    We plan home-schooling my toddler. I think this tablet will be one of our greatest asset, and will benefit us in the following ways:

    1) The 7″ HD touch screen will certainly improve his motor co-ordination.
    2) The light weight of the tablet will help my son to easily handle and use the tablet.
    3) With a toddler, the strong build-durability will be most advantageous for us.
    4) The expandable memory will offer almost limitless storage of educational resources, which can be easily shared with other home-schooling kids/parents.
    5) The android operating system will allow us access to an amazing library of educational apps, book, etc
    6) The wifi internet facility will grant us access to much needed online resources, incl. tutorial videos, guides, test papers, research, etc.
    7) The 3G portability will allow us to take our schooling on the road. Alllowing us not to be confined to the boundaries of our home and affording us the flexibility we seek through home-schooling
    8) The games can be used as a good rewards incentive for my little one, after completing certain educational tasks.

    These are but a few of the advantages that having the Lenovo Ideapad will bring to our lifestyle.

    Of course, I have limited my selection by only focusing on the home schooling benefits.

    Thanks

    Hi! Since I don’t have a PC, this would be a great opportunity for me to own Lenovo IdeaTab, because there are some Applications that I always trying to download but because I’m using an old model phone, they can not be downloadable, but I believe that when it happen for me to be the owner of this lovely tab, I won’t struggle when it comes to internet access and I won’t have any problem opening some of pages on Internet. Because I like doing research on things that I want to know or understand! So it will help me very much to have it.

  • Rentia

    Nafisa, let me start with what I have to work with….wait for it…a HTC Wildfire S…yes, you read correct! It is so old!! I use this to connect to social media most of the time and it always leaves me frustrated. I can’t even download apps, because there’s no space!!! My poor husband has to hear my complaints every night. I am a social media junkie and needs to be connected. But as you know, I can’t really share and connect on Facebook and Twitter takes forever. Let’s not even start with Pinterest.

    The Lenovo IdeaPad A2107 sound like my type of gadget, love the look! Did you mention it has a 7-inch HD display??? What! That’s ridiculous(ly cool)!

    I will really love this tab and look after it like gold. Will product display at work, meetings, family gatherings, social events, product launches, conferences – you name it…at no charge 🙂

    From a desperate, yet sincere Lenovo lover!
    Thank you!

  • mandisa mpulo

    I could stop being an “analogue girl in a digital world”.
    Acceptance is the 1st step.
    Winning the tablet, the 2nd.

  • Lynn Botha

    Not only would this be beneficial for me for just about everything, but I have 2 toddlers at home and there is a constant fight about who’s turn it is to watch tv.. So to give hubby and I a chance to watch something that we want to watch in private, or even let the kids watch a movie on the Lenova would be such a treat – and I can keep them close to me and keep an eye on them. So all in all its a win win situation and I get to have much needed quality time with hubby 🙂

  • Julie Garcia

    The Lenovo Idea Pad with it’s 7” HD, multi-touch display(seeing that the eyesight is not what it used to be) will help me enjoy the best games, music or video and the clearest chat with my family and friends all over the world. I will also not have to carry heavy books and an extra camera on any future travels. Wow this prospect is exciting. I hope to win

  • Ashley Bess

    Since the car went over my Nokia E7 my life has been destroyed because I need to be fixed to a desk again. I was so used to doing thinks on the go check everything on the go and now life sucks as I have been down graded and move back to a desk. This Lenovo idea pad would be ideal as it would put me back on the map and it will make everything available to me as im moving around and not be desk bound to check emails, twitter or facebook messages, I think it would be the perfect piece of technology to me.

  • Zahira Bano

    i want this lenovo 7inch IdeaTAB badly!! i recently got married and i am shifted to southafrica alhtough my family is in India and i miss my family soo much , therefore if i will get it i will skype with her and can make my life much more easier because i can talk to them and can even see each other 🙂

  • Ling Ling Addison Sheperd

    One thing we cannot purchase yet 🙂 is Time, my work commute everyday of 2 hours would be so much more productive with a Lenovo IdeaTab.

