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 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...

Intel's Centrino 2 platform brings improved performance to Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 ultraportable laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 12.1-inch Tablet Notebook Review

 

For most people tablets are something they hate or love. They really have not caught on as many tablet manufacturers and Microsoft thought they would. Although people who do use tablet's love them and wouldn't know what to do without them. Today we...

Thin and lightweight ; Best keyboard of all notebooks ; ThinkVantage productivity center ; All around protection

I have seen 3 other newer tablet notebooks and Lenovo does the best job at it. If you thing of who is going to be using a tablet it is probably someone who will be walking around with the tablet. It would be quite easy for them to drop the tablet and...
