This is the most usable computer I've ever had. I take it everywhere and can get real work done wherever I am. Not the fastest computer around, but the battery life is great, and if you want to get real work done with office or just play with some apps, this is a great machine.

I received this tablet as a gift and have to say it changed my philosophy I once held of "Anything your tablet can do my laptop can do better." For my uses, which primarily center around my schooling, the ThinkPad 2 delivers solutions. I find the onscreen keyboard efficient and easy to use having once felt I could never get use to typing without a mechanical keyboard. I am able to view and make changes to Microsoft Office documents, PowerPoint and other software packages I regularly use which is very convenient . Even though the display is not the best, the speed of the unit overcompensates for a weaker image as programs, apps and the web browser are blazing fast to load and view. This is the first time I've ever reviewed a product but felt as though it was important to present this as an option for students and business professionals that are looking for a lightweight solution to a laptop.

I love it. The Win 8 on a tablet is the perfect mix. When I need to do work I am in the desktop connected to my monitor and Bluetooth keyboard. When I am relaxing in front of my TV i use Smartglass with my XBOX or when I am having breakfast I am in the Metro mode. It works flawlessly. The pen is a god sent for my note taking and annotations in my meeting.
