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.

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 X60 doesn't

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

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad X60 is an ultra-light Tablet PC with a heavyweight punch. The X60 takes advantage of and positively upholds the excellent reputation of the IBM ThinkPad line of laptops. ThinkPads are slightly utilitarian in design, but this is part...

Feels fast and nimble; amazing 4GB RAM capacity; excellent battery life; biometric security

Thick body (with dock); no built-in optical drive; busy keyboard

The X60 has numerous features that are absolutely ideal for corporate and mobile-management use.

Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet (Windows Vista)

 

Measuring 10.8 inches wide, 9.6 inches deep (10.5 inches with the extended battery, which also makes a handy grip), and 1.1 inches thick, the ThinkPad X60 tablet is one of the best compromises on the market for those who want both a full-featured...

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

Hands-on with Lenovo's X60 Tablet PC

 

We already showed you a review of the thing, but now we've got an X60t of our own, and we thought you'd give you our impressions, along with a nice bevy of pictures of this tablet in the flesh. As always, you can find the pics after the break, so lets...

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 ( Core Duo 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD, Vista Business)

 

Since its original publication, this review and the Editor's Rating have been updated to reflect additional test results.

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...

Professional design and look Incredibly fast processor in the ultraportable category Outstanding battery life, even with the T-series processor Keyboard perfect for extended typing Generally excellent build quality Good amount of ports for a ultraportable

Few build flaws are irritating Can get a little warm on the palm rests Poor viewing angles on screen and very bad outdoors Lower resolution and not widescreen Very bad speakers

This laptop is, in my opinion, the ultimate business laptop for those who move around (who don't sit at the same desk all the time). Its immense portability combined with processing power, battery life, professional design, and keyboard comfort make it...
