Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet review

Lenovo ThinkPad X201 3626 review: Lenovo ThinkPad X201 3626

 

Lenovo ThinkPad X201 3626

Powerful processor in a 12-inch laptop; excellent battery life; typical ThinkPad-quality construction.

Bulky for a 12-inch laptop; expensive for a nongaming system.

Anyone looking for the power of a midsize laptop in a compact 12-inch body has only a few choices, and none to date tops Lenovo's excellent ThinkPad X201.

Lenovo ThinkPad X201

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X201 wields the kind of power that you don't see in ultraportables anymore, yet battery life is still impressive.

Spectacular battery life. Powerful Core i5 processor. Best keyboard on an ultraportable. Dual pointing devices. Has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile broadband wireless capability. Multiple hard drive options.

Feature set needs upgrade. Big battery adds to weight.

Review Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Notebook

 

Tender Evolution? Lenovo delivers the new X201; an updated and up

Very robust case; Good mobility; Very good keyboard; Various upgrades possible; VGA output is good: up to 1280x1024 pixels; Long guarantee; UMTS module; Long battery life; Good program performance; Bright display with a matt surface

Somewhat small touchpad; Long battery life but the battery itself is heavy and large; Constant noise emission; Display has low contrast ratio and colour space; No eSata, USB 3.0, Diplayport or HDMI

Similar hardware and positioning, the HP Elitebook 2540p. Even the Acer Travelmate Timeline X 8371 has business properties such as a matt display and a docking port but it is only available with a Core i3-330UM currently.

Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Review

 

The ThinkPad X201 is the newest 12-inch ultra-portable business notebook from Lenovo. As a refresh to the X200-series, the X201 showcases Intel's latest Calpella platform. One of the most interesting new processor options included in the X201 is the...

Great battery life ; Finally includes a touchpad ; Great performance

Screens could be better on the X201 and X201s ; The Lenovo ThinkPad X201 is a small notebook that packs a huge punch.

Best convertible tablet computer for business

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet looks like a regular laptop, but it has a trick up its sleeve -- the 12.1-inch display swivels on its hinge to fold flat, turning the ThinkPad into a tablet computer. Experts say the ThinkPad X201 Tablet is the...

Faster processor than previous versions, optional touchpad, excellent full-size keyboard, matte display doesn't attract glare

Expensive, poor speakers, battery life is shorter than its predecessor, multitouch display is an optional upgrade

Thoughts: Lenovo ThinkPad X201 notebook

 

Not too long ago the 12-inch ThinkPad received its 2010 refresh. While the T series got a significant update (thus being changed from the T400 to the T410) the X series was simply changed from the X200 to the X201. That means internal components were...

Lenovo ThinkPad X201 3626 – 12 inch laptop with Core i5 chip

 

Not many brands in the market have made as big as Lenovo ThinkPad in the laptop market. These systems have an iconic feel and not many changes have been done to its looks over the past few years. The feature set lives up to your expectations and its...

Power full processor crammed in a 12 inch laptop, good battery life, quality construction

Bulky, expensive

This is a business laptop targeted towards businessmen who want a power full notebook in a small chassis. All this will cost you a lot more than a standard notebook though.

Lenovo Thinkpad X201 review

 

Solid build quality and a comfortable keyboard are expected of a ThinkPad; the X201 adds desktop performance and a half-day of battery life