  • Kay Johnson

    Oh my word, like seriously I swear this competition was directed at me. Just the other day I mentioned I really need a tab. Well I recently graduated and joined the world of work. I’m a qualified marketer, I’m currently doing marketing and advertising and with such a job you constantly on the go and always interacting with clients as well as on social networks. This tab would be ideal for me because everyone knows how bulky a laptop is, and being a female it really isn’t cute going to meetings or meeting clients with huge not so pretty looking laptops. I can picture me entering a meeting with just my handbag and then taking out my beautiful, lightweight and handbag friendly ideaTab and impressing everyone *smiles*,you see I’m picturing me with it already. Having the ideaTab would also be extremely convenient as that would me I can access social networks, emails, do research at one go and be the superwomen I’m destined to be. Winning this would mean I could climb the corporate ladder in style and more conveniently all thanks to Lenovo IdeaTab 🙂

  • Bongi Kagiso Madisa

    With a lenovo Ideapad I will use every amazing feature it has:

    It comes with a mini-sim to make my calls, I will call with it, skype, whatsapp, download apps, facebooking, twittering,browsing the internet.

    It has a good TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

    Size 600 x 1024 pixels, 7.0 inches, which I will use for movies,viewing pictures, playing android games.

    With the loudspeaker and 3.5 mm jack I will listen to music, watch movies on the go.The size is good for portability.

    It has 16GB storage to store all my media, including ebooks to read on the go.1 GB ram will ensure i can play the most demanding games on the android play an dnot experience any lag even when multitasking.It also has WIFI which is good when I go to coffee shops and wifi hotspots.

    Bluetooth will enable connection my computer and my other buddies.USB is the best for file transfer an backup.

    The Camera will definitely come in handy in taking photos and videos everywhere I will be, meaning I will not miss special moments in life.

    Android 4.03 is a very smooth OS and had a lot of features and customizing abilities. The CPU and GPU make it a beast in the media it supports, this will be used to it full measure.GPS is a big plus, meaning I will never get lost when going on trips and adventures.I will show off this device to all my friends and make them want to get one as I will use everywhere I go.I hope to WIN.

  • Jhaharha Lackram

    I
    currently doing my honours degree full time which is characterized
    primarily by research, however I am still required to do coursework and
    attend
    my lectures. The dissertation is the capstone of the degree but I feel
    as if my
    time is constrained by going to lectures. Needless to say, I am studying
    for my honours in Information Systems and Technology – this device
    would be right up my alley considering my study choice as well as my
    dynamic interest in technology. Having the new Lenovo IdeaTab A2107
    will benefit me in both my academic and personal life. The long
    battery life will ensure that I can read the research articles from
    which I will
    compose my dissertation on, during my lectures. My time management will improve immensely and I will
    have more time to spend reading leisurely. As a student I have to travel light
    as I have to walk to different venues on campus thus the light weight of the
    tab (400grams!) will be ideal for my walking – I can also keep up with music
    while walking thanks to the dual speakers and audio jack! I can connect to the
    wi-fi network on campus and browse the internet at my convenience – no more
    waiting in long lines at the computer labs to use a computer! Tied town
    by student fees is a major hindrance to keeping up with the latest
    technology 🙁 Thus, this will be the perfect prize. I will be a woman
    of power with this nifty device –make that the epitome of power!

  • Hmm. How would the IdeaPad change my lifestyle?

    Firstly, I’d have to buy a whole new set of cargo pants! I’ll need bigger pockets to accommodate the seven-inch screen.

    Secondly, I’ll probably dedicate one of the pockets to my little portable DStv Drifta. And I’ll turn into someone who watches sports in public, turning the IdeaPad into a multimedia whizz.

    Thirdly, I’d hang out at coffee shops more often, using the IdeaPad as a portable caricature sketching tool to draw comical portraits of unsuspecting coffee-shoppers.

    Fourthly, I’d have to find some sort of way of mounting this next to my car’s steering wheel so I can use it as an outsized GPS navigation king, using WAZE to find my way.

    Fifthly (is this even a word?), books books books books books. In queues. The IdeaPad’s 7 inch screen makes it absolutely perfect for ebook-reading. And it would literally make queues a pleasure instead of a pain.

