7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Lenovo has good average reviews for its medium processor cores portable PCs as well as across its entire laptop range.

SSD Storage Media

This portable PC has an SSD storage media, whereas most comparable spec laptops that have been around for a similar time to it have an HDD storage media. 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 media is actually the best storage medium across all medium processor cores portable PCs that are a comparable age to the X240.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage medium across similar types of laptop.
