The Lenovo X41 Tablet PC is the convertible many people have been waiting for and since its release a lot of first looks have appeared on the web. It is clear from these early reviews that the X41 is a true Thinkpad in every way making it a very sweet Tablet PC. TabletPCReviewSpot has published the most comprehensive review of the Thinkpad I have seen anywhere which includes performance benchmarks in addition to a lot of photos of the review unit. I want one.
Check out the entire review for a thorough look at the new Thinkpad and for those who can’t wait here’s some comments from the reviewer:
We are often asked to rate a convertible Tablet PC as two seperate entities; one being a notebook computer and the other a Tablet PC. The IBM/Lenovo X41 exceeds our expectations in both departments. The notebook is a durable, compact and lightweight mobile computer. The solid keyboard and extra IBM features make the X41 a pleasure to use as a notebook. As a Tablet PC, the X41 is easy to hold in one’s arm – even for long periods of time. The writing functionality is as good as it gets with today’s technology. The screen sensitivity is just right. As we mentioned earlier, the screen surface is somewhat smooth, so our preference is to go with a textured screen overlay which doubles as a functional sheild to protect the display from wear and unwelcomed scratches.
With respect to a long history of ThinkPad models, you just can’t go wrong with a Tablet PC that bares the outstanding quality and trust expected from the highly regarded brand name. This first Tablet PC in the ThinkPad line continues to hold up the tradition of business class, top quality machines. We would recommend the X41 Tablet PC to the choosiest of consumers.
