    By far my favorite is the Thinkpad X220T.  I have never used a faster Tablet PC.  With a few gigs of ram and an Intel SSD they scream even for our engineers running SolidWorks on them.  Best laptops/Tablet to date.

    I’m most interested in the Yoga.  Intriguing form factor.

    I still like powerful computers, which is why my home and work machines are desktops, not laptops.  I’ll go with the IdeaPad Y series.  Seems powerful and affordable.

    I owned a Lenovo Thinkpad X300. This was one of the first lightweight laptops on the market. This was my favorite laptop and had done a lot in my life.  And a little over a year ago it actually survived with me in my motorcycle accident.  (Summary I hit a deer going over 70+mph (was thought 85 but no documentation of this)).  This laptop was sturdy enough to survive, yes in a padded bag but still when I opened my bag (er my sister did while I was in the ER) I was very surprised to still find a working laptop.  No broken glass or case.  The laptop still worked and still had all my homework on it.
    Now if only Lenovo could get a sleek laptop like the Samsung and Mac…. I want durability and looks.

    I like the Yoga; but I also like the Ideapads. The Thinkpad laptops are good for business; but they need a little bit of beautification…. They’re a little too….utilitarian.

    As a student, I would love to get my hands on the X220T, but my budget just don’t cover it; but I have been very happy with my X61T.  However, it recently decided to die on me.  I missed curling up with it in bed or on a couch reading away my notes and books.  This Thinkpad Tablet would re-enable me to do much of my studying, while having a bit of fun without fighting over my wife’s R400.   Would certainly love to try the ever famous Angry Bird with this Thinkpad Tablet!

    I really enjoyed seeing that Lenovo introduced the IdeaPad Yoga at CES.  It just goes to show how far technology has come, and how far it can potentially go.  The Yoga is, in itself, exciting because it makes me wonder what to expect next from future windows 8 platforms… man I love tablets!!!

    I’d pick the Yoga as well. The 360 degree hinge always seemed, to me, to be a better concept than the twisty thing convertibles used and I’m dying to see how it works in the real world.

    I’m a long time ThinkPad user (I still have my 385CD in a corner somewhere in my house) and currently use a Z61t (still running strong) so they are my first choice when I think of new laptop.

    As far as new models go, I like the ThinkPad Edge series since it meets my needs overall.  I don’t know too much about the tablets but I have been looking at the ThinkPad tablets and like what I’m seeing since I’d be wanting one for writing while on the go.

    The Ideapad yoga looks amazing. If it has a Wacom digitizer and win8 truly is instant on, then it would be my dream machine. However, a close second is definitely the Thinkpad Android Tablet and I am looking forward to more software that optimizes the the n-trig digitizer?

    I loved the ThinkPad Tablet convertibles, such as the X61T or the X201T, back when I browsing for a convertible for use for grad school. Although eventually my family and I went to the HP 27X0P line, I will always hold the Lenovo series close to my heart, since it taught me that it was possible to have a great all-day laptop that I could write and draw on, which is AMAZING to a science and math major who really needed that. If you’ve never tried to type a complicated equation in your digital notes, possible one with notation which you’ve never even seen before, before an almost-senile professor erased it from the board to make room for more, you have no idea how much that’s a lifesaver. It also taught me that I really do remember things much better when I jut it down with a pen or pen-like stylus.

    the say the new Yoga announced at CES 2012 looks pretty sweet! I’d love

    Actually the Yoga and the S2110 but I’ve had my eye on the ThinkPad Tablet since it came out primarily due to the digitizer. The price always kept me out of range for getting it though.

    The Lenovo Yoga would be awesome. But my favorite series is the X convertible tablet series. Have owned an X60t and X61t and looking forward to replacing the latter with a Yoga! The SXGA+ screen with digitizer is best in class.

    Easy, my favorite is the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga. I definitely love the way tech is going more and more mobile, and this device combines both features of the tablet and ultrabook: two great and innovative form factors. Lenovo might not be the first adopter on either front, but certainly the first I’ve heard of combining them! Not to mention it’s slated to be running Windows 8 which means it’s compatible software from the get-go will be quite large! The only thing it is missing, or maybe it just hasn’t been announced yet as including it, is an active digitizer like the one found on the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet offered as the prize for this contest. Who knows, Lenovo has been good at listening to it’s customer base so far, and Windows is known for it’s productivity so the final model may include it. Thanks GBM and notebooks.com for the great coverage and awesome contests! Oh, and thanks Lenovo for making rockin’ products and supplying them!

    I really like the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110. I was sold the moment I read about the keyboard dock among other things, being a writer that would be an ideal tablet for me. It’s something I could never afford on my own so I really hope I win. :)

    The ThinkPad series is an all around perfect customizable Android Tablet which would be an amazing tool in my last year of college :)

    I’m a big fan of the thinkpad tablet. I’m glad they offer a 3G capable model.

    Thinkpad tablet…impressed by the SD slot and non-proprietary slots
