The business slate PC packs an Atom CPU, Windows 8 OS and can be ordered with a keyboard stand

Back in August of this year, a leaked company document revealed that Lenovo is preparing to launch a new business-class tablet. The rumors were later confirmed and now the Chinese manufacturer has announced on its website that it will begin shipping the ThinkPad Tablet 2 on November 16th. Reportedly, the mobile device comes pre-loaded with up to a Windows 8 Pro operating system and has a starting price of $649.

Just to jog your memory, Lenovo’s latest slate computer will be driven by up to a next-gen Intel Atom System-on-Chip and offers up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. Furthermore, it sports a 10.1-inch Anti-Glare IPS widescreen display (touch/pen input) of 1366-by-768 pixels maximum supported resolution, up to 2GB of low-power LPDDR2 RAM and up to 64GB of eMMC storage.

Apparently, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 weighs 600g (1.32lbs) and is equipped with one full-sized USB port, a mini-HDMI interface, microSD card reader slot, stereo speakers and two built-in cameras: an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing. Connectivity features include Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G LTE (on the AT&T LTE network in the USA) radios.

Lenovo claims the tablet can be purchased together with a Bluetooth keyboard stand priced at $119.99 and a docking station that will set you back $99.99. As you would expect from a business-class device, the ThinkPad slate PC comes with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip and Computrace Mobile software for enhanced security.

Keep in mind that the Thinkpad only exist because it was designed and engineered by IBM.  That is why this laptop is excellent....

Make no mistake, even though lenovo is a chinese company, the thinkpads are still engineered properly, ive never owned an original thinkpad but the lenovo w510 I own is the best laptop ive ever had. Before my current computer I owned a Macbookpro, it didnt have a pro graphics card to run CAD properly I needed a Quadro or Fire GL based card so it was a pain in the ass to do projects on which required solidworks. (I am an engineering student). I am considering buying this tablet because i don't want to carry around my powerhouse all the time and i need something more portable to replace my textbooks, based on my past experience i would buy it. Apple`s computers look nice but its......not where real engineering is, most of the Engineering programs are on windows. ...

Its amazing how the 'technological landscape' can change so fast, isn't it? "made in china" used to be something you joked about when something was of poor quality. Now when I go around asking for laptop buying advice, I keep hearing that I should get a Lenovo... Could China be to computers what Japan is to cars? ...
