Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet

Source: PC Authority English
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a peculiar mix of the wonderful and the awkward, then, but how does it stack up against its key rivals, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and HP Elite x2 in terms of the overall package? In some ways it surpasses both of them, especially given that neither has the facility to add components in the way the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 does, and it’s a match for both in terms of its ergonomics.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet looks great on paper, but the more time we spent with it the more puzzled and unconvinced we were by its flawed conception and design. The existing modules are finicky to dock, expensive and are of limited utility and thus questionable value.

For the ThinkPad diehards out there, you've just met the best business-bent tablet that money can buy. However, no product exists in a vacuum. For as impressive as the ThinkPad X1 Tablet is, both Apple and Microsoft still rule the roost when it comes to ergonomics and cost-effectiveness. Unless you're running several presentations a day on the go or have incredible love and loyalty for AccuType keyboards, there isn't a terribly compelling reason to buy this tablet over either Microsoft or Apple's.

80% A Surface Pro 4 rival you can count on
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet surpasses its rivals in more ways than one, but is held back by just a couple of flaws. Its sheer upgradability is the star here, with plenty of add-ons and extras you can get with it, something the likes of the Surface Pro 4 and HP Elite X2 don’t have. The X1 Tablet is near flawless in its design too, with fantastic ergonomics paired with its super slim and lightweight portability. There are some parts of the design that are a bit clunky, especially considering how awkward it is to attach any of the extras, but those are options some many never have to engage with.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1
Source: Hot Hardware English
Microsoft deserves credit for popularizing and, to a great extent, legitimizing the 2-in-1 category, which is beginning to take the place of dedicated tablets. Why buy a standalone slate when you can have a tablet that doubles as a laptop? However, it's hardware partners like Lenovo that are making the category more interesting, and that's certainly true of the ThinkPad X1 Tablet with its modular approach to computing.

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is not a perfect 2-in-1, but it is a very good one. It competes with or exceeds the Surface Pro 4 on almost every benchmark, and offers a much nicer keyboard. In some ways, the ThinkPad X1 even manages to compete with the Surface Book, with similar processing power and graphics capability fit into a much smaller form factor.

Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet could also be called the Surface Pro 4 ThinkPad Edition. It takes everything we love about Microsoft’s Windows 10 two-in-one and adds a ThinkPad twist. There’s a lot to like here. The build quality is superb, and the full complement of ports, including USB Type-C, can’t be beat. The mobile keyboard is one of the better we’ve tested, and ThinkPad fans will love the inclusion of the trackpoint. The modular expansions also give the ThinkPad X1 Tablet unique features unrivaled by other devices.

If you’re the type of person who focuses mainly on benchmarks, you might be better off buying a competing convertible tablet. I still rate the ThinkPad X1 Tablet highly, though, since its performance ranks in the “good enough” category for many applications. Conveniences like the kickstand and the pen loop give the ThinkPad X1 Tablet an edge and make it competitive among the ranks of the best convertible tablets.

Source: Engadget English
With the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, Lenovo made a solid attempt at building a Surface-like device for business users. It's not really stylish, but it's one of the few hybrid tablets/laptops that'll get work done. Unfortunately, poor battery life and a sloppy keyboard keep it from being a truly must-have device.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review
Source: Slashgear English
The X1 Tablet is wonderfully designed and is one of the most pleasant two-in-one devices I've ever typed on. The keyboard is every bit as useable as what you get on the fourth-generation X1 Carbon -- in fact, when propped up on a table, you can't tell the difference between typing on a Lenovo laptop and typing on the convertible tablet system. The arrangement has the same limitations as any 2-in-1 tablet/keyboard setup -- you won't be able to type on it if you're not at a desk/table, namely. Those who are familiar with 2-in-1 tablets in general will find the X1 Tablet to be one of the best offerings currently on the market.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a thoroughly modern tablet with a slim and light design and a simple yet sturdy keyboard connection. Optional modules seem to be the in thing for 2016 with everything from smartphones to tablets offering some kind of add-on functionality for a price. The Productivity module is likely to be the most popular since it increases battery life and adds a few key ports.

Overall, the ThinkPad X1 is one of the best business 2-in-1s yet. Unlike the Surface Pro 4, the Lenovo comes with a keyboard. Plus, the Lenovo's display is one of the best on the market and its performance (at least with Core m7) stacks up well against the competition. The modules are a cool idea, and adding the $150 backup battery provides a huge advantage over the X1's competitors.

My processor concerns aside, the Thinkpad X1 Tablet is a fairly compelling device. Thanks to its modular focus, the tablet has the potential to be one of the most flexible prosumer devices around. However, with pricing starting at $899 it’s entering a pretty competitive space of the market, which is currently dominated by powerhouse devices such as the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4.

12.1":

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.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


79.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
