I want to reformat my X220 tablet.
Is there anything I should be cautious of? Which drivers to install? Are all the necessary drivers for tablet use on Lenovo's website? Will I lose anything else except data? Is Thinkvantage necessary? A recommended general procedure?

You need to take backup of data and personal software before formatting the Notebook. All drivers are available in the Lenovo website, you can download and install it, as you need.
If the operating system is pre-shipped with this Notebook, then please re-install the operating system from the recovery disc or ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery.

One word of caution, some of the very recent drivers and software on the site have been quirky for some people to install.
Audios's guide is a great start, but I should mention that since his date of writing it I noticed that some newer drivers would not install fully without me going in and manually running the installer from where the self extracting files were placed. Others have reported the same issue in the forums. I believe this applies mostly to the drivers that were released in March.
I went and downloaded the wifi drivers directly from Intel (in my case), ahead of time, as that was one in particular that was troublesome. Power Manager also took some extra steps to install (which I like, but you may not need).
