Lenovo Thinkpad 2

2013-01-24, 5:29 AM

Hello, I'm an engineering student at Virginia Tech and it is essential for me to have a tablet of some sort. I was thinking about purchasing the Thinkpad 2 and was wondering how does this compare to the Tablet PC lines? Also, I noticed it runs Windows 8, does that mean this has the power of installing software from 3rd party? I am going to use this mainly for schoolwork and need to download Microsoft OneNote and DyKnow. Thanks!

dcl93,

 

Welcome to the forums! Ravenfire is correct you can install 3rd party appliations on to the Tablet 2, It has full Windows 8 it is basically a portable computer. You may even benefit from the Tablet 2 Dock. Becareful when looking at other Windows Tablets, some only have Windows RT; Basically a restricted Windows Software designed only for OEM Devices.

 

You can get OneNote and I would verify that the DyKnow is supported by Windows 8 on their website. If it is supported you can download it to the Tablet 2.

 

I hope this was helpful! Good luck with your Purchase!

Thank you for being a part of the Lenovo Family,

Catie

dcl93 - I'm not familiar with DyKnow but have been able to download and run some 3rd party apps.  I'm also in VA and may be in your area next weekend.  Let me know if you have any questions.
