Re: Sliding PCs - End of Convertible Tablets? Musings on Design

^^^ Yeah, I admit that I'm self-centered a lot of the times. :D But that's how I get my way! IMHO, Lenovo needs to invest in another line of tablets since the X-series is supposed to represent mobility among anything else. Right now the X220 sits between mobility and power. It is balanced. How balan...

Sliding PCs - End of Convertible Tablets? Musings on Design

The X200T was my favorite laptop that I have ever owned, but its was a little too bulky (thick) and a little primitive during the tablet/laptop transition, which led me to selling it (regretfully). I really want the versatility of a convertible, but I like so many others was kind of dissapointed my ...

Re: Upcoming X1 [pics]

Yeah, the resolution is a deal breaker for some. Maybe Lenovo will rectify that issue in the next iteration (X2?) along with the IPS option (if it doesn't have one yet). Just also wanted to add that the 1.72kg (4lbs) seems to be premature. According to other sources, the X1 is 1.36kg (<3lbs) to 1.72...

It will suffer the same fate as the X300/301. Lenovo, do...

Re: x200 Tablet - nonfunctional Multitouch screen

Are you sure that you have the Multitouch model? Seems to me that it is the standard screen. I was under the impression that all frameless screens (with the thick glass) were non-multitouch/digitizer only on the X200t (as stated on your link). It is an easy way to tell which screen you got.

Re: iPad instead of x200 series?

The iPad is a pretty niche product. It excels at what it does best (surfing the net/reading) and is practically useless in "power hungry apps. IMHO, if you can survive with a netbook, you will thrive with an iPad. The X220 is a different animal and is much more rounded. BTW, an IPS panel will probab...

Thanks for the link. Seems like the X1 will be based on the Huron River platform.

Yes, it is slightly larger adding about 7mm to the front of the laptop (not the back as previously stated). It basically makes the whole laptop level instead of slightly slanted downward. Get the 6-cell. It nearly doubles battery life and you will not notice the difference in thickness (I promise). ...
