At 580g, it’s lighter than the iPad 4, and with all of your ports on the tablet part you can get along just fine without the keyboard/cover.&nbsp;</p> <p>Well, unless you’re doing any typing that is. The keyboard is a mixed bag; it slots together with the Tablet part, but only connects via Bluetooth, and it lacks the flexibility of the likes of the Acer Iconia W510's hinged keyboard dock. There’s also no trackpad – just an optical trackpoint – but that at least leaves space for roomy keys that are a pleasure to type on.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Tablet 2 keyboard" alt="Lenovo Tablet 2 keyboard" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-thinkpad-tablet-2-review-bluetooth-keyboard.jpg?1381703768" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Tablet 2’s brilliant 10.1in screen is very bright, pumping out more nits than Windows 8 hybrid rivals and making it great for outdoor working.</p> <p>It might be bettered by the Asus VivoTab ME400 for colour accuracy but the 1366x768 IPS display is still very punchy with top-notch contrast.

But unlike laptops it comes packing a digitiser pen for all your drawing needs – not unlike Samsung’s S Pen, with similar lag and sensitivity.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo-ThinkPad-Tablet-2.jpg?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_595.png?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 – power </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The ThinkPad Tablet 2 manages to run the full Windows 8 Pro OS on its next generation Intel Atom processor. This might pale in comparison to the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/computers-and-consoles/rumour-mill/microsoft-surface-price-leaked-from-%C2%A3650">Microsoft Surface</a>’s but it appears to run smoothly. But without a host of multitasking and a proper test, the jury's still out on whether the Atom can deliver the full force of Windows 8 Pro.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo-ThinkPad-Tablet-2-stylus_0.jpg?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_1_515.png?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 – connectivity </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>When it comes to connections, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 impresses with a bevy of ports – including USB 2.0, MicroSD, mini-HDMI, and even NFC. There’s also an optional Bluetooth keyboard that the device can be docked into for speedy typing – though there's no sign of batteries to extend the tablet’s life, sadly. And with 3G and 4G LTE options on their way the ThinkPad Tablet 2 certainly won’t be short of data chewing up power.</p><p><strong>You may also like</strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/apps-and-games/news-nugget/amazon-appstore-launches-in-europe-%E2%80%93-kindle-fire-2-incoming"></p><p>Amazon Appstore launches in Europe – Kindle Fire 2 incoming?</a><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/apps-and-games/app-of-the-week/best-iphone-apps-this-week-47"></p><p>Best iPhone apps this week</a><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/ifa/news-nugget/75in-samsung-es9000-smart-tv-coming-to-europe"></p><p>75in Samsung ES9000 Smart TV coming to Europe</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo-ThinkPad-Tablet-design_0.jpg?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/new-twitter-banner_597.jpg?1364399690" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/ifa/hands-on/lenovo-thinkpad-tablet-2-hands-on-review </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/lenovo/lenovo-thinkpad-tablet-2-hands-review/news#comments Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Thu, 30 Aug 2012 13:53:19 +0000 Luke Edwards 422538 at http://www.stuff.tv
