Is it worth replacing my X61t with a x201?

you may want to get the hinge fixed (provided that you did not damage the laptop yourself by dropping it) under the post warranty warranty service, then sell the laptop and put the money towards a new X201.

I tried ordering a full-specced X201 Tablet from Lenovo. Initially the order was delayed because of a shortage of Core I7 640 processors (so I had to downgrade), then the volcano over Europe delayed shipping, now it has to be returned to Lenovo because of a fault charging either of the batteries with either of the power adapters.

 

I notice that Lenovo has withdrawn this model from their site and no longer offer it for sale.

 

I'd wait, if I were you.

Fellow Lenovo lovers, the X201t is listed at $2114.

As i recall, the X200t was about $1400.

I thought laptop prices come down with each new model. Does anyone know what is happening with the X Tablet line?

 

The S series tablet doesn't take a stylus and has a terrible resolution. I finally decided I need a tablet, and I like the Lenovos best of all.

 

Will there be a less expensive (around $1500) X tablet coming out? Why is the X201 so much more expensive than its replacement?

something called price skimming comes to mind. Also, subsided model always become cheaper when it is replaced by the new model.

 

If i am you, i would just get a X200t, and keep the change.
