The X220 Tablet is the best convertible we’ve tested to date, hands down. It blows away the competition in terms of performance and has the sturdiest build of any tablet outside of the ruggedized units we kick around the office from time to time. It also looks great, has the superb ThinkPad keyboard, and fine inking capabilities.
In fact, we can only really knock it for having only respectable battery life, one-way screen hinge rotation, average speakers, and no USB 3.0 port – which are hardly deal breakers.
There’s no question that the Lenovo X220 Tablet is an excellent device, and it will probably serve as the point of comparison for all future convertibles we test at TabletPCReview. Toshiba, Dell, HP, Fujitsu and other convertible makers, are you paying attention?
