Lenovo’s new ThinkPad 10 business tablet really wants to replace your laptop

by Patrick Pierra

May 13 2014

Lenovo positions its latest Windows tablet as a full laptop/desktop replacement, thanks to a plethora of accessories.

The new ThinkPad 10 will replace the the ThinkPad Tablet 2 next month. Announced today, this 10 inch Windows 8.1 Pro tablet has strong specs, including:

  • A quad-core Intel Atom (Bay Trail) processor
  • 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display
  • 2GB or 4GB of memory
  • 51GB to 128GB of storage
  • dual 2MP/8MP cameras
  • 3G/4G LTE
  • weight of 1.31lbs (598gm)
  • a 10-hour battery life, according to the manufacturer

But it’s the range of accessories which makes it stand apart and could potentially make it a primary device for mobile workers:

  • an Ultrabook keyboard, with chiclet-style keys, which docks the tablet upright or closes like a clamshell ($129)
  • as an alternative, a Touchcase light-weight folio case with flat keys, similar to the Surface Touch Cover  ($119, available this summer)
  • a ruggedized case, with a hand strap on the back, and which doesn’t need to be removed to have the tablet docked ($69, available this summer)
  • a basic Tablet Dock station, with three USB 3.0 ports (one always on so that you can charge another device), an HDMI socket and an Ethernet jack ($119)
  • a digitizer pen ($50)

With a starting price of $599, the ThinkPad 10 may be considered as an individual device for mobile professionals, as well as for corporate deployments.
