1 out of 5 eggsThinkPad 2

Pros: Light, Low Cost

Cons: Short Battery life, Will Freeze up and require a reboot when updating or installing apps, First time it updated Windows it failed miserably and would not power down or up. I had to go online and find the user guide to find where the reset button was located and utilize. Overall I'm able to use this tablet about 50% of the time - the rest is spent trying to fix issues.

1 out of 5 eggsFragile Screen

Pros: Light weight

Cons: Screen easily damaged, not as rugged as original Thinkpad Tablet. Warranty support is worthless.

Other Thoughts: Slight drop while unit in four cornered protective cover and the screen died. Not even a scratch or blemish to the case. Even with my upgraded warranty, Lenovo denied coverage and wanted $854 for a screen replacement. By the way you can buy a new screen with 3 year warranty for $95. I won't be buying another Lenovo product again. Unit also blue screened repeatedly during first week of use.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat tablet, mediocre laptop.

Pros: Light weight, long battery life, plenty of power for web browsing and tablet apps, and capable of running (albeit slowly) full "desktop" applications on the go in an ultra mobile form factor.

Cons: Desktop apps run slowly with the Atom processor and only 2GB of RAM, however this is a decent trade off for its light weight, battery life, and cost.

I also wish Lenovo's accessory keyboard offering was a bit better, its just a bluetooth keyboard with a kick stand, it doesn't attach to the tablet in any way, it seems like it would have been trivial to add some kind of clip to keep the tablet from flopping out of the keyboard and crashing to the floor. I really expected better from Lenovo with how robust and durable their ThinkPads are.

Other Thoughts: I was provided one of these from my employer, I am now toying with the idea of buying one for personal use rather than the iPad I had planned on getting. I like the ability to run regular desktop apps when there is no tablet app up to the task and its interface is much more polished and finished compared to android devices I have used. Seems like it could be a real contender to the iPad if more apps take off on the platform.

4 out of 5 eggsnbkg564

Pros: This tablet from Lenovo is well suited for my needs. I was looking for a tablet somewhat similar to my laptop. At first I try the ASUS VivoTab RT which was good, until I realize that the OS runs on a Windows RT (my mistake of ordering from this) with Windows 8. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet takes it a much better feel and runs on Windows 8 Pro and I can download and install certain apps/programs that the VivoTab RT will NOT run or install. The built-in stylus pen works fine and battery life is allright.

Cons: Just need an additional USB port(s) for connecting to external peripheral devices. Wish they could change the graphics card to an NVIDIA or ATI so that it can display better graphics ( I know I know.......this is a TABLET!!!! By installing a high-end graphics card would also call of changing the CPU processor and up the memory chip to a minimum of 4GB or higher)

Other Thoughts: This Lenovo ThinkPad 2 is a great tablet even though a premium price for this kind of tablet running on Windows 8 Pro. Oh yeah.....if you are looking for a tablet, just stay away from those OS running on Windows RT mimicking Windows 8 because those RT systems have certain limitations of certain apps/programs that you can use in your everyday life.

4 out of 5 eggsThe best of the pen-enabled Windows tablets.

Pros: I really love the build quality. Scratch-resistant Gorilla glass on the front; easy-to-grip rubber on the back. I also think it's one of the nicest looking Windows tablets, aside from the Surface.

It's even lighter than the iPad, and easy to carry around with one hand for extended periods. This is a big deal, as many of the pen-capable tablets are around 2lbs, which gets tiresome to hold.

Cons: The Atom processor and 2GB of RAM SHOULD be fine for a tablet. Many apps, however, seem to be tested primarily on desktop devices (a downside of Windows 8 running on such a diversity of hardware). Games with a lot of animations can be sluggish. On some drawing apps, the rendering lags behind the pen.

Most tablets ship with a cheap pen, and the Lenovo is no exception. It works fine for taking notes, but you'll want to get a nicer pen if you're drawing or painting. My wife has a Toshiba pen and it works really well with the tablet.

The (optional, Bluetooth) keyboard is really nice to type on, but difficult to transport as it doesn't attach to the tablet. As a result, I rarely use it. I prefer the Surface when it comes to keyboard support.

Other Thoughts: Most of the Windows 8 tablets provide the worst of two worlds: they are too heavy to use as a tablet, but too slow to use as a laptop. The Tablet 2 solves this by excelling at being a tablet, and not trying to be a "hybrid". This isn't a laptop replacement, but it's a really good tablet.

The ability to run Windows Desktop is nice as the Windows Store finds its feet. That said, it's cumbersome to use on a true tablet and, thus, I rarely use it. If more (any?) RT devices supported digitizer pens, I'd have gotten an RT device instead.

4 out of 5 eggsA great tablet with flaws

Pros: WEIGHT: One of the main reasons why I chose the TPT2 versus other Win 8 Atom tablets is the weight. At 1.3lb, the TPT2 is the LIGHTEST Win 8 Atom Tablet. The Dell Latitude 10 is 1.5lb, the larger Samsung ATIV SmartPC 500T (with 11.6" screen) is 1.65lb. After playing with competing tablets, the slight weight difference IS noticeable. More so, the iPad 2 is 1.33lb and the new iPad is 1.44lb.

SCREEN: The 10.1" IPS touchscreen with a 1366x768 resolution is simply beautiful. Many folks have expressed concern about the low resolution (especially in an age where "Retina-quality" is ubiquitously marketed). In practice, I have to strain to see pixels. In day-to-day use, I don't notice pixels.

