Our Specialist view of the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 laptop

The Spec:

The refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad X240 specs look like this: An Intel Core i5 dual core processor with 4GB DDR3 RAM, which can be upgraded to 8GB and a 500GB mechanical hard drive. A webcam and WiFi is standard plus a wired LAN internet connection for use in the office, at home or at school. The hard drive has Windows 10 Professional preloaded.

The Good Bits:

Lenovo X240’s are a good balance of portability, usability and expandability. We really like that it’s light and can easily be carried around. It’s also supported by a solid spec and with some tech improvements from the X230. USB 3.0 is another solid additional which offers faster data transfer rates. Battery life is always a concern for any laptop, less so for the X240. Lenovo have installed 2 batteries in the X240, an internal and external, Power Bridge Technology, giving the end user an increased battery life.

The Not So Good Bits:

The spec is solid if not spectacular. It does have Windows 10 Professional preinstalled but the rest of the spec doesn’t scream high performance. The build quality is what sets it apart from a lot of other similar spec laptops and you can always upgrade the RAM and stick a faster SSD in. We have actually done this on other X240’s we have in stock so you can click the link if you are after a refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad X240 with Windows 10 Pro with more RAM and an SSD.

The Design:

We don’t get a cry of ultra modern design with sweeping lines and a narrow bezel display but what is obvious is that this laptop is designed with some serious use in mind. It’s a take anywhere, do almost anything design with an excellent standard keyboard and plenty of expandability options.

Suitability:

Improved from the Windows 7 version, this X240 can be used by professionals and students of almost any type and is still just as suitable as a back up or a workstation.
