Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad 10

79% Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Multimode Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
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?
79% ThinkPad 10 takes a kitchen sink approach to hybrids

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.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Tablet
Source: PC Mag English
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.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad 10 review: A thinner, lighter Windows tablet with a high-res display
Source: PC World English
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 ThinkPad 10 Review
Source: Slashgear English
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.

Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Windows 8.1 Bay Trail Tablet
Source: Hot Hardware English
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.

90% ThinkPad 10 (review): Great Windows tablet, good laptop
Source: English
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.

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.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.576 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
