91% Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable review: Great performing Windows tablet with detachable keyboard
Source: Techaeris English
If you’re in the market for a Windows 10 detachable tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable is a pretty solid choice given its specifications, performance, battery life, and price point when compared to the competition.

70% Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable
Source: Wired Magazine English
The base model ThinkPad X12 starts at $1,100, which gets you an 11th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 128-gigabyte SSD. It's pricey, but thankfully the keyboard is included. The model Lenovo sent me is a step up, with an 11th-generation Core i5 processor, 16 gigabytes of RAM, and a 512-gigabyte SSD. This configuration will set you back $1,279. It's the one I'd suggest for most people. You can save a little money by going back to 8 gigabytes of RAM, which is enough for light-duty computing. There's also a higher-end i7-based configuration, but that strikes me as overkill for this machine. This could change with Windows 11 supporting Android apps, thus (theoretically) making tablet-based gaming more appealing, but that's still too far in the future to say for sure.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable Gen 1 review: A value tablet for business
Source: PC World English
Lenovo has a respected history in the tablet market. I fondly recall the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 tablet, especially the smart kickstand design that the company, sadly, later abandoned. I’m left thinking that Lenovo’s return to the tablet market after a year or two off feels a little lacking. Of the two Tiger Lake tablets I’ve tried, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7+ feels like the superior offering, both in physical design as well as in several of our benchmarks. That said, the ThinkPad X12 Detachable Gen 1 would suffice for day-to-day office use, and it’s much more affordable than the Surface Pro 7+. From a value perspective, the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable Gen 1 is clearly the superior tablet.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable review: Solid Surface Pro alternative
Source: CNet English
Lenovo's ThinkPad X12 Detachable is a 12.3-inch tablet with a built-in kickstand and detachable keyboard. If that sounds familiar, it's because it's essentially the same as Microsoft's Surface Pro. The Surface Pro hasn't changed much at all for generations, though. The X12 may be familiar-sounding but it's a fresh design with new components -- including Intel's 11th-gen processors and Thunderbolt 4 support. Lenovo also includes its keyboard cover (an add-on purchase for the Surface Pro) as well as an active pen. And while it might not have the stylish appeal of Microsoft's top tablet, the X12 is built to survive extreme heat and cold, dust, drops, spills and impacts.

Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable Tablet-Laptop Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable, a 12.3” Surface Pro competitor with a 3:2 aspect ratio display and a pleasingly rigid and ergonomic detachable ThinkPad style keyboard. It runs Windows 10 on Intel 11th gen CPUs with Iris Xe graphics and Thunderbolt 4. The X12 has a magnesium alloy casing and passes a variety of MIL SPEC tests, yet its weight is close to the Surface Pro 7. The tablet supports pen (included with US models) and touch, has optional 4G LTE, a backlit keyboard, Windows Hello IR camera and a fingerprint scanner. This is Lenovo’s first detachable ThinkPad since the 2018 ThinkPad X1 Tablet.

Lenovo had a very clear vision with the ThinkPad X12 Detachable: make a better version of the Surface Pro 7+ for business users who need ultimate portability. The X12 achieves this goal by delivering excellent battery life in a lightweight chassis without sacrificing (much) performance. The 12.3-inch display is adequately bright and vivid, and the detachable keyboard (which comes bundled with a stylus in the US) is comfortable to type on.

One of the key reasons to choose a business-focused tablet from Lenovo, Dell, or HP over Microsoft’s Surface Go or Pro offerings has traditionally been IT security and manageability features. Indeed, the ThinkPad X12 comes with plenty of specialized features, including standard TPM and optional vPro. But Microsoft has recently made new overtures to business customers in the form of the new Surface Pro 7+ unveiled at CES 2021 this week, and the Pro 7+ includes many of those same features. So the manageability and security advantage of a ThinkPad tablet isn’t quite as exclusive as it once was.

12.30":

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.

This weight is typical for small tablets.


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.


83%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
