Got mine today. I'll be updating this post with impressions. Feel free to add yours below. Currently updating everything. Could take an hour+. First thing I noticed is how awkward it feels to hold the tablet in portrait mode. This will probably be the same for all 16:9 tablets. It does feel noticeably lighter than an ipad 2/3 in portrait mode. Perhaps slightly heavier in landscape mode, due to the length/weight distribution. The pixel density is almost the same as the ipad mini. In fact, the width of the screen is the same as the mini when held in portrait mode. Length, top to bottom, appears about 2-3 inches greater than the mini. I'll try to post some pics later. Notes (updated frequently): 64gb wifi, Std win8 Updating is a very slow process. Plan on spending at least 2 hours updating with Lenovo's system tool and windows' updater The digitizer is not the same as the one included with the x220/230t. It is a smaller, mini version. It has some accuracy issues when held at an angle, moreso near the edges. I haven't tried calibrating it yet. The digitizer can be difficult to remove from the tablet. It isn't spring loaded. I have to pull on it with my nail. Get's pretty warm when plugged in and charging. But, doesn't feel much warmer than a charging ipad. Text is much easier to read compared to the ipad Mini, despite the comparable pixel density. This is probably because fonts scale better in Windows. During CPU-intensive tasks, the cores peak around 35C. Otherwise, they over around 25C. I'm using Coretemp as the gauge. Core Temp *edit* I don't believe CoreTemp is reading the temps accurately. A full size USB port on the tablet is super convenient! Lenovo's updater does not detect all of the latest drivers. Go to the update website to get them. Windows Index Score: Proc:3.2, Mem: 4.6, Graphics: 3.7, Gaming:3.3, Primary HD: 5.6. This score is after updating via Lenovo's utility and through the windows updater. There are newer drivers at Lenovo's website. I'll re-run the indexer after installing the latest drivers. updated the drivers from Lenovo's site and re-ran the indexer. Score is slightly lower. Graphics are 3.5 and gaming is 3.2. Everything else is the same. Coretemp occasionally reports really high temps (45C at idle) after awaking from sleep. Probably a bug. Hard reset fixes. Backplate is plastic. No creaking. Slight bit of flex in certain areas, most notably a couple inches under the Thinkpad logo. Picks up fingerprints easily. Nice grippy texture. During CPU-intensive tasks or gaming, the hottest area is the upper-right corner, where the logo is located. Screen is at least on par with the ipad Mini (to my eyes anyway). The screendoor effect (lines between pixels) is about as noticeable as the Mini. However, text is more readable generally, probably because it scales better. No pixel sub-rendering. I don't think any win8 tablets do this because they are designed to be viewed from all four rotations. the images below do not accurately portray the TPT2's screen quality. The Mini's brightness was set around 66% while the TPT2 was around 33%. Boot times: With fast startup off, power button to welcome is 17-20 seconds, another 5-7 seconds to tiles after entering your password. With fast startup on, power button to welcome is 10 seconds, another 5 seconds to tiles. These times are with the TPM chip disabled. Turning the chip on will add another 3-5 seconds from power button to welcome. This is the case even if you have windows 8 std edition and encryption off (not possible to turn on encryption with std ed.). With the Pro edition and encryption on, boot may be even longer. The chip is enabled by default. You must enter bios to turn it off. Performance is generally snappy with lightweight programs, but lags considerably when multitasking or using cpu-intensive programs. Everything slows to a crawl if you are copying files in the background. Chrome launches instantly, while steam takes 45 seconds to autologin and reach your library/storefront. Preliminary battery tests indicate about 8-8.5 hours of web browsing/emailing/writing. This is with brightness at 50% (200 nits). Then again, my battery gauge might not be accurate. I haven't run it down to zero yet. The gauge drops faster from 100% to 90% than from 90% to 80%. Complete discharge to full takes exactly 5 hours. I left the tablet in sleep mode the entire time. Might be a little bit faster if fully shut down.
