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 ThinkPad X220

 

Lenovo ThinkPad X220

Classic ThinkPad design in a compact package, amazing battery life, and the latest Intel processors make the ; 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.

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ultraportable Notebook Review

 

Although ThinkPad keyboard's reputation is legendary, in recent years chiclet-style keys have become the norm for some, including myself. I would have also preferred a slightly modified layout (swapping the Fn / Ctrl keys), but I understand this...

Lenovo ThinkPad X220

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 is machine built for the working person. It's all business and no play.

The Thinkpad we tested housed an Intel Core i3-2350M processor with 4 GB of RAM and 320 GB of storage. It's one of the smallest laptops we've tested, with a travel weight of just 63.3 ounces. Everything on the X220 lends itself to efficiency. It takes...
