Good, but insufficient memory.

Date: February 6, 2014
Pros: Battery, Weight, Durability, Bluetooth, Wireless card, Screen size, Storage, Display resolution
Cons: Video card, Memory, Input/Output compatibility, Keyboard/peripherals, Processor, Display performance
"This is a good overall tablet, however the paltry 2GB or ram, no stylus, and no full size USB port may drive someone to get the older ThinkPad Tablet 2. Something good though is the 128GB of SSD, while most other manufacturers go up to 64GB."

No USB while charging

Date: February 5, 2014
Pros: Processor, Storage, Display resolution
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, effectively useless usb port while charging.
"First I have to applaud Lenovo for bringing in a clear upgrade from their previous 8" Windows 8.1 tablet.
Giving it a 1920x1200 res screen, lets you unplug it from your larger monitor and not have to resize windows.
USB 3.0 is a great upgrade, giving you many more possibilities than any other 8" Windows 8.1 tablet.
All this is destroyed by the incompetent move to only supply the device with ONE USB port that is used to POWER THE MACHINE. So everything I said above, becomes USELESS, because you have to use the ONLY USB port to charge the machine, which makes it useless as a desktop PC.
This is a shame, because the Baytrail processor is more than enough for most desktop work. You can even play lower level games on this machine."

How is this a thinkpad with no digitizer?

Date: February 5, 2014
Pros: Processor, Storage, screen pixel density
Cons: Battery, Weight, lack of wacom, too many logos
"Appreciated the design for the most part, especially the screen is quite good, but do we really need logos in the front and the back? Quickshot cover is innovative but frankly a gimmick. Most importantly, why is there no Wacom option like the other Thinkpads?
To me its no better than the Lenovo Miix 2 (and that is a pretty horrible product, with quality issues). A slightly higher clocked Baytrail processor and USB 3.0 and adding a micor-HDMI port (which should have been on the Miix as well) doesn't justify this premium pricing.
Lack of Wacom gives it no redeeming features over other tablets in its class, so yes, I can't honestly recommend it to anyone."

Another 6 months wait to get the right one :)

Date: February 4, 2014
Pros: Screen size, Display resolution
Cons: Wireless card, Weight
"Overall a good product, but very sad it is without LTE support.
I have a Surface PRO, which works well as a Ultrabook. I was looking for a real Tablet and though ThinkPad will be one.
Very disappointed to not have LTE. Wondering why we don't get a tablet with all in one. Some has Stylus, but not great resolution. The ones with great resolution doesn't have Stylus and LTE. May be OEMs are running out of Innovation so they want to keep some features for next version.
Looks like, another 6 months wait to get the right one :)

Not much different than any other Win 8 tablet

Date: January 29, 2014
Pros: Weight, Processor, Memory, Screen size, Display resolution
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, docking solution, digitizer pen support, price
"Yes, it does have a higher resolution and optionally comes with 128GB RAM. That said, one pays a hefty price for it that isn't necessary worthwhile the investment. The main drawbacks of this tablet are: not being able to dock and charge simultaneously and lack of digitizer that enables you to write accurately on the screen and use the tablet as a note pad.
Due to such lacks, I'd recommend buying the other tablet solutions like the Encore with 64GB of RAM and somewhat lower resolution, but everything similar otherwise. It is $100 less in price.
