Review Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook

 

Pioneer. The 12.5-inch ThinkPad of the X series has been completely revamped - while still staying true to the core strengths of its well-made predecessors. Mobility, flexibility, ergonomics and great build quality are characteristics which are not...

Keyboard; Display; Battery life; Power Bridge system; Noise emissions; Mobility

Connectivity; Localized build quality issues; Clickpad buttons; Throttling issues while under full load

That Intel's Haswell CPUs have such an impact on power consumption, making it possible to increase battery life while simultaneously decreasing the battery capacity.

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 review: A no-nonsense business laptop

 

Intel's Haswell CPU comes to the ThinkPad X-series.

Durable glass-fiber chassis ; Hot-swappable battery ; All the I/O ports you could ask for

Disappointing 1366 by 768 display ; Keyboard not up to ThinkPad standard ; Weak speakers

The solidly designed Lenovo X240 Thinkpad features fourth-generation Intel Core processors and hot-swappable batteries. But its display resolution of just 1366 by 768 is disappointing at this price point.

Lenovo ThinkPad X240

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 is a powerful business laptop sporting a Core i5 Haswell CPU, a speedy solid-state drive, and a 12.5-inch IPS touch-screen display. You'll pay top dollar for this well-built ultrabook, but it'll give you over 15 hours of...

Solid performance. Incredible battery life. Responsive touch screen. Sturdy design

Low-resolution display. Pricey

Lenovo ThinkPad laptops have long been a favorite of business users on the go, and for good reason. They have a long history of durability and solid performance, and their keyboards are arguably the best on the planet. The new Lenovo ThinkPad X240 has...

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 review: All-round excellence

 

The ThinkPad X240 offers plentiful configuration options, tried-and-trusted design, solid build quality and a twin battery configuration that delivers long battery life. Overall, this is an excellent business ultrabook.

Tough build ; Plenty of configuration options ; Solid performance ; Integrated mobile broadband option ; Twin battery configuration delivers long battery life

Relatively heavy ; Higher-end configurations are expensive

Businesses need to achieve business resilience in order to adapt and respond rapidly to threats and opportunities. Think of this IBM white paper as a proactive guide to strengthening your business resiliency management program.

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad X240 business laptop doesn't offer much in the way of drastic changes from the previous-generation X230. But that's largely because that laptop, like the earlier X200 models that preceded it, was one of—if not the—best compact...

Sturdy shell ; Excellent keyboard ; Bright IPS display ; Long battery life with extended battery ; Larger wrist rest and touchpad

Low-res display comes standard ; Keys are a bit slippery ; Bottom can get hot under heavy use ; Competing PCs offer longer standard warranty

Long battery life, a bright IPS screen, and one of the best typing experiences available make this the best compact business laptop we’ve tested yet.

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook Review: A Philosophical Shift

 

Alongside our T440s review unit was something slightly smaller and dear to our hearts: the latest entry in the ThinkPad X series of notebooks. Seeing as this very review is being typed on a Lenovo X220, our interest was piqued by the latest refinements...

Lenovo's ThinkPad X240 is a 12.5in Ultrabook that's small and sturdy, yet comfortable to use. Most importantly, it's a very reliable machine, and it has a dual battery system that allows for a very long run time away from an outlet. It's one of the...

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad X240 is a very different beast compared to the X230, but still one of the best small laptops on the market

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 review

 

This 12.5-inch ultrabook packs everything but punch

Tons of ports for size ; Hot swappable batteries ; Great fingerprint reader

Dense for small size ; Easily out specced ; Squishy keyboard ; Poor value

For me, that price is too steep when competitors like the MacBook Air offer all-day endurance in a larger, lighter frame. The ThinkPad X240 is inarguably an impressive display of what's possible in mobile computing today. You'll find few, if any, other...
