CoolTechZone has a new review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC by Varun Dubey. The review runs four pages, and Varun brings up a major point that many reviews of the “convertibles” (tablet/laptop combinations) tend to gloss over – that Tablet PCs are not for the majority of laptop users for several reasons. They end the review by saying:
If you are looking for a small lightweight tablet and wonâ€™t do much more than e-mail and note taking, along with basic office stuff, we would seriously recommend this one for itâ€™s battery life, the extreme lightweight design and the brilliant IBM support, but be ready to pay anywhere from $1800 to upwards of $2000 for a common purpose machine.
That’s the key – these kinds of laptops do not make for good all-round/common purpose machines.
