Help Me Choose My Tablet - Thinkpad Tablet 2, Vivotab, Acer W700, Etc.

Question: Help Me Choose My Tablet - Thinkpad Tablet 2, Vivotab, Acer W700, Etc.

hi guys i really want to try a windows 8 tablet and i plan to buy it either by the end of this month or by next January. I am confused on what to pick though
First of all, the reason why I want a windows 8 tablet IS because i like the interface. but more importantly, i need metatrader and cTrader in legacy app as im a full time forex trader. I have metatrader in my iphone but you cant seriously compare that with the windows version (no tabbing, no lines drawing, no fibonacci, etc.). cTrader doesnt even exist there.
im looking to replace my macbook pro (which btw i also installed windows 8 on it through parallels virtual desktop) with a windows 8 tablet to support my trading while im outside
So basically I dont need a super i7 tablet or something. However, im curious to know how windows 8 atom tablets perform. I have seen enough reviews and some people says atom tablets perform badly in legacy apps. Question is, how bad is that bad? Does it lag so bad even though i dont need to run heavy apps like adobe? I only need to run these trading apps which btw are very light. You can compare them with MS paint i believe, just with constant connection.
would it do well in atom tablets? I dont want lags when i switch from win8 native apps to metatrader and cTrader.
next question - how does windows 8 tablet on-screen keyboard work with legacy apps? Would i have special gesture to show up the on-screen keyboard or it automatically appears when i touch the screen? I personally dont believe i would need a physical keyboard if the on-screen keyboard always show up at the right time (my biggest fear is that it won't show up when i supposed to type in legacy apps)
at the moment, here are what I currently want and my doubts about them:
1. Acer Iconia W700 - it comes with i3 so i dont have a single doubt about its performance. However, it's more than 1kg which is heavy. I also doubt the battery life despite it comes with bigger battery as compared to surface pro. My question about this tablet is whether it comes with scratch resistant glass such as corning gorilla glass or not? Because i cant find any information about it anywhere
2. Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 - it's my most preferred W8 atom tablet atm because it has smaller screen 10" which is perfect imo. My concern about this tablet has been stated above. I doubt about its performance as it comes with atom processor. I also have doubt if i dont buy the bluetooth keyboard, would it have any typing issues with legacy apps as i stated above?
3. Asus Vivo Tab - this is also another alternative for me. THe reason why I put thinkpad tablet 2 ahead of this one is simply because it's smaller. but i like the idea of having 2 batteries. Same question about this tablet. How about the performance?
*again, i dont need to run heavy legacy apps. i only need to run metatrader and cTrader which btw are light apps. how good atom tablets running light/medium legacy apps?
Thanks guys! Oh btw i dont list surface pro at all because it wont be released in my country. I have to go to neighbor country if i want to buy surface pro which i wont do because then it'll be hard to claim warranty

I forgot to add one more question. how responsive legacy apps (desktop mode) is to your finger? Do i really need a pen or it doesnt help either? Because acer w700 doesnt come with a pen so it's also a crucial question for me

On the Microsoft website they have a sales person you can text and they verified to me that the keyboard dock does come with the tablet for free. That's a great deal, separately it cost between $160 and $200, I placed my order today and it's supposed to ship on Friday Dec. 14th... Can't wait!

I wanted to give my impressions of the Lenovo TPT2. First off, the model I have is the 3679-27U, this means that it has the digitizer pen, windows 8 pro, no NFC, no 3G/4G antenna (though there is a slot for a SIM card). Let me also be frank about my biases concerning tablets. I am not a voracious media consumer. If Im going to watch a movie or TV program I prefer to do so with a large screen TV in the comfort of my living room. As far as checking email, messaging, twitter, and facebook that is why I have a smartphone. Why do I need another piece of electronic equipment that does the exact same thing as my smartphone? In my opinion iPADs and Android tablets are really only good for media consumption, they give you a slightly larger screen to run the same apps that your phone runs. If Im going to buy a tablet it has to provide some functionality that my phone or laptop cannot, otherwise it is a waste of money. Therefore, a tablet had to be able to run productivity programs: MS Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, GB-Stats, etc That meant a tablet using either the Atom processor or a Core processor (i3, i5). This left out not only Apple and Android but also any tablets running Windows 8 RT. Obviously one the major advantages of a tablet is its size and portability. My laptop is a comfortable size and fairly easy to carry around, so what advantage would a tablet give me. The answer is battery life. In order to be practical I would need a laptop with a significantly longer run time tha... Read more