    Sixthly (okay… this thing of adding ‘ly’ to a number is starting to sound a little odd!), I’d actually get a better grip on my finances by using the camera to capture images of my slips so I can use one of the apps that does money management. There’s one called Easy Money that might do the trick. But if it doesn’t, Evernote would be a good way of sorting the info.

    Seventh(ly), the IdeaPad would make an awesome bedside alarm clock/music system. Easy to locate the snooze button. And brilliant to fall asleep to!

    Eighthly, that drop-resistant internal roll-cage makes me think of daredevil things! I could watch YouTube training videos of parkour maniacs running up walls, somersaulting over moving cars, leaping off buildings and doing forward rolls down tarmac! I could watch such videos and entertain thoughts of me doing similar deeds, all without breaking the IdeaPad!

    I’d say that’s a bit of a lifestyle change, wouldn’t you?

    Thanks for a killer competition, and thanks for letting me exercise my realistic-fantasy brain-muscles.

    Even if I do win this tablet it will be promptly followed by a vastly improved and sleeker looking version. 🙂

  • Chido Chivaura

    Can anyone think of any reason why not to have one? I can’t. I know I get lost often so that would help but most importantly it would help with my studies…no more giant books, giant laptops to chug around everyday, bored while waiting in long queues and sore backs. Only simple e-books and the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 Tablet. It’s good for nature and good for peace of mind

  • Tanya B

    I am soon to start an internship with a major accounting firm while
    still studying towards a postgraduate certificate via a distance
    learning institution…this means that superb time management is of the
    utmost importance, I simply cannot afford to forget anything! The
    Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 will be a life (saving) organizer to help me step up
    to the challenge!

  • Shelene

    My mum has been a house wife for 40 years and has never used a computer however I have recently bought a tablet which she has limited access to. She loves learning on it. She now knows how to read books on it, play games and I’m teaching her to do banking on it. The Lenovu tablet will change her life.

  • Senwelo Tiro

    Owning a Lenovo tablet would change my lifestyle in so many amazing ways-The Lenovo tablet is heaven in a single gadget, all that a lady would ever ask for, top of the range. My lifestyle requires this tablet because it is convinient as it is a pocket size tablet, easy for travelling, no desk space required and as i would be able to use it for both school work and leisure purposes. I will be able to keep my books at a fingertip as i love reading, it would be easier for me to share my life moments with friends and family. Lenovo tablet has perfect picture quality, integrated graphics and I am an aspiring model so making my dream come true would not be much of a hussel anymore, just one click away from making those dreams a reality. Did anyone mention 8GB?? My entire life in one tool, my happy and not so happy days in just ONE tool, buying of memory sticks every year for me would come to an END, nothing to sob about because I would have the best tool/gadget this world can ever offer with so much memory,who still needs a memory stick? NOT A SINGLE SOUL!!! Speaking for myself ofcourse. To sum it all up-I NEED THAT HEAVENLY SENT LENOVO TABLET staying connected would be so effortless with this awesome gadget.

  • Rose

    Many people would love to have the IdeaTab A2107, but I on the other
    hand am in desperate need of this lifesaving piece of equipment! Both of
    my parents are unemployed and since I am unable to pay for my studies,
    It makes me eternally grateful to my sponsors for helping out by paying
    for the tuition of my University fees. Whenever I have homework or
    assignment which sometimes feels like ALL the time, I spend most of my
    free time using the computers on campus in the library because they stay
    open until 00:00 which helps me so much! I would love to own a tablet
    as there is free wifi on campus and during peak times its hard to book a
    computer to complete my homework in time which makes it very difficult
    for me to balance everyday responsibilities with my educational
    responsibilities. The 3G would also come in handy during those peak
    times when the wifi is hard to access! With this tablet I would be able
    to do SO much! namely downloading e-books, as well as assignment
    information, receive emails from lecturers and communicate more
    effectively and easily because I would be in constant contact with them
    about things I might not understand in class. I could download all of
    the extra slides of lectures for self study,use translation apps for my
    German class as well as being able to google any information regarding
    things I don’t know or didn’t fully understand in class which would give
    me that extra edge in the academic world! The Lenovo Ideatab with its
    HD videos would be beneficial by allowing me to download or youtube
    german videos to pronounce the language better as well as how to
    video’s. The 9 hour battery life is perfect because I would integrate
    this amazing piece of technology into every part of my life! I would
    even be able to keep in touch with friends more often by sharing photo’s
    with friends and video chatting to let them know I still care! I love
    my degree and I would love to do the best I can and I know this Lenovo
    Ideatab would help me succeed in ways I never imagined! I have always
    admired the truly spectacular Lenovo brand because they always
    improving and innovating their brand, moreover they are at the leading
    front of technology! Most of the computers on Campus are Lenovo so I
    know first hand the excellence it can produce. Please…………. make me the happiest person alive !!!

