Lenovo hasn't been a player in the Windows tablet game for a while (unless you count the convertible X220), but it seemingly couldn't resist joining in with the never-ending deluge of tablets at Computex Taipei. Intel is showing off the company's prototype tablet, which doesn't have a name yet beyond the ThinkPad branding. It's 9.7mm thin, has a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 screen, and feels pretty light.

Unfortunately we weren't allowed to actually touch the screen once we picked the ThinkPad up, so can't quite comment on the performance — however, the Intel representative demonstrating it for us didn't appear to run into any issues, with the Clover Trail processor seeming to keep up well enough. There's not a lot more to say about the new ThinkPad slate at this point, but for now you can add Lenovo to the ever-growing list of Windows 8 tablet OEMs.