Answer:The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2: Everything a tablet should be

Nice review. I have had my TPT2 for a little over a month now. I have used it extensively as my only device away from the office and have been able to do so without adjusting my computing needs too much. The only drawback that I have had is an under-powered USB port where i am unable to attach my external hard drive. Anything that I knew I was going to need for the day or trip I load onto a USB stick and problem averted.
Edit: I suppose I should mention that my usage is not too intense in terms of productivity. My programs of choice are typically the Microsoft Office package. I do a lot with excel, word, and power point and so far, I haven't run into any issues. I'm in the process of getting a new monitor for home and i'll have a better idea what it's like running a multiple monitor setup from the TPT2 and mini HDMI to HDMI connection. At this point I have a BT keyboard and Mouse which I have been using for the past few days with no issues (except when the battery is close to dying in the keyboard and it behaves as if it is possessed).
I might be one of the lucky ones but haven't had any issues with the wifi signal, sleep issues others have experienced, etc. Outside of the USB and mini HDMI to VGA issues, I'm still completely satisfied. If Wacom could update the drivers to enhance the accuracy of pen input, then I'd be completely satisfied given my particular usage patterns.

The first one is mapped to the primary screen while the second one appears to be mapped to both, so when I try to draw a point with the brush, the software draws a line from the first pointer to the second making a mess.

I probably need to buy a new tablet soon for use as my primary (and only) PC. I need some suggestions.
Some of the things that are most important to me: I'm kind of a borderline audiophile and videophile, so I want a device with a great screen and great sound. It would be awesome to have a tablet with:
- a 120 Hz screen (for 24p video content without 2:3 pulldown).
- a screen with HDR. IIRC, there is a certification called Mobile HDR Premium or something like that but I don't know if that includes 120 Hz (probably not).
- I don't plan on watching movies as often as I plan on watching TV shows. I've probably only watched one movie in the last several months, but I binge watch TV shows.
- A great internal audio chip, if it is possible to tell the difference between internal audio chips when decent headphones are connected. I've heard of audio bit depths of 24 and 32, and sample rates of 192 kHz and higher (I've not heard these higher bit depths and sample rates personally, but I've heard OF them). I don't have an audiophile-grade headset or speakers, nor do I have a golden ear, but I have good equipment, and I appreciate good sound. I love that Windows 10 includes virtual surround sound over headphones, though the HRTF needs improvement. I'll ask this question about internal audio chips on head-fi.org and possibly also avsforum.com and link to it here.
- I'm not expecting great internal speakers, and most of the time I'll either be using a headset or external speakers.

Hi All,
I own a Surface Pro and my wife has decided she wants a tablet too. We decided that the iPad has too many compromises to fit because she has a windows phone and I'm building an MS ecosystem in the house. Can you guys help me discuss options for Windows 8 or RT with a price range of around $700?
She is very keen on the build quality of Surface RT and is fond of the touch/type cover.
My main worry other than Tegra 3 performance with putting her into RT is the longevity of the OS. At CES we saw worrying signs of lack of interest in Windows RT and I have a nagging question: Are all windows store apps required to be compatible for RT and 8 or are there fewer RT apps?
If we go Windows 8 I'm liking the Thinkpad. I almost bought it myself over the Surface Pro but it doesn't have the elegant keyboard experience.
Can you guys give me some answers, advice, suggestions?

