That doesn't look like a tablet, it looks like a laptop with a screen that swivels.

So far the only tablet I'm impressed with is the iPad (because it's light and thin and that's all that's important in a tablet)

Actually, it is a convertible tablet PC - been around for years before tabs like the iPad came out (those took after slate tablet PCs).

Still, I have to *sigh* - manufacturers still don't get that you use a tablet in a portrait form factor a lot, and if 800 pixels wide isn't good enough then 768 pixels wide is even worse. Why can't they make just one tablet with a higher resolution screen - 1080p screens aren't that expensive and then my apps that require 1024 pixel resolution will work with them.

I still use a T61 tablet and have sold the X200s. These are great computers. They are fast capable Windows machines and convert in a tablet. It can do anything and iPad can plus run all the Windows applications. Yes it is a bit biger than an iPad, but you do not need a Windows laptop. The screen resolution is excellent even for long term use. I am looking forward to getting one of these new ones.

Uhh... these style Tablet PCs have been around for years and have been called as such. They're not meant to be consumption devices/toys, they are work devices.

Why do manufacturers insist on pairing powerful processors such as the i5 or i7 with laughable integrated Intel graphics? A bit like a VW bug with Ferrari engine...

What is up with the completely retarded screen resolution of 1366x768? This is supposed to be a high end business laptop and not some silly toy for watching TV on your computer. I do software development and run business applications and spreadsheets a lot and this 1366x768 resolution is killing this laptop for me.

Agreed - the perfect laptop except for the fact that my phone has a higher vertical resolution. So close.
