Budowa i jakość wykonania

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000, reklamowany jest przez producenta jako tablet muzyczny – na frontowym panelu zaimplementowane zostały dwa głośniki stereo z systemem dźwięku Dolby Digital Plus. Nie należy spodziewać się jednak zbyt mocnych basów, gdyż taki efekt uzyskamy dopiero po podłączeniu zestawu słuchawkowego. Niestety coś kosztem czegoś, toteż na tylnym panelu nie znajdziemy oczka aparatu głównego. Tablet jest bezpośrednim konkurentem dla Acer Iconia B1 oraz ASUS Memo Pad.