Answer:Help me choose a tablet for my wife

As you know, windows 8 RT can only runs Modern UI app only (all the apps in windows store) even though there are some ways to make it runs traditional windows apps (only apps that was built on .NET framework).
Basically, all of non-metro apps can not be run on windows 8 RT and the fact is window store hasn't had may apps. So, if you need your traditional windows apps (the old ones that run on other previous windows version like photoshop, lightroom, yahoo, skype (desktop version), ...) just pickup Windows 8. otherwise, Windows 8 RT with all metro apps only.

So limit is $800 +/- $100.
Which full windows tablet would you choose, the limit here (for me) is I dont really want some hybrid that ends up being quite big, I dont mind things like surface pro with the touch tablet as its quite small, but something like the Yoga would be too big, I really want the Tablet form factor.
Recently realised I do need full windows hence this new discussion as I still want a tablet over a hybrid :)

Answer:Which Full windows TABLET would you choose for around 800

I would go Surface Pro. If you are primarily using it as a tablet with only occasional keyboard use, nothing beats the type/touch cover for thinness and ease of use (folding it back).

Perhaps the cable got severed when you were turning it around? I've had a Wifi antenna cable break this way on an HP tablet... If it's still under warranty have them check it and replace it if necessary. It could also be a loose connector but there's no way to be sure without opening the screen assembly.

Hello
My Wacom tablet's pen has died and I hope to have a new one arriving in a few days but in the meantime I dug out an old Hanvon Rollick tablet which isn't supported under Windows 10 (which I use) but I nevertheless found some Windows 7 drivers for it which people reported working under Windows 10.

The problem is my PC is trying to behave like a tablet e.g. putting that blue teardrop thing on text boxes on Chrome (I'm not sure of its correct name) and when I try to ctrl-click a link, it shows a little "ctrl" label under the cursor and won't open the link in a new tab like it's supposed to and just does it in the same tab.

It takes multiple tries to right-click and open a link and when I hover over the link the cursor keeps rapidly flashing between the arrow and finger icons.

It is very difficult to click minimise, restore or close on Chrome because hovering over them doesn't make them go red and clicking on them doesn't tend to make them do anything unless you try many, many times.It's being profoundly irritating in programs other than Chrome too but those are some examples.

When I use the X220 as a laptop I can duplicate the display through my SmartBoard projector but when I use it as a tablet and it is docked I have to turn the tablet and dock 180 degrees so I am not writing upside down on the smartboard;  that means the dock has the cables coming out the front.  I can undock and plug everything into the X220 but the beauty of the dock is that I don't have to!

Only USD 77$
But i have some questions before i proceed to buy it for my child
1. As it is 16gb tablet but in actual we get only 4gb free space & i have read in reviews that once we update windows & other apps we are left with only 400mb space & we cant install other apps. So is it possible to install software's (.exe) on 64GB memory card which this tablet support ?
I am not talking about APPS, I am talking about .exe files like photoshop, ERP, educational softwares etc.
2. As it is having only 1 USB port so it is possible to attach a USB hub so that we can attach pen drives, KB, Mouse, HDD, 3g Dongel & power adapter at once ?
If anyone of you have used any windows 8/8.1 tablet then please reply.

I am currently on a Dell Venue 11 5130 with a Bay Trail Atom Z3770 and 2GB ram. While it serves the purpose of my usage of office suites and web browsing, I could use a little faster tablet. It would stutter if I have more than 5 tabs open on Edge. But there is nothing wrong with this tablet with a plenty of battery life and nothing broken after using if for close to 4 years now.
I am looking at a Dell Latitude 11 5175 tablet with a Core M3 and 4GB of ram. Is this upgrade worth it? Or should I save some more money to get the Core M5 version for around $150 more? My usage is office word, and youtube.

I have a Cherry Mobile Alpha Morph that works without problems aside from the fact that, when I undock it from the keyboard, it doesn't detect that it should now be in Tablet Mode. I have to manually go to the Action Center and toggle it there. Same with docking it back. I have already checked my settings and I didn't disable Tablet Mode either.

Anyone have an idea how I can resolve this? I just want to seamlessly dock and undock the tablet and it should switch to tablet or desktop mode respectively.

