Lenovo Thinkpad X240 Review Summary
Lenovo Thinkpad X240 Review - Best Ultrabook for the Road Warrior? - CES 2014

8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 4,358 expert and user reviews for Lenovo notebook PCs and found that on average Lenovo has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Lenovo has good ratings specifically for its laptops.

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo X240 has a front camera, unlike most of the other laptops of this age and spec which do not have a front camera.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a front camera to this notebook PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the HP 15-j151sa[plb_2981268_price], and the Asus PU551LA[plb_2446718_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other notebook PCs which also have a front camera including the DELL Inspiron 15[plb_2145459_price].

SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo X240 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of this spec and age. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium amongst all laptops that came out around the same time as the X240.

Amongst comparable types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.

If you are looking for a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire V3-371[plb_2964527_price] (ssd), or the Lenovo Y70[plb_2964651_price] (ssd) which is also cheaper.