  • Juanita Van Heerden

    Hi Nafisa. You might know that I’ve always been a bit technologically behind, but recently discovered the freedom of mobile internet. Being able to do your banking, read email or even just search for a recipe on the net, while you are busy cooking, has changed my life.

    I think the biggest plus to the Lenovo IdeaTab would be its weight, mobility is better if it is not weighing you (and your handbag) down. At 400g, you would not even notice the difference.

    I would not say I need this, but would absolutely love the opportunity to advance technologically.

  • theesan

    Hi Nafisa.

    I made my own RAP VIDEO for this comp, which can be seen here:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/62811286@N08/9465911809/

    And here are the lyrics to the video:

    I would catch a grenade, hit Bruno Mars with a spade,
    Just so that I can prove,
    How much I need this device, to Skype my foreign girl, on the move.

    I’ve got a rusty old laptop, so I would like to add,
    to my collection, a sparkly new Lenovo Thinkpad.

    I can edit all my presentations with Docs2Go
    take photos for the haters and send it to them as a powerpoint show.

    I will use it as a navigator when I can find my way,
    and to sell my ex girlfriends stuff on E-Bay.

    My new tablet will be so cool, I dont even need a fridge,
    Damn, I like me, some ice-cream sandwich.

    Imagine all the music, apps and pics that I will sync
    Its got to be the best tablet on the market, thats what i-Think.

    I‘ll take advantage of 2 networks, because it has a dual SIM slot,
    It’s has a rollcage that will protect it when dropped.

    If I go on about how my lifestyle will change, it will take a while,
    This awesome gadget will introduce me to the Top Billing kinda lifestyle

    I’m sick, dying from old technology, and I’m in debt,
    Please be my doctor, Wired to the Web and Lenovo and prescribe me a new tablet.

  • Marie du Plooy

    A miracle will happen – I’ll change from “Mom” to Super-Mom” and from “woman” to “Super-woman” I am an “old dinosaur” mother of four teenagers, but can’t bear the idea to stay behind and I must admit that I love new technology. But in their eyes … for me; to own and master the new incredible, amazing, unbelievable Lenovo IdeaTab they admire so much? I’ll take the time to configure it correctly – Yes! I am ready to prove my four computer ‘boffin’ children I’ll manage this brand new intuitive Lenovo IdeaTab. Yes, teenagers think they know better and sometimes we over 40’s feel inferior and unworthy… But not anymore when I am the owner of this magnificent Lenovo Ideatab! Thank you! With you and Lenovo I can express the joie de vivre with which “old dinosaurs” throughout the ages have overcome the fears of the future. Lenovo’s beautiful IdeaPad will put a sparkle into my day-to-day life!

  • Ofentse Letsholo

    Well the truth is I’ve never owned a tablet before, nor know anyone who has it but we all “dream of owning them”. My life would change big time because the first experience is always the best experience plus I am going to study networking and this would help ease my studies. I’ve also recently joined Skype(last week) and a portable device to Skype with would be ayoba coz I’m currently using a Blackberry 8520 which has no front camera. I’ve never experienced an Android device before but I’ve heard how contenting it is, it would be great to do so.

  • Kurt Mitchell

    With that roll cage I can I can finally become a stunt driver and still take selfies while my car is doing flips, with me inside it of course, instantly uploaded via one or two network providers, because we all know that network reception can be dodgy at times and what better way to avoid it that to have a dual network sim tray! This would really be life changing, I will be sending you feedback from either Hollywood or the Russian 007 assassin school, since you know that’s how they roll 😛

  • Mujeeb

    Hmmmmm, I want to be that nice guy and say I’ll give it to my mom. She’s in desperate need of a tablet/laptop to keep connected. But first I’ll have to teach her from scratch how to use a tablet/laptop. Reading about the great specs of the IdeaPad I would actually claim this bad boy for myself. Who wouldn’t want one? The dual-sim will be perfect for me to split my work and personal data costs. I’m never in office and always at a client having very limited access to the net (phone only)

  • farzana

    It’d be nice to win something for a change instead of charging it to my credit change.
    No more debt.
    Lifestyle improved.
    Boom !

