Superbly portable with innovative battery technology and has great build quality, though we wouldn’t expect less from Lenovo. This X260 laptop however, has a newer generation of i5 processor, twice the amount of RAM and a fast SSD already installed. This really sets it apart from the X250.

Maufacturer Description
Thin and light.
Weighing in at less than 1.3 kg and measuring 20.3 mm at its thickest point, the X260 is ultraportable, without sacrificing anything in terms of ports, connectivity, or durability.
Award-Winning Keyboard
Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device.
And it's optimised for Windows 10 and later versions with convenient multimedia buttons. LED status indicators for camera, speaker, microphone, Fn Lock, and Caps Lock make working in dark environments effortless.
Intel® vPro Technology
Makes enterprise-level manageability even more convenient and cost-saving. Manage, protect, repair, or locate your deployed laptops from anywhere in the world.
Power Bridge Technology
Combining an internal battery with an external hot-swappable battery, Power Bridge provides flexibility and maximum battery life.
Swap batteries without powering down your laptop, using an extra travel battery to increase your time between charges to 21 hours (from new, actual performance will be less).
Additional Ports
The X260 laptop features an added HDMI port to make it easy to attach external displays for presentations. Along with an additional USB port, this means connectivity and information sharing have never been easier. 
Tested to Military Specifications
Military-specification testing validates the ruggedness, durability, and quality of this laptop by testing against 11 parameters: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, solar radiation, fungus, salt fog, and dust.

Our Specialist view of the Lenovo ThinkPad X260 laptop

The Spec:

The refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad X260 has the following spec: a newer 6th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of faster DDR4 RAM and a fast 256GB Solid State Drive. Not forgetting built-in WiFi, a webcam, card reader, a HDMI port and Windows 10 Pro preloaded all brought together with a 12.5” HD screen.

The Good Bits:

We feel it’s important to point out again that Lenovo really haven’t changed much at all from the ThinkPad X240 to the X250 and now to the X260. It still superbly portable with innovative battery technology and has great build quality, though we wouldn’t expect less from Lenovo. This X260 however, has a newer generation of i5 processor, twice the amount of RAM and a fast SSD already installed. This really sets it apart from the X250.

The Not So Good Bits:

Ultimately it’s still only a 12.5” laptop with a combined 6 cell battery. Despite it been far newer than the X240 and X250, and offering a far better spec, it won’t be ideal for someone looking to create large documents or do any sort of design work unless of course you make use of the Mini DisplayPort or HDMI port to connect to an external display.

The Design:

See our ThinkPad X250 review, Lenovo essentially did a copy and paste here. We do however like the addition of a HDMI port and extra USB 3.0 port. A Big thumbs up to Lenovo, who have kept the excellent keyboard and touchpad.


It’s beefed up quite considerably with a newer processor, more RAM and a faster hard drive so we would feel confident recommending this to almost any business professional working on the road or perhaps hot desking in an office.
