Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 review: the great desktop pretender
17 July 2014
Conclusion: The high US$699 price, weight and lack of truly useful features drags the Tablet 2 down. There was never a situation where my smartphone or small-form factor iPad Mini couldn’t do a better job than the Tablet 2. The pen offers some novelty value and is highly accurate, but it scratched my display.
Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 starts at $579 with the Atom processor, 32GB of storage, and no stylus but is probably sold out in most places like Lenovo's online store. Then the 64GB model bumps up to $679 but you also get that stylus, and lastly you'll be entering the $900 range for 3G/4G...

Cons: Very expensive plastic case underperforming.

Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 review: solid Windows 8 tablet
2 July 2013
Excerpt: The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 is a business tablet and competes with the HP ElitePad and the Dell Latitude 10, but these three devices all have their own take on the concept. The Elitepad resembles an iPad quite a bit, the Latitude is a bit of a fatty and this Lenovo is different in its own right.
Conclusion: Atom’s limitations are easy to spot but if you ease the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 down the path of proper computing (writing documents, image and video editing, casual gaming) you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Summary: The ThinkPad Tablet 2's Atom Z2760 processor is dual-core and hyper-threaded, but it's still an Atom processor. Add in just 2GB of DDR2LP (low-powered) at 800MHz and it's obvious this computer isn't going to be breaking any land speed records--not while running desktop Windows.
Pros: Runs Windows 8 Pro, Fantastic keyboard, Excellent battery life, Great screen, Optional stylus
Cons: Keyboard dock has no hinge, Won't replace laptop for most business people, Optional broadband package is expensive, Fingerprint magnet
