What would you say?
My word is UGLY!
It looks like a Lenovo. I happen to like the look.
What's not to like?
meh, it's a thinkpad
it's bound to be ugly
i think i see array mics
definitely looking forward to the next iteration
doesn't really look much different from the x61t, its already a known fact that the screen attracts fingerprints due to the superview layer.
hmmm, looks like every other lenovo tablet scheme. The buttons are a bit differerent but I like it.
The thick bezel is a bit of a turnoff however. As-is the WWAN hump. It gets in the way of the latch mechanism...
All-In-All, I like it.
It looks exactly like my X61 tablet. The button placement is a bit different but almost 80% the same in terms of build. I also noticed what seemed like a webcam, nice addition Lenovo.
ARRRGGGGGH. No trackpad!
Can someone please KILL the designers at Lenovo?!
why would you want a trackpad after using a ibm/lenovo trackpoint?
It's utilitarian. I don't want manufacturers wasting my money on aesthetics. Just make it work well and pass along the savings.
I love the trackpoint. It wouldn't be a real Lenovo if it didn't have it
it's so funny, i was so resistant to using the trackpoint, that i held off buying the x60 and even waited a bit on the x61, but i made the decision it was the best tablet on the market (at the time) & decided to live w/ it anyway.
So fast forward 9 months, replacing my m200 under best buy replacement plan, and chose not to buy the tx2500, but got a normal laptop w/ a touchpad...and now i can't use the touchpad, i love my trackpoint & the 3 button mouse.
The touchpad just seems so inefficient now.
That the more I see of the X200t, the more glad I am that I bought an X61t on the cheap.
That's a lenovo no q about it.
It has the thinkvantage button
lol no navdial. They traded the navdial for a webcam? *facepalm*
May be it is now a full touch screen that you don't need a navdial button?
How cheap is it?
The trackpoint or touchstyck is much better than a touchpad. You just have to use a trackstick a few days or even weeks and you don't want to use a touchpad any longer.
But still, the others are right, the tablet is ugly. I also don't like those glossy designs like the HP2500, and it also does not have to be a VAIO like tablet, but something fresh would be great. The keyboard is the standard IBM keyboard with the, in my opinion, idiotic layout. Don't know who decided to switch the often used Ctrl key with the almost never used Fn key, and what's those two keys next to the up arrow key? Apart from this the most ugly part is, in my opinion the display part, a not sealed display with dirty and old looking tablet buttons and the frame around the display looks gigantic.
There are plenty of uses for a navdial besides just scrolling the screen.
I personally, have never used the nav dial on any of the tablets I have ever owned... I guess I just haven't found a time I could and wanted to use it. What does everyone else use theirs for?
The fn key I agree, although I got used to it enough that I get confused when I'm using another laptop.
For the back-forward keys, you can change their sensitivity so that you don't accidentally trigger them. Other than those minor issues, I think it'd be too harsh to call this awesome 7-row design "idiotic."
