shopping for netbook replacement with tablet or tablet hybrid

Question: shopping for netbook replacement with tablet or tablet hybrid

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.
For my desktop PC I hesitant on going to windows 8 because of a lot of negative stuff I've heard but at the same time I hear good stuff about it too. But when it comes to a portable device like my netbook and a tablet. I think hm windows 8 (not RT) sounds like it would be a good fit since it is designed for both traditional mouse and keyboard input and touchscreen input. Plus I would like to retain the software I use on my netbook to use on whatever replaces it. Something I can't do with my current HP touchpad with webOS and android (CM9) on it. I tried using both as a replacement for my netbook but in the end there were just too many things I didn't like about that. I let my dad take my netbook out of town with him for about 2 month and was trying to use the touchpad as a replacement. I was glad to have my netbook back to use it again.
Help me discover devices that may be best for me. Thanks

In three years I've had two netbooks (eeePCs) both the DC jacks failed. This time around outside of the warranty. Best price I've gotten for the repair is about $100. I'm just not sure I can justify spending that much on a repair when the part can be bought from like 100 different places online for about $5 and the repair will take about an hour to do. Of course I don't have a solder gun to do the repair or the training to solder the new one on otherwise I'd do the repair if I had either one or both of those. I've been researching what my options are for replacing it with a tablet hybrid type device with windows 8 on it.
My main disappointments after 3 years of using the eeePC is the fragile DC jack and the rather sluggish and underpowered performance of general application use from video watching (streaming) to web browsing. So these are my main concerns for what device would be best to replace it. In addition I think I'd be happier with a higher resolution since on occasion I wish I could see a little more on the screen with the 1024x768 of my eeePC. Which has me thinking I'd be happier with 1080. Even not limiting by that it doesn't look like there are many options.
Acer Iconia Tab w510 or w700
Samsung ATIV XE700
Asus VivoTab
The w700 and XE700 both appear to have 1080 variations but are kind of pricy. Nothing time probably won't solve. My main concern with the w700 is on lap use. Since the tab and KB parts can't physically connect. My main concern with the XE700 is it app... Read more

Answer:I'm still shopping for my netbook replacement and looking for others thoughts

I would say go with the iconia w510. I love my hp envy x2 and I can promise you that not only are the new atoms much faster, but with windows 8 being leaner than 7, atom +win8 runs great. Leaps and bounds better than past netbooks, the operation of the OS is fluid and very smooth, also snappy. I would wholeheartedly recommend the w510, just pay the extra for the 64gb if you can cause windows 8 uses about 14 gb of memory. Also since classic windows applications take more room than metro apps, get the 64 gb model and you'll be fine. Also you can buy the keyboard dock for the w510 and it doubles your battery life, so you will get about hers w/ tablet and about 16 with the dock + tablet. Really great product.
the w700 is also a great product but its noticeably heavier and gets less battery than the w510so I would recommend the w510 instead if you really want something more akin to a netbook.

So first, I don't know if this is the correct board for posting this. If its not, then forgive me and please move this topic where it should be.

Now, as a student, I bought 2-3 months ago a quite nice computer for its price - and good enough for my daily requirements. However, since its a 15 inch one - it proved quite difficult to move around with it. And one of the downsides was also the battery life, which is quite poor actually. The batter issue is not a problem at home, since I can keep it plugged in. Its much more difficult when you are outside however.

Now I've been seeking for a new, smaller and lighter laptop/ hybrid tablet. And I did find one, for 150$, a promotional offer till the 1st of January. Its a hybird tablet, with an attachable keyboard (via magnets), a nice metallic build, promised 7-8 hours of battery. The full specs are here:

Screen [in] ? 10,1
Screen type ? IPS/PLS
Resolution ? 1280?800
Processor ? Intel Atom Z3735F
RAM memory [MB] ? 2048
Capacity [GB] ? 32
Additional storage capacity ? SD card [GB] ? 64
Connection ? 3G/ Bluetooth 4.0802.11 b/g/n
Batery [mAh] ? 8000
1 year of Office 365 included.


Now it looks like a nice deal for 150$. However specification wise, I don't know what to expect. I don't mined the screen resolution, nor the small capacity since I mainly use OneDrive but.. will the RAM and processor cope with my day to day student life? It would run fairly simple programs like LibreOffice/Microsoft Office, taking notes... Read more

I've been thinking of getting a tablet for photo retouching and other graphic manipulations. Now this is strictly a 'toy' at this time and I'm trying to save for a better camera, so I can't justify a huge expense. It would probably have to be a used unit or one of the lower end ones. The other problem is that I'm not really familiar enough with the features of tablets to be able to differentiate between them.

