Lenovo has announced an update to it’s 12-inch ThinkPad series with the X250. The big upgrades include the 5th generation Core processor and return of the track point buttons! We go hands on at CES 2015, so let’s jump right into the juicy details.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is 12.5 inches with a matte display that is great for outdoor visibility, it comes with a resolution of 1366x768p, with the option to bump it up to 1080p. Under the hood, the 5th-generation Intel Core processors come in options up to Core i7, with 8GB of DDR3 RAM and SSD sizes from 128GB to 512GB, as well as a hybrid HDD up to 1TB.
Connectivity includes LTE if you’re in the right region, a full size VGA port which is a huge selling feature for those in business, SD Card Reader (4 in 1), 2X USB 3.0 and mDP.
The camera also offers 720p quality. But let’s jump into m favorite part. The reason I was such a huge fan of my X205 was its stellar battery life, you can get 20 hours out of the 6 cell 72Wh battery. There is the option for a bigger battery on this laptop, which pushes capacity closer to 96Wh. The standard edition weights in at 1.3Kg and is 20.3 mm thin which isn’t great, but this is a ruggedest beast that will last you years.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 will cost you $1149 for the basic configuration and will be available in February. So… who’s buying?
