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.
