Summary: The tablet works fine and I like it, but good luck trying install a new program that's not on the menu. Over all the unit seems to be durable and functional .Buyer should keep in mind this unit is set up for business and may not be the best choice for everyone.
Summary: I'm a digital artist, so I've been drooling over the thought of having a tablet I could draw on. I hate the capacitive touch screens for drawing as I'm used to using a Wacom tablet, so nothing out there was ever up to par for what I wanted to do. Then came the ThinkPad. A friend of mine bought it for himself and I started to play with it. He never really used it, so I got it as a Christmas present.
Summary: Just wanted to add my two cents, I make my living as an illustrator and wanted something portable to sketch on. I use a desktop Cintiq for most of my work. I was a bit wary of the Ntrig tech compared to the wacom I'm used to. I've owned tablet PCs before and wanted something slim, portable and simple. I have to say that while it's not a Cintiq, it does the job well and is fun to sketch on. Good line variation and pressure sensitivity in Sketchbook Pro, with no lag.
Summary: This tablet from Lenovo is great. The built quality is excellent, the tablet feels sturdy. Weight is not too bad, you will get used to it. This tablet version 183825u, does come with the pen. The Android operating system is very bad, most of the application crash a few times a day.
Summary: I have had the Thinkpad tablet for about 3 months now and have practically replaced notebooks with it. I work as a scientist and do quite a bit of work on paper. Software: The built in note taking software (notes mobile) is terrible, don't even bother with it. It uses a "smart palm rejection system" that just doesn't work whereas Quill only writes from pen input which is 100% reliable. It won't let you rotate the tablet to the side (which is where I always write on it).
Summary: Pros: -Stylus is BY FAR the best feature. (I don't know why the "professional" reviews like CNET tend to mention the stylus as an afterthought? It's the main reason to choose this tablet.) -Totally replaced my paper notepad for work -Well built (except the micro-USB charging port is flimsy.
Summary: I bought the ThinkPad 1838-27U and happy with it so far. However, I am VERY disappointed that this model does support Mobile Wireless although it has a Slot for a SIM Card! I bought the unit mainly for this feature!!!!!! If you look for this features then search for the following models: 1838-4RU/64G, 1838-PU/32G, 1838-4QU/16G or 1839-3KU/64G, 1839-3JU/32G Yes, Pens bundled with these models.
Summary: The Thinkpad is not the prettiest or the fastest but it is a solid performer. My co-workers with their iPads are jealous of the stylus. I use it primarily for work and I have no complaints about it at the moment. I will be looking forwards to the ICS upgrade. Written from my Thinkpad tablet.
