Specifications may vary
My particular tablet is a 80QL0004US: Intel 6Y30 m3 CPU, 4GB RAM, 64GB m.2 SSD. That’s the low end of the Miix 700 spectrum, but it’s still a very capable unit. The only thing I would (and did) change is the SSD. 64GB is pretty large for a tablet, but Windows can take up considerable space, and the things this tablet can do encourage large data sets and apps. More on that later.

Things to note:
The keyboard isn’t Bluetooth. It only works when attached to the tablet.
The charger input is also a USB 2.0 host socket that provides an additional USB port when the charger isn’t connected. The tablet uses a special 5V + 20V charger and cable. It can’t be charged via a generic 5V USB power source. The charger can be used to charge a 5V USB-chargeable device (phone, other tablet…) when it isn’t being used with the Miix.
