ThinkPad X41 Tablet reviewed


Seldom do we see the release of a device that creates as much excitement as generated by the announcement of the Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC.  The X41 is not only a very nice Tablet PC spec-wise it is also a ThinkPad, and that is what makes it as special as the light weight and thin package.  I have been looking for a hands-on review of the X41 and the wait is over.  Michael Gartenberg has one in his hands and has published a nice review of the first ThinkPad Tablet PC.   Good review to read but if you’re short on time this quote from the article sums it up nicely:

Short review, if you’re in the market for a TabletPC, stop what you’re doing and go to the ThinkPad order site and order one.

Pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?



Nice to see that the review model had bluetooth on it – it isn’t mentioned on the Lenovo website (or wasn’t last time I looked) and it is something I use a fair bit :) As soon as I get over to the US (month and a half or so) I’ll be placing my order!


Too many decisions to make, that is for sure. I think the Lenovo site now has pricing and configurations. Also, check out the X41 non Tablet laptop. The units are virtually identical except for the screen and Tablet stuff so maybe you’ll get some insights into the Tablet.

I don’t have found any good dealer till now and no clue about the market price on this.

Will they be significant low under the price lenovo sets?

Plus as it seems, there are several versions of the tablet and they need more careful inspection, which modell is to be bought. :(

For those brits amongst us, the only resellers offering the tablet X41 (listed on the IBM page, anyway) are insight (Ordered upon request) Hemini (login required to even see the price) and toye computers. Blimey it’s expensive – seems to be roughly 2k GBP (3,645.70 USD) inc. VAT.

Wonderfull. As I am about to buy a tablet, and this really looked like a good machine, I was wondering if I could just go and buy one. So, without testing and so on.

Seems as if I could. (not that there is a way to test it around here anyway *sigh*) ;)
