Lenovo's ThinkPad 10 can add accessories to work as a tablet, laptop or micro all-in-one. It has some premium features to match its premium price, but not a premium CPU.

- Dan Ackerman , Cnet 


The ThinkPad 10 largely succeeds at its goal of providing Windows users a portable, productive table, but it’s outside the average consumer’s comfort zone.

A very flexible hybrid tablet with an excellent high-resolution screen

from Cnet

The sheer flexibility of the ThinkPad 10 ecosystem is appealing for using a single device -- in different configurations -- at home, at the office, or on the road. In practice, I found it worked best paired with the keyboard cover as a coffee shop or airplane seat computer. On its own, it's a harder case to make, but that's largely because Windows 8 has yet to prove it really works as a satisfying full-time tablet OS...

The sheer flexibility of the ThinkPad 10 ecosystem is appealing for using a single device -- in different configurations -- at home, at the office, or on the road. In practice, I found it worked best paired with the keyboard cover as a coffee shop or airplane seat computer. On its own, it's a harder case to make, but that's largely because Windows 8 has yet to prove it really works as a satisfying full-time tablet OS.

The ThinkPad 10 feels great in the hand, but the price, especially considering the sold-separately accessories, gives me pause. If you can find the base tablet for under $500, as I've seen on Amazon, it's reasonable. At the more than $700 Lenovo is selling it directly for right now, it's overpriced for the performance it offers.

The ThinkPad 10 is a very capable business tablet that offers optional accessories that transform it from a Windows 8 tablet to an on the go productivity machine that can also work in an office with a larger display, more storage and full mouse and keyboard.

For business users that want a portable machine capable of doing almost everything their full Windows 8 machine does in the office, or who want to use this as their primary device with a dock and a keyboard case this certainly delivers easy use and productivity at an attractive price.

Notebookcheck

Most certainly a solid tablet with plenty of great attributes

from Notebookcheck

The business tablet and convertible market is a difficult nut to crack, and the ThinkPad 10 (while a valiant effort) once again demonstrates just why that is. It certainly does a lot of things right; topping the list of positives is the excellent battery life, great portability, good construction, and the option for 4 GB of RAM (and thus support for 64-bit Windows). We also were thrilled to see support for a keyboard dock, docking station, and a digitizer pen...

The business tablet and convertible market is a difficult nut to crack, and the ThinkPad 10 (while a valiant effort) once again demonstrates just why that is. It certainly does a lot of things right; topping the list of positives is the excellent battery life, great portability, good construction, and the option for 4 GB of RAM (and thus support for 64-bit Windows). We also were thrilled to see support for a keyboard dock, docking station, and a digitizer pen.

But when you are selling to a market as choosy as that of business professionals, getting most of the details right just isn’t enough. And—for all its positives—the devil’s in the details with the ThinkPad 10. Although the passive cooling contributes to its stellar battery life, it also feeds the thermal monster which results in frequent and obstructive performance throttling anytime moderate to heavy workloads are introduced. And considering that its size is approaching that of small Ultrabooks (especially with the keyboard base taken into account), some of its specifications are unfortunately constrained by the conventions of tablet design. Take, for example, its sluggish eMMC storage and the general lack of ports (including a sole USB 2.0 port with no options for USB 3.0 connectivity apart from the separately-sold dock).

Speaking of which, that’s the final and perhaps biggest issue of all: if you include the Ultrabook Keyboard ($120) and ThinkPad Tablet Dock ($130) accessories in the bill—both of which are essentially necessary if the user needs a physical keyboard or a reasonable array of ports—this $600 tablet climbs to an $850 MSRP. That’s a lot for a machine with compromises when there’s already such a large selection of traditional notebooks available for that price.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad 10 is one of the most technically impressive Windows tablets we’ve ever handled. Though it doesn’t match the thin design and long battery life of an iPad or Android tablet, it comes close, and still offers a full Windows 8.1 experience with all the functionality that entails.

