  • This $100 option turns the tablet into a full laptop, with a keyboard that is ThinkPad through and through.

  • The keyboard on the right is as good as many laptops, and the frame on the left is where the tablet plugs in for use in laptop mode.

  • Instead of the typical ThinkPad rubber trackstick, Lenovo has put an optical model on this keyboard. It moves a cursor that appears when touched, which is done by sliding the finger over the stick. There are two full mouse buttons for use with the trackstick.

      @idenchasy Why, because it's better than the iPad?

    Looks nice. Now all we need is a robust, full featured, no compromises Office app for Android.

  • Wait this thing is rectangle

    Apple has patented all rectangles. If you place this next to an IPad, you can clearly see that they are both rectangles. Apple will squash this, along with Etch-a-Sketch and Seseme Street programs that use the shape "Rectangle" or the letter "i".

    Looks good but it has to be priced right to compete with the iPad.

    I would SO rather have one of these than the overhyped iPad!

    Looks great, but why does the keyboard case plug into the only USB port? Seems like they should have had the keyboard/case plug into the proprietary dock port or something.

  • Keyboard case plus into only USB port?

    I'm thinking "wifi" for the keyboard. Surely this tablet comes with wifi or bluetooth.
