The X60 Tablet has undergone some changes in the exterior design of the latest ThinkPad X41 Tablet (X41t).
The main differences between the outside and X41t X60t are:
- The X60t is slightly thicker than the past X41t - the X60t is 1.30 “at its thickest point while the X41t was a thin 1.26.” The greatest resistance comes from having a larger unit and faster 2.5-inch drives on the X60t, so I think everyone will agree, is worth the commitment.
- Currently there are 3 USB 2.0 ports instead of two in the X41t.
- The X60t now has a FireWire port, the X41t did not
- Added to the front of the X60t is a switch on / off wireless
- The X60t weighs 3.77 pounds with a 4-cell battery and 4.23 pounds with the 8 cell. The X41t weighed 3.5 pounds / 4.0 pounds, respectively, no weight gain here
- The X60t has NavDial is a key to the multi-direction, while in tablet mode is improved page up / down on the X41t
- XGA or SXGA display is offered with the X60t, you can also have a pen / finger touch screen with XGA resolution. A new feature called ActiveRotate also improves the screen functionality on the X41t X60t.
- button color and shapes have changed in the keyboard area, for example, now there are bands of red buttons and smooth power button is silver not black.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC - November 14, 2006 - Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC is a new generation convertible tablet technology trifecta for innovation, portability and performance - in turn with two new screen choices and other innovative features Lenovo, as Active. Lenovo is the manufacturer of PCs for category screen 12-inch laptops offer the new, next MultiView / MultiTouch screen features in a convertible Tablet PC, giving users the computing power to work, of course, the field or in the office.
Of course, the X60 Tablet PC, the ability to touch-screen LCD in both laptop mode and tablet mode complete. Wacom Power Touch This feature is a place where most if not all competitors enter. The X60 is the almost perfect handwriting recognition based on pen control very well, and if the included stylus is lost, the X60 can be used with a finger or a PDA stylus.
The buttons on the Tablet PC
When in tablet mode, which are obviously not have access to the keyboard and there are certain characteristics that are difficult to perform, so Lenovo has a couple of shortcut buttons located on the side to help. Here is a list of what you get:
- Move your finger on the biometric security features
- Navigation Dial to scroll up and down and sideways. The best is when you turn the navigation screen scroll wheel is smart enough to know that the “new up” is so pressing, it is always you.
- Shortcut button for Esc key
- Shortcut button to open Tablet shortcut menu of things like adjust the screen brightness, volume and connection manager.
- Button to manually rotate the screen to the right
- shortcut button, which is the same as holding “Ctrl Alt Del to open Task Manager, you can close applications (purchase or use of processor) strength. Type a sad statement that there had been real. But Is Windows and programs crash.
- Power button to lock or unlock to prevent a blow-and-off.
According to the website of the IBM X60 to 7.5 hours of battery life. With the optional 8-cell lithium ion. The standard 4-cell battery that constantly receives half the battery life - just under 4 hours. Naturally, the evaluations of the battery manufacturer is often higher than the real world. If you are a road warrior, the handle is missing in their reports throughout the duration of cross-country flight requirements, then the 8-cell lenovo thinkpad x60 tablet battery is your best bet. 8-cell battery weighs a pound.
The battery of a notebook is for me the most important factor of all. With the two X60 tablets review, we have both and 4-8 cell battery available. The battery sticks out of 8 cells in the back of the computer for about an inch and adds an additional 0.5 pounds. But the rate of 8 cells that better quality of life.
In my application, I could get about 5 hours of battery life with 8 cell battery. intermittently with screen brightness at level 3, wi-fi and the X60t. Note that this is requested 7.5 hours of autonomy. If the screen is dark, turn off all radios and had a slower Core Solo processor (but easy on the battery) 4200rpm hard drive, you could probably get 7 hours of battery time of the X60t. Do not expect this time 7.5 times cited in a real use, however. That said, I was very excited to get so close to 5 hours of battery life I do. 4-cell battery at temperatures between 2.5 to 3 hours in my use of Wi-Fi when you shut down and an average brightness of the screen.
The dilemma, you have to do is select the batteries, 8 cell, which keeps you informed about 4 pounds which is much more difficult to use in Tablet PC mode for long periods of time when you are standing - it hurts arm. 4-cell battery makes the X60t much more portable and easy to hold in tablet mode.
