Chart Edit

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo X250 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X250.

There are a number of alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available which you might want to look at including a cheaper laptop such as the ThinkPad T450[pl_2746927_price], or the ThinkPad W550[pl_2800102_price] both from Lenovo or you might consider a higher rated laptop such as the Fujitsu Lifebook U745[plb_3000568_price].

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo X250 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other portable PCs of a similar type and age to the X250. The maximum turbo frequencies of similar spec notebook PCs that were released one year ago range from 1.8GHz to 3.7GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Portable PCs of this spec and age have processor caches of between 1MB and 6MB, and the average processor cache is 3.1MB. With a processor cache of 4 megabytes, the Lenovo X250 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the X250 the widths range from 28mm to 430mm. With a width of only 305.5 millimeters, the Lenovo X250 is quite narrow compared to most of the other portable PCs that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Very Small Screen Size

The Lenovo X250 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 12.5 inches) amongst comparable spec laptops of this age. The average screen size of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the X250 is 15", and the screen sizes range from 11" to 18".

It may also be worth considering one of the other 12.5" portable PCs currently available including the Lenovo ThinkPad X250[plb_2831096_price], or the DELL Latitude 12 7000[plb_2855917_price] which is cheaper.

Notebook PCs with a bigger screen size that might also be worth considering include the Asus UX301LA[plb_3012166_price] (13.3" and cheaper); or the UX303UB[pl_2993330_price] (13.3" and higher rated), or the UX303LA[pl_3136892_price] (13.3" and higher rated) both from Asus.

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Lenovo X250 does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the X250 also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
