Lenovo ultrabooks have good ratings on average and across all portable PCs Lenovo is one of the superior manufacturers.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other ultrabooks that have been around for a similar time to the x1, the Lenovo x1 has a front camera.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo x1 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. Most ultrabooks that have been available for a similar time to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all ultrabooks that were launched around the same time as the x1.
Amongst comparable types of portable PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
This laptop has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on portable PCs of a comparable age and type to it. 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.
If the storage medium of this ultrabook is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (SSD), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon (SSD).
