Lenovo has created a wonderful machine packed with good specs and useful features. Let's go over them.

Tech Specs:

    • Mutltitouch and Wacom digitizer

    • 300 nits

Features And Ports
  • Battery - 8-cell Li-ion .
  • 2MP front facing webcam.
  • 3 buttons on the screen bezel.
  • Fingerprint reader.

It seems like a very good and feature packed system. Yes you will not do "hardcore" gaming because there's no discrete graphics, you would have to add an external graphics card to do that.

The X201T's build quality feels very solid and looks very "business" like. Lenovo ThinkPads are known for their durability, so the X201T will last a lot of years.
