Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet
Source: PC Mag English Archive.org version
The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet succeeds where underpowered, poorly outfitted Windows tablets repeatedly fail. Picking up where the Lenovo X200 left off, the X220 Tablet combines the swiveling multitouch screen with all the features of the X220 laptop, like an industry leading keyboard and rock-solid rugged design. Clearly, the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet has the pedigree for greatness and the performance to back it up, and that's why it's our Editors' Choice for Windows 7 tablets.

With Windows 8 offering a revamp that is specifically designed around touch, and with cheap lightweight devices offering sit-back use, it is difficult to see the appeal of this hybrid design. Inside the Lenovo X220T is probably the best business laptop on the market, struggling to get out.

Overall, we would be happier using a standard laptop or a smaller, lighter tablet for pen-driven input. However, if you need keyboard and tablet capabilities, convertible designs such as this are perhaps preferable to tablets with bolt-on keyboards such as the Acer Iconia Tab W500.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet (X220T) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English Archive.org version
Is Lenovo's ThinkPad X220T the perfect tablet laptop? Not really, but it's as close as it gets. Sure, it's not cheap, its industrial aesthetic won't appeal to everyone, it lacks USB 3.0 and eSATA, and we would have liked a few more vertical pixels on the screen. However, with the excellent quality of its class-leading IPS display, amazing battery life, superb build quality and ergonomics, high-end specifications and ThinkPad reputation, this is the best convertible tablet laptop currently on the market.

Comment

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.


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

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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


Intel Core i5:

2520M: Dual-core Sandy Bridge processor with integrated graphics and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.

1.92 kg:


75.86%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
