Lenovo ThinkPad X220: A Best-of-Breed Ultraportable


The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 ultraportable laptop, which replaces the X201, is sure to be a hit with ThinkPad fans--as well as most everyone else. It's fast and light, it has a great 12.5-inch display, and it continues the company's tradition of superb...

Lightweight, with great battery endurance and options ; Excellent performance and ergonomics

Comes overloaded with background apps

Fast and light, with great input ergonomics and battery life, this powerhouse ultraportable is best-of-breed, though its old-school looks may not appeal to everyone.

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 review


Lenovo's X-series laptops have always been high-end ultraportable machines for business travelers who need to work on the go with a minimum amount of compromise. The X220 continues this tradition and adds a few new twists at the same time. The biggest...

Classic ThinkPad design in a compact package, amazing battery life, and the latest Intel processors make the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 a standout travel laptop.

The touch-pad-pointing-stick combo remains an awkward compromise, and as with most ThinkPads you're paying a hefty premium for the sturdy case and business-friendly software.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 packs in a new Intel Core i5 CPU and can run all day (depending on how you use it). With a 12.5-inch display, it's just a bit smaller than a 13-inch laptop, and it feels like an excellent compromise for frequent travelers.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X220


Ultralights aren't for everyone, but with the ThinkPad X220, Lenovo sure is doing its best to make the case that they can be.

Insane battery life flirts with five long hours. Blazing performance outdoes your kid’s gaming laptop. Super-lightweight, but solidly built. Milspec tested (though not yet certified)

Half-baked touchpad design. Please, Lenovo, please swap the Fn and Ctrl keys once and for all

Lenovo ThinkPad X220


The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 laptop is an amazing piece of engineering when you factor in all the features it squeezed into a 12-inch frame, including best-in-class battery life and the new Intel Core i5 i5-2520M CPU.

Phenomenal typing experience. Improved keyboard. Larger 12.5-inch widescreen. Durable. DisplayPort and HD Webcam are new to the family. Excellent battery life. Best in class performance. Dual pointing devices.

New touchpad design is a one-finger-at-a-time navigating tool. Unexciting color.
