Thanks to all the new Tablet PC releases, the Tablet community has had little sleep. In fact since Lenovo released the X61 Tablet PC, our Lenovo forum has been active 24-7. Users are so anxious to get their hands on this beloved machine that they are checking their estimated ship dates two and three times a day. I can’t blame them either because I was quite impressed with the X61 when I got a chance to do a hands-on review.
The X61 fills the shoes of its predecessor, the X60, very well. That is probably why it is battling HP’s tx1000 for first place on our "Most Popular Tablet PC" list. It has a Core 2 Duo L7500 1.6GHz processor, 2GB DDR2, 100GB hard drive (which can be changed), Intel GMA X3100 graphics, a 12.1" MultiView/MultiTouch XGA display, excellent battery life and much more.
I personally like the X61’s solid design and humble appearance. It also doesn’t hurt to mention that it did better on the benchmark tests than the X60. Check out our hands-on video of the X61 in action below:
The ThinkPad X61 Tablet PC Owner’s Lounge thread has 6,583 views, 193 replies and counting. It is definitely taking home the gold compared to the other Tablet release announcements. If you are curious about buying the X61 or need some questions answered you can check out what other TabletPCReview.com forum members are saying about Lenovo’s newest Tablet there.
It seems most members are discussing what configurations they purchased, what you can and should upgrade and what their estimated shipping dates are. We all know Lenovo can drop the ball when it comes to shipping and a few of our members have been expressing their concerns over this. Good news though, some members have already received their X61 Tablets before the estimated shipping dates, so hang in there.
