Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X200t
Elaborately Flexible. Lenovo's ThinkPads have already always had a good reputation in business circles. Lenovo also makes so-called "pen operated laptops" for more specialized application fields. The ThinkPad X200 is such a notebook, better known as a "tablet PC", and costs over 2000 euro. We will reveal if it's worth purchasing in our review.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet's small size, light weight, good battery life and integrated 3G model make it a great choice for anyone who needs to work and stay connected while travelling. The tablet functions work very well for general system navigation and web browsing and handwriting recognition is excellent. It's an expensive piece of kit, so it's only for those of you who require excellent portability and tablet functionality.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablets we reviewed performed very well in almost all categories. <st1:place w:st="on">Battery</st1:place> life was excellent with the 8-cell battery, reaching 8 hours and 48 minutes on the sunlight readable version, and 5 hours and 32 minutes on the touchscreen model. Screen quality on both models was phenomenal, with the sunlight readable display being one of the best screens we have ever seen in our office. Not only was it useable outdoors, but color saturation was high and viewing angles were perfect thanks to the IPS panel.

Windows XP Tablet Edition put tablet PCs on the map. Vista improved its handwriting recognition. Now, Windows 7 adds multi-touch. Is 2010 the year tablets earn their mainstream credentials? Well, that's up to tablet makers like Lenovo. The tablet pioneer has forged its reputation with its X200 Tablet series, which has few equals. The ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch) ($2,000 direct), if you haven't already guessed, adds multitouch capabilities. Multitouch isn't for everyone, but takes absolutely nothing away from the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet's wonderful tablet experience.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
SL9600: Low Power Core 2 Duo chip with a large 6MB level 2 cache and therefore potentially good performance per MHz (but beware of Throttling in the MacBook Air).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

In 1990, Lenovo started to manufacture its own PCs and by 1997 became the market leader in China. In 2004, Lenovo bought IBM’s PC business for $1.25billion. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
82%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
