Lenovo Thinkpad X250: Detailed Review

The Thinkpad X250 is part of Lenovo’s popular Thinkpad X200 series of business notebooks, nay, business ultrabooks. It continues to sport a boxy, squared-off design that hasn’t changed since the inception of X200 lineup. Not one for flashy looks, the ThinkPad X250 continues to have great build quality, as always, thanks largely to its carbon fiber chassis. 

 

The Thinkpad X250's display has a maximum brightness of 172 nits and a matte finish. And it is mounted on a drop-down hinge, which lets the display open up to 180 degrees like the Thinkpad X1 Carbon. The keyboard is a chiclet-style spill proof one just like X240, with good travel and a firm pressure point. Lenovo has at last abandoned its 5-key mouse pad in exchange of a 3-key one which is placed at the upper half of the trackpad. The mousepad although tiny is quite accurate. The X250 is an average performer, good for business processes, and its battery lasted 3 hours 12 minutes in our benchmark test – expect about 4-5 hours of real-life backup. 

This Thinkpad X250 has accommodated a 4G LTE module too for added productivity on the go. Considering these features we deem the Thinkpad X250 as a worthy successor to the X240 and if you are inclining towards a well-rounded business machine with high portability and neat build quality, then consider getting your hands on the Lenovo Thinkpad X250.

      I had a ThinkPad R60 before my current laptop. And one thing I'll tell you about them. You can use them as a shield against a missile. :D Seriously, they are quite well built, and can easily take your daily abuse. In the whole 5 years, I threw it around a couple of times when I was angry, kept it turned on for months (yes, months, 24x7...

      If you want better graphic experience among the two, go for ideapad. Thinkpads are robust and business oriented.

    3. Infra_red_dude16/08/2007
      ^^^ very much possible. people should be convinced that all the hardware will work in vista and haf less compatibility (one way to ensure this is to bring out newer versions) whatever it is, lets wait till sp1. vista is still away from the maturity XP had when launched (probably coz underneath it was the tried and tested Win2K)
