It's Seriously Good
It's seriously, refreshingly good. It's the sort of device we'd award an editor's choice... if Engadget did such things.
Truly Compelling
With its all-day battery life, light weight, accurate stylus and optional comfy keyboard, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a truly compelling productivity companion.
It's a Reasonable Choice
The unusual AIO form factor wont be to everyone's taste, but it remains a reasonable choice for users requiring a proper Windows 8 tablet.
Frustrating to Use
For the price, we'd definitely opt for the iPad, which is faster, has hundreds of thousands more apps (custom-built for it, too), and is generally more pleasant to use.
Good Alternative to the Surface Pro
The Lenovo Tablet 2 is obviously geared at business professionals, but we'd go as far as to suggest this to anyone looking for a Windows 8 slate.
Mostly Approve Mixed/Caveated
