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

Lenovo crammed a ton of hardware into this business ultrabook, but the ThinkPad X240 comes up short on power versus price.

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...

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

Slim and solid design ; Very good keyboard ; Battery life ; In-built features

Keyboard not backlit by default ; Some keys are smaller compared to the previous model ; Virtual TrackPoint buttons are not comfortable

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 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 12.5-inch IPS touch-screen display, and a whopping 15 hours of battery life.

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

Low-resolution display. Pricey.

Whether you're a long-time ThinkPad enthusiast or a newbie, the X240 is an excellent example of why the brand has been so successful for so many years. Solid performance and a durable design make this ultrabook an ideal travel companion, and its...

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: 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

The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 impresses on every front. The configuration options are plentiful with touchscreen, HDD/SSD, mobile broadband and different Windows versions all in the mix. We like the legacy VGA port, the usable keyboard, the...

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 – Reviews, Specs and Features

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 ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook is what we like to call the miniature version of the ThinkPad T440s. It's very much a similar product in terms of design and features, but in a smaller, 12.5in form factor that's more portable and easier to carry...
