Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review

 

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 review

 

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.

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

Until now, all of our recommendations of Atom-powered Windows 8 tablets have come with faint praise: most of these products have been marred by cramped keyboards, middling runtime and occasionally poky performance. Even the okay one, the Acer Iconia...

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...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 combines touch, all-day battery life, and ThinkPad styling to the Windows 8 Slate tablet market.

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.

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....

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

It does the basics beautifully, but hits its ceiling quickly

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 review

 

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 10 Multimode Tablet Review

 

Business tablet reprise… The latest multimode tablet out of Lenovo is the ThinkPad 8's slightly bigger brother. Can its larger form factor and other design adjustments resolve the limitations of its predecessor?

Excellent battery life, Availability of accessories, Great brightness on AC power, Extremely thin and portable in tablet form, Option for 4 GB of RAM and 64-bit Windows 8.1, The fantastic battery life and the abundance of available accessories

Relatively expensive, especially with accessories considered, Performance throttling under moderate use, No integrated USB 3.0, Keyboard dock does not fold closed, Gets uncomfortably warm under moderate use, Faster overall performance, better port...

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,...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 review

 

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...

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 starts at $579 with the Atom processor, 32GB of storage, and no stylus but is probably sold out in most places like Lenovo’s online store. Then the 64GB model bumps up to $679 but you also get that stylus, and lastly you’ll...
