10 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on portable PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Has Good Laptop Reviews

Medium processor core notebook PCs manufactured by Lenovo have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo X250 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most similar spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most similar spec portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all notebook PCs of this age and spec ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo X250 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to 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.

This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all notebook PCs of this age and spec.

The worst storage medium across comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Lenovo L450[plb_2800034_price], or the Toshiba Z40[plb_2984397_price].

Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might be worth looking at include the LG 13Z940[plb_2362386_price] (SSD), or the HP EliteBook 840[plb_2823389_price] (SSD).

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo X250 has a full-size keyboard. Most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age also have a full-size keyboard.

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the X250[pl_2928644_price], or the E550[pl_2965755_price] both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion 17[plb_2725280_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo X250 has a front camera. Most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for more than a year also have a front camera.

Other laptops which also have a front camera that you might also want to consider include the X250[pl_2928644_price], or the E550[pl_2965755_price] both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion 17[plb_2725280_price].

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Quite Small Screen Size

Medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the X250 have screen sizes of between 11" and 18", and the average screen size is 15". The Lenovo X250 has a very small screen size (only 12.5 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the X250.

There are a number of other 12.5" laptops currently available which you might also want to consider including the X250[pl_2979047_price], or the ThinkPad X240[pl_2781602_price] both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 12 E5250[plb_2697619_price] which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core notebook PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo E31-70[plb_3305792_price] (13.3" and cheaper), or the Toshiba Z40[plb_2984397_price] (14" and cheaper); or the DELL Latitude 14 E7450[plb_2979416_price] (14" and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The Lenovo X250 has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type. The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the X250 is 16GB and the biggest is 2TB.

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire E5-571[plb_3002200_price] (500GB and cheaper); or the DELL Latitude 14 E7450[plb_2979416_price] (500GB and higher rated), or the Toshiba A50[plb_2984407_price] (500GB and higher rated).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Like most of the other laptops of this age and type, the Lenovo X250 does not have a touch sensitive screen.

We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops with a touch sensitive screen and we think the HP ProBook 11[plb_2837133_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory (64-Bit)

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo X250 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year.

We compared this laptop to all the other 2.2GHz processor clock speed laptops and we think the DELL Latitude 14 3450[plb_2875930_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP ZBook 14 G2[plb_3017136_price] (2.4GHz and cheaper), or the Lenovo Z51-70[plb_3375574_price] (2.4GHz and cheaper); or the DELL Latitude 14 E7450[plb_2979416_price] (2.3GHz and higher rated).