The price is the catch. At $600, the ThinkPad 10 is hundreds more than competitors like the Acer Switch 10 and Dell Venue Pro, both of which offer roughly comparable hardware. Our entry-level review unit, which includes a 64GB hard drive, ties the price of a 64GB iPad Air and is much more expensive than a similar Sony Xperia X2 or Samsung Galaxy Tab. Most readers will find these alternatives a better value due to lower price, better display, long battery life, or a combination of these traits.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is also a competitor. Though more expensive, it also offers a larger screen and more powerful hardware. Portability is what defines the Pro 3 from the ThinkPad 10; the latter is less capable, but smaller and easier to carry. Lenovo also includes a stylus by default, while Microsoft charges $50 for the privilege.

Still, for a certain user, the ThinkPad 10 makes sense. This is the most portable Windows 8.1 tablet we’ve reviewed, and it nearly ties the Surface Pro 3 in functionality. A useful digitizer pen is included and a host of accessories are available to expand its capabilities, though they come at a steep price. Lenovo’s tablet isn’t built for most of us, but it’s a strong contender for those few who need a portable Windows tablet.

A business-friendly Windows tablet

from Laptop Magazine

For $150 less than premium Android tablets and the iPad Air, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is a pretty strong value. The slate sports a handy kickstand, loud speakers, and enough battery life to make it through a full day of work and play. Unfortunately, the tablet's sluggish performance makes it a poor choice for demanding games, while users who are picky about color quality won't like the 1080p display...

For $150 less than premium Android tablets and the iPad Air, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is a pretty strong value. The slate sports a handy kickstand, loud speakers, and enough battery life to make it through a full day of work and play. Unfortunately, the tablet's sluggish performance makes it a poor choice for demanding games, while users who are picky about color quality won't like the 1080p display.

For just $10 more, you can get the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T, which is much more powerful and has a better screen. And, if you're willing to splurge, the $499 Galaxy Tab S 10.5 has the most vibrant display of any tablet this size. However, if long endurance is paramount, the Tablet 10 HD+ is certainly worth considering.

A thinner, lighter Windows tablet with a high-res display

The ThinkPad 10 ticks a lot of the right boxes. The most important element of this tablet, its screen, is top-notch. The Atom processor is more than capable for everyday tasks, especially with a 4GB RAM option. A wide array of accessories covers the majority of use cases and input preferences.

The only thing holding me back from scoring this tablet higher than its closest competition, the Dell Venue 11 Pro, is the fixed angle on Lenovo’s Ultrabook dock. It was that annoying to use on a table with the screen tipped so far back. If I had to buy one or the other, I still lean toward the ThinkPad 10. But I’d pass over the Ultrabook dock in favor of the Quickshot cover to hold the pen and prop up the tablet. Then I’d need to find the ultimate Bluetooth keyboard to go with it.

Decent performance but too expensive at launch

from TabletPCReview

The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 has the pen, performance, and full-sized ports to be a productive machine. It would be easy to overlook its design and display issues if it were reasonably priced.

It’s not reasonably priced.

It starts a $599 as of this writing, and that’s without any accessories. For road warriors not interested in pen that are just looking for a well-built Window 8 machine, a superior Microsoft Surface 2 with a Type Cover 2 can be had for $580. That it runs Windows RT might make it a no-go for some IT departments, but Windows RT won’t hinder most business travelers looking to be productive on the road.

Those that need a Wacom tablet on the cheap should look to the Asus VivoTab Note 8. It’s smaller than the ThinkPad 10 and doesn’t have full-sized ports, but it has a Wacom display and pen, ships with Office Home and Student, and costs as little as $300 as of this writing.

ThinkPad and active pen devotees still intent on buying the ThinkPad10 should wait a bit for a price drop or deal. Lenovo routinely discounts its devices shortly after launch, and a ThinkPad 10 in the $400 range seems like a good deal.

Lenovo's Thinkpad 10 is a wonderful little Windows tablet, and the keyboard and dock accessories expand its usefulness ten-fold, allowing it to double as a workstation of sorts when needed. The display is exceptionally crisp and bright, and the keyboard dock is very functional -- you can adjust to using it immediately, rather than training your fingers to the often spongy feel of many tablet keyboards. There are no complaints about the Thinkpad 10; if you need a tablet for business or for tasks Android isn't quite up for, Lenovo's newest offering is an excellent choice.
