Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X41

80% Lenovo Thinkpad X41 laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
Lenovo is a Chinese company that bought the IBM hardware brand last year as well as the trademark for ThinkPad notebooks. The Lenovo ThinkPad X41 is the company’s leading ultraportable design so it comes as no surprise that it has been used as the basis for this take on the Tablet PC. Tablet PCs have had a bad time in the press, mainly as they haven’t lived up to the early hype surrounding them. However, if you approach this machine as a standard notebook but with even extra functionality, then you’ll be closer to appreciating how useful the format is.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


758: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display 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, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
