Hardware Maintenance Manual - ThinkPad X200/X201 Tablet


Sometimes even basic information is hard to find. Here's a place for it.

  • The standard X200T does not support Multi-touch!. Only the "Enhanced MultiTouch" supports true MultiTouch. The standard X200T uses Wacom's no-longer-cutting-edge non-multitouch screen. Only one contact point is available in hardware.
    Though, hypothetically, you could get two points from a MultiTouch screen, one from finger contact, and one from a stylus hovering over but not touching the screen - they are available in linux as separate devices. It's not clear it's ever been done.
  • GPS - If you have an optional WWAN card (AT&T or Verizon), you have GPS. unconfirmed
  • The 5300 normally has 3 x 3 antennas. Adding the webcam reduces this to 2 x 2. unconfirmed
    Any other conflicts? Bluetooth, etc?
  • X200T configured with SSD do not include the Active Protection System accelerometer. Despite alternate uses (theft deterrence). Confirmed by Lenovo US sales phone, 2008-10. Mitchell 21:54, 28 October 2008 (CET)
    • My x200t that shipped with an SSD (Feb 2009) *does* include the accelerometer. I suspect that the same accelerometer is the one used to automatically change the screen orientation, so it doesn't make sense that any of the tablets wouldn't include it. There's also only a single part number for the motherboard in the Hardware Maintenance Manual: if there was a revision used for units shipped with SSDs it would likely be listed separately.
  • The X200 Tablet Sleeve supports 4 and 8 cell batteries, but not 9 cell. from announcement
