The ThinkPad X1 Tablet adds true innovation by creating a dynamic and compelling ecosystem, adding functionality based on users’ needs. The X1 Tablet is the first to have an integrated module system providing customization and versatility in a unified, compact form. Modules with different connection ports, stylus or even a projector, can simply be added or interchanged. A highly usable Thin Keyboard / Cover magnetically attaches to the X1 Tablet, with or without the modules. The X1 Tablet is developed with a firm understanding of how people use devices and adds intuitive design and adaptability unlike anything else in the market.
