Tablet PC Details Emerging
I love my
Tablets, there's no doubt. I also love the Lenovo X300.
The keyboard is Thinkpad'-famous, and the weight is less than
that of the X61 yet includes an optical drive. Now, rumors of
the next Lenovo Tablet PC, the X200, are starting to emerge.
Personally, I can't wait. Although it doesn't look like the X200
will be an X300 in Tablet form (a bit thicker, and no
widescreen), it's sporting a powerhouse with 2.4GHz Centrino
Core2 Duo process and solid state drives (SSD) up to 64G.
JkontheRun reader spotted this in the Manageability
section of Lenovo materials - "UltraBase
dock reference indicating that the accessory is common to the
"X200, X200s and X200 Tablet" which seems to verify the rumors.

that have existed in display technology for the past decade,”
