X61 Tablet pre-sales questions

2008-02-21, 20:18 PM
I'm considering a new Lenovo X61t w/ XP Tablet and 4g RAM and will appreciate thoughts on the following:
 
1. What is the difference between SuperView WVA SXGA+ TFT versus MultiView + MultiTouch WVA XGA TFT? Which do you prefer & why?
2. When I try to configure online and select the Intel Core 2 Duo L7700 LV (1.8GHz) I lose the option for the SuperView display - I can't get a straight answer from Lenovo -- what gives?
3. Will this X61t support an upgrade to Vista Ultimate after it no longer, um, blows?
4. If I buy OneNote 2007 as a pre-load, will it work w/ Office Prof Enterprise Edition 2003?
 
thanks,
joe
 
disclaimer: I've already spent lots of time on the forum doing homework - pls don't waste my time w/ all the reasons not to buy the unit. conversely, all good content is greatly appreciated!!

I can tell you right now that vista doesnt blow. It is running very smooth and fast for me. I am using business though, since my tablet is only used for school and some light movie watching when traveling. I would completely recommend vista especially if your getting 4 gigs of ram.

I would recomend doing a fresh install after you get your unit so you can get rid of the Lenovo bloat that comes with a new unit. My performance increased 80% after a fresh install of vista.

As for the rest I cant answer.

1. What is the difference between SuperView WVA SXGA+ TFT versus MultiView + MultiTouch WVA XGA TFT? Which do you prefer & why? Both of these screens are considered to be outdoor viewable, but they differ in their resolution & input. The SuperView panel is SXGA+ resolution, at 1400x1050 pixels, and you can only use the digitizer pen for display input. The MultiView/MultiTouch screen is only XGA resolution, at 1024x768 pixels, but you can use your finger to interact with the system via touching the display; as well as use the digitizer pen. However do realize that the touch input is pressure sensitive, so it is best used for selecting things like "OK" boxes or clicking on the Start menu, etc.
I personally prefer the SXGA+ screen - I can't stand low resolution and would ONLY be able to have a system with a resolution comparable to 1400x1050.
2. When I try to configure online and select the Intel Core 2 Duo L7700 LV (1.8GHz) I lose the option for the SuperView display - I can't get a straight answer from Lenovo -- what gives?
This is likely just a situation where we did not invest in the qualification that is required to certify a new processor option with the various base configurations. It is misfortunate, but unfortunately just is-what-it-is.
3. Will this X61t support an upgrade to Vista Ultimate after it no longer, um, blows?
All X61T models support Vista and specifically Vista Ultimate 32-bit - just make sure you have plenty of RAM ;)
4. If I buy OneNote 2007 as a pre-load, will it work w/ Office Prof Enterprise Edition 2003?
I have no official answer here, but my experience is that you can mix & match versions like that. At one point I had Office 2007 & OneNote 2003 with no issues.
 

Joe - see my answers in bold above. Welcome to the community and enjoy your stay!

Tim:
 
Thanks huge! I recently (sadly) got 4 different answers from 4 different Lenovo sales reps (via 4 different phone conversations) re: the above and was reconsidering my decision to buy a Thinkpad - you've reassured me & I'll buy one shortly.
 
Cheers,
Joe
