Tablet Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a laptop, a projector and 3D camera


Tablet Lenovo ThinkPad X1 can turn into a laptop, a projector and 3D camera. Each computer manufacturers tried to create the perfect tablet that makes a little more than usual, and now Lenovo has a fresh look at that formula. Today at CES, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. This Lenovo Tab is a regular 12-inch tablet Equipped with the latest Intel Core chipset M7, but also a little more.

Lenovo's Yoga series is known for its unique view of the laptop with his comings and goings and is now trying to modularize the tablet. During the main part of the ThinkPad X1 looks like any other Windows tablet but three modules can be attached to the bottom thereof it can change into a portable computer, a projector or a 3D camera. Modules are like batteries and battery life "productivity" is long for another five hours extended with HDMI and USB ports.

Modules "presenter" Lenovo includes an advanced projector to project a 60-inch screen at the bottom of the ThinkPad X1. The last module in combination to capture and manipulate objects for 3D printing with Intel REAL SENSE camera. We have seen these cameras are on desktop and laptop computers, but not occupied by many tablets and taken advantage of 3D images. Put a 3D camera on the bottom of the ThinkPad X1 really only detect objects, and not two, as a webcam.

The main problem with Lenovo modules here is that they are incredibly complicated and difficult to connect. You have to peel a case which includes the connection terminals and fixing the modules includes releasing some screws so that they are leveled. Everything is a little too complicated for regular use.

The modules are difficult to fix a little.

While the modules to be mildly uncomfortable, the combination of Lenovo also uses a kickstand and the keyboard, as used by Microsoft Surface tablets. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet Keyboard is a ThinkPad keyboard with trackpad TrackPoint. There is even an active stylus for the drawing, but is optional and can cost you additional $50.

There is a small latch that releases the back, and set a number of angles instead of a resistive hinge. Like many other tablets trying to be a laptop, it lacks the simplicity of a full laptop hinge. Nor that it is strong enough, if you tap on the screen with stand, and I knew it would bounce a lot.

My first impression is that Lenovo has perfected the laptop-tablet hybrid, but the additional modules are an interesting concept. Unfortunately, this does not work come bundled with the tablet ThinkPad X1. Additional port camera / 3D battery modules will cost you $149, and the projector $279. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 to launch the tablet in February at $899 price, so you're looking at over $1000, if the functionality of the modules included.
