After the release of the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 earlier this year, many speculated that a look-alike convertible tablet would be imminent – and now, it is official. As you’d imagine, the new X200 Tablet shares much of the great qualities of the X200, such as a Core 2 Duo processor and support for up to 4GB of RAM, but adds a rotating display and other tablet capabilities.
With a starting weight of 3.6 pounds, the X200 Tablet can run for up to 4.2 hours on a 4-cell battery, but there’s also an 8-cell battery model which bumps battery life to 10 hours without adding much weight. In addition, Lenovo has introduced a lighter version of the X200 notebook. Dubbed X200s, this model also shares many of the same features as its larger sibling, but its shell makes use of glass composite and carbon fiber to bring the system weight down to a highly portable 2.4 pounds.
Both the X200t and the X200s are expected to be available next week, with prices for the X200s starting at $2,242 and the X200t starting at $2,323.
