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


Although it lacks an optical drive and a touchpad, and battery life could be better, this is a typically well-built ThinkPad.

Solid build quality, Integrated 3G/HSPA, Integrated webcam, Excellent keyboard, 12.1in. wide-screen LED-backlit displa

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

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


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...

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

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

The addition of Windows 7 and a superb touch screen make the already excellent X200 Tablet even more usable.

Superb, responsive touch screen, Good battery life, Compact and lightweight, Excellent keyboard

Pricey, No onboard optical drive, No touch pad, Typical bland ThinkPad look

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC Review


The X200 has a solid chassis and design. I mean after all it is a ThinkPad and lives up to its name and durability. It sports the same matte black design, but new to the X200 is a bi-directional hinge, which is great for presentations, much like the...

Great battery life ; Solid durable design ; Nice pen ; Clear bright display ; Bi-directional hinge

Could use more features, besides getting the dock ; Keyboard keys separated like the Fn keys

The display was clear and crisp, would have liked the touchscreen to compare it to the X61, but no luck with that. The processor was peppy and had no problems running benchmarks. The array of features are good, but some users will definitely need the...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Review


While the X200 has a lot going for it, it does necessitate a few tradeoffs typical of the ultraportable class. First and foremost, unlike the pricier X300, the notebook doesn't have a built-in optical drive. You'll have to invest in a USB-based...
