    I just received mine from ANT Online. I purchased the M7 with 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM. It came with the keyboard and stylus. I have a SP3, a Thinkpad 10 2nd edition, Samsung Galaxy TAB Pro S and this. I have tried the SP4 and SurfaceBook as well. I can honestly say that the X! typing experience is hands down the best out of all of these except the Surface Book. I got so tired of the bounce in the Surface keyboards and having the cursor move to different parts of the screen that I took the plunge to purchase the Thinkpad. The build quality is excellent and the weight, size seems no different than the SP4 with a keyboard. The volume is fine and I prefer the Wacom inking to the N-Trig that the Surface uses. The trackpad on the Thinkpad is more accurate than the SP4 IMO and the display is excellent. I am getting over 6 hours of battery life at 75% brightness which is much better than the 3 to 4 hours I would get with the SP4. One con is that you don't get all of the positions from the kickstand that you get with the SP4 but the way I use it that is not a big deal for me.

    I have had some issues with the Intel WiFi card not turning on after a reboot but I am sure that will be fixed in a future firmware update. I would not hesitate to recommend this tablet to anyone that is looking for the best typing experience in the SP4 form factor. A full I-Core processor option would certainly be more welcomed but for users needing Office functionality and email this is fine. I can play 4k videos off youttube without issue. The X1 charges much faster than the SP4 and the power cord is much smaller and easier to transport. I will update my feedback after some more time with the tablet.

    It is not that one. It is a larger square end attached directly to the USB-C power cord. The outlet prongs don't fold in either. It is 45W but charges very fast. Lisa shows a picture of the charger in her review just above my post so watch that to see about the size. Thanks.

    Looks good , but I was a bit disappointed with Battery life
    Techgeek32 said 6-7 hours , as did Lisa.

    I was at Fielman Friday, and they are working with the TP10.
    Really nice looking thing.
    That with Core-M, 8GB RAM and a SSD would buy it at once, without asking for the price.
