Lenovo ThinkPad X200t  (Source: TabletPCreview)
Official specifications and information is unknown

It has been a while since the FCC has leaked an interesting product before its official announcement. The FCC recently leaked a crude line drawing of the bottom of the Lenovo ThinkPad X200t. The line drawing of the bottom of the notebook is all the information offered by the FCC.

With no real information available on the X200t, notebook specifications and features are unknown. In addition to the line art at the FCC, TabletPCReview has an actual photo of the X200t. The photo shows that the notebook has the familiar look that has been used on ThinkPad's since the IBM days with black, blue, and a red nub for mouse control.

The notebook is expected to have wireless broadband capability and will reportedly feature Wireless USB connectivity to allow wireless connections to peripherals. SlashGear reports that rumors point to the X200t having an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running 1.86GHz, 1GB of RAM, 160GB SATA HDD, and a 12.1-inch 1280 x 800 display.

The notebook is rumored to weigh 4.17 pounds and use an 8-cell battery good for 7 hours of use. Wireless connectivity should include 802.11a/g/n along with Bluetooth. The screen will be a pen-enabled touch screen reports SlashGear.

Earlier this month Lenovo officially announced the 17-inch W700 ThinkPad featuring a built-in Wacom tablet.

"... 1GB of RAM ... ". If Vista is preloaded, I'd imagine 2GB would be nescesary to run well?!

I liked the IBMs, so that Lenovo continues this is good I think. But I hope they made the 'nipple' a little softer, since the original actually hurts a bit when used for an extended period of time.

Who cares about hurting fingers, when it gives no precision control. Why not add a touch-pad? I see no reason not can even keep that nub there, if it is so important, as long as you give me a touchpad!

Why do you need a touchpad when you can use the pen or simply connect the mouse. I hate laptop touchpads myself, always pressing them on accident while typing on the kb.

Have you tried the "no palm touch while typing" feature with which most recent (and not so recent) laptop touchapds are equipped?

I'd say I'm able to use the 'nipple' with the same precision as any touchpad/mouse out there (Ok, gaming needs a real mouse). It's different, yes, but even in Photoshop it's pretty good :)

(That's why I asked for the softer action, 'caus I PS a LOT!)

I find that the cup shaped trackpoint cover is a little easier on the fingertips since you don't have to press down as hard to use it. I can't stand touchpads since they always seem to get a bit sticky unless your hands are completely dry.

I'm sure you can configure it with as much memory as you want - don't worry about the 1GB mentioned. In any case, all Thinkpads have shipped with 3 different trackpoint caps (and you can buy more if you wear them out). The old sandpaper one, the rubber dome, and the indented one.

And when I get a Thinkpad, I turn off the touchpad. With practice, you can do anything you want with the TrackPoint. I use the touchpad to select all of the text I just typed and randomly erase it - so that's why I go in and turn it off.

With the current prices on memory, I'd expect enough (2GB) to run Vista fluent :) But Your right, no BIG deal.

They come with 3 different 'nipple' styles; the rough style, the cup and the textured button (adequate description?) style.

I always laugh when I hear someone complaining about the old rough style 'nipple' when they have a brand new Thinkpad, but mostly because I think IT guys keep the additional nibs for themselves.

That screen looks like it would break off with almost no effort.

No, I haven't. Are they known for being strong?

Not only strong, but their laptops are known for being "built like a tank" rock solid mate, top notch quality.

I thought it looked like gross, smudged, oily, fingerprints.
