To give you an understanding of just what this “unreview” is, here’s the Ars Technica Editor’s Note:
Keep in mind that this is not your typical hardware review. While the author spent a number of weeks testing and using the ThinkPad X41 and writes honestly about his experiences, there’s a lot of commentary on the ThinkPad X41, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, hardware design, bad software, and rapidly blinking hard drive activity indicators. Keep that in mind as you read the unreview in the spirit with which it was written
Definitely worth a read, even if you do not own an X41 or are not even thinking about owning one.
