid answer to the Surface Pro at least on hardware alone. The Active Pen 2 will be available in February for $59.99 United States dollars.
