Lenovo X200 Tablet Review

 

There's no doubting that multitouch is a key buzzword of today, and with the arrival of Windows 7 PCs gain at least software support for two-fingered control.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch)

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet is still the best in its class, and now it comes with multitouch capabilities.

Very good battery life. Multitouch gestures works. Multitouch software is neat and fun. Fast hard drive. Light compared to its rivals. Best keyboard in the business. Outdoor screen now available.

Multitouch is a pricey option. Design could use an upgrade. ; Watch our Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch) video review!

No optical drive, No touchpad, Moderate battery life with the 4-cell battery, Expensive

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet is lighter than its predecessor, has moved to widescreen format, and gives you three screen options and multiple wireless options.

Lighter design than its predecessor. Superb keyboard and pointing stick. Bright LED screen. Multiple wireless antennas. Excellent battery life. Improved performance scores. Very good speakers.

Still no internal optical drive.

Thinkpad X200

 

Equipped with the new Centrino 2 processor, Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 looks a mild-mannered ultraportable, and yet it can leap tall workloads in a single bound. Its battery life is phenomenal, and the keyboard is huge. In short, this is a much better...

Astounding battery life Great performance and a big keyboard

Lacks a touchpad No built-in optical drive

A full array of wireless communications options come built in: 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WWAN, and even GPS. Before the end of the year Lenovo should offer WiMax, too--and a tablet version of the X200. But if all you need is the world's best travel...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200

 

The ThinkPad X200, Lenovo's first Centrino 2 ultraportable, is powerful and battery efficient.

Performance chart topper. Phenomenal battery life. Industry leading keyboard and typing experience. Wealth of wireless connectivity options. 7200rpm hard drive. Environmentally friendly.

No optical drive. Could be lighter.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200

 

Lenovo adds a widescreen and Centrino 2 punch to its affordable and long-lasting business ultraportable.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 is an excellent lightweight notebook for mobile professionals who demand the business essentials: security, durability, and lengthy battery life. Although some may prefer an optical drive or a slightly larger display, the power...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Review

 

X-series group shot: ThinkPad X61 on top of X200 on top of X300

Powerful performance with the new Intel Montevina platform, regular clock speed processor of up to 2.40GHz ; Runs very cool and quiet thanks to unique fan design ; New widescreen display and extra width means more keyboard space and easier for...

No built-in high-definition video output port such as HDMI, DVI or Display Port ; No touchpad available, just TouchPoint ; No built-in optical drive ; Can't fit it inside a manila envelope for inter-office mail like with the ThinkPad X300 and MacBook Air

Overall though the X200 is yet another step forward for the ThinkPad X-series line and another check in the column for a job well done by ThinkPad designers and engineers

Lenovo Thinkpad X200

 

The optical drive is the most glaring omission, although there was none with the X61. If an optical drive is really a must, the X200 Ultrabase dock (which integrates an optical drive) is available for $219 through Lenovo. (Alternately, you can get a...

The wide-aspect Lenovo ThinkPad X200 delivers outstanding performance numbers without sacrificing battery life.
