Sometimes even basic information is hard to find. Here's a place for it.
- Lenovo is having fulfillment problems (2008 Q4). Take estimated ship dates with a grain of salt. Ordering from Lenovo seems to be working better than resellers. Some resellers have yet to receive their first unit. One person I know received an X200 within days (direct, replacing stolen machine), another has been waiting for ~2 months.
- The X200T does not support Multi-touch!. "MultiTouch" is Lenovo's misleading way of saying you can use your finger, in addition to a pen. The 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)
- The X200 Tablet Sleeve supports 4 and 8 cell batteries, but not 9 cell. from announcement
- The X200 does not have a touchpad. For folks who really want one, a somewhat messy possibility might be www.ergonomictouchpad.com (never used - no endorsement) which looks vaguely like a Cirque TSM9925 Touchpad with velcro and wire added.
- There can be a big cost difference between preconfigured units from VARs, and custom configured units from shop.lenovo.com, as of 2008-10-31 (examples).
- But shipping delays may be even greater than when ordering directly from Lenovo (2008 Q4).
