Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch)

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet is still the best in its class, and now it comes with multitouch capabilities.

Very good battery life. Multitouch gestures works. Multitouch software is neat and fun. Fast hard drive. Light compared to its rivals. Best keyboard in the business. Outdoor screen now available.

Multitouch is a pricey option. Design could use an upgrade. ; Watch our Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch) video review!

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet is lighter than its predecessor, has moved to widescreen format, and gives you three screen options and multiple wireless options.

Lighter design than its predecessor. Superb keyboard and pointing stick. Bright LED screen. Multiple wireless antennas. Excellent battery life. Improved performance scores. Very good speakers.

Still no internal optical drive.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 review: Lenovo ThinkPad X200

 

Lenovo ThinkPad X200

Record-breaking battery life; strong performance for an ultraportable; comfortable full-size keyboard; wide-screen display with a sharp resolution; WWAN and GPS options.

Nine-cell battery adds significant weight; lacks an optical drive; includes pointing stick but no touch pad.

It lacks some basic features you may require--touch pad, optical drive--but the 12.1-inch ThinkPad X200 offers strong performance and the longest battery life we've seen. With a variety of connectivity options and a roomy keyboard, the X200 makes a...

Thinkpad X200

 

Equipped with the new Centrino 2 processor, Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 looks a mild-mannered ultraportable, and yet it can leap tall workloads in a single bound. Its battery life is phenomenal, and the keyboard is huge. In short, this is a much better...

Astounding battery life Great performance and a big keyboard

Lacks a touchpad No built-in optical drive

A full array of wireless communications options come built in: 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WWAN, and even GPS. Before the end of the year Lenovo should offer WiMax, too--and a tablet version of the X200. But if all you need is the world's best travel...

Lenovo ThinkPad X200

 

The ThinkPad X200, Lenovo's first Centrino 2 ultraportable, is powerful and battery efficient.

Performance chart topper. Phenomenal battery life. Industry leading keyboard and typing experience. Wealth of wireless connectivity options. 7200rpm hard drive. Environmentally friendly.

No optical drive. Could be lighter.

Lenovo Thinkpad X200

 

The optical drive is the most glaring omission, although there was none with the X61. If an optical drive is really a must, the X200 Ultrabase dock (which integrates an optical drive) is available for $219 through Lenovo. (Alternately, you can get a...

Lenovo X200 Tablet Review

 

There's no doubting that multitouch is a key buzzword of today, and with the arrival of Windows 7 PCs gain at least software support for two-fingered control.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Review

 

X-series group shot: ThinkPad X61 on top of X200 on top of X300

Powerful performance with the new Intel Montevina platform, regular clock speed processor of up to 2.40GHz ; Runs very cool and quiet thanks to unique fan design ; New widescreen display and extra width means more keyboard space and easier for...

No built-in high-definition video output port such as HDMI, DVI or Display Port ; No touchpad available, just TouchPoint ; No built-in optical drive ; Can't fit it inside a manila envelope for inter-office mail like with the ThinkPad X300 and MacBook Air

Overall though the X200 is yet another step forward for the ThinkPad X-series line and another check in the column for a job well done by ThinkPad designers and engineers

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet

 

Although it lacks an optical drive and a touchpad, and battery life could be better, this is a typically well-built ThinkPad.

Solid build quality, Integrated 3G/HSPA, Integrated webcam, Excellent keyboard, 12.1in. wide-screen LED-backlit displa

No optical drive, No touchpad, Moderate battery life with the 4-cell battery, Expensive

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC Review

 

The X200 has a solid chassis and design. I mean after all it is a ThinkPad and lives up to its name and durability. It sports the same matte black design, but new to the X200 is a bi-directional hinge, which is great for presentations, much like the...

Great battery life ; Solid durable design ; Nice pen ; Clear bright display ; Bi-directional hinge

Could use more features, besides getting the dock ; Keyboard keys separated like the Fn keys

The display was clear and crisp, would have liked the touchscreen to compare it to the X61, but no luck with that. The processor was peppy and had no problems running benchmarks. The array of features are good, but some users will definitely need the...