I did have the opportunity recently to play a bit with an older Acecat serial tablet. It had some problems - cursor jumping around unexpectedly - so I couldn't really give it a workout. One impression I had, though, was that although the working surface was fairly small - 5x5 - I didn't feel particularly restricted. In fact, after the relatively limited movement required with a mouse, I had difficulty using the full working area of the tablet. With that in mind, would I be all right with one of the smaller Wacom Graphire tablets or are there other advantages to the larger ones that would reveal themselves with use?

Can anyone suggest what features I should be looking for or recommend specific makes/models to consider. Links to reviews or articles on tablet selection would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Answer:I need help finding a new laptop/tablet/hybrid, please.

Following the rabbit hole deeper, I've sat and thought about what is essential to my needs from a new Win8 device purchase:
- x86 compatibility is needed, along with a USB Port and HDMI/Mini Display Port for showing the tablet on a HDTV.

- touchscreen is needed, but pen support isn't necessarily needed.

- includes a keyboard which separates from tablet for when I need that, but which isn't completely separate all the time so that it's one more thing to have to carry in your bag, or in my case I would likely misplace it a lot and not have it to hand when I do need it.

- something respectable in processor/graphics/memory so that it can play at least some games on low/normal settings, and to watch YT/stream Netflix & Twitch without buffering and stuttering. Don't see a point in getting a new device just to have to get a more powerful one later on, thus making the first purchase obsolete and a waste of money when the replacement becomes my new 'main'.

- Be priced somewhere around, but preferably below ?400-?500

can anyone help?

I have read the article on connecting an external HDD to a PC. I used to have an external USB DVD drive for my W10 tablet PC but it broke down and is no longer available. I have had to return three drives as they would not work at all, probably because there is not enough power for a mechanical drive? To overcome this some drives have two sockets, both USB. I have not yet found a DVD drive in which one socket is for AC, as is quite common with USB hubs. So I am intending to try using my one USB 3 socket which gives greater power than USB 2 I believe. But I have not found a suitable cable, such as a USB 3 Y cable with the correct connectors, although I guess an AC power supply might be better?Any comments / advice would be very welcome.

Hi all,
My daughter is currently studying GCSE art and is going to college to continue with art and design next year. Her current netbook just 'died' and she'd like to replace it but would like something suitable for her course too.
Her friends have mentioned a 'graphics tablet' (not my area!), her tutor says to opt for a laptop with a decent-sized processor, and she still hankers after a netbook but has seen one with a screen which turns around into a tablet which she likes the look of! The key factor I guess will be her (own) budget though which is 200 to 250.
All advice most gratefully accepted!! Ellen :O)

Answer:Advice on which laptop/netbook/tablet for an art student

Forget the Netbook, it will be totally incapable of doing what the College will be expecting of her.
Here Tutor is correct.
A Graphics Tablet is not a Computer, it is a way of communicateing with a Computer. It will allow her to Draw, or paint, on the Computer Screen, much in the same way that a Keyboard allows you to Write.

I need a new key for my X41 Tablet - laptopkeys.co.uk has spare keys for ThinkPad T20/21/23, will these fit the X41?

Answer:X41 Tablet Replacement key

Welcome to the Lenovo Community!The T2x systems use at least two different types of keyboards. The mounting systems between them are quite different as seen in these pictures:http://www.kawakami-ca.com/ibm_t2x/keys/fru_02k4970.jpghttp://www.kawakami-ca.com/ibm_t2x/keys/fru_02k5729.jpgThe X41t keyboard pitch is different from the T2x, which means that the keycaps are slightly narrower on the X4. So even if one of these mounting systems are the same as what's on your X41t, the keycaps from a T2 will be a little wider. That might work for a single key but if any adjacent key is also replaced with one from the T2, then it probably won't work.

Could someone recommend a tablet as a replacement for a laptop. I have always had a laptop as I used to burn a lot of discs but now I don't so often. I would like maybe a tablet now so I can browse etc and do basically everything I could with a laptop (I could always plug in an external burner). I don't particularly want an iPad or anything to do with Apple!
I would like it to be as powerful as possible and quite a big screen. Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer:Tablet Replacement For A Laptop

A tablet doesn't really replace a laptop - tablets are great for social media, browsing e mail, films games etc. not really good for office work, photo / movie editing etc.
I could always plug in an external burner not really relevant with most tablets

My desktop is for homework, laptop for work, tablet for entertainment while away from home.

Answer:X41 Tablet - Vista (&HDD replacement)?

