Ever since IBM started making computers, they have been some of the best on the market..ever. This is what makes the price so expensive. Ever since Lenovo took over the brand and started making the same computers, they have been even better than a straight IBM computer. This Netbook/tablet is quite amazing and certainly deserving of the Lenovo/IBM name and the price, which starts at $2,114 but goes up as the options become increased.
The ThinkPad X Series 210 Tablet is not a tablet, per se. Well, it is, but it is not… I know, confusing, isn’t it? OK, let me try to explain. The ThinkPad X Series 201 has a keyboard and a touchscreen, multitouch at that. It opens and closes just like a regular netbook or laptop does. However, if you want to, you can twist the display around and fold the keyboard underneath it to use it as a tablet computer. Do you get it?
Portability & Usability
Let us start with the size and portability of the Lenovo ThinkPad X Series Tablet. If you are worried about the battery life of such a small computer, you need not worry about it with this computer as it promises a battery life of 3.5 hours using a 4-cell battery or up to 7.9 hours using a battery twice that size.
If you will be using your computer away from your desk, or away from anywhere in which you have no access to a power outlet for an extended period, you can rest assured that the battery life of the Lenovo ThinkPad 201 Tablet will work well for you. Of course, there are always workarounds in which the settings can be adjusted to make the battery last longer if needed.
Weighing in at less than 4 pounds, the Lenovo ThinkPad X Series Tablet is a small, sleek computer that packs a big punch. Even when using the larger battery, it still weighs less than four pounds, so carrying it on the shoulder is not a problem.
These days, with all the computer programs available and the way business people use their memory so quickly, you want a computer with a lot of memory space. This Lenovo ThinkPad X Series Tablet/Netbook gives the user the option of different storage sizes including:

It is always a good idea to base your choice of hard drives on what you will primarily e doing with the netbook.
