After a three-month delay, the X1 Tablet is now finally shipping in Europe after being available in the US for several weeks.

Originally announced in February, the tablet/notebook hybrid is now available in Europe through dealers and directly from Lenovo.

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is the spiritual successor of sorts to the ThinkPad Helix series. The success of the Surface Pro tablets likely prompted Lenovo to rethink the ThinkPad detachable into a higher-end form factor to better compete against the Windows tablet. In other words, the design of the X1 Tablet takes many cues from the Microsoft equivalent including the built-in stand and magnetic keyboard base. Core specifications for the Lenovo device include Core M options only and a slightly smaller 12.1-inch display with a lower resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels compared to the Surface Pro 4.

To Lenovo's credit, the X1 Tablet ships with its base as standard and so it does not need to be purchased separately. It also has features not found in the Surface Pro 4 like LTE, TrackPoint, and Lenovo's proprietary port for additional connections or a secondary battery.

The X1 Tablet retails for a starting price of around $800 USD (~720 Euros). Expect our full review on the device in the coming days.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
