We’ve seen this tablet before but this is the first time that we got to man handle it. We got to go eyes on with the Thinkpad 2 at Computex a few months ago this Windows 8 tablet is running an Intel clover trail Z2760 CPU which is clocked at 1.8GHz. It has a full size USB along side the traditional track point and integrated 3G/4G option. Lenovo has included a crisp 1,366 x 768 IPS 10.1 display, it’s also got a stylus and active digitizer options.
The choice of full Windows 8 rather than Windows RT is a good start – the Tablet 2 will slot neatly into any existing enterprise setup, and run all the same apps – and the ThinkPad keyboard dock, which is obviously removable, has similar feel to the company’s laptop ‘boards.
The Intel x86 architecture allows for the full version of Windows to be pre-loaded, so users will be able to access legacy apps such as the Office suite out-of-the-box.
