x240

If you’re looking for a solid business-focused 12.5-inch Ultrabook, there’s only one choice. The Lenovo X240 comes in the usual wide range of screen resolutions, CPU’s, memory and batteries but the KVM experience, that’s the keyboard, video and mouse, are superb on all versions. I had some hands-on time at IDF this week.

SnapShot

 

The T440s is a business Ultrabook that offers some unique features. The 1920×1080 matt screen with touch is rare, as is the hot-swap battery feature. A 24Wh battery lives in the unit and there’s a selection of 24Wh, 47Wh and 72Wh battery packs that can be added to that. With Haswell and the extended battery you’ve got some very impressive battery life in a 2KG package.

Lenovo launched five new Thinkpads today. We’re taking a closer look at each one in turn. First-up is what we consider to be the one that embraces what we love about Ultrabooks. High mobility, long battery life and lots of technology that helps to ‘get things done.’ The Lenovo Thinkpad X240 will replace the X230 and offer Ultrabook builds on the 15W TDP Haswell processors.

Thinkpad Edge E130 Misses Ultrabook Category by 5mm But Offers A Nice Trade-Off

Lenovo E130

In a search for Core 2nd and 3rd Generation Laptop under 2.5KG with hybrid HDD or SSD (that pretty much summarizes the Ultrabook category these days) I was interested to see the Lenovo Thinkpad E130 show up as the cheapest Ivy Bridge option on the market. €541. I had to double check but sure enough, there’s a hybrid SSD inside which shows what effect the Ultrabook is having on the mainstream laptop market. Why isn’t it an Ultrabook? It’s 23mm thick, 5mm over the maximum thickness for an Ultrabook. There’s a good reason for that and it might just be what you’re looking for.

The setup being tested here comes with Win 7 Pro a fingerprint reader and has a list price of €2276 although it’s available for around 1800-1900 Euros on the ‘street.’

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Launched. Details and Specifications.

The X1 is probably the most referenced laptop by commenters on Ultrabook News so I’m sure many of you will be excited to know that it’s being updated and will be offered, alongside the original X1, as the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon. This isn’t just an Ivy Bridge CPU/GPU update, it’s a full re-work that brings it down to under 3lbs in weight. That’s about 1.35 KG, for a 14” Ultrabook.
