Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen 2 review


Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a workhorse 2-in-1, but it's too expensive.

Solid productivity performance ; Excellent detachable keyboard ; Unique expansion options ; Fanless design ; Strong build quality test for MIL-SPEC 810G

Not as sleek as Surface Pro ; Can get hot when working hard ; Display doesn’t measure up for the price ; Battery life is just ok

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is not a perfect 2-in-1, but it is a good one. It offers a robust build that’s more resistant to dings and dents than most tablets, and its detachable keyboard is superior to most. It’s held back, however, by a mediocre display...

​The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is like a Surface with a business twist


Imagine the unholy union of Microsoft's Surface lineup and the iconic Thinkpad, and you have the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. It's not Lenovo's first Surface clone -- that would be the cheaper and less equipped Miix 700 -- but it's the company's first for its...

Impressively thin and light ; Comes with a keyboard ; Actually works well on your lap

Subpar battery life ; Keyboard and trackpad aren't as refined as Microsoft's Surface Type Cover ; Stylus feels slippery on the screen ; Was supposed to undercut the Surface Pro on price, but doesn't

With the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, Lenovo made a solid attempt at building a Surface-like device for business users. It's not really stylish, but it's one of the few hybrid tablets/laptops that'll get work done. Unfortunately, poor battery life and a sloppy...

One of the best Microsoft Surface alternatives gets a great update.


The new model, which comes with the keyboard and stylus accessories, features a bigger 13-inch screen.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet review


Lenovo's ThinkPad brand is best known for professional-grade laptops, but it also includes hybrids and even tablets. The latest is the high-end ThinkPad X1 Tablet, which stands out by offering not only a standard keyboard cover, but also a series of...

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Tablet offers modular add-on options, and has a sharp display and a great keyboard.

The Intel Core m3 base model is not the fastest machine around, and adding faster parts and optional modules can get expensive. There's no slot or magnetic anchor for the optional stylus.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 tablet isn't as slick as some other Windows tablets, but its modular add-ons give it a cool built-to-order feel.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet review:


Apparently, the whole world's gone crazy for tablets (or, at least one of them ). A tablet makes the perfect ultraportable companion for browsing the Web, checking e-mail, and watching movies on the go. But if tablets represent the future of portable...

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet (upgradeable to Android 4.0) has several business-oriented features that should bring a smile to the IT crowd, along with digital pen support and a beautiful screen.

The tablet is relatively thick and heavy, with unnecessary navigation buttons and uninspired Android interface optimizations.

If your IT department could design a tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet would be it.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review


Surface Potential… Lenovo's first Surface-style ThinkPad device has a lot of great ideas. Can it translate those into a cohesive, practical product for the everyday business user?

novel kickstand design which improves lap comfort ; good WLAN performance ; comfortable, well-tuned keyboard ; spacious and accurate touchpad with good integrated buttons ; vivid display panel with reasonably good color gamut ; speedy general system...

case, while rigid, is more susceptible to torsion than the Surface Pro and other competitors ; difficult to carry one-handed while open ; middling brightness and contrast pales in comparison to most rivals ; PWM is present at all brightness levels up...

Lenovo was one of the pioneers of the convertible market long ago, but the X1 Tablet ($1,549 as reviewed) marks the company’s first foray into the Microsoft Surface-style designs with their flagship ThinkPad line of products. The goal of the device was...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review: Surface Pro, ThinkPad Edition


If you're going to ape a design, do it from the best. That's what it looks like Lenovo did with the ThinkPad Tablet X1, making a Surface Pro clone with a ThinkPad twist. And you know what? It works.

Great build and design ; Decent keyboard ; Plenty of ports and inputs

Kickstand can slip ; Mediocre battery life

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet could also be called the Surface Pro 4 ThinkPad Edition. It takes everything we love about Microsoft’s Windows 10 two-in-one and adds a ThinkPad twist.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review


Perhaps you're still rocking the third-generation X1 Carbon laptop, and you're not quite sure you're ready to upgrade to the fourth-generation model . That doesn't mean you have to forgo this year's update -- Lenovo has the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, a...

The X1 Tablet is wonderfully designed and is one of the most pleasant two-in-one devices I’ve ever typed on. The keyboard is every bit as useable as what you get on the fourth-generation X1 Carbon — in fact, when propped up on a table, you can’t tell...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet review: A tablet hybrid with extras


This review has been a long time coming and I have spent more time with the ThinkPad X1 tablet than I should have. Lenovo keeps sending us review units faster than we can finish the previous one. The company introduced a lot of devices and new product...

Slim, lightweight, amazing keyboard, versatile with productivity packs, amazing screen for a tablet

Pricey once you start adding things on. Productivity packs add a little weight

This business class tablet is great for business users who need a powerful tablet with versatile functionality and expandability.
