Gear: ThinkPad Tablet Sleeve, X230T Accessories.
There are many cases available, but there are not many "tablet" specific cases. The ThinkPad Tablet Sleeve is a case that works with both the X220 and X230 Tablets.
A few notes:
- The case comes with a strap.
- The strap is adjustable.
- You can cross body the case (ie messenger style).
- The strap can be removed completely.
- The back panel has webbing.
- Because of the webbing there is ventilation to the system.
- All ports and features are accessible.
- The front flap keeps the screen protected.
- It can be moved to the back, and secured.
- This flap also has an X handle.
- I would not use the case facing down (it's not a good idea).
- The sleeve's window has a hideous extra bulk (which bunches up and leaves a gap).
- The sleeve supports 6-cell and 3-cell batteries.
- Expect this sleeve to be used for tablet input only.
- No keyboard input.
- The sleeve uses velcro to secure the system, which is pretty tough and makes a lot of noise when taking the X230T out.
- While the X230T is not the slimmest tablet available, the ThinkPad Tablet Sleeve makes the system feel even bulkier. It does feel heavy after a while.
I am not going to keep the ThinkPad Tablet Sleeve because I use a rooCase 12.1 Inch Laptop Deluxe Bag. The rooCase is better for my type of usage, which includes the keyboard.
The ThinkPad Tablet Sleeve is good for tablet mode only. I hope this gives you some ideas of what to expect with this sleeve/case. No more new posts for another week.
