The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 is the direct successor to lớn the ThinkPad X230, offering a wealth of exciting novelties. While the ThinkPad X230 looked pretty much the same as the ThinkPad X2trăng tròn, the ThinkPad X240 comes with a completely redesigned chassis - a move sầu which we have already noted in case of the ThinkPad T440s and with several variants of the S series. Thanks khổng lồ the highly efficient Hãng sản xuất Intel Haswell CPU, affordable solid state drives và new battery designs, much slimmer cases are possible than before, leading khổng lồ a welcome improvement in terms of mobility. Our kiểm tra device can finally Điện thoại tư vấn itself an ultrabook, shipping with the prestigious moniker.

Prices start at 850 euros for the variant with an Hãng sản xuất Intel Vi xử lý Core i3 CPU & a TN display (20AL0081GE), going up to lớn almost 1900 euros for the variant with a touch display and an Hãng sản xuất Intel Core i7 CPU (20AL0076GE). Our test device is called 20AL007NGE. It ships with an Intel Core i7-4600U-CPU, Hãng sản xuất Intel HD Graphics 4400, 8 GB of RAM, a 256 GB SSD, WWAN và the HD IPS display without touch, costing a decidedly premium 1800 euros.

The most obvious innovation shows itself when taking a look at the dimensions. 6 millimeters less (in terms of height) when compared khổng lồ the ThinkPad X230 (measured without the rubber feet) looks a lot slimmer. Instead of a wedge-like shape, an overall flat kiến thiết language has been implemented, yielding a more streamlined and more modern look. Still, the typical ThinkPad design has been retained, fostering Lenovo"s still-excellent brvà recognition. Even the clamshell thiết kế of the display lid is still there, at least to some degree. Our thử nghiệm device comes in at 1450 grams, weighing exactly 100 grams less than its predecessor. Then again, the battery capacity has been reduced from 62 Wh (X230i) khổng lồ approximately 47 Wh, 15 Wh less.

The build unique of the chassis is still quite good, coming cthua kém lớn the ThinkPad X230 in terms of sturdiness. Both the palm rest và the keyboard dechồng barely exhibit any give at all, the display hinges work flawlessly và the display almost can"t be twisted. Despite of all these great aspects, most well-known weaknesses of the predecessor haven"t been removed. Even slight pressure on the palm rest is enough to compress the smart card reader slot. Similarly, the areas between the display hinges both on the display frame và above sầu the battery can easily be distorted. Although this shouldn"t be too much of an issue in most real-life usage scenarquả táo, one might rightly expect more from a premium máy vi tính.



Less is more? This seems to have sầu been Lenovo"s motto when it cut some of the ThinkPad"s ports such as the ExpressCard/32 slot and the USB 2.0 port with charging capability. 2 x USB 3.0 (the right one comes with charging capability), đồ họa, Mini DisplayPort, Gigabit LAN, a combined Line In/Out port and a card reader remain. More ports can (only) be had during stationary usage with the help of a docking station. Unfortunately, the ones of its predecessors aren"t compatible any more since the proprietary connector has been slimmed down as well. The thẻ reader manages to lớn reach read and writes speeds of up khổng lồ 72.8 MB/s & 23.9 MB/s, respectively (using a 64 GB SDXC thẻ made by Transcend).

The positioning of the ports follows some sensible design decisions, at least on the right hand side. Here, no cable connectors should be able to bloông chồng each other. Thinks look differently on the left hvà side - due to lớn the fan vents, most ports are located cđại bại khổng lồ the front as well as close khổng lồ each other. A flash drive, for example, might be enough lớn bloông xã the Smart Card reader as well as making it hard lớn connect a Mini DisplayPort cable unless a standard USB cable is used instead of the flash drive. More so, the cables are too cchiến bại to lớn the front, being in the way while working, almost forcing owners of a ThinkPad X240 lớn use a docking solution for stationary operation scenargame ios.

Communication

In terms of communication standards, there is not much left to lớn be desired. Intel"s Wireless-AC 7260 already supports the fast 802.11ac standard, making it well-equipped for fast wireless networks. With its two antennas, it is capable of using both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz b&, reaching up to lớn 867 Mbit/s. The device lives up khổng lồ these expectations during real-life usage, yielding good connection speeds without any major issues or even breakups.

