    yes, it is rugged. I wouldnt throw it off a plane but it will take small falls very well. Aside from generational improvements, it is in many ways the same tablet as the x230t, which I have had the pleasure of accidentally abusing more than I'd like to admit; it hasn't missed a beat. I dont know anything about the J3400, someone else will need to chime in

    Great links, thank you!
    Haha, that's good for me, since I am pretty clumsy... Though I like to think I'm pretty good about not damaging my portable electronics.

    I'm getting pretty sold on the x220t now. :) I still am a little curious about the J3400 if anyone has any info on it, as well as if anyone has had any experiences using Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai, etc. on them. Though from what I've read the x220 seems to be great for sketching and some coloring, which is perfect for me.

    Does anyone know if I would be better off getting an x201t instead of an x220t? It has a better vertical resolution (since I'm using it for drawing) and I don't really need the fastest processor around. I doubt I will use anything that requires more RAM than Photoshop. It also looks to be about a $100-$200 difference.
    Is installing Wacom drivers about the same for the two, if anyone knows? I read someone had some difficulty installing them on the x201t.

    From what I've heard (I have an X220t but I've never used an X201t before), the X220t has better battery life (I get around 5-7 hours), support for up to 16 GB RAM, and an IPS display (although the ghosting is really annoying). I haven't had any issues with Wacom drivers on mine.

    Wacom driver installed just fine on my x201t. X220T however has the second core-i generation which is considerably more efficient than the first gen in x201t, so may be tad cooler and faster. I wouldn't worry too much about 16:9 ratio though. In the end I never found myself finishing my work in portrait mode.

    Battery life isn't too big of a deal with me because most times I won't use it more than 3 hours without plugging it in, but the ability to have that much RAM is tempting... though I am unsure of how much RAM is really necessary for what I'm doing. What is the difference between the x201t's and x220t's displays? Also, phew, I'm glad multiple people haven't had a problem with Wacom drivers. Thanks for the info!

    It's good to hear that the x220t's resolution didn't really bother you, because I'm still on the fence about which to get. I guess it really all just boils down to speed and memory, but my problem is that I don't know if going the "more than enough" route will end up being worth the extra money. Thanks for the reply :)

    Would it be worth it to get an i7 x201t with 4GB of RAM and then add if necessary? (Though I doubt I will need to add)
