Lenovo ThinkPad x240 long battery life laptop is the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad laptop we offer. Weighing in at less than 3 lbs and measuring 0.8 inches at its thickest point. It is ultraportable without sacrificing the laptop battery life, ports, connectivity, or durability.
Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. It is optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons, LED status indicators, Function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Moreover it has a large smooth Trackpad with 5-point click integration.
With the Lenovo ThinkPad x240 you can multitask and move effortlessly between applications, collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference . In Addition it has long battery life and can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC is what your users will do with it.
Lenovo ThinkPad x240 makes enterprise level manageability even more convenient and cost-saving. It manages, protects, repairs and can locate a laptop from anywhere in the world.
Lenovo ThinkPad x240 when compared to the ThinkPad X230 looks a lot slimmer. Instead of a wedge-like shape, an overall flat design language has been implemented, yielding a more streamlined and more modern look.
However, the typical ThinkPad design has been retained, fostering Lenovo’s excellent brand recognition. The clamshell design of the display lid is also maintained. Our test device comes in at 1450 grams weighing exactly 100 grams less than its predecessor. Nonetheless, the battery capacity has been reduced from 62 Wh (X230i) to approximately 47 Wh, 15 Wh less.
Less is more? This seems to have been Lenovo ThinkPad x240 motto when it cut some of the ThinkPad’s ports such as the ExpressCard/32 slot and the USB 2.0 port with charging capability. 2 x USB 3.0 (the right one comes with charging capability), VGA, Mini DisplayPort, Gigabit LAN, a combined Line In/Out port and a card reader remain.
More ports can (only) be had during stationary usage with the help of a docking station. Unfortunately, the ones of its predecessors aren’t compatible any more since the proprietary connector has been slimmed down as well. The card reader manages to reach read and writes speeds of up to 72.8 MB/s and 23.9 MB/s, respectively (using a 64 GB SDXC card made by Transcend).
Intel Core i5
The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