Hi, I'm not sure if you've already found a replacement hard drive for your X41 tablet, but I thought I'd share my experience.  I searched and searched for a SSD replacement for my X41T and really couldn't find one.  After reading various blogs and such, I finally decided to go the CF card approach using an adapter from Adonics.  The day the adapter came in the mail, I decided that CF cards just aren't made to run operating systems and that I was better off looking again.  I'm really glad I decided not to go the CF route because I found a compatible SSD made in China by KingSpec.  I was skeptical, but YouTube videos showed the drive actually working in an X41, so I was hopeful.  There is a boot error (2010) that says the drive isn't compatible, but I did some research on this and basically I think the only problem that may arise is if you copy files in DOS or using a windows programs that copies files in DOS.  Since I don't do either of these, I've had no problems. You can also adjust the BIOS so that the boot process can bypass after about 5 seconds notification.  I ordered a 64GB KingSpec drive from the one person on Ebay that wasn't from China.  Not that I have a problem with international sellers, it's just that I wanted the drive really quick.  Upon receipt, I used the IBM recovery CD and restored my system to factory settings.   Installing this SSD into my X41T has been the most awesome upgra...

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.

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.

I have a desktop that runs Windows 8.1. My x220 tablet runs Windows 7. I was thinking about getting a wacom bamboo tablet for my art in photoshop (which I make on my desktop... x220 isn't powerful enough for what I do in photoshop). Then I realized that my x220 tablet is kind of the same thing. Is there anyway I can connect my tablet to my desktop so that when I'm using photoshop, I can use the stylus on the tablet to control what I do? Many thanks in advance.

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 have an x61 tablet. It is a few years old, no warranty. It is a 7767 59U model. Last week I opened the case, it woke up from sleep for about two seconds, then the blue screen of death appeared. Now when I try to start it, I get four series of four beeps. This code equates to "System Board (Security Chip)". The computer stays powered on and the fan runs until I unplug it and take out the battery. I really like the x61, and do not want to spend the money for a new one. I'm looking for an 'economy' fix. I understand that the security chip is on the mother board, and that the error code can be somewhat ambiguous. I did strip down the computer and look for loose components, but found none. It seems that the best solution for me would be to get a used motherboard and install it. Does anybody know of a better solution, or additional diagnosis I could do? The system won't start up at all so the software diagnostics are not an option. What are the odds that another system board would fix it? Then, my next question would be what options do I have in replacing the mother board. There are many available on ebay, but not a 7767 59U. How far from the original can I stray. I'd love to upgrade it to a faster model. Are all the 7500 series boards interchangeable?

After just making it through the end of my warranty, my X41 Tablet Hitachi Hard Drive died. IBM tells me that replacement would be $500+ if they had them in stock ! I would also pay $50 for a Recovery CD for new installation. IBM said that it will be at least 6 months before the repalcement HD is available ! So, I'm asking for help in obtaining a new affordable hard drive within a week or so time frame. One tech told me that replacement for this hard drive is very unlikely. Other tthan trying a flash drive, what is the best solution. I wouldn't mind going from a 60 GB HDD to a larger if one is made by anyone. With this situation, I'm much less endeared to IBM Lenovo.

Answer:Tablet X41 Hrad Drive Replacement

The X41t use 1.8 inch PATA which is extremely rare, and they are not as reliable as the 2.5 inch version, i think hitachi and toshiba has stop manufacturing them, and most of the left over stock is going into the Ipod classic. The largest one i have heard is 250 gig, but there is not many of these out there. Most of these drives are used by Apple in the Ipod video and classic... my friend pulled apart a Ipod classic 80 gig (screen was broken) to use in his X41 laptop. OS you can use the normal XP installation discs and use the serial key underneath, you can download most of the drivers from here, the only thing you would be missing is the full factory recovery partition.

I just received back my warranty repaired x61 tablet and I am quite certain that the lid has been replaced with plastic? I know the lid used to be mag. alloy because the coating on the corners was a bit worn away and they were shiny. it was not plastic. The new lid has a whole different feel to it. After more than 2 years the hinge went bad and that was part of the repair. And this new hinge is better than when I sent it in, but not as good as what I had up until about 6 weeks ago.(not to mention Lenovo returned it to a non-existant address and I had to work with UPS to locate the computer.) So this "repair" is "ok," but it is a lesser computer than what I had up to just a few weeks ago. Checking on the web I found this post which a number of blogs refer to, that the T60 to T61 changed from mag. lid to plastic to improve wireless reception. Is this true and did this happen to my repaired lid?  http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=3708&review=ThinkPad+T61 Thanks for any help in trying to find out what happened in this repair.

