Engadget Review

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the best low-powered Windows 8 tablet we've tested, thanks to its 10-hour battery and an unmatched typing experience.

Pros
  • Long battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Allows for pen input
  • Wide viewing angles
Cons
  • Pen support isn't standard
  • Bluetooth occasionally causes typing lags
  • USB port doesn't work with USB hard drives or external optical drives
