X1CT first impressions - no pen input ? & pathetic screen door effect

2013-02-06, 19:06 PM

hello folks, after a 2yr adventure with MacBook Air, I'm back again with Thinkpad, a love story since 1996.


Order placed in mid December and it is only now I received it. Here are my first impressions, other than those probably commented on this forum earlier.


Windows and System Update 5 have been updated. First Windows 8 crash occurred while sleep, but it could be a 'teething' Windows 8 problem, prior to the 33 updates.


Touch works great (I wonder how often I will use it !) and apart from annoying misaligned front right rubber stud, I am more disappointed with the screen, sometimes referred to as the screen door effect.


The areas of disappointment are :


  1. There seems to be no pen input ?!? Could anyone please clarify this ? The screen seems to have like a 'digitiser' (like an ATM display at banks), due to the screen door look. I even bought an extra stylus from Tablet 2, which I thought it would work, but in vain.
  2. Could anything be done to 'improve' that screen door display ? This is pretty annoying.


Many thanks. Clifford
