Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet

 

Moving seamlessly between laptop and note-taking modes, the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet is a superb convertible notebook with a first-rate keyboard--and it's a great tablet, thanks to a responsive screen that accepts input from both a digitizer pen and...

Superb convertible tablet, Shock-mounted hard drive

Expensive, ExpressCard, optical drive not built in

This top flight notebook/tablet hybrid is perfect for students and businesses.

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad X60 Tablet

 

Even though Lenovo's latest feels like it packs a lot of yesterday's tech, it's still a capable machine, at least for business users. The ThinkPad...

Included X6 Ultrabase adds slim optical drive, four USB ports, and stereo speakers. Available support for all four Wi-Fi standards (a/b/g/n) plus exceptional signal strength with internal EV-DO makes for a wireless powerhouse. LCD is even reasonably...

Expensive. 4:3 aspect ratio display feels cheesy. Fingertip doesn’t track well on touchscreen and requires substantial and scary pressure. Overloaded with extra buttons, switches, and indicator lights. Would you choose the underside of a notebook,...

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet (Windows Vista) review

 

When we first looked at the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet in November 2006 , we were impressed by its usability features, including an indoor/outdoor touch-screen display, an improved stylus, and the Active Rotate feature. Since the release of Windows...

Lightweight, portable design; good performance and battery life; comfortable stylus and keyboard; screen automatically rotates when you adjust tablet position; touch screen is usable in direct sunlight.

Expensive; somewhat dim display; lacks S-Video port; price does not include an optical drive.

The lightweight Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet now runs Windows Vista--and remains one of the best convertible tablets on the market.

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet

 

The best convertible on the market gets a serious upgrade, with a more versatile display and more power.

Exceptionally light for a convertible ; Best keyboard ; Six-plus hours of battery life with extended battery ; Generous Tablet buttons

Sluggish hard drive ; Weak microphone and speaker

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet

 

It seemed inevitable that the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 line would include the elusive tablet capabilities, but for many tablet buffs it's been a long wait. I've seen the entire ThinkPad line move through two generations of Intel processorsexcept for the...

Intel Core Duo components. Three screen options. New digitizer pen. Daylong battery life

You'll need the dock for the optical drive. Runs a little warm

The ultimate tablet experience is back with a faster processor, new screen options and built-in EV-DO.

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet 2005 review

 

Spend a bit of time with the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet, and you're likely to become a fan of pen-based computing. This update to the company's ultraportable X41 Tablet includes a few key upgrades on the usability front, including a touch screen...

Lightweight, portable design; comfortable stylus and keyboard; screen automatically rotates when you adjust tablet position; touch screen is usable in direct sunlight.

Expensive; lacks S-Video port; price does not include an optical drive.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet strikes the best compromise between a ultraportable tablet and a full-featured laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC / Notebook Convertible Review

 

The look is of course the same classic boxy black as other ThinkPads, it's professional and distinct looking. Gone from the X60t is the old red and blue coloring Lenovo used to use on the ultranav areas, buttons are now silver and a little plainer than...

Great performance for a 12.1" ultraportable notebook / tablet convertible ; Very good battery life with up to 5 hours on an 8-cell ; Great feeling pen with both pen input and eraser input feeling quite natural, the keyboard input is superb too ; Very...

A little bland looking for some maybe if you don't go for the all black look ; Mono-speaker is tinny and tough to hear as it's on the bottom of the device ; No ThinkLight that other ThinkPads carry (if you've never used a ThinkPad you won't miss this)...

The engineers at Lenovo really put their thinking caps on for the past year in developing the new X60 Tablet PC, the focus was certainly on usability and how to improve the tablet experience. I think they hit a homerun. The XGA MultiTouch display and...

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Review (pics, specs)

 

This notebook model being reviewed is the Lenovo ThinkPad X60, model 170686U. This is the non-"s" model of the X60s and is therefore the evolution of the ultraportable X-series (in this case descended from the X32). This model has a fully volted Intel...

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Portable Computer Review and Prices

 

Just because a portable computer is thin and light doesn't mean that can't have great power. Take, for example, Lenovo's ThinkPad X60. This ultraportable computer weighs just around three pounds, yet is powered by an Intel Core Duo processor and...
