From the unboxing through the test drive and beyond, there is no doubt about it. This thin, light (2.84 lb.), durable ultrabook is perfect for the mobile business user.
After I received X240s from Lenovo for testing, I updated its Windows 8 Pro to 8.1 in order to make it more user friendly. A full charge of the battery gave me 7 hours of battery life. The X240s review unit featured the substantial ThinkPad “Chiclet” keyboard with great key travel.
The trackpad was buttonless “multi-touch” which some diehard TP fans might not like, but with practice I was able to adapt.
As far as other specs, the unit that I tested had a 500GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm, 2.5″; 4th Gen Intel Core i7-4300U Processor (3MB Cache, up to 2.90GHz); 12.5” Anti-glare Touch(1366 X 768) LED Backlit display- good for a mobile device; 7 hr. (2 internal batteries); microphone; stereo speakers: Dolby® Home Theater®
Ports: 2 USB 3.0, miniDisplayPort w/ audio, SD card reader (card inserts completely), full size VGA and Ethernet; security slot; UltraNav TrackPoint; Fingerprint Reader; Intel Single Band Wireless 7260BN with Bluetooth 4.0.
The solid performance and durable design of this ultrabook make this ThinkPad model an ideal choice for a power user or business traveler.
