X41Extreme Mobility and Versatility
The X41 Tablet is the smallest and lightest convertible tablet in its class, designed for extremely mobile users who spend most of their time working away from the office. This model has the ability to function both as a tablet and an ultraportable notebook, providing the flexibility to take handwritten notes directly on the screen with the Tablet Digitizer Pen.

X41Better By Design
Designed as part of the industry-leading X40 Series, the X41 Tablet utilizes a unique swivel hinge which allows the screen to rotate 180° to be folded back and used like a clipboard. It has a full-size keyboard and is fully optimized for connectivity, extended memory, and a top-of-the-line chipset. ThinkVantage Technologies are also available to help customers become more competitive and on-demand by delivering industry-leading capabilities for improved productivity and reduced costs.

Security Made Simpler
Select X41 Tablet models are also available with the Integrated Fingerprint Reader for use in tablet and notebook mode. The Integrated Fingerprint Reader is an integrated solution out of the box – making the most secure notebooks available even more convenient to use.

Lenovo Writes the Next Chapter in Tablets; New ThinkPad Tablet X41 Tablet is Industry's Thinnest, Lightest, Most Secure Convertible
Business Wire

-- First New ThinkPad Since Lenovo Bought the PC Division

-- A Simple, Lightweight Flip Changes the View for Tablet Marketplace

Capitalizing on long-term, multidimensional expertise in the development of tablet PCs, Lenovo today announced the newest member of the ThinkPad portfolio -- the ThinkPad X41 Tablet, creating a new alternative in tablet computing without compromises in weight or function.

Previous tablets required people and businesses to make a choice. Either they picked a heavy convertible -- including both tablet slate and keyboard -- or they picked a lighter tablet slate without a keyboard. The ThinkPad X41 Tablet offers a new trifecta in tablet innovation -- writable slate, full-size keyboard(1), and light weight. Starting at 3.5 pounds and 1.14-inches thin, the ThinkPad X41 Tablet is nearly 20 percent lighter than its closest competitor and delivers the longest standard battery life of any 12-inch convertible tablet.(2)

Significant Milestone for Tablet PC Platform

"The launch of the ThinkPad X41 Tablet marks a significant milestone for the Tablet PC platform and is a well-timed response to the growing demand we're seeing for Tablet PC functionality," said Bill Mitchell, Corporate Vice President responsible for mobile PC computing at Microsoft Corporation. "The ThinkPad brand has a distinguished history of industry-leading design and innovation and is a great notebook PC by itself -- but augmented with Tablet PC features it really shines, especially in the enterprise market."

Select models of the ThinkPad X41 Tablet boast the longest standard battery life of any 12-inch convertible tablet, at up to 6.3 hours on select models with the optional 8-cell battery. For mobile workers who demand anytime and anywhere access, users can combine the ThinkPad X41 Tablet's unique battery options to deliver all-day computing, offering up to 8.5 hours of battery life with the optional 8-cell system battery and separate Extended Life Battery.

Also available today, the ThinkPad X41 Tablet Sleeve allows individuals to use the ThinkPad in tablet mode, anywhere, anytime. With 0.4-millimeter-thick plastic cover that users can write through using the provided digital pen, LED/power access, and excellent venting and access ports, the ThinkPad X41 Tablet Sleeve is the perfect companion to the ThinkPad X41 Tablet, and is priced at $49.

The ThinkPad X41 Tablet is available with the new ThinkPad X4 Dock, which provides the same functionality as the ThinkPad X4 Ultrabase Dock in a stationary form factor. Offering additional expansion options for mobile workers, the new dock provides increased functionality, flexible expansion and cable management, and is compatible with the ThinkPad X40, ThinkPad X41 and ThinkPad X41 Tablet. The ThinkPad X4 Dock includes 3 USB 2.0 ports, legacy ports, Ultrabay Slim device bay, 56W AC adapter and integrated key lock and cable lock slot for added security. Its price is $219.

Also available today, the ThinkPad X41 Tablet Sleeve allows individuals to use the ThinkPad in tablet mode, anywhere, anytime.
