Lenovo ThinkPad X250, 12.5-inch laptop with up to 20 hours of use

Lenovo ThinkPad X250

Maximum portability. That's what the  Lenovo ThinkPad X250 offers , a compact 12.5-inch notebook geared towards the professional field. And it is that this model achieves an impressive autonomy of up to 20 hours through a double battery system, a figure that raises it well above what laptops and ultrabooks on the market usually offer. Among the main features of this laptop we find the inclusion of new processors of the fifth generation of Intel Core Broadwell , different storage options in traditional hard disk or SSD or the ability to integrate a Full HD panel with touch capability. The Lenovo ThinkPad X250It should arrive in February at a starting price that could be around 1,150 euros.

Undoubtedly, the great asset of this model lies in the great autonomy it achieves. Up to 20 hours of use thanks to a two battery system. In fact, the larger battery can be removed from the laptop to charge it while we continue to use the equipment with a smaller capacity internal battery. An advantage for mobile professionals who are constantly on the go and who do not want to be waiting for an available outlet. The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is committed to a screen 12.5 inches which may include a standard resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels , or make the leap to a panel Full HD highest quality with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.

In either case, we can integrate a touch panel or a traditional one to deal with the Windows 8.1 operating system . In the guts of the X250 we find a fifth generation Intel Core processor or Intel Broadwell . These chips are designed to improve energy efficiency, one of the reasons why Lenovo has been able to increase the autonomy of this model to the final 20 hours . This chip will be combined with a RAM of a maximum of 8 GB.

In the field of storage, this equipment offers many different configuration options. On the one hand, we have the ability to integrate a traditional 500 GB or 1 TB hard drive . You can also opt for an SSD disk of up to 256 GB , a faster and more reliable format but also more expensive. Finally, there is the intermediate option of a hybrid storage system that combines a small SSD memory for the cache with a traditional 500 GB hard drive. These options are capable of supporting the OPAL standard for data protection.

Within the field of connections, it is surprising to find a VGA port to connect the laptop to a computer (especially due to the size of the equipment). We also have an Ethernet port to surf the web via cable, a mini DisplayPort or an optional smart card reader. And all this with a really light design of 1.3 kilos , a figure that is quite impressive for the autonomy of the model. To find the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 in the market we will have to wait until next February, with a starting price that would be 1,150 euros.
