lenovo ThinkPad Tablet
18 February 2012
Summary: The ThinkPad Tablet combines a superior media and entertainment experience with the security, reliability and manageability features for which ThinkPad is known to create a true business-class tablet. Designed as a companion computing device for professionals on the go, the ThinkPad Tablet includes an optional digitiser pen, a full-size USB port
Pros: + Accurate stylus, + Enterprise-friendly, + Tough
Cons: - Heavy and bulky, - Poor camera, - Tablet, - Charger adapter, - MicroUSB Cable
Conclusion: Lastly for the IT-savvy business users, there is a Citrix Receiver app which lets you connect to Citrix servers in your company or try out some o the demo Citrix sessions available in the app. As far as connectivity goes, I was able to connect a Citrix farm on my network and log in to a Windows 2008 server, but using the app itself was a nightmare due to the extremely laggy screen (more in the next section).
Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet boasts excellent accessories that can transform the tablet into an on-the-go business machine. But short battery life and some stability issues make it a questionable choice for casual and corporate users alike.
Pros: Full-sized USB 2.0 port. Optional 3G. Excellent, though optional, keyboard folio case and accurate stylus pen.
Cons: A bit chunky. Frequent app crashes in our tests. Occasionally unresponsive screen. Subpar battery life.
Excerpt: On the surface it makes sense. IdeaPad is a laptop line meant for general consumers, and ThinkPads are built for business. You pay more for ThinkPads, but you get more: Higher-end features, better build quality, and top-shelf performance. Because it’s for business.
Excerpt: DinSide "Bring your own device" (BYOD) er et hett tema for dagens IT-sjefer. Hypotesen er at skillet mellom proff- og amatørutstyr viskes ut, ettersom folk vil ha det samme på jobben som i stua.
Pros: Fin ytelse, artig med penn, bra med vanlig USB, funksjoner for proffbrukeren
Cons: Dyr, dårlig design på både program- og maskinvare, tung, stor
