Lenovo has just updated two of their ThinkPad products, the ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC and ThinkPad T400s notebook, to incorporate MultiTouch screens that support two-finger gestures and a feature called SimpleTap that launches applications and features using gestures.
The ThinkPad X200 Tablet with the MultiTouch screen option features the same 12.1-inch WXGA display and runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. The spec also includes 1GB of DDR3 memory, a 160GB hard drive and Wi-fi b/g/n connectivity.
It’s a minor upgrade since the basic $1,529 X200 already comes with a touchscreen; the MultiTouch screen version is priced slightly higher at $1,654.
The ThinkPad T400s is a 15-inch notebook that runs on a 2.40GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GBs of DDR3 memory, and integrated GMA 4500MHD graphics. It’s also a bit more full-featured, with a DVD burner, Wi-fi, and a 6-cell battery, along with the usual ThinkPad’s control options that include a Trackpoint and Touchpad. A fingerprint reader also comes with the package.
The MultiTouch screen option adds $400 to the basic T400s price, with the upgraded version selling for $1,999.