I bought my x 61 some time ago. The Model number is 7764-CTO. This is one of the best Laptops I have ever owned! Unfortunately, my abusive nature has taken its toll on it - My Bezel cracked  I am uncertain how to identify the correct replacement bezel. Could the forum advise? According to support, the part depends upon the screen type... Screen Type: 12.1-in. XGA TFT with digitizer or 12.1-in. SXGA+ TFT with digitizer the part numbers are 42X4396, 42W2537 Screen Type 12.1-in. XGA+ TFT, touch panel with digitizer there is only one part number avail; 42W2656. There are a few posts on the forum about bezel replacement - but none of them clear up my question. Which part number do I need? When I ordered the x61 - I chose the "Multi-touch" option, which meant I could use my finger to select items on the screen. I assume that means I need part number 42W2656. Please validate. Can I use any one of these parts or do I need the one specifically for the touch panel?

My Lenovo X200 has been making some unusual noises and is slower than a snail, and I am worried that the drive is going to start crashing. The OS is Vista Business 32 Bit. Based on what I found online, the procedure goes something like this...

Remove screw on side
Use pull tab to remove disk
and to put it back-

Slide back in
Replace screw

This is suspiciously easy - wouldn't there be a cable involved somewhere? The hard drive in the videos appeared to have dots on it, so I think it is a metal bracket with circular dots - is it? I read that the maximum is 500GB because any higher than that is thicker - is that right? Finally, could an SSD be used without having to load any drivers to install vista from the set of 3 OEM discs? Even with a normal HDD, would I need drivers?

Can anyone recommend the best option to include ideally Microsoft sheet, word and Outlook (reluctantly I may have to loose the Data facility which is so good in Psion).

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 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.

I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading.

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?

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.

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!

For a demonstration of the sort of thing I want to do see

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.

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.

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 new X220 Tablet, and the Pen and Tablet functions work perfectly out of the box as long as the unit is on the Ultrabase. As soon as I remove from the Ultrabase (or boot while not connected), the Pen & Tablet functions stop working. Conversely, if I dock the X220, the Pen & Tablet functions begin working again. The behavior is the same regardless of whether I have an external monitor attached or not. Any thoughts?

Hi I have installed 64bit windows 7 on my machine quite recently in order to utilise the extra ram. When i rotate the screen clockwise to tablet mode, the screen will auto rotate to primary potrait by default and the buttons will work as usual.

Answer:PERFORMED TABLET RESET now UNABLE to START TABLET

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

I have upgraded to Windows 8 64 bit on my X61 Tablet, however I cannot get the tablet buttons, hotkeys, or auto-rotation to work. My understanding is that Lenovo has stopped supporting these products. I think it is a shame to stop using a perfectly working tablet PC with a superior LCD. I don't want to go back to Win 7 leaving all kinds of nice features on Windows 8. Any suggestions? Is there a hope? Koray

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

The bay trail tablets come with office 2013 preinstalled, I cracked my asus t100 and wanted to move office to my new dell venue 11 pro core i3 version. I downloaded office and it got to the point where it needed to check if any other computers are using the license. So of course with it being activated on the asus it didn't let me. So is there anyway of deactivating it from the asus and transferring it to the dell or is the office version "special" that came with the bay trail tablets?

Ok, I just got my screen in x220 tablet replaced. When I first usued it, I noticed that the new screen is now "rubbery" - there is no protective foil, but it just feels like there is some plastic cover over the screen, not the actual glass. Previously, the pen used to run smoothly over the screen - just like it does over glass. Now I can tell that the screen is covered in a platci/ rubber transparent layer - invisible but one you can feel by your hand or especially by the stylus. Now I want to ask you for something really silly - can you touch yours x220 tablet screen and tell me whether you feel the rubber coating or a glass? :-) I might be out of my mind, but I swear the feeling was different before. The screen that was replaced comes from the Lenovo service (repair was done under warranty) - maybe I got a screen from a different model (eg. x230?).

Since the Surface Pro line is a two in one, and because my MacBook Pro died three months ago, I am really considering selling my iPad Air and switching to the Surface Pro line (4, or whatever comes next) to use it as a tablet for simple streaming, and media and also as a full PC for editing documents, presentations and taking notes + playing Xbox One on its screen when I am in a place with no TV (or TV being used by others).
I would like to know how the Surface Pro functions as a tablet so I really wish if you guys tell me your main opinion about it, and if possible also answer the following questions:
1. Can the tablet be kept on 24/7 for like a year (as in locked screen / standby mode). Like a typical tablet? How is the battery in such case?
2. While in standby / screen locked mode. Does it have support for Push notifications and will I actually hear a notification sound? Like a notification for email, Facebook. Also most importantly calls from Skype / Viber contacts?
3. Is an antivirus required or should I just depend on Windows Defender + Malwarebytes? I already have a Norton Security for 5 devices license but I am worried this might slow it down (I am targeting the i7, 16 GB RAM model because I won't be upgrading before it literally dies, just like my 2012 Mac)
4. How does it feel streaming YouTube videos or Netflix on it. Do videos fit the screen like a TV, or it looks like playing a movie on iPad due to different aspect ratio?

