Not only does it come with all these features, but you can enjoy Lenovo’s 1 or 3 year limited warranty. It also has the standard TrackPoint pointing device with “Press-to-Select,” Internet Scroll Bar, ThinkVantage button and Windows keys.

Pricing for the X61 Tablet starts around $1,600, but this is a sale price. I am sure this sale price won’t be around for long because the original starting price of $2,029 is still listed. There is no word yet on when these will be available for you to actually get your hands on, but according to Lenovo’s product page they will start shipping the X61 Tablets in 1-2 weeks.
