The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC
Letís just say that Lenovo continues to get it right with Tablet PCs, and that the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC is a real winner and call it a day. The reason? It is a winner.
Oh, all right, Iíll go ahead and do the review because while I am enthusiastic about the X200 there are a few issues with this Tablet PC. I write these reviews from within the perspective of my usage scenario, which may vary considerably from yours. I do a lot of note taking with the pen, a lot of writing at the keyboard, and like my Tablet PCs to be capable of crunching some video and audio files for GBM. Keep that in mind as you read along. I also encourage you to check out the other posts in the Lenovo/HP Tablet PC shootout , as well as Robís Lenovo/Dell Tablet PC Shootout posts.
Lenovo scored big time with the ThinkPad X60 and X61 Tablet PCs, both of which were a decided step up from the x41. Beyond the screen size we are not seeing such a large jump with the X200, but Lenovo continues to offer users an excellent Tablet PC experience while raising the bar for the convertible Tablet PC form factor. It is an excellent combination of power and mobility. Iíve been using a ThinkPad X61 for sometime now and have really enjoyed that Tablet PC experience as well as the overall functionality of the X61 as a notebook. Although Iím disappointed that there is no high res screen option for the X200 (as well as other later models from other OEMs), I would have absolutely no problem moving to Lenovoís latest. In fact after evaluating this X200 model I would look forward to it.(Source: Warner Crocker, GottaBeMobile.com)
