PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

As usual, Lenovo will try to deny refunds for those who will want to return Windows which is preinstalled there?

Lenovo is one of the companies who practically explicitly state they they deny refunds for bundled software. Up until recently, their rules used to say:

Lenovo does not provide refunds or credits for portions of a packaged offering provided at a single price or for preloaded programs installed by Lenovo.


Then, they were hit with a court ruling which exposed such product tying as illegal. They changed the wording a bit (not the essence though):

If you acquired a software product separate from a hardware product, and paid a license fee, you may return the software product in its original, sealed package within 21 days of the date of invoice and obtain a refund or credit.


I.e. they still pretend you can't get a refund, if you bought the software together with the hardware.

Next you'll want a refund for the OS that runs on your microwave oven.

Its one thing to want the freedom to install another OS, its another thing to demand a refund for an OS which was sold to Lenovo at a volume discounted rate.

This steers into the realm of ridiculousness.
