Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X220T

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.

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).

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

2520M: Dual-core Sandy Bridge processor with integrated graphics and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.50":

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


67.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
