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,...

Lost in the crowd? Tablets with Windows 8 and Intel Atom Z2760 chips are trickling into the market at the moment. The specialty of the ThinkPad Tablet 2is the suite of security features for business customers. Is the ThinkPad Tablet also an alternative...

Precise touchscreen, Good main camera, GPS, Weight, Good speakers, Memory extension via SD, The surprisingly good main camera and the good performance using the touch interface

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

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 review


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...

Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright


Atom-based Windows 8 slates continue to flood the market from every corner, but who would have thought the biggest budget option would be a ThinkPad? At a base price of $729, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the cheapest 10-inch, Atom-based slate I've reviewed...

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 review


In a weird way, my excitement about Windows 8 tablets started with the Motorola Atrix, which is neither a tablet nor runs Windows 8. Basically, the Atrix promised to turn your gadgets into Legos. You have one device — in the Atrix's case a smartphone —...

Solid build quality ; Good battery life ; One of the best Bluetooth keyboards I've used

Gets expensive quickly ; You'll want an external mouse at all times ; Atom processor can't handle powerful apps

Squeezing both tablet and ultrabook into a 10-inch, 2-pound package

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....
