Taking a look at the new Lenovo X220t Tablet PC

I purchased a Lenovo x201t Tablet PC back in November 2010. It’s been a great machine.

The new x220t is every bit as impressive as the x201t, but has a slightly larger 12.5-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen. In addition it has a new ThinkPad battery pack that should provide the user some serious portability without the need to continuously be tethered to a plug. I get about 5-6 hours of continuous use  on a single charge with my x201t extended battery pack. I expect the new x220t will get at least that. Throw in the new batter slice and users could potentially get up to 16 hours on a single charge. You simply can’t ask for more than that.

In my opinion Lenovo tablets are the benchmark by which other convertible tablets should be measure. The only things I would ask from Lenovo if I had the chance to speak with them would be:

  1. Option for convertible models offering 13.3-inch and 14-inch touchscreens. The Lenovo T410s that I have is one of the best machines I’ve ever owned. On occasion I reach up and try to rotate the screen and flip it over, which of course it isn’t capable of doing.
  2. Develop an equivalent slate model

  1. I’m in the market for a new notebook or possibly a tablet. The x220t is high on my candidate list. A feature that really stood out from any other notebook is its IPS screen. At 12.5″, its superior screen contrast, color reproduction and viewing angles are a major plus and will decrease eye fatigue. I’m disappointed it still has a ThinkLight though; why can’t Lenovo just accept led keyboard backlighting…

  2. Yeah, I have to agree about the ThinkLight. I’ve found it useful, but would prefer a backlit keyboard.
