Tablet broken...AGAIN....

Normally I'm a big fan of Thinkpad products but the tablet has really missed the mark. Been using the Thinkpad line since 1995 and to date its the only laptops line I use.

 

So far my woes include

 

-broken power button (sent back for repair)

-corrupted OS (sent back for repair, waited close to 1 month for a new systemboard)

 

Today, the new system board power button gives up again! So, its back to maintenance once again. 3rd times a charm maybe?

 

So much for waiting for the arrival of ICS and hopes of a better user experience.

 

Sorry had to vent on such a poor design for a product name with such history to uphold.

After reading your trials with this device, and somewhat negative response in today's WSJ article, I'd hope someone from Lenovo would reach out to you and make things as right as they can possibly make them.

 

I used to not believe that this TPT was an experiment by Lenovo, but I'm beginning to change my mind.

I held out for a long time too, but I'll be darned if it wasn't an experiment after all. What else would explain the outright neglect.

Re: Tablet broken...AGAIN....

Tablet is back again, button replaced.

 

They also included a spare power button, I guess in case I breaks again and I want to solder on a new one. Hmmm.

 

Anyhow let's see how long I go with this repair before it breaks again (knock on wood).

 

Hopefully the ICS experience will make the tablet whole again......

Re: Tablet broken...AGAIN....

That's a great move on their part. Sounds like maybe the primary issues still remain though.
