Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet review: Smart design makes up for performance shortcomings

It would be a disservice to Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Tablet to focus solely on the benchmarks. Because while other competitors in the convertible tablet space might boast superior performance, Lenovo’s latest entry to the ThinkPad line honors the brand’s legacy with a series of thoughtfully considered touches, including a bookend kickstand that seems obvious in retrospect.

There’s a good chance you’re mulling over Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Tablet convertible based on the strength of the ThinkPad keyboard alone, long considered an industry gold standard. Lenovo complements that with not one, but two options for storing the included stylus, as well an ingenious kickstand that folds flat across your legs, making lap work feasible. You also get a display that’s among the higher-resolution options available at 2160×1440, albeit still markedly lower-res than the screen in Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 (2736×1824).
