First Look: Lenovo ThinkPad 10 adds accessories for a very flexible tablet experience

2:31 /

Docks, covers, and keyboards turn this 10-inch tablet into a laptop, desktop, or kiosk.

[MUSIC]. If you're looking for a Windows tablet, but you wanna have a lot of accessories, I've got one for ya. I'm Dan Ackerman, and this is the Lenovo ThinkPad Ten, premium ten inch, full Windows tablet. 1920 by 1200 resolution. Runs an Intel Bay Trail processor. But I think the really interesting part about this guy is all the different accessories you can get for it. I'm gonna start off with the top of the pile right here. And these all run between $40 and about $130. I've got a dock right here that's got three USB 3.0 ports in the back. And then if you want an actual keyboard, well, we've got the the standalone keyboard dock right here. And it's got a little magnetic connector, in addition to the physical connector, so that the keyboard really stays on like that. And it's got a slot for your, for your pen. And, of course, if you wanna travel, you could take it and just connect it like that. And again, the magnet holds it, you know, reasonably tight, like that. You want something that's a little bit more portable than this, you can get the traditional ThinkPad tablet, cover. Snaps right on like this, and the thing I like about this one is, you flip it around to the back, and then there's a special little fold-down corner to expose the camera lens so you can keep the cover on and still take pictures with it. Then if you wan to do even more there's kind of a quasi keyboard cover right here with a flat key thing. And you plug the ThinkPad into this keyboard cover, and they're not full keys, they're kind of flat keys. Slides right in there, and then you have kind of a portable typing surface which is not as good as having a full keyboard, but it takes up a lot less space. And of course it folds up into a reasonably compact package like this and again, there's a little slot for your for your tablet pen. And finally, if you're gonna be underwater or on Mars or something you have the super rugged cover right here that again, has a wrist strap in the back for your hand. It's got the it's got the pen holder right here. Its not water proof it's water resistant. What I really like about this is they've got a little opening at the bottom that snaps open and then you can actually expose the docking connection here. So you can put this in the dock and keep it in the rugged case so you're not pulling it and out all the time. So if you have somebody who need a lot of stocking stuffer gifts for Christmas, and they have a ThinkPad Ten tablet, you're never gonna run out of things to buy. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Lenovo ThinkPad Ten. [MUSIC]