I don't know if it's relevant but the OS is Windows 10 Home Single Language.

Answer:Tablet mode doesn't get engaged when I undock my Windows tablet?

I would like to know how to enable this as well - In fact, I was hoping to be prompted to change modes when dock/undocking....instead of having to find the setting and toggle tablet mode on/off every time.

Hey all, I have a weird problem.  My tablet buttons have stopped working-- but only in tablet mode.  That is, I can't rotate, or bring up the tablet shortcuts, or move around the screen in tablet mode.  Also autorotate doesn't work.  But if I switch out of tablet mode, I can do all of these things just fine (except for autorotate). Also, when I switch into tablet mode the screen doesnt rotate or anything, but when I switch out of tablet mode the screen rotates to the direction I defined in the settings (sometimes.. to be honest it seems pretty random to me).  I am running 32 bit vista w/ 4 gb ram on an x61 tablet with the latest drivers.  I have uninstalled the tablet button drivers and the lenovo system interface and reinstalled them already.. I have the latest APS. Help me out here.. I have no idea why this isn't working!  Don't make me have to reinstall vista to get the buttons working.. Tha'ts ridiculous!!  Arrrgh.

sano88 wrote:Also autorotate doesn't work.  But if I switch out of tablet mode, I can do all of these things just fine (except for autorotate).You haven't calibrated it yet and enabled it yet. You have to get into Tablet shortcut menu setting and do it all first. For the rest, uninstalled all ThinkPad Tablet Button Driver, ThinkPad Tablet shortcut menu then restar and reinstall vis System Update. Just let it find for you; that's the only thing I could recommend for this case.

I have a wierd problem - I have six X61 Tablets, all with XP SP3.  One of them gets the BSOD on every boot during the XP Logo scroll.  This occurs on both its original drive and if I put in an HDD which works fine in another chassis.  Note that it will copy (clone) that disk fine if I follow normal protocol using Acronis True Image Home 2010 CD (on the ultrabase with either CD or DVD) - it clones USB drive to HDD fine, then that HDD works fine in another chassis, but gives the same BSOD when I try to run it in this chassis.  I am pulling my hair out trying to figure what is different, as I am unaware of any setup or BIOS changes.  Any ideas?  Could a bad CMOS battery cause this?  I have yet to try a new HDD setup from Lenovo disk set, but that is my next try.  I hoped to get insight here first, though.  Thanks in advance. Joe Holzer

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

Well, I've finally had it. I've had my 6365 CTO X60 tablet pc for over a year now and last Monday I lost pen functionality in tablet pc mode in the afternoon after working fine in the morning. It works fine, even now after rotating the screen back to laptop mode. As soon as the screen is rotated back to tablet pc mode, no pen functionality but the mouse still works fine so I know it's functional in laptop mode but rotate back, all ok!  I did uninstall the Wacom drivers, restart, and then downloaded the tablet pc, windows xp version drivers from the wacom.com site as instructed in a previous post. Unfortunately, the digitizer pen is still disabled in tablet pc mode and works fine when rotated back to laptop mode. I've called Lenovo tech support in Atlanta four times now and they've been totally useless. I wiped out my X60 tablet last Friday and used Rescue and Recovery to reinstall the operating system back to it's factory settings. I went back and unistalled and reinstalled the Wacom driver. Nothing. Since that didn't work either I've requested the box to ship this back to the Memphis Depot. Hopefully, I'll just get a new replacement machine that works but I'm so angry and frustrated w/ Lenovo's support because it's obvious that the people on the phone are not tech specialists and they couldn't even point me in a direction to get this fixed. It's cost me over a week now wo...

