This is making it’s way around the tablet geek blogs very, very quickly. Michael Gartenberg of Jupiter Research, has named the IBM/Lenovo X41 his Notebook of the Year. He didn’t say Tablet of the year, but notebook. How about that! It’s not perfect, but I really, really enjoy mine. People over focus on raw performance and under appreciate the build, features, quality, battery life, etc. This is a great laptop!
”...the X41 is the successor to my laptop choice last year, the fabulous x40. IBM added a few tweaks here and there but mostly addressed my single biggest issue, the lack of Tablet functionality. Now that’s been addressed and the x41 is a killer system. It’s the first Tablet PC I’ve used where there is no penalty at all for the Tablet OS feature. It just works as a great notebook and when you need it in Tablet mode (like in that middle seat in coach on the way to CES) it’s just there for you.”
