Lenovo ThinkPad X250

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 business ultraportable is ready to work hard, with ruggedized construction, a hot-swappable battery, and an Intel Core i5 processor.

Lightweight design. Ruggedized to withstand the rigors of business travel. Hot-swappable battery. Security-compliant storage. Solid performance.

Light on storage.

Conclusion The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is another solid entry in the ThinkPad lineup, and a competent successor to last year's Lenovo ThinkPad X240. The ultraportable design is both lightweight and durable, with classic ThinkPad stylings and a healthy...

Lenovo ThinkPad X250

 

Lenovo's 12.5-inch ThinkPad X250 fits epic battery life, a sharp display and a snappy keyboard into a lightweight, durable package.

Long battery life with extended battery; Comfortable keyboard; Accurate touchpad and pointing stick; Solid performance; Plenty of ports

Bland screen colors; Tinny sound; Middling endurance with default battery

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review – a subtle but solid update

 

The Lenovo X240 's older sibling has arrived, and it is aptly named the Lenovo X250. Many of the previous model's design choices have carried over into the model, but as always the update brings with it, you know, updates for a slightly more modern...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is very similar to the previous X240 model, but it has its improvements and that’s a good thing. You’ll find that the battery life — which was already ample with the X240 — has gotten even better with the X250, and that the...

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Ultrabook Review

 

No (big) experiments. Lenovo only introduces small changes for the latest sibling of the X200-series – but just those changes improve a good subnotebook and result in an even better one. The manufacturer even listened to the criticism about the...

Durable chassis, Crisp keyboard, LTE module can be added, High-contrast Full HD display, Excellent application performance, Low noise and temperature development, 3-year warranty

Only 2x USB, Only up to 8 GB memory, Weak speakers, Mediocre battery runtimes

Lenovo once again only introduces small changes for a successful product – the ThinkPad X250 is a careful evolution of the X240 that was launched in the end of 2013, no more and no less.

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review: The Business Ultrabook

 

ThinkPad's have long been a staple of the on-the-go business user. Does the Lenovo X250 live up to that? Find out in our Lenovo ThinkPad X250 review.

Legacy ports...legacy ports...legacy ports, nice design and sturdy.

A bit on the pricey side that might turn some off and the trackpad needs work.

The X250 is a solid performer and excellent business machine with lightweight handling and slim looks. ThinkPad’s have long been a business user’s go to machine, since the IBM days, and Lenovo aims to continue that tradition. This is a definite machine...

Lenovo ThinkPad X250

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is unsurprisingly the successor to the ThinkPad X240. This is a business Ultrabook with a 12.5" display and it runs on Intel Broadwell 5th generation ULV CPUs with Intel HD 5500 integrated graphics. Unlike many consumer...

Small and light yet durable and plenty of ports. Superb keyboard, good trackpad. Bridge batteries for long runtimes

Higher end display options could have wider color gamut

I've been a fan of the Lenovo ThinkPad X series for many years. This year's refresh with the latest Intel processors and the revised trackpad with hardware buttons keep the X250 fresh and appealing for those who need a durable yet highly portable...

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 review

 

An Ultrabook for business users who need flexibility and longevity

Lightweight design ; Plenty of ports ; Hot-swappable battery

Middle-of-the-pack performance ; Boring design

You'd be better off buying a high-end consumer Ultrabook than purchasing the X250. It doesn't perform exceptionally well and it isn't pretty, but it has lots of ports and a hot-swappable battery.