Answer:X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Problem solved! While the support folks weren't able to fix the problem over the phone, they did overnite me a prepaid return box which I sent back that day. Two days later they overnited my X60 tablet back fixed with a note saying 'LCD enabled'. I'm impressed how quickly they got my tablet pc back up and running. I'm glad I got that 3-yr. support warranty because I usually opt out of those things. This totally paid for itself. I just wish I hadn't been so reluctant to send back my laptop because I do need it for work and I figured I wouldn't get it back for at least a week or longer. I was so frustrated and pessimistic that I forgot sometimes these problems do get fixed in a very satisfactory manner. It's too bad the initial steps that led to sending it back were so painful. Bottom line: Lenovo fixed my pc quickly, no questions asked. Thanks!

Hi all,    I have a really annoying problem...my x220 tablet disconnects from the internet whenever I enter tablet mode. The internet can be working perfectly fine while in non tablet mode but as soon as I switch to tablet mode, my internet disconnects. And if I switch back to non tablet mode from tablet mode, my internet returns almost instantaneously. I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading. If I return back to non tablet mode the page resumes loading without so much as a pause or a hiccup. Also, when I switch the computer to tablet mode, wifi networks disappear off of the "available networks" list that were there before the switch.     I've tried everything, from updating network device drivers, reinstalling network device drivers, running diagnostics, reformatting my computer, uninstalling Norton Antivirus, system restoring to days before the last known working date in normal mode and safe mode, and contacting customer support (chat and call, managed to get a hold of a rep) but none of them have worked.    I also used to have a networking log before I reformatted/system reset to factory settings and there were a ton of errors with words like avsc manager failed to "something" ...

The fan speed is 3500-3800 RPMs. Can someone helps me with this issue?  

Answer:X220 Tablet FAN Problem - temperature over 90 °C - tablet switch off :(

Hi giciorek,
 
I understand that your fan/temperature problems can be frustrating.  I would try updating your BIOS and also updating Power Manager.  (Some on the forum have tried downloading ThinkPad Fan Control, but that is not an official Lenovo solution.)
 
Download Power Manager here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS014924
 
Download BIOS Update here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS018805
 
In Power Manager, click Advanced at top right, you can Set Optimize Fan Control to Balance All Parameters under Battery Settings.  Set it to Reduce Noise Dynamically under AC.
 
Let me know if this helps.

Hi,
I'm going to be doing some presentations and teaching online. I'm using Team Viewer 9 running on Windows 7 as my software. I would like to be able to have the equivalent to a whiteboard visible to the participants.
For a demonstration of the sort of thing I want to do see
click here
where the presenter draws circles etc. He doesn't do any handwriting in the YouTube video (but he does in the actual presentation at CBT nuggets)
I'm total newbie when it comes to tablets, but a tablet that allows drawing direct on the tablet and simultaneous display on a Windows monitor. I know that the presentation on You Tube was done with various Wacom devices. Intuos4, Cintiq monitor, or more recently, Cintiq Companion tablet. (I tweeted the presenter Shawn Powers). These devices are a bit beyond my budget. Is there a cheaper alternative? Sadly the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is not yest available in Australia (where I am) - I'm not sure if it's a possible answer, but I'm assuming it would be. Is there anything else that's not going to mean I have to take out a mortgage on my house?
Thanks in advance for your help.
cheers,
Bernard

So the DV port on my asus eee pc 1005peb is failing, and got the idea from android central to look into tablet and tablet hybrids. I kind of like the idea of having a hybrid for both the netbook kind of experience combined with a tablet experience. I'm having trouble discovering what my brands and model options are for that type of device. I'm concerned from what little I have seen so far I'm going to be against a cost prohibitive wall compared to spending $100 to have the port replaced. I'm one to figure if I'm going to toss that kind of cash into a repair I might as well consider replacing it with something else instead of doing the repair.

Answer:X61 Tablet Windows 8 - Tablet Button and Features Request

Hi koray,
 
I've been playing around with Windows 8 since the developers preview.  I've ran it on a lot of older systems.  Getting things to work will require some experimentation on your part.  
 
You can start with your Driver Matrix.  There you can find the Hotkeys Utility for Windows 8.  You will also need the Power Manager Driver for Windows 8.  Not Power Manager,  just the Power Manager Driver.  
 
Run Windows Update, it will probably find some stuff.  Some Windows 7 drivers will work, others won't.  
 
