CES 2013: Hands on with the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

1:14 /

CNET Senior Editor Scott Stein gives you a first look at the lightest Windows 8 tablet on the market.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein. It's CES 2013. And we've seen the ThinkPad Tablet 2 before and it is out in stores, but it's a reminder of where the current state of Windows 8 is and we're really kind of entering the full Windows 8 tablet period. We've seen Windows RT tablets but there are a lot out there that run the full operating system. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a prime example. It's a got a dual-core Atom processor, it starts in an affordable 649. It's got a pressure sensitive stylus, tucked away on the side, and it's got a wide variety of accessories ranging from a dock that has HDMI, USB, and other goodies in there, two flexible, comfortable cases, and Bluetooth keyboard stand that also has a battery recharge. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 has been out there and you're gonna see probably more tablets along these lines that do have-- run full Windows 8. At 585 grams, this is the lightest full Windows 8 tablet that's out there, and let's gonna keep in mind because as you maybe looking at laptops, and as you maybe looking at convertible devices, keep in mind that there are full Windows 8 tablets that are out there. I'm Scott Stein with the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 at CES 2013.
