Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ultraportable Review

Living up to its reputation, we've generally been pleased with Lenovo's overall build quality and performance. The thin and light IdeaPad U260 released earlier this year was a real work of art and excelled in nearly every category except for one -- it narrowly missed Intel's Sandy Bridge processor refresh which would have offered even better all-around CPU and GPU performance.

The ThinkPad X220 was just recently introduced and represents Lenovo's refresh to the ThinkPad X series using Intel's second generation Core processors. Feature highlights include a 12.5" 1366x768 IPS display, a solidly built thin frame and starting weight of 3 pounds, all without sacrificing on performance.

The ThinkPad X220 is available in various configurations, from the Core i3-2310M all the way up to the high-end i7-2620M (the series fastest dual-core mobile processor). The X220 also includes a full-size keyboard and an all-new oversized touchpad with integrated mouse-click buttons.

Laptops are real tools. Priorities are reliability and functionality. Appearance is irrelevant.

I would like to see the screen resolution nearer to 1680x1050 and they continue to reverse the Fn / Ctrl keys.

I don't like it... I wouldn't say it's ugly, but unpleasant at least. I find its external design rather dated.
Nah...it's ugly

Thats what makes it so good. Its so ugly that no body wants to use it (or steal it) making it a disguised ultraportable monster machine.

The same way I find Macbook ugly. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholders...

The same way I find Macbook ugly. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholders. I'm not creative enough to come up with a real comment.
