Lenovo ThinkPad X270


The X270 is a compact, though chunky, take on the ThinkPad with a deceptive amount of power. Add to that a full port loadout and a swappable battery, and this Lenovo laptop will work through the day and into the night.

Insane 24-hour battery life with hot swap system. Powerful processor and 16GB of RAM. Plenty of ports and useful extras. Multiple security features.

Expensive as configured. Bulky for an ultraportable.

When fully outfitted like our test unit, the X270 is a reliable workhorse for business use, small enough to take with you and packed with enough security features to give you peace of mind. It's expensive as configured, though, and a bit too bulky to...

Lenovo ThinkPad X270 Review


Lenovo's class-topping 12.5-inch ultraportable continues to be one of our favorites. Take a closer look at why this travel-friendly business notebook sits at the head of the class.

Incredible battery life (with extended 6-cell) ; Swappable components, and snap-in docking support ; Excellent keyboard ; Beautiful 1080p display

Pricey as tested ; Thicker than average

Lenovo ThinkPad X270 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review


A fiery temper within a compact design. If the largest PC manufacturer had it their way, the Lenovo X270 would become the ultimate mobile companion. In our detailed review, you will find out why there might be better alternatives after all, and why...

comfortable ThinkPad input devices ; compact and nice to handle ; flexible battery usage thanks to PowerBridge ; high number of ports for a compact laptop

some weaknesses in manufacturing ; device heats up under load ; cooling fan runs too frequently ; darker display than that of predecessor ; low color space coverage ; difficult maintenance ; disappointing battery life

This is the fourth time Lenovo has reused the same case. As always with ThinkPads, the great input devices, as well as the PowerBridge feature – which basically has not real competitors - are definite pros. Considering its size, the X270 has a lot of...

Lenovo ThinkPad X270 review: A compact, powerful business laptop


The Lenovo ThinkPad X270 laptop is just what you would expect from a business oriented laptop, lightweight and powerful. Read the full review!

Great Display ; Battery Life ; Finger Print Scanner ; Perfect for business users

Speakers ; Camera

The Lenovo ThinkPad X270 is billed as a business laptop, but of course, can be utilized in the home as well. The CPU on our unit is more than powerful enough for anything you throw at it, just don’t ask the GPU to do any serious gaming. The screen is...
