"Best Tablet so far with few issues"5.0 starson by plamotte
Pros: Super light weight, tablet is as close to writting on paper as I have seen, easy to hold, great battery life.
Cons: Mini backspace button, no cd/dvd drive, crappy sound, doesn't ship with install CDs, some of the best SW trial only, tablet pen feels cheap.
Summary: I can't understand how so many people can write reviews if they don't own the machine. I unlike most reviews actually have the tablet and LOVE IT! I used to own a thinkpad, and then went Mac. I have been waiting for a windows machine that could bring me back and this is it. I needed a light laptop for b-school, and the tablet feature works great for adding notes to PowerPoint presentations. The IBM software is excellent, however I was shocked that it didn't come with install cds. The virtual drive software that allows you to watch dvds without a drive almost makes up not having the drive built in. For this purpose its actually better than having the actual drive due to less battery use. Maybe I am spoiled coming from a Powerbook, but the sound is awful, and while I probably won't be listening to music that much you really do notice how bad the mono speaker is. Lets be honest IBM had this one in the pipeline before Lenovo took over, and IBM deserves a lot of credit for the though put into the design, including placement of the buttons on the table screen, the ergonomics of the battery which makes it very easy to hold, and the placement of the USB ports on both sides of the laptop. Running is very cool, but I come from the Powerbook world where a few minutes feels like its burning off your flesh. The fingerprint reader was easy to set up, and the built in tutorials make learning to use a tablet easy if not fun. All in all this is really a great laptop and an amazing tablet. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a tablet PC.
