Re: Thinkpad Tablet 2 - First impressions

The link that others posted was where I saw it originally. This also puts me out of the running since for me to have Windows 8, but not have it work with my external drives is a killer. I think I'm going to either have to wait for some second generation devices or just go back to the idea of having a tablet just be a tablet and grab the Galaxy Note 10.1.

1sTemp1aR - will the external hard drive work if the tablet is being charged through the normal adapter?

Agree - this is a major problem for me too. I need to install a number of windows programs onto the tablet and was planning on doing so through my HDD (USB powered). Also need to back things up.

 

I guess I could connect my laptop to the TPT2 and transfer files that way or through a wireless network, right?

No, I tried that also.

Another question:

 

Does the TPT2 only display in landscape or will it change to portrait when you turn it sideways?

You mighg be able too. But most of our software is still on DVD, so that does us no good. And why should Lenovo TP2 customers have to jump through all these hoops just to perform basic tasks that all of ghd competing Atom W8 tablets do just fine?

Re: Thinkpad Tablet 2 - First impressions

Great review! I am about to buy one as a complement to my T410s, especially to use during workshops with clients. I have tried to use an Ipad for this but it is too unpractical when it isn't part of a Windows eco-system. 

 

I am confused about the "pen/digitzer": Is the "pen/digizier" optional in terms of hardware for the device itself? That is, if I buy a Tablet without the pen or a tablet with the wrong configuration then I will be stuck with finger input only. When I read the announcements on the web, it isn't clear if the pen input is a separate base configuration or not.
