Not a lightweight tablet

By 

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad X61t Tablet PC:

Computer is good except it is very heavy, more than 4 pounds with the battery. To make the computer a fully functional station, you need the X6 UltraBase, which you can add optical drive and 4x USB ports, as well as other old fashion ports such as parallel port and serial port. Included stylus will disable finger or palm touch, which is good for taking notes. There is no touchpad for this model, only the next generation (X200t, X201t) has the touchpad.

PROS:Multi-Touch, resistive type of touch screen (maybe CONS to other).ThinkPad reliable quality, TrackPoint mouse with various caps.

CONS:Heavy, compares to regular X61 and X61s.No Optical Drive.PC card slot only. No ExpressCard Slot.Expensive.Corner finger touch is not responsitive most of the time.

Lightweight and powerful the Lenovo X61 Tablet is a good laptop.

from Philmont, NY

Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad X61t Tablet PC:

As a longtime IBM Thinkpad user, I was used to the "small red dot" for a mouse and hated the "touch pad" that most laptops boast these days. So when looking for a replacement computer, that was the first thing I looked for.

In came the Lenovo Thinkpad.

The smaller size, at 12ish inches, the lighter weight, the mouse I wanted and the tablet were all a plus. I was pleased when I opened the box and picked up the computer -- shocked in fact by the weight. (Then I realized I still had to put the battery on and that's more than half the weight of thing!) After I powered up the computer, I noticed that Windows Vista was slower than I wanted, but an operating system isn't a deterant by any means since you can change them like you change diapers when they get cumbersome.

The Lenovo tablet is a nifty little thing. I like how you can use the pen on screen without swinging the screen into "tablet" position, just leaving it open as if you were going to type on it. I'd never owned a tablet before, but I like the small size of this tablet since it fits in your hands/arms like a normal college notebook would and makes for ease of use.

One of the downsides is that the small latch that held the tablet closed when it tablet position (ie screen up, covering keys for pen use) quickly because useless and actually fell off. So now, I have no way of holding the tablet in that position, it just kind of rests there without anything to firmly keep it there. If you have small children or are not very, very careful you run a serious risk of ripping the screen right off the base. That's the one complaint I have about the Lenovo tablet.

I wish it had a CD drive, but I can live with having to plug in my HP external DVD writer to install programs and/or do anything CD related.

The wireless Interent works wonderfully, I never had a problem hooking up to any router. All preinstalled programs worked with no problem and everything I've ever put on the computer has been compatible and given me no problem. So far I've had no software glitches to speak off and I've owned the computer for a few years now.

All in all, a decent tablet for those looking for an older model at a cheaper price.