If you want numbers, the TPT2 features the best pixel density as measured by pixels per inch (155 ppi, to be exact). In comparison, I DID notice pixilation with using the Samsung ATIV 500T; despite the same resolution, it has a larger 11.6" screen which reduces pixel density (132 ppi). The iPad 2 also only has a 132 ppi. Only the Dell Latitude 10 has the same pixel density as the TPT2.

DIGITIZER: The TPT2 has an "active" Wacom digitizer with palm rejection. This provides for a very usable scribing/annotating tool. Calibration is OK - very usable but slightly inaccurate (see Cons). Despite the calibration issues, I love using the TPT2 with Microsoft OneNote 2013. Writing felt very natural and I had no problems adapting from paper to screen.

Beyond basic note-taking, I can convert PDFs into a OneNote-compatible format that allows me to highlight text and write notes. This has led to a drastic reduction in the number of printed documents. Speaking of, I have never been worried about the pen falling out - it is very securely held within the silo that is built into the tablet.

BATTERY: Although not scientific, I observed *at least* 8 hours of continuous life throughout various uses (note-taking, old-school gaming, Pandora, etc.) with screen brightness around 35%-50%.

PRODUCTIVITY - MS OFFICE: I am typing this review on Microsoft Word 2013 - it works FLAWLESSLY. For my M.B.A. classes, I was asked to install Excel add-ins (specifically, the "Data Analysis Plus" plug-in for Statistics purposes). This and other Excel add-ins are not compatible with Google Docs, Open Office, and other copycat software.

GAMES: The TPT2 is NOT a gaming tablet. A good rule of thumb is that anything prior to 2003 should work on the TPT2, assuming you can somehow make it work in Windows 8 to begin with. However, it is good excuse for loading up old-school games from the 90's from stores that sell downloadable copies. The caveat is that some games require a connected mouse and keyboard since these games obviously do not feature a touchscreen interface. I was able to play Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri with mouse and keyboard. Others folks have mentioned playing other titles like SimCity 3000 and Baldur's Gate.

Cons: DIGITIZER: For whatever reason, the stylus pen calibration is *sometimes* slightly off on the TPT2 but not in competitor tablets. When defining "slightly off," we're talking just a few millimeters off - enough to be noticeable but not enough to handicap non-critical work. The issue is also *sometimes* exacerbated when one holds the pen at an angle. Worse yet, it is exacerbated around the screen edges. I have tried re-calibrating using Windows 8's built-in tool with no success. Many folks online have even said that the manual calibration process makes accuracy even worse than default. The online communities aren't sure if this is a hardware-level or software-level problem, but we're all hoping a future driver update will fix the issue.

STYLUS PEN: An omission of an eraser on the pen is odd; erasing anything is annoying (as the user is forced to click the "Eraser" button in a menu). Also, the pen itself is small (but this is a forgiving issue as a larger pen wouldn't fit inside the thin tablet's silo).

SOFTWARE: This is more of a general Windows 8 issue, but is worth mentioning. One would think that having access to decades of x86 software is useful, but a las, it is not. I really miss "Flipboard" (the popular magazine-style reader available on iOS and Android) and the Windows 8 equivalent "News Bento" doesn't feel quite as polished. Even Microsoft's own "Mail" app seems half-baked.

Other notable apps are missing; there is no Pandora app, no dedicated Gmail app, no Personal Assistant app (e.g. Apple Siri or Google Now), etc. Third-party alternatives are buggy, at best. You can obviously access these services through a browser, but the web interface lacks a sense of polish (especially in a touch environment). App selection will hopefully change in time, but does handicap the TPT2 if you're used to operating in an Android or iOS environment.

Similarly, web browsing is great as long as you use Internet Explorer 10. Other popular browsers, such as Google's Chrome, run pretty poorly on the TPT2. This is due to coding that hasn't been fully optimized for low-powered Windows 8 devices. Chrome doesn't even support pinch-to-zoom (as of this writing), a critical necessity for touchscreen devices. I was frustrated at first, but Internet Explorer is actually not a bad alternative.

Other Thoughts: If you're considering a secondhand Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 ("TPT2"), or are purchasing it brand new, be sure that the vendor has a reputable return policy. Why? In my extensive research, it revealed the first batch of TPT2's manufactured in mid-to-late 2012 seem to be plagued with one or more issues: bad WiFi due to loose plug, poor pen calibration, crackling speaker, screen "lifting" out of the plastic, yellow smearing on the screen, off-centered camera, etc.

I purchased my "27U" from Newegg in late February, and it had a Manufactured Date of 2/7/2013I am happy to report that I have not experienced any of the 1st-run manufacturing problems in my month of ownership except for a slightly off-calibrated pen.

Also, be mindful that there are a variety of TPT2 models. The "27U" model includes the Wacom digitizing pen. Lower/cheaper models (e.g. "23U") may not include the pen, and/or may not even have the digitizer built-in (preventing you from buying a Wacom pen). They also may less on-board storage (e.g. 32gb instead of 64gb).

CONCLUSION: If I were NOT enrolled in a Graduate program (where digitizing capabilities and portable access to Microsoft Office were unnecessary), then I see no need for an Atom-based Windows 8 tablet. Price notwithstanding, other Android and Apple tablets are more than sufficient for content consumption, and in some cases, do a better job at those basic tasks due to their superior and polished App ecosystems.

However, the more I use the Thinkpad Tablet 2 (and come to peace with its limitations), the more I come to love it. My old Vista-based laptop may have more computing might than the TPT2, but the TPT2 wins in portability, productivity and longevity - key needs in my life right now.

If you're in the market for an Atom-tablet, and know for sure that you can live with its limitations, then by all means pull the trigger on the TPT2. It is the best Atom-tablet available in the market today. Just be ready to use that return policy, if necessary.