I'm running Windows 8 Pro on an x60 tablet and everything works fine.  I also have it on an x61 non-tablet and it runs fine. I had to do a lot of messing around with stuff to get them to work right though. 
 
Just make sure that you set system restore points before changing anything so you can get back what you had before, just in case something doesn't work right.  And, only install one thing at a time and reboot and test it out thoroughly before you install something else.  
 
Good luck with this,
 
Dave

Thanks :) Beck... Im looking at this Tablet specifically too for all the same reasons. I'm also comparing vs the Surface Pro. The main things I like about SUrface Pro are Kickstand, touch cover/keyboard and the 1080p display.
But... it weighs 2 pounds vs the Thinkpad at 1.3 lbs. While I wan to e able to run Pro I also want to use this to read, watch videos, etc... so I dont want anything that is too uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time.
I think I read it will be released at launch, so hopefully this Friday. Im hoping its carried in stores so I can at least see it before buying.

The learning curve on this machine is steep if you want to take advantage of all the input options but I've put the time in and I'm starting to love it. There is one thing I wish Lenovo would address though. I see plenty of ThinkPad users with this problem going back to at least 2008, and no solutions forthcoming. The manual states: "On the display bezel near the screen is a row of buttons with which you can control your computer in the tablet mode, without the use of the keyboard."By default the buttons are set to turn your computer off, press CTRL+ALT+DEL, or rotate the screen 90 degrees. The manual goes on to describe how you can customize these buttons via the Tablet Shorcut Menu, which is accessed via Start > Programs > Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools > Tablet Utility.If you open this program you get a dialog box titled "Auto Screen Rotation Settings." This dialog controls what orientation the screen should switch to when you convert into tablet. So it really doesn't have anything to do with the buttons.The only dialog that allows any assignment of the tablet buttons is Windows Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings. Here the Buttons tab is supposed to list the actual buttons on the front panel and let you assign them, but the only one shown is the Screen Rotation button. This works fine, you can set the button's function for a single press and a long press. (Too bad it's not possible to use Shift by itself, but that is as-designed by MS.)It should go without sayi...

I just went about searching the web to find out if an X60/X61 Tablet pen fits in an X41 Tablet (as in, stores properly in the pen slot - it will definitely work on the X41 Tablet screen) and couldn't find the answer on any of the popular forums. So, I pinged some Lenovians to find the answer.

Answer:Does X60/X61 Tablet pen fit in X41 Tablet and vice versa? *SOLVED*

The answer is that the X41 Tablet pen fits in the X60/X61 Tablet slot, but the X60/X61 Tablet pen does not fit in the X41 Tablet slot. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Hi, Happy New Year. I replaced my old harddrive with a new one and I just installed windows xp tablet 2005 (not supplied from lenovo or ibm) on the new HD. Now it seems that a lot of drivers are missing. Like bluetooth, keyboard, wireless... The drivers are available to download from ibm's website, But I have to install 20+ drivers one by one. That is too much. After installing xp, my windows desktop showed no icons except for recycle bin (I believe this is due to drivers missing also). Anybody know is there a x60 tablet driver bundle/package cd image somewhere? How did you guys change your os to xp on a new HD? Thanks!

Answer:Installing XP tablet 2005 to X60 Tablet new harddrive

Why not let System Update do the work for you? You will need to have installed the MS .NET Framework 2.0 beforehand, instructions can be found on the site, and then let it loose.

So I purchased my Tablet with XP Tablet OS downgrade (it was suppose to come with Vista, but I choose to have XP tablet instead). So my Laptop gets shipped in a speedy manner, I open the laptop up and there is a Vista sticker on it.  Luckily XP tablet  was installed on the laptop. However, on the bottom of my laptop is a Vista Business Product Key  . . .  Where is my XP Tablet 2003 product key? What if I wanted to do an OS refresh of XP Tablet without using the ThinkVantage software/bootup? What if my HD fails and I need to replace it? Does ThinkVantage offer to burn a cd/create an image or install of the Fresh XP OS install like Dell does? I know it offers to burn a recovery disk, but is that recovery disk just a restore point of the PC, or an actual OS installation. I really would like to be able to avoid the dependancy of ThinkVantage software on the hidden partition for restore and recovery. Also I guess whenever I'm ready to use Vista, how would I go about installing Vista? Is there another selection for creating a "Vista recovery disc"?Message Edited by tonefour on 08-26-2008 09:55 AM

Answer:X61 Tablet XP Tablet OS Product Key? OS refresh concerns!

