Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X60 Tablet

Only a couple of shortcomings jumped out at us. One is that the screen latch has to be manually pushed into the case to secure the lid; otherwise it sticks up in the way. Another is the absence of a next-generation ExpressCard slot - a strange omission from such an otherwise top-flight notebook. The Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet's versatility as a tablet and its long list of excellent features make it a great choice for mobile professionals.

Lenovo's previous tablet effort, the X41 Tablet PC, received a barrage of criticism for being £600 more expensive than its non-tablet sibling. Sadly, it's the same here - the touchscreen, 512MB more RAM and 20GB more hard disk space add £400 to the price. There's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel: one SKU of the X60 Tablet (part code: UU2K7UK) has a significantly smaller battery, but otherwise an identical specification, and costs a far more reasonable £1,149 (£1,350 inc VAT) from www.pcwb.com. Well built and with astonishing battery life to boot. But this particular SKU isn't great value for money.

Though pricey, the ThinkPad X60 offers the best of both worlds if you're choosing between a regular notebook and a tablet PC.

When we first looked at the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet in November 2006, we were impressed by its usability features, including an indoor/outdoor touch-screen display, an improved stylus, and the Active Rotate feature. Since the release of Windows Vista Business Edition, though, we were curious to see how our favorite tablet performed with the new operating system. To that end, we got our hands on an X60 Tablet that had been refreshed with a faster processor, more RAM, and a larger, faster hard drive. These enhancements were enough to sustain the X60 Tablet's reputation as an excellent tablet with enough power for demanding business use. It's still expensive--our review unit cost $2,467, and that still doesn't include even an external optical drive--but the ThinkPad X60 Tablet remains one of our favorite convertibles for highly mobile business users.

The original IBM/Lenovo X41 convertible has been our favorite ultralight Tablet-notebook combo since it premiered nearly two years ago, but its poky CPU has long since been outpaced by the competition. We are happy to see that everything we loved about the X41 is still here in the new X60 Tablet. Lenovo introduces some impressive and unique Tablet features here that put even more distance between it and the competition. And while it's not perfect, the X60 Tablet overcomes some shortfalls to make sure Lenovo remains king of the convertible hill.

According to IDC, convertible tablet PC unit shipments will reach more than one million this year and more than four million by 2010. With more industries relying on tablet PCs, tablet customers have included mobile professionals in fields such as healthcare, insurance, real estate, government and sales. Students in particular claim to prefer tablet PCs over a traditional laptop because of their lightweight and ease of use in taking notes.

It seemed inevitable that the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 line would include the elusive tablet capabilities, but for many tablet buffs it's been a long wait. I've seen the entire ThinkPad line move through two generations of Intel processors—except for the ThinkPad tablet. Whether you're in a business or a classroom environment, the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet now has the goods to be your tablet of choice. It gets a healthy dose of upgrades, including a dual-core processor and integrated EV-DO, and you get a host of new features (from the digitizer pen to the new screen options) to complement performance. See how the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet measures up to similar systems in our side-by-side tablet PC comparison chart.

The engineers at Lenovo really put their thinking caps on for the past year in developing the new X60 Tablet PC, the focus was certainly on usability and how to improve the tablet experience. I think they hit a homerun. The XGA MultiTouch display and SXGA+ offering are outstanding options, the MultiView is also really nice for a tablet pc where you'll be using it in all types of lighting environments and holding it at various angles. The port selection for an ultraportable is superb. The keyboard is as good as ever. The build is ThinkPad solid, there's no flex anywhere on the body. The battery life is as good as it can be. And best of all the performance with the Core Duo and 2.5" 7200RPM hard drive is vastly improved over the X41t. Pricing starts at around $1,700 initially on the X60t, this will be pricey for some, but for business users this could be a formidable tool and if you're off to college for 4 years maybe you could justify the cost if you think of it as an investment in your ability to perform better in school and be more efficient.

Spend a bit of time with the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet, and you're likely to become a fan of pen-based computing. This update to the company's ultraportable X41 Tablet includes a few key upgrades on the usability front, including a touch-screen display, an improved stylus, and the new Active Rotate feature (more on that below). When it's not folded into a tablet, the ThinkPad X60 Tablet also makes a good ultraportable laptop, with a Core Duo processor and decent-size 80GB hard drive. You'll have to pay to have the best tablet on the block, though: the X60 Tablet's price starts at $1,699, but our review unit included a number of upgrades that brought its price to $2,299--and that still didn't include even an external optical drive.

If buying a notebook were all about style, the Lenovo Thinkpad X60 wouldn't even reach the qualifying stages of the beauty contest, but for those who want power and performance over looks, it is top of its class. The black and somewhat bland chassis may have Plain Jane looks but it hides a reliable, solid workhorse PC. The Thinkpad X60 is a Core Duo Centrino notebook, and our review unit came with an eight-cell long-life battery to complement the standard four-cell version. When this bigger battery is used, it juts out from the back of the notebook but the total weight is just 1.6kg, making it extremely easy to carry around.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


L2400: » 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.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
