Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 290MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the ThinkPad X240 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the ThinkPad X240 range from 11" to 18". When compared to other laptops that are a comparable age to the ThinkPad X240 that we have checked, the screen size of the ThinkPad X240 of only 12.5 inches is one of the smallest.

Other 12.5" portable PCs currently available which you might want to look at include the DELL Latitude 12 E5250[plb_2697619_price] which is cheaper.

If this laptop screen size is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProBook 430[plb_2783766_price] (13.3"), the Acer Aspire V3-331[plb_2917776_price] (13.3"), or the Lenovo E31-70[plb_3305792_price] (13.3") which is also cheaper.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo E31-70[plb_3305792_price] (1.9GHz and cheaper); or the DELL Inspiron 14 3440[plb_3015996_price] (1.9GHz and higher rated).
