ThinkPad X200

This page gives an overview of all ThinkPad X200 related topics.

Standard Features




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 (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, as of 2008-10-31 (examples).
    But shipping delays may be even greater than when ordering directly from Lenovo (2008 Q4).
