Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 hands on video review


The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a Windows tablet for business. Lenovo says it is a 'productive, mobile and reliable device'. Watch our hands-on Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 video review to find out if Lenovo is right!

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is certainly mobile for a full-spec Windows PC. It weighs just 565g. Remember that this is full blown, touch-optimized Windows 8 - you can install and run any Windows desktop software on this tablet. This then is an iPad-style device that runs Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel & OneNote.

Other clues that this is a full PC rather than an oversized smartphone can be found in the connectivity options: there's a full-sized USB port, Mini-HDMI port and a MicroSD card slot for expansion and data transfer.

Connectivity is a strong point with Wi-Fi, 3G, and WiFi Direct. You get an HD display, stereo speakers, HD front and rear webcams and noise-cancelling microphones.

An optional extra is a digitizer pen with onboard storage for natural note-taking, signature capture and document markup. Other extras include a Bluetooth keyboard dock, and with multi-monitor support you could run several screens of this slab of computer.

We took the ThinkPad Tablet 2 for a spin to see if it could compete with other full Windows 8 tablets such as the Surface Pro, and the HP ElitePad  900. See also: Microsoft Surface Pro vs Surface RT comparison review.
