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

10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Ultrabooks manufactured by Lenovo have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just ultrabooks) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The ThinkPad X240 has a full-size keyboard, which is unusual. Most of the other ultrabooks that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the XPS 13[pl_2014592_price], or the Latitude 14 E7440[pl_2084702_price] both from DELL or the Lenovo T440s DOS CH[plb_2061457_price].

Has a Front Camera

The ThinkPad X240 has a front camera. Most of the other ultrabooks that have been on the market for more than two years also have a front camera.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2405443_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a front camera and we think the X240[pl_2055134_price], or the X240[pl_2113564_price] both from Lenovo is also worth considering.
