Lenovo went public with its ThinkPad X200 tablet PC last week, so we're not surprised to see the machine finally up and available on Lenovo's website today. The ThinkPad X200 Tablet has the same gooey Centrino 2 core as its non-tablet cousin, the ThinkPad X200, but with a crunchy tablet-style exterior (oh, and a 12.1" display on a rotating hinge).
Right now, Lenovo offers only one ThinkPad X200 Tablet model. Priced at $1,844, that system packs a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU9300, 1GB of DDR3-1066 RAM, an 80GB hard disk drive, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and a four-cell battery. You can go in and customize it to your liking, of course. Lenovo offers options like a 1.86GHz CPU, a multi-touch display, 802.11n wireless, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and an eight-cell battery. You can also supplant the 80GB HDD with faster, higher-capacity HDDs or a 64GB solid-state drive, although the latter does cost a hefty $680.
Check out last week's post for more details and a video of the ThinkPad X200 Tablet in action. You'll need something to kill the time if you order one of these, anyway, since Lenovo quotes a one- to two-week lead time on shipments. (Thanks to Engadget for the tip.)
