Lenovo launches ThinkPad X41 Tablet

Lenovo is introducing its long rumored ThinkPad X41 Tablet, claimed to be almost 20 percent lighter than its closest rival (3.5 pounds), with longer battery life than any other 12-inch-screened convertible.

This is the first product of Lenovo since acquiring IBM's PC division.

Tablet PCs, including models sold with or without keyboards, allow users to use computers with a pen instead of a keyboard and a mouse.

Equipped with the same full-size keyboard and optional integrated fingerprint-reader security as the X41 notebook, the X41 Tablet promises up to 6.3 hours of battery life with its optional 8-cell battery, or 8.5 hours with that pack plus the separate Extended Life Battery. Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu and other top PC makers already offer Tablet PCs.

Based on Intel's low- or ultra-low-voltage Pentium M processors and 915GM chipset with up to 1.5GB of DDR-2 memory, the portable includes data-protecting ThinkVantage Technologies such as a fall- or drop-sensing hard disk parker and one-button Rescue and Recovery tools available even if Windows won't boot.

The ThinkPad X41 Tablet will begin shipping in mid-June starting at $1,899. A $49 Tablet Sleeve provides an 0.4mm-thick see- and write-through plastic cover, while a $219 ThinkPad X4 Dock offers an UltraBay Slim device bay, three USB 2.0, and legacy ports in a desktop equivalent to the snap-on X4 Ultrabase Dock.
