Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review
The base model of the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 comes with a 12.5-inch touch screen, a Core i3-5010U processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. One can upgrade to a Core i7 if one does prefer the upgrade. One can also get the touch screen version for an extra cost. The ThinkPad X250 has an optional extended battery, which adds 0.4 pounds to the total weight.
The ThinkPad X250 has an integrated magnesium frame, a glass-fiber reinforced plastic chassis, and a proprietary power port. These features combine to create a sturdy chassis that gives the ThinkPad X250 an incredibly lightweight. The ThinkPad X250 has been tested to meet military standards for vibration, humidity, dust, and temperature changes, and it’s hard to imagine a laptop with this light weighing so much.
The ThinkPad X250’s display is small, but it’s adequate for occasional photo editing. Its DeltaE 4.2 colour and DeltaE 3.1 grayscale deviation out of the box is good, and they’re easy to fix with calibration. But beware of X250’s limited colour-space coverage, with only 66% sRGB covered. One may very well want to check with one’s trusted local retailer about Lenovo’s educational program before purchasing one of these amazing machines.
Despite it having a lightweight and thin chassis, the ThinkPad X250 maintains its business-friendly style. It’s thin and light, weighing less than three pounds and measuring just 0.8 inches thick at its thickest point. The ThinkPad X250 also offers full connectivity, optional touch capacity, and a comprehensive set of ports. As a business laptop, it is a fantastic choice for those who need to work on the go.
The keyboard is a comfortable choice for typing. It has a chiclet-style design and an adjustable backlight, as well as a fingerprint reader. One can also upgrade the storage to up to an impressive 512GB using a microSD card. The ThinkPad X250 comes with 4GB or 8GB of RAM. Its ports are limited, but the ThinkPad X250 comes with more than most ultrabooks do. It has two USB 3.0 ports, a Mini DisplayPort, a VGA port for an external display, SD card slots, and a gigabit ethernet port.
While the cooling system on the ThinkPad X250 is generally very quiet, it is still important to take note of its temperature. It can reach temperatures of up to thirty degrees Celsius in the stress test, but it doesn’t significantly affect the user’s comfort. A temperature of 25.4 degrees Celsius on the upper side is normal for a subnotebook. The palm rest and touchpad are cool to the touch. However, a fan may be necessary for some tasks, and one may want to keep that in mind when choosing a laptop. This can also be solved by purchasing a cooling pad when on is buying a refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad X250.