I feel the same way as you. Last laptop crashed, and the recovery partition/MBR went too. The company wanted me to pay for recovery discs. I couldn't believe it. Anyway, I only have a partial answer for you unfortunately. I have Vista Business installed so you'll have to ask Lenovo about the XP part. I just spoke with Tech Support for though and they showed me where the option to Create Recovery Media was:Start-->All Programs-->ThinkVantage-->Create Recovery Media Follow the wizard and good luck, it worked for me.  We shall see if it actually works when the moment of truth comes. Best

Hi, I hope someone can give me an insight into this issue. I received my new ThinkPad X61 Tablet a couple weeks ago (I have to say, it's been great so far!). However, I've got an issue with the fan assembly in my unit. Not a major issue, but an annoyance nonetheless. Model number/type is 7764 CTO L3-xxxxx The fan underneath the left palmrest seems to be generating excessive noise and vibration. It's not huge, but enough to hear it, noticably, over the notebook playing music. I can feel the vibration when I rest my hand on the palmrest, and the problem is excarbated when the notebook is on a hard surface -- i.e., a desk. This has been an issue since I received the laptop, and is definitely the fan. I suspect the rotor is slightly unbalanced. Now, will Lenovo's EasyServ warranty cover this issue? I realize that it doesn't affect the functionality of the computer, but it is annoying (particularly in my place-of-work). Secondly, if Lenovo will repair it, how long will this take? I have classes starting in three weeks and while I can use a work computer at work, I don't have another computer to use for school. I have a 2-year EasyServ warranty -- if I wait until next summer to get it serviced, (assuming they will service this issue under warranty), will they still do it, considering I knew about the issue but opted to wait to get it fixed? And where would I request this warranty service? I suppose I could live with the problem, but if at all possible, I'd reall... Read more

I downgraded to XP on my brand-new X61 Tablet and when I undock the unit I get the error message "System has recovered from a serious error" at which point a BSOD appears and then it reboots itself.  All the requisite "ready to undoc" lights and messages appear before I take the unit out of the base. Anybody else using XP?  Anyone seeing this problem?  Based on the number of posts, it doesn't appear to be any better in Vista. BTW I have updated all the drivers, etc. etc.  Thanks. 

Answer:Undocking Thinkpad X61 Tablet with XP

I have the X61 XP with the docking station, however do not see your errors. I presume you select "Undock" from Start and allow the screen to blick a couple of times.  Also, later on I changed the Power Manager setting to force the tablet to go into Stand-by mode when I undock.   As soon as you open the laptop it will leave the stand-by mode.   The setting is off the Advanced button on Global Power Settings tab in Power Manager.    (Start > ThinkAdvantage > Power Manager > Global Power Settings > Advanced)    See if you still have the same issue in stand-by mode. As a side note, many of the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) events in Vista are probably related to the Turbo Memory, which does not apply to Windows XP systems which can not use Turbo Memory.     The only BSOD event I've had was when I was attempting to print an unusual PDF document, for which I never determined a cause.    Message Edited by ctoys on 07-01-2008 12:45 PM

I see a subject line which already asks this question in the knowledgebase, however I can't open the link so I'm asking this question as a duplicate, my apologies in advance..So, basically, is this possible?  I don't see any Win-7 drivers available for the TP Tablet 2.  I'm assuming that Windows 7 isn't supported then, unless I attempt to load the Win-8 drivers on a Win-7 install.I'm quite disappointed with the TP Tablet 2 running Windows 8.  The response times on anything from opening a webpage, changing to another webpage, opening apps, etc is very slow.  I was hoping that if Windows 7 was supported, then I might just get better performance with this tablet however it could just end up with the same performance for all I know.  I won't know until I try but I don't want to go through the install process just to find out that I don't have any driver support for Win-7. I'm thinking that I should have purchased a Helix...

