I'd read somewhere that despite Intel's web site indicating that the Cloverview platform would not support Windows 10, rumour (and some forum posts) had it that they had actually completed a suitable, working driver. 3D performance is as bad as it was in Windows 8.1 - I tried playing some of the old Microsoft Store games I acquired from the early days of Windows 8. They went, but were only somewhat playable. A notable thing is that in Windows 8, they ran full screen but in Windows 10, you can run it in a window, shrink the window down a bit and suddenly the game becomes a whole lot more playable. I had the task manager open at the time too, and it's the graphics hardware that is the nottleneck - CPU was sitting around 50%. It does play video just fine though.
The Lenovo Windows Store apps "Companion" and "Settings" require the installation of a couple of packages that have to be downloaded from Lenovo's web site from but apart from that, they work well and function as a sort of combination of all the previous Thinkvantage tools. All together, they do increase the bloat factor disproportionately though.
Battery life is excellent, and the handwriting recognition is still working well too. The WriteIt app by Lenovo works on it, but it's quite laggy compared to the Miix 700. You get that though, after all it is a Core M vs an old Atom from 2012. Still, it's a very competent note taking machine and great for checking email while out and about.
