There are "fun" tablets made for entertainment, and there are those aimed at serious users who don't give an eff about the latest version of Angry Birds. What we're about to show you belongs to the latter.
Geeks, check out the Windows-powered Lenovo ThinkPad 8!

Yes, it looks like an average tablet. No, it's not your average tablet. Confused? Don't be. Just think of the ThinkPad 8 as a device that transcends your cam-whoring, Flappy Bird-playing needs. In other words, it's made for professional bros who want actual shit done.
Below are five reasons why!
BECAUSE IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO WASTE ALL THAT POWER ON SELFIES AND GAMES

The ThinkPad 8 is stacked with hardware that make our tablets feel like old toys. The specs-line reads: Intel quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, among others. Grabe lang! Suffice to say, with that kind of power, it begs for more hardcore processing action, the type that can actually make you more productive.
BECAUSE WINDOWS 8.1 IS THE SHIZNIT
We love Android and iOS, but when it comes to productivity, a full-blown desktop operating system still wins. The ThinkPad 8 comes with a full version of Windows 8.1 as well as Microsoft Office so rest assured you can use it to impress your boss.
BECAUSE IT MAKES WORKING ON THE ROAD POSSIBLE
At 8.8mm (the same thickness as a slim smartphone) and only 430g in weight, the ThinkPad 8 won't cramp up your style when you decide to bring it along with you. Couple that with its impressive innards and Windows 8.1 and you've got yourself a miniature mobile office, brotha!
BECAUSE IT CAN "TRANSFORM"

On its own, the ThinkPad 8 is already a capable performer. Pair it with the optional ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard and it practically transforms into a laptop. Sure, you can make do with poking and swiping on its impressive Full-HD screen, but we all know your Word and Excel files will be done faster if you have an actual keyboard.
BECAUSE IT'S ONE TOUGH MOTHER
With a frame crafted from high-grade aluminum, the ThinkPad 8 has the toughness to take on the bumps of on-the-road computing, whether you're inside the hellhole known as the MRT or a taxi with a buwis-buhay driver.
Note: The ThinkPad 8 is now available for P25,490. SRP for the optional ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard is still TBA.
