Review Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Wi-Fi Tablet

 

Lost in the crowd? Tablets with Windows 8 and Intel Atom Z2760 c

Precise touchscreen; Good main camera; GPS; Weight; Good speakers; Memory extension via SD

Battery is soldered in place; Bad illumination level of the LED-Flash; Digitize pen not retrofittable; Low power supply through the UBS port

That Lenovo has not learnt anything from the first ThinkPad Tablet and that the workmanship is still not on par with other tablets.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review

 

Lenovo unveiled its Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 in August 2012, which would obviously be the latest version of their previously released ThinkPad Tablet. The company's first attempt at offering a tablet to its customers resulted in an Android-powered...

If you aren’t completely married to the idea of purchasing a Windows 8 tablet, you can even get a much better experience on a number of Android tablets as well as the iPad. If you absolutely need a lightweight Windows 8 tablet with long-battery life,...

Although it's expensive for a moderate-performing Atom-based Windows 8 tablet, the ThinkPad Tablet 2's design and build quality are excellent, while pen support is a real bonus.

Excellent design and build quality ; Digitizer pen ; IPS touchscreen with good viewing angles ; Full-size USB 2.0 port

Keyboard is an optional extra ; Wired Ethernet on optional dock only ; Moderate performer ; Expensive

Conclusion As with any slate tablet, you're really going to need the optional (£103/$120) keyboard dock (left) to get laptop-like functionality out of the ThinkPad Tablet 2. Although that makes it an expensive option, the ThinkPad Tablet 2's physical...

Is the Tablet 2's great aesthetic and long battery life enough to make up for its middling performance? Keep reading to find out.

Beautiful Design ; Clear Display with Wide Viewing Angles ; Long Battery Life ; Extremely Portable

Keyboard is not built-in ; Limited Performance ; No TouchPad

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is fantastic device when used as a casual tablet or business PC for a mobile sales force. The machine looks great, it's light and easy to hold, and the battery lasts all day. Users who simply want to browse the web or run...

Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright

 

The streamlined and super-compact ThinkPad Tablet 2 is one of the best Atom-based Windows 8 slates we've tested so far.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 combines touch, all-day battery life, and ThinkPad styling to the Windows 8 Slate tablet market. It's not a bad first effort, but rivals currently have the upper hand.

Very compact and light. Integrated stylus storage. Uses micro USB for charging. Very good battery life

Slow multimedia benchmark scores. Intel GMA graphics. Only 2GB of memory. A 32-bit OS. USB port is low-powered. No erase button on stylus. No latch on keyboard accessory

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 combines touch, all-day battery life, and ThinkPad styling to the Windows 8 Slate tablet market. It's not a bad first effort, but rivals currently have the upper hand. It can be your all-day companion running from meeting...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

 

Lenovo, maker of the fabled ThinkPad brand, has had a long and storied history with touch-screen laptop/tablet hybrids. At a time years ago when most other PC makers wouldn't go near the tiny convertible tablet market, there was always a ThinkPad model...

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the best-looking Atom Windows 8 tablet yet, and the optional keyboard dock is excellent. All-day battery life makes it great for travel.

The Tablet 2 is expensive, especially considering the small 64GB SSD, lack of USB 3.0, and generally slow Atom performance.

This Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo scores with great industrial design and battery life, but adding practically required accessories makes the ThinkPad Tablet 2 very expensive for what you get.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review

 

Few companies have experienced much success trying to directly compete with the iPad. Lenovo's first ThinkPad tablet introduced a stylus to the mix, but because it ran a buggy, early version of Google's Android operating system, it got lost in a sea of...

Stylus included ; Runs Windows 7 and Vista applications ; Full USB port ; Good 8.5-hour battery life

Tiny Windows 8 menus ; Underpowered Atom processor ; Cameras unimpressive ; No decent keyboard attachment ; Microsoft Office not included

Lenovo’s ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a huge step up from its Android-based predecessor, and the stylus works great, but its use is hampered by a weak processor and Windows 8’s inability to scale to a tablet-sized screen.

The first Lenovo ThinkPad tablet ran Android and wasn't quite as popular as the company was expecting, but that didn't stop them from delivering a quality product with round two. Today we have the new Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Windows 8 Pro hybrid on...

For those comfortable with Windows 8 who needs the full PC experience without compromise, yet still in a sleek and lightweight portable option the Tablet 2 should be near the top of the list. Add the usual ThinkPad elegance and this is aimed to please....

Before we talk about the ThinkPad Tablet 2, Lenovo's new Windows 8 hybrid, we need to talk about the original ThinkPad Tablet, the one that came out in

Long battery life ; Comfortable keyboard ; Allows for pen input ; Wide viewing angles

Pen support isn't standard ; Bluetooth occasionally causes typing lags ; USB port doesn't work with USB hard drives or external optical drives

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the best low-powered Windows 8 tablet we've tested, thanks to its 10-hour battery and an unmatched typing experience.
