The Thinkpad X1 Tablet is a great Surface alternative primarily due to its Kickstand design. Because it lays more flat it’s easier to use as a laptop. The $1349 price tag includes a keyboard dock and a pen.
The keyboard is comfortable but thin. It tends to bounce a bit when latched onto the tablet portion of the machine. The latching of the dock to the tablet is great, it holds on very tightly.
Battery life isn’t great at around 6 hours. An additional battery module will be sold soon that will extend the battery life on the device.
The tablet is powered by a Core-M processor at 1.1ghz. It performs well and is well suited for the kinds of work business tasks that Lenovo Thinkpads are designed for.
