The Register Reviews Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

The Register’s Bob Dormon says Lenovo’s business-centric ThinkPad Tablet 2 runs a very capable dual-core Cloverview Intel Atom Z2760 1.8GHz processor and a 32-bit version of Windows 8 Pro, with 2GB of LPDD2 RAM on board and 64GB of e-MMC Flash storage. Dormon rates theTablet 2′s 10.1in IPS screen responsive, crisp and bright, but not dazzling noting that at 1366 x 768 pixels, this screen real estate scale helps when it comes to precision tapping.

However, he observes that notwithstanding all the proclamations he’s made about Windows 8 needing a touchscreen to be useable, the touch side of things can get tiresome, and what he really missed is a keyboard, although this doesn’t have to be a problem if you buy Lenovo’s OB47270 Bluetooth keyboard stand, an elegant albeit costly option, and if you stick with the Modern apps, then it’s easier to cope without a keyboard

He notes that the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is Bluetooth 4.0 savvy as well as being equipped with a full-size USB port enabling peripheral alternatives. Still, this is a tablet and naturally features a virtual keyboard, but you also get a slim, pressure sensitive Wacom-based stylus that slots into the tablet body.

In summary, Dorman thinks the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is an extremely likable Windows 8 Pro tablet due to its capacity to function with typical PC peripherals when you need it to, but as a standalone device though its Desktop mode shortcomings soon present themselves.
