Rob Bushway over at GottaBeMobile now has his hands on a new 12.1″ Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet, a convertible laptop that you can use as either a Tablet PC-style device, or as a conventional notebook with a physical keyboard.
Among his first impressions
– The keyboard and trackpoint are typical ThinkPad – that is, they are solid and comfortable.
– The X200 ultrabase is a huge improvement over the previous ultrabases for the X60 / X40 Tablet series. You can actually charge two extended batteries at the same time with the ultrabase (the one that’s in the X200 itself as well as one plugged into a charging port built into the ultrabase).
He’s posted some photos of ultrabase comparisons as well as showing where the second battery plugs in.
There will be a comparison to the Dell Latitude XT posted at some point as well (or it maybe included in the upcoming review).
