14 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many portable PCs that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Lenovo medium processor core notebook PCs have good ratings on average and across all notebook PCs Lenovo is one of the better rated brands.

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

The ThinkPad X240 has a better processor family than most medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it. This notebook PC has an Intel Core i7 processor family, whereas most portable PCs of a comparable age and type to it have an Intel Core i5 processor family. Across all notebook PCs that are a similar age to the ThinkPad X240 the best processor family is Intel Core i7-3xxx and the worst is AMD C.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The ThinkPad X240 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most laptops of this age and type. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all notebook PCs of this type and age.

Amongst similar types of portable PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The ThinkPad X240 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The internal memory of laptops that have been on the market for more than two years range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5.3GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 8GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including a cheaper notebook PC such as the Acer Aspire V3 or you might consider a higher rated notebook PC such as the Lenovo Z51 (£421.00).

SSD Storage Medium

The ThinkPad X240 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the ThinkPad X240.

Across similar types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think the XPS 13 (£792.00), and the XPS 13 (£792.00) both from DELL or the HP EliteBook 820 (£599.99) which is cheaper; or the XPS 13, and the XPS 13 both from DELL which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The ThinkPad X240 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ThinkPad X240.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the T440p (£789.19), or the ThinkPad T440 both from Lenovo or the DELL Inspiron 15 7000.

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the ThinkPad X240 also have a front camera.

We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a front camera including the UX301LA, or the UX301LA (£799.99) both from Asus or the Lenovo ThinkPad T440.

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

Unlike most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the ThinkPad X240 which do not have a touch sensitive screen, the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 has a touch sensitive screen.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen to this portable PC and we think the UX301LA (£799.99), the Zenbook UX301LA (£799.99), or the UX301LA all from Asus is also worth considering.

The weight of the ThinkPad X240 of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest amongst medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the ThinkPad X240.

Laptops with a heavier weight that might be worth considering include the EliteBook 820 (£599.99) (1.3kg), or the EliteBook 820 (1.3kg) both from HP which is also cheaper.

8 Reasons Against

Quite Small Screen Size

Across all the notebook PCs of this type and age the screen sizes range from 10" to 18". With a screen size of only 12.5 inches, the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 has a fairly small screen size compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the ThinkPad X240.

There are a number of alternative 12.5" portable PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including the DELL Latitude 12 5000 (£649.95), the Lenovo X230 (£695.00), or the HP EliteBook 820 which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a laptop with a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Asus Zenbook UX301LA (£799.99) (13.3"), the HP 8470p (£845.00) (14"), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£1,010.39) (14").

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ThinkPad X240 range from 1GB to 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 520GB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst portable PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 256GB total storage capacity notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think the DELL Latitude 12 5000 (£649.95), and the HP EliteBook 820 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this Lenovo portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£710.19) (500GB), or the Lenovo X240 (£699.97) (500GB) which is also cheaper.
