Lenovo Thinkpad 10 will be available in June for $599

Updated on 14 May 2014 by

There’ll be a 4GB option too! Lenovo have launched the Thinkpad 10 along with a number of accessories. Based on the Intel Baytrail-T Z3795 the Thinkpad has almost all the specifications you could wish for. It’s targeted at the mobile workforce but the for ultra-mobile PCs fans this 60 gram, (1.31 pounds) PC is one to take a close look at. thinkpad-10-ultrabook-keyboard-600x370

The Thinkpad 10 is shown above with the Ultrabook’ keyboard, a $129 accessory that we don’t think has a battery inside but looks to offer a high quality working area. There’s a dock available too. (UBS 3.0 we believe) The digitizer is said to be optional so expect something in the region of $100 for that and the digitizer pen. 128GB and 4GB could take prices very high too. A fully loaded Windos 8.1 Pro model with Ultrabook keyboard is likely to be around $1000 but it could be the only PC some people will need. At under 600 grams it’s going to be a lot lighter than the Dell Venue 11 Pro (Baytrail) which is very important for a tablet. It will be fanless and with the USB3.0 port, microHDMI and separate charging port, very flexible in terms of connectivity and usage.

    I really hope this pushes Dell to release a 4GB V11P, because the 4GB version with keyboard will likely end up very expensive, for something with only 2 significant changes (resolution and RAM) from $300 T100 type devices. I hope we will be looking at devices like this in the $500 all-in range soon. Glad to see some more 4GB devices regardless I guess.

    Chippy, the tablet itself has USB 2.0. You’ve written that it has USB 3.0.

    “It will be fanless and with the USB3.0 port, microHDMI and separate charging port, very flexible in terms of connectivity and usage.”

    The docking port is USB 3.0 based, the free USB port is 2.0.

    You are right. But its not a USB port, is it? Its a proprietary docking port.

    That digitizer better be optional if there’s no silo for it on the tablet itself. I hear there isn’t. Also, too bad they made the keyboard dock worse from the TPT2. They seem to have kept the crappy non-attaching and non-adjustable angle design and also got rid of the trackpoint.

    There isn’t even a USB 3.0 port on the tablet. If they’re going to use the single USB 3.0 bus of the Bay Trail SoC for the desktop dock (supposedly the keyboard dock doesn’t have a USB 3.0 port either) then they could have used an internal 2-port hub to get a USB 3.0 port on the tablet and for the dock. It’ll still be better than a USB 2.0 port in terms of speed.

    I bet the 4 GB and LTE options won’t be available for several months after release. Just look at the ThinkPad 8 and pretty much every other ThinkPad release. Announced features take months to be available.

    Looks like the Lenovo Thinkpad 10-Keyboard and the Lenovo Miix 2 10 Keyboard is compatible with each other. Am I right?