I have a X220T. And I am thinking to buy a ThinkPad Tablet android too. But I am not sure if it will add anything in my life. I have a lot of windows application in my computer, I am a programmer. And read and write a PDF a lot. And I don't like the idea to carry two hardware with me (X220T and ThinkPad Tablet). The ThinkPad Tablet is good, light, camera, battery life. But I am not sure if it worth buying one, since I have the X220T. I am not sure if it is really necessary. 

Answer:X220T vs. ThinkPad Tablet.

This is largely a question of preference.  If you value weight and battery life over functionality then the thinkpad tablet is a good investment.  If you however, value performance, ability, and sheer functionality above weight and size, then the thinkpad tablet is a waste of money.  The x220t can be made to last battery wise just as long (and longer) than the thinkpad tablet. It is a beast in comparison spec wise to the tablet. It's keyboard is a dream, and the wacom implementation is superior in most aspects to the n-trig used on the thinkpad tablet.  If it was up to me, I wouldn't even look at the thinkpad tablet.  That said I love the way the thinkpad tablet looks. If they stuff x86/x64 guts in there, I would be the first in line to buy it.

Not all of us are interested in wasting our time on watching videos on wide screen computers -- I can't be the only one.

If I were to pull the trigger on a Windows tablet, I think that would be it. Seems like a great compromise of price, performance and features.
I'm keen on Windows RT, but Win 8 would be even better if they can keep the price down and get the battery life up, which it looks like the did with the TPT 2 pretty well with the Atom processor.
Atom seems like a perfect solution because it's able to run Win 8 and it will outperform any ARM SoC and at the same time the newest Atom can just about match the ARM for battery life.
I think the perfect storm will be when the "Bay Trail" Atom's come out later this year. It should mark the first really major upgrade for the Atom architecture. They will have quad core versions, much better onboard graphics and out-of-order execution (the lack of this is probably the biggest reason Atom's real-world performance falls so far short of better processors)
So... NOKIA.. give me a Win 8 tabelt with that Bay Trail Atom in it for under $700 and I will run to the store with a wad of sweaty $100's in my hand the day it goes on sale.
Questions? Comments?

Answer:Thinkpad Tablet 2 looks good

The only potential gotcha is if you ever need to use Hyper-V, say for playing with the Windows Phone 8 emulator, you will be out of luck on an Atom. Curious, since the AMD equivalent runs Hyper-V just fine.
Otherwise, other than a little bit of lag when starting up applications and during web browsing, Windows 8 runs just fine on an Atom, even on the current models. (I expect some of the lag I experence on my netbook isdue to using a standard HDD instead of SDD.)
I think you'll be quite happy trading a little speed for more battery life between charges.

 The main reason why I chose the x220 tablet was for school purpose. Most of my classes are notes you buy from the teacher (40-50$ a booknote) or powerpoints which I have to print out (Around 800 powerpoint pages, 400 papers per class). So thread is a good thread for all the students out there.  I was a big fan of Asus for their good quality hardware and for their EEE pc brand. I had a netbook, with a 10 hours battery life. So battery was my main concern at that time. I was bringing it in the lab and loved it for its small size and long life battery. Then one day, I saw a new product from Asus at CES 2010, the ep121. I was like ?wow, that tablet would be great for school!? I then did some research to find out more about it. That?s where I found the poor 3 hours battery. So I continued my research to find a tablet that would fill in this job. That?s when I found out about lenovos thinkpad tablet. I was impressed about the overall laptops but the x220 tablet stood out? 19 hours battery? I couldn?t find anything better. So I ordered it. For all the students who think 1300$ is expensive, let me tell you this. How much do your texts books cost?
