Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review
Quick Review of the Lenovo Thinkpad x250 Running Ubuntu 16 10

18 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on portable PCs that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo laptops and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews compared to other brands.

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the X250 is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz. At 2.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo X250 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the X250.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 2.6GHz processor clock speed portable PCs and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkPad T450, and the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 is also worth considering.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo X250 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops of a comparable age and spec to it. Most notebook PCs of this type and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops of this age and spec is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo X250 has a better storage medium than most portable PCs of a similar age and type to it. This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. 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 across all medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the X250.

Across comparable types of notebook PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper laptops such as the T450, and the T450s both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 12 E7250 is also worth considering.

Laptops with a better storage medium that might be worth looking at include the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (SSD).

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo X250 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the X250.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including the Lenovo T450s which is cheaper; or the Lenovo X240 which has better reviews.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A is also worth considering.