For short distances, Bluetooth 4.0 is still on board - quite useful when one is trying to lớn connect smartphones, keyboards or mice. Our ThinkPad X240 also comes with a M.2 standard HSPA+ module (including GPS) made by Ericsson. Although we didn"t chạy thử this, it should be possible lớn insert a solid state drive instead. According lớn Lenovo"s claims, the 720p webcam is supposedly quite good under low-lighting conditions, but we can"t confirm this statement: It should be enough for well-lit đoạn phim conferences, but no more.

Security

The ThinkPad X240 comes with a Trusted Platkhung Module 1.2, a Smart Card reader, a fingerprint reader & the usual password options, yielding a good basic array of security options when it comes khổng lồ preventing data theft. In addition, Intel"s AMT (long-distance maintenance, repairs and surveillance for security purposes) or AT (anti-theft) technologies can be used, further improving upon the range of security utilities. Lenovo"s "Airbag" is an optional active sầu HDD safety feature, preventing HDDs from taking damage from impacts (of course, this isn"t necessary for SSDs), as is the Kensington lochồng connector for which a lochồng can be purchased separately.

Accessories

As usual, a lot of optional accessories can be purchased at Lenovo"s store, ranging from larger batteries with 48 Wh or 72 Wh lớn new docking stations. While the latter - the "Thinkpad Pro Dock" (30A10065EU) which may very well be a must for stationary usage scenartiện ích ios, due to the low amount of ports - is rather expensive, costing 150 euros, the largest battery - the 72 Wh one (0C52862, 68+) - can be had for as little as 70 euros.

Maintenance

The hard drive cất cánh isn"t accessible any more, requiring removal of the entire bottom panel. After the loosening of 8 screws và leveraging of the panel, it can be lifted up. A guide (including information which steps the user is allowed khổng lồ take) can be found in Lenovo"s Hardware Maintenance Manual, as is almost always the case with Lenovo. A number of slots (Wi-Fi, M.2), the drive sầu bay, the fan system and one memory bank can be found below this maintenance hatch. Unfortunately, this is indeed the only RAM slot on board, being occupied by one 8 GB module - neither soldered-on RAM nor a second bank are available.

Warranty

As usual, Lenovo offers 36 months of warranty for the ThinkPad X240. Warranty extensions - both in terms of quality and quantity - shall become available shortly. At the time of this writing, no such extensions could be found online for the ThinkPad X240.


Keyboard

Already the ThinkPad X230 shipped with the new, well-made chiclet design. The X240 uses basically the same keyboard. We were quite impressed by its performance: The keyboard dochồng doesn"t wobble, the keys offer medium travel, come with a great pressure point and remain rather silent. Prolific writers should easily become accustomed to lớn this keyboard, having no problems typing even long texts. Those who aren"t used khổng lồ ThinkPads will take a bit more time due to lớn the slightly unusual keyboard layout, especially concerning "Fn", "Ctrl" and "Print". The audio controls buttons (which used lớn be placed in an extra row for the ThinkPad X230) are now implemented into lớn the regular keyboard layout. The ThinkLight keyboard illumination system has been removed (as was to lớn be expected), leaving just the keyboard backlighting system with the same old two brightness levels.

Touchpad

While the ThinkPad X2trăng tròn / X230 did commence the move sầu towards a 5-button clickpad with integrated touchpad và trackpoint buttons, this development is now complete. No separate keys remain: The touchpad buttons are located at the lower over of the touchpad while the trackpoint buttons are integrated inlớn the top. As had already been the case with the ThinkPad S series và the T440s, the new version is not quite there (yet), especially in terms of its somewhat less than perfect feedbaông xã & reliability. It took quite some time to get accustomed lớn the new version and even then did we still miss the separate buttons due khổng lồ their high comfort. Still, gliding over the surface feels great, multitouch gestures work well, as vì chưng clicks on the pad measuring 87 x 73 milimet. Up khổng lồ four fingers can be recognized at the same time. Additionally, Synaptic"s driver software is quite powerful, allowing for almost all functions to lớn be activated or deactivated independently from each other.
