Lizzie asks…IBM Lenovo Tablet PC CPU upgrade possible?I am looking to get an IBM Lenovo Tablet PC, but I want it with a better CPU. Currently it only offers 1.8 GHz and my current laptop has 2.40 GHz which I’d like to maintain. is the notebook possible to upgrade later, possibly even with the cpu of my other notebook?mark answers:Yes, you can upgrade the CPU on the Lenovo tablet. You can change the CPU of pretty much any laptop these days.
If the chipset of the tablet matches the chipset of your current laptop, then chances are, their sockets are the same and you can swap out CPUs (after voiding warranties, of course). Otherwise, you’ll just have to buy a better CPU that uses the same socket as the tablet.
I advise you do not upgrade the CPU on the tablet, however, as you’ll trade off battery life for performance. And if you’re on the go, which you kind of need to be with a tablet PC, that’s not what you want to do.
Hope this helps.Sandy asks…How do you get to the fan in the lenovo x60 tablet pc?i turn my laptop on and it beeps twice and says fan error then turns off, a tech is coming on tues to hopefully fix it but i read somewhere that it could possibly be dust so i just want to try..mark answers:every week or two I use those cans of compressed air to blow out dust from all the cooling ports on my TabletPC.
You would be amazed just how much builds up inside these ports.
Dust may be completely clogging your fan so it’s worth a shot.Charles asks…Is the Lenovo Tablet PC pressure sensitive?as an artist I really want one of these, but like a wacom tablet is it pressure sensitive? or is any tablet pc pressure sensitive for that matter? if that’s the case I can live without the option but I’d just like to know if it’s built in since I’ll be using adobe programs.Also, if you have one (Lenovo) I’d like to know if it’s the high res version or the multitouch screen. I’m really interested in seeing the trade offs of one or the other. They both sound like a nice choice.mark answers:I believe that any Tablet PC that is Wacom Penabled is pressure sensitive. You will most likely have to install the Wacom driver since the Windows drivers don’t seem to work with Adobe. I have a Toshiba R10 and once I installed the Wacom drivers I was able to use pressure sensitivity in Photoshop.Ken asks…Lenovo Thinkpad x220 Tablet pc convertible laptop- does it come with a DVD drive?or do you have to “customize” it (buy it separate) and put it in later?mark answers:Lenovo Thinkpad x220 Tablet pc is an excellent choice.

Any other computer that is lighter ?mark answers:as a TabletPC evangelist I always recommend TPC’s for those looking to go mobile. Although not usually as powerful as full-blown desktop-replacement laptops, the pen & ink features make them so much more usuable, especially as more specialized software comes out that is pen-centric.
Mac Air’s are beautiful