  • Samantha

    I already own a tablet so I would love to win this for my mother whose bday it is 2mrw. This tablet would change her life from being techno scared to techno savvy. Everything she does now is old school so to speak. She doesn’t even use Internet banking! I think this tablet will change her life in so many ways:
    – check emails on a tablet
    – read more books via reading an ebook
    -use the Internet more to easily browse
    – use Internet banking
    -watch movies
    This would be a great stepping stone for her to move into the techno era and embrace more gadgets 🙂

  • Muhammed

    I have been a disciple of the great Apple. Conversion is generally impossible without trial – so how about throwing it my way? 🙂

  • Simon Botes

    Owning a 7″ Lenovo IdeaTab will allow me to take my favourite books, songs, movies, apps, and games with me wherever I go. It will also make it possible to live blog on the fly and have access to thousands of Android apps. I will also be able to test the apps I built. Having a duel sim slot will also make it possible to have access to multiple networks which means when one network has limited i can quickly switch and keep working. A change of lifestyle? maybe, but mostly making life easier..

  • Bongiwe Mavimbela

    My lifestyle would completely change as I would be WIRED TO THE WEB 24/7. I would be so creative that ideas fill out a whole exam pad then I’d have to change the name to an IdeaPad. I would name this tablet NAFISA cause it will be my PRECIOUS GEM. Lenovo is for THOSE WHO DO and I’m one of those and I’m so ready for a NEW WORLD, NEW THINKING with this IdeaPad

  • Marnus du Plooy

    With this I can fit 8 GB of data, 7 billion people, 600 million web pages, 5 continents, 400 grams, 3G, 2 cameras and 1 big endless dream in just the palm of my hand.

  • Tammy Perry

    So often I get caught up being a wife or a mommy, or a teacher or a social (media) lite that I forget that first and foremost, I AM A WOMAN! WOMEN are powerful, brave and beautiful…but thanks to technology, we can be and do SO much more AND it makes it so much easier to touch OTHER women’s lives…all over the world…in the comfort of out pjs!!! :0) I am a great wife, mommy, teacher, friend, social-lite etc but winning this IdeaTab could improve these areas in my life ENORMOUSLY, give me loads of new Ideas and keep me connected! SuperPowers that ALL women need! ;0) if I win this, I will be a digital whizz who doesn’t whizz around anymore (physically) because I will be able to sit and whizz through the Lenovo world and have time to stop and smell the proverbial digital roses!! Just out of curiosity, I googled the meaning of “Lenovo” and was very pleased to see that it means something similar to Legend, Creativity and Connected thinking! This to me is the ESSENCE of being a woman! We are legendary (goes without saying ;0)…we always have to think creatively and we are always connected!! WOMEN, ND LENOVO…I could not imagine a more perfect partnership! More power to us!! ❤ Thanks for the Women’s Day love!!

  • Fatima ( @Miss_Glamour24 )

    Okay I’m going to be brutally honest! I’ve never heard of the brand Lenovo!!! So I did my homework on it and turns out its quite a rival when it comes to tablets. I’ve been let down by gadgets in the past and this one seems like a dream! Portable, compact, lightweight blah blah blah…well you know the features like any other table! But what really tickles my fancy is the dual SIM slot!! One would think I live in a cave in Afganistan with my bad network reception. This would make my life easier coz I’m always swapping SIM’s in my modem!! Carrying a library of books in my handbag gets me EXCITED!! I’d be able to read your blog more often and not post comments at the 11th hour. LONG LASTING BATTERY!!! Lol that with increase my lifespan by miles as a current blackberry user who suffers heart attacks everyday. More importantly with Lenovo I see the light at the end of the tunnel..its the kind of gadget that makes you live more, laugh more and inspire more.
