I always bought the tablet series of the X thinkpad. I own a x60t an x61t and now a x220t.
I recently compared the x201t to the x220t. Its a serious backstep.
It lacks quite a few leds on the bottom screen. It has a huge think frame around the screen. The frame is also very thick around the keyboard. The keyboard layout was changed. The Touchpad now was to be curbesmly pressed to generate a keypress, no longer dedicated buttons. The keyboard also has been changed to something less klicky.
The cablelayout outside is a mess. Especially that the power cable has moved to the back, and the ethernet to the right, where formerly everything was on the left.
I also miss the screen locking mechanism of the old series, a solid latch. Instead i now have rubber pads that constantly go missing.
The plus side is an ips panel and multitouch screen, decent speakers.
I will see if lenovo is buyable in the future....