 I have a X201 Tablet (Pen only)  Model 3093-A15 serial number starting 4Pxx Recently I noticed that the glass covering the screen had cracked, exposing some sharp edges, so I removed the whole glass (including the sticky plastic covering layer) from the LCD bezel. I'm assuming this is called the "Protection plate" by Lenovo? The screen and pen still work, but it's not really practical to use, so I'd like to get a new piece of glass to stick to the lcd bezel (or failing that just the new bezel with glass). However, I can't seem to find the part I need. From printed page 157 of the x201 tablet user guide at  http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/45n3683_04.pdf it seems to suggest I need one of these 3: 75Y443675Y477475Y4775 I checked images of the first 2 on google, but these don't have the right shaped bezel to take the protective glass. I can't find any picture of the third version, but it is listed as part "BEZEL, LCD PROTECT PLATE" in a few places, which makes me hopeful. Can anyone confirm that part 75Y4775 is a bezel WITH glass? Or provide an alternate part number for a bezel with glass for my model (or even just the p/n for the glass)? Appreciate your help if anyone can answer this - I've been looking for a while and I'm pretty stuck.

Answer:X201 Tablet protection plate glass replacement.

The parts you list are not for your machine. There is no glass and it is the wrong shape. You need an assembly that includes the bezel and the LCD panel. The glass cannot be replaced separately

This afternoon, the SXGA+ LCD of my x61t was replaced onsite by an IBM technician.  Unfortunately, I didn't think to verify that tablet functionality was still intact before he left.  Pen input and the tablet buttons appear not to be working.  I am unsure whether this is a driver issue, or if it is possible that the technician installed non-tablet LCD.  Any assistance would be much appreciated.   Thanks.

Answer:x61t pen input and tablet buttons not functional after lcd replacement

Perhaps this will help.  The part requisition sheet in the box the technician brought lists an LCD pro. plate with FRU number 93P5609.  I'm not sure what this part corresponds to.  Looking at the parts page for the x61t, I see that the FRU number for the SXGA+ tablet monitor is 13N7235.  Some sites seem to suggest that these are the same item, but others indicate otherwise. After installing Wacom drivers 5.05-7 (which seemed to have been deleted), tablet buttons appear functional again, but there is still no response from the pen. Thanks, jbclamence

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!

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...

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

Welcome to the [email protected]!  Please contact the help desk about this.  The error that you are seeing is typically related to a bad digitizer.  This is not something that you can replace, as it is attached to the LCD.  They should let you send it in and they will repair this for you.

Answer:Satellite U400-137; Tablet PC Pen - Tablet PC

I doubt you can use a pen, even if the laptop has touchscreen capability.

The Tablet PC laptops have an extra digitizer layer inside the screen to sense pen input, so you would need to have a Tablet PC model like the Portege M750 or M780.

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.

Hi there, I hope someone can answer me a little querstion. I recently bought a x61 tablet and am really happy with it. Although I could be much happier If someone could help me with the following problem. I use Photoshop often, very often and for that reason I use the shift key a lot. In order for me to use it in tablet mode however I always have ot open the lid enough for my hand. I tried to map the tablet pc buttons in the control panel but it doesn't let me. I can map ctrl and alt and all of those but not shift.Is there some secret way to map the shift key? Or do I have to use some loophole and remap one of my normal keys. I hope someone can help me or at least tell me there is no way to do it. It would be greatly appretiated. Thanks in advance Pix (Short for Phoenix )

Answer:x61 tablet - How to map Shift key to tablet buttons?

I don't really have a direct solution for this since I want to customize them as Ctrl, Shift, all kind of this as well. However, there is a workaround that I found it's really good. What you have to have is "Mouse"  wired or wireless doesn't matter. Though I do recommend you to use wireless and Logitech as a brand. The reason why I recommend Logitech is because they have real nice SetPoint program which allows you to customize every buttons on your mouse. Then just map one of them as "shift" It works perfectly.. One hand with pen and another on mouse. I think Razer and Microsoft are another brand I know which have this feature in their software.
