Touch Winner: Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet (Multitouch)
Best Notebooks of the Year


We love the X200 in all its forms, and the multitouch X200 with Windows 7 Professional is no exception. This 12-inch business-minded tablet features Lenovo’s handy SimpleTap utility, allowing quick access to such key notebook functions as brightness control, the keyboard light, locking the system, sleep, volume control, and Wi-Fi on/off. You can also add tile shortcuts to favorite Web sites. With the eight-cell battery option, the X200 Tablet weighs in at a reasonable 4.2 pounds while offering an impressive 7 hours of endurance. Not only did the capacitive digitizer quickly and accurately recognize our finger touches, but it immediately recognized our chicken scratch when we switched to pen-computing mode.">Read Review  |  Compare Prices: $2,075
