Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad 10
Business tablet reprise… The latest multimode tablet out of Lenovo is the ThinkPad 8’s slightly bigger brother. Can its larger form factor and other design adjustments resolve the limitations of its predecessor?

As a tablet in its own right the ThinkPad 10 has a lot to like but is let down by one or two minor niggles, but to be fair some of those are down to Windows rather than the device itself. It’s an attractive business proposition though thanks to the compatibility of its Windows OS, its security features and the availability of accessories that allow you to effectively bridge the laptop/tablet gap.

There are no frills here. The black on black colour scheme makes the tablet look very sleek, and even the logos on the back are darkened. You’ll certainly get approving nods around the boardroom table if you whip this bad boy out. Sadly, there’s no built in stand or included keyboard – you’ll have to purchase those separately.

If you’re after a tablet for general day to day computing – email, web browsing, etc – then for the most part the ThinkPad 10 doesn’t really convince. Despite its impressive build, decent performance and good battery life, the tablet experience on Windows still doesn’t cut it.

The sheer flexibility of the ThinkPad 10 ecosystem is appealing for using a single device -- in different configurations -- at home, at the office, or on the road. In practice, I found it worked best paired with the keyboard cover as a coffee shop or airplane seat computer. On its own, it's a harder case to make, but that's largely because Windows 8 has yet to prove it really works as a satisfying full-time tablet OS.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Tablet is a very good choice for the business user who needs a Windows 8 system that's a tablet most of the time and a laptop part of the time. Long battery life, a light chassis, and a full HD screen work in its favor. The Dell Venue 11 Pro has a stronger physical connection to its optional keyboard dock, a swappable battery, more versatile micro USB charging, and less expensive base price. Even if you add the optional keyboard to both tablets and account for the additional fee for Windows 8.1 Pro, Dell Venue 11 Pro, at $773.99, is still a better buy than the ThinkPad 10 Tablet at $848.99, and thus remains our Editors' Choice for entry-level business tablets.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 has enough performance, battery life and functionality to be a strong companion to your business laptop. Though we wish Lenovo would include pen-friendly software, the ThinkPad 10's accurate stylus provides a particularly compelling productivity experience for users who need to work while walking around an office, hospital or factory floor.

The only thing holding me back from scoring this tablet higher than its closest competition, the Dell Venue 11 Pro, is the fixed angle on Lenovo’s Ultrabook dock. It was that annoying to use on a table with the screen tipped so far back. If I had to buy one or the other, I still lean toward the ThinkPad 10. But I’d pass over the Ultrabook dock in favor of the Quickshot cover to hold the pen and prop up the tablet. Then I’d need to find the ultimate Bluetooth keyboard to go with it.

Lenovo's Thinkpad 10 is a wonderful little Windows tablet, and the keyboard and dock accessories expand its usefulness ten-fold, allowing it to double as a workstation of sorts when needed. The display is exceptionally crisp and bright, and the keyboard dock is very functional -- you can adjust to using it immediately, rather than training your fingers to the often spongy feel of many tablet keyboards. There are no complaints about the Thinkpad 10; if you need a tablet for business or for tasks Android isn't quite up for, Lenovo's newest offering is an excellent choice.

Can a Windows 8.1 tablet truly replace your laptop? Just as Microsoft set to prove it can with its Surface Pro 3, Lenovo also believes it can be done, and its ThinkPad 10 is the tablet it envisions doing it. To some extent, Lenovo succeeds. The 10.1-inch display with its 1920x1200 resolution complements Windows 8.1 nicely, and the Bay Trail platform provides sufficient muscle for general purpose computing chores and productivity software.

While it’s a little on the exy side, Lenovo’s ThinkPad 10 is one of the best ultra-portable Windows machines we’ve seen yet, offering a slim design, great screen, and some accessories that really let you bridge the gap between laptop, desktop, and that tablet you prefer to carry.

The ThinkPad Tablet 10 is a great tablet given its small size. That, coupled with the Ultrabook Dock, even given its noted limitation, allows the Tablet 10 to work as a better laptop replacement than other options in this writer’s view. ThinkPad keyboards are really good, so give the edge to the ThinkPad Tablet 10 as both a tablet and a laptop replacement.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 is a business ready 10.1” tablet that allows users to have full PC experience out of the box. The asymmetrical frame design definitely looks different from other tablets nevertheless the aluminum back and Gorilla Glass encased screen makes it feels good in hand. Lenovo ThinkPad 10 is a Windows 8.1 system powered by an Intel Atom Processor Z3795 SoC Quad Core.
Depending on the model, the device is shipped with either 2 GB or 4 GB LPDDR3-1067 SDRAM. The graphics processor is an Intel HD Graphics Gen7, which powers the 10.1” (1920 X 1200) WUXGA IPS screen. There are two storage options, which consist of either 64 GB or 128 GB; again depending on the model selected. Even despite sizable storage, Lenovo allows expansion with the use of a MicroSD card.
The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 also comes equipped with HD audio with WaveRT for good quality audio. There is an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front facing camera on the device. There is a multitude of accessories that can be connected to the Lenovo ThinkPad 10. The detachable keyboard makes the device more laptop-like and the Quickshot Cover allows the user to take photos with ease.
There is no doubt that the Lenovo ThinkPad 10 is more than capable of handling everyday business tasks, especially with the 10 hour rated battery.
Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):
Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3795: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at 1.59 - 2.39 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
78.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
