4 Minute Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X200 notebook

Bleep Rating

A very cute laptop, with a 12 inch screen, proper keyboard and the usual build quality of a Thinkpad. This is the laptop that businessmen will give their wives when they won’t get them a Mac. It will also impact on the Asus EEPC market I should think. The big big bonus with this tiny machine is that it has a built in 3g modem. Bye bye dongles. Simply slip your 3g SIM into the Thinkpad and away you go. Only disadvantage is that there’s no trackpad. There is the nub thingy. But hey, then it’d be bigger!

No pricing for Ireland just yet but prices are on the way. In the UK customers will get a 30 day free trial with Vodafone. Not so for Ireland, just yet.

    Am I the only person who actually likes those little nub yokes?

    I’m all about the external mouse most of time, but when that’s not available I really can’t stand trackpads. Much prefer the nub.

    My missus prefers to use the Nipple, or “Pointing Stick, as the roper term is. I don’t know how though, any time I try to use one the mouse flies into the corner of the screen and doesn’t come back.

    Nice laptop though. I wonder will it really be cheap enough to affect sales of the EEE’s though? I can’t see it being less than a grand and a half?
