Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

 

Lenovo's X200s has qualities we've come to expect from a ThinkPad—and that's a good thing. Its magnesium alloy chassis is wrapped in the line's signature matte black finish, making for a notebook that feels sturdy and looks serious. And at...

Great value ($500 less than competitors); sturdy build

Lacks optical drive, touchpad, and webcam

The upshot is that the X200s is portable, sturdy, and up to the task of your average workload. It’s also $500 less than its competitors. While we could certainly take that money and buy Lenovo’s docking station with an optical drive for around $340, or...

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad X200s Notebook

 

Netbooks? No thanks! Mini-notebooks, as before, define the image

Superb case stability; Docking port; Extensive communication possibilities; 3 year warranty ex-factory; Biggest possible dimensioning of the keyboard; Full-fledged and pleasant to use keyboard; Bright, outdoor suitable display; Low emissions with...

Connection positioned on the case; No touchpad; Present hard disk in the test device

Business notebooks of the classic 12" subnotebook category, especially devices from Dell and HP. Because of the striking price differences maybe also larger sized mini-notebooks.

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 have responded by updating their well-esteemed ThinkPad X200 Tablet with Windows 7 and...

Still, $1,689 is the cost of entry for the multitouch X200 Tablet, and you’re getting a sturdy, reliable machine that’s all set for what we keep getting told is the next phase in finger-control. How relevant that is to you depends very much on what you...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet Review

 

To compete in the tablet market, Lenovo offers a touch-screen and Wacom-enabled version of its 12-inch ThinkPad X200. Lenovo has a standard Wacom-enabled X200, as well as a two-finger multi-touch version for a $125 upgrade. With a starting retail price...

Beautiful IPS displays ; Good performance ; Excellent battery life

Touchscreen isn't as good ; Only 2-finger multitouch support

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablets we reviewed performed very well in almost all categories. Battery life was excellent with the 8-cell battery, reaching 8 hours and 48 minutes on the sunlight readable version, and 5 hours and 32 minutes on the...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s Review

 

Since the X200s is designed to be a notebook for road warriors it uses an Intel Core 2 Duo low voltage (LV) processor to provide better battery life. While an LV processor does mean slower performance compared to the regular voltage Core 2 Duo...

Surprisingly good performance from a low voltage processor ; Runs very cool and quiet thanks to unique fan design ; New WXGA+ widescreen display and extra width means more keyboard space and can fit enough on the screen for dual-window viewing ; Great...

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 ; Costs $500 more than the X200

Overall, the X200s is an excellent business ultraportable due to its durability, light weight, great battery life (at least with a 9-cell battery) and more than adequate performance when it comes to business related applications

Expert review by:

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s Review

 

This ultraportable's 10-plus hours of endurance and sturdy, lightweight design make it worth the splurge.

Extremely long battery life, Excellent keyboard, Very light, Good productivity performance

Relatively expensive, No integrated optical drive or webcam, Lacks mobile broadband option

Audio quality is what you'd expect from a business machine: decent volume with a weak bottom end. Still, the dedicated volume controls above the keyboard were convenient for quick volume adjustment and muting.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet

 

Featuring durability, security, and the power of Intel's Centrino 2 platform, this notebook offers strong performance and an even better tablet experience than its predecessors.

Priced at ’,323, the ThinkPad X200 Tablet is yet another excellent business machine from Lenovo. It contains all of the security, durability, and performance you'd expect from the company, in addition to smooth tablet functionality. If you prefer pen...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200

 

While Lenovo's ultra-sleek X300 may have stolen the show as the company's MacBook Air competitor back in April, the machine's astronomic price tag also left most would-be buyers pressing against the window glass like gawkers at a Maserati dealership....

Lightweight; powerful processor; outstanding build quality; respectable price

Lacks an optical drive and a touchpad

for lightweight travelers, this systems hard to beat.

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 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
