64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Has Good Laptop Reviews

Lenovo has good average reviews for its medium processor core laptops as well as across its entire portable PC range compared to other manufacturers.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo X250 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as it. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the X250 the best memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo X250 has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the X250.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops with a front camera and we think the Latitude 14 E5450 ($600.00), or the Latitude 12 7000 ($594.99) both from DELL or the HP ProBook 640 is also worth considering.

L3 Processor Cache

This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many portable PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many similar spec laptops that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest laptop of a comparable spec and age to the X250 is 940g heavy and the heaviest is 3.8kg. At only 1.4 kilograms, the Lenovo X250 is quite light compared to most of the other laptops that were launched around the same time as the X250.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1.4kg heavy portable PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the X250, or the X250 ($1,250.00) both from Lenovo.

If you are not bothered about having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 (1.4kg).

Narrow

The Lenovo X250 is one of the narrower comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the X250 (only 305.5 millimeters) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. The widths of similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the X250 range from 210mm to 430mm, and the average width is 360mm.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo X250 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the X250 do have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the Latitude 14 E5450 ($600.00), or the Latitude 12 7000 ($594.99) both from DELL or the HP ProBook 640 is also worth considering.

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of laptops of this type and age range from 10" to 18". The Lenovo X250 has a quite small screen size (only 12.5 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released one year ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 12.5" portable PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo X250, or the HP EliteBook 820.

If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Asus UX301LA (13.3" and cheaper), or the Lenovo T450 (14" and cheaper); or the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 (14" and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This laptop has a Hybrid-HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core laptops that came out more than a year ago. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

Chart Edit

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Most laptops that came out around the same time as the X250 do not have a touch sensitive screen. The Lenovo X250 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Latitude 12 7000 ($594.99), or the Latitude 14 3000 ($599.99) both from DELL or the Lenovo Flex 2 15.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Three Battery Cells

The Lenovo X250 is a three battery cell count notebook PC. Most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to the X250 have between two and eight battery cells.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed

With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Lenovo X250 has one of the slower hard drive speeds amongst laptops of this age. Across all the medium processor core laptops that have been available for around the same time as the X250 the hard drive speeds range from 4,200 RPM to 7,200 RPM.

Chart Edit

Only 4 Bluetooth Version

This portable PC supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many similar spec laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo X250

Released Over a Year Ago

This notebook PC has been on the market for over a year.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.3 gigahertz, the Lenovo X250 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs that are a similar age to the X250.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2.3GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 or you might consider a higher scoring laptop such as the DELL Latitude 14 E7450.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP ZBook 14 G2 ($899.99) (2.4GHz), the Lenovo L540 (2.6GHz), or the Toshiba A50 (2.7GHz).

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo X250 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released more than a year ago.

We compared this laptop to all the other 8GB internal memory laptops and we think the X250, and the ThinkPad E550 both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion 17 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Intel Core I5-5xxx Processor Family

This portable PC has an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family, which is typical of many notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo X250 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 500GB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think the ProBook 450, and the ProBook 430 ($484.06) both from HP which is cheaper; or the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Notebook PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the HP Pavilion 14-ab166us ($624.99) (1TB and cheaper).
