Conclusion: While the Lenovo X60 is not sexy or aesthetic in design, it is a powerful and reliable workhorse. The X60 has numerous features that are absolutely ideal for corporate and mobile-management use. The touch screen is awesome. Battery life goes far beyond expected norms.
Excerpt: Even though Lenovo’s latest feels like it packs a lot of yesterday’s tech, it’s still a capable machine, at least for business users. The ThinkPad X60 doesn’t truck with such trappings as a touchpad or a widescreen LCD.
Pros: Included X6 Ultrabase adds slim optical drive, four USB ports, and stereo speakers. Available support for all four Wi-Fi standards (a/b/g/n) plus exceptional signal strength with internal EV-DO makes for a wireless powerhouse. LCD is even reasonably legible outdoors.
Cons: Expensive. 4:3 aspect ratio display feels cheesy. Fingertip doesn’t track well on touchscreen and requires substantial and scary pressure. Overloaded with extra buttons, switches, and indicator lights. Would you choose the underside of a notebook, facing downward, as a good place to mount a speak...
Summary: The engineers at Lenovo really put their thinking caps on for the past year in developing the new X60 Tablet PC, the focus was certainly on usability and how to improve the tablet experience. I think they hit a homerun.
