ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC web site is up


Just look around the Internet and it is quickly apparent how big a deal it is when the first ThinkPad Tablet PC is announced.  The corporate world has been asking for one for some time and it is with great excitement this announcement today is being met.  The IBM ThinkPad web site now has the X41 Tablet PC officially unveiled with a 3D virtual tour of the black convertible.  The most interesting items revealed in the specs is the fact Lenovo chose to go with an XGA (1024 x 768) screen even though the X41 has a 12.1" LCD.  The screen offers a 170 degree viewing angleIt is readily apparent the X41 Tablet PC is a beautiful design and the light weight (3.5 pounds) makes this a mobile professional’s dream.  The X41 can run up to 6.3 hours on the optional 8 cell battery.  As expected, the X41 Tablet PC has the same ports and connectivity options that are present on the X41 notebook, and the optional X4 dock can also work with both the Tablet and the notebook versions.

UPDATE:  Laptop Logic has the full specs from Lenovo.

You’re right Kevin you will want that dock most likes although it will be expensive. For pure s/w installation you can get a cheap external USB drive or use another drive on the network. Of course, you often can’t boot from those.

3.5 pounds in a convertible design: sweet! The dock optical drive is almost a must have for software installation and that tacks on another $200+…hmm…I hope these drop in price relatively quickly.
