The average weight of notebook PCs of this spec and age is 2kg. At only 1.4 kilograms, the Lenovo X240 is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the X240.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 1.4kg heavy notebook PCs and we think the Lenovo X250[plb_2928645_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z40[plb_2891833_price] (1.5kg and cheaper).

Notebook PCs with a bigger screen size that might also be worth looking at include the Asus UX303UB[plb_2993330_price] (13.3" and higher rated), or the Toshiba Z30[plb_2984377_price] (13.3" and higher rated) or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745[plb_2939901_price] (14" and cheaper).

4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo X240

Average Internal Memory

The Lenovo X240 has a pretty typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago.

We compared all the other 8GB internal memory notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo X250[plb_2928645_price], and the Toshiba Tecra Z40[plb_2891833_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Fujitsu Lifebook U745[plb_2939901_price] (12GB), or the Lenovo T450s[plb_3046986_price] (12GB) which is also cheaper.

Average Battery Life

At 8.7 hours, the Lenovo X240 has a fairly standard battery life compared to most of the other laptops that were launched more than a year ago.

If this laptop battery life is too short for you then you might want to consider the Toshiba Z40[plb_2984386_price] (9h), the Fujitsu Lifebook U745[plb_2939901_price] (9.3h), or the Lenovo T450[plb_2954085_price] (10.08h) which is also cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo X240 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
