The editors didn't like

  • The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 suffers from poor touchpad design
  • And the positioning of “Fn” and “Ctrl” key still is a problem
  • Review
  • If there’s one thing that we’ve learnt after reviewing so many ultralight laptops
  • It’s that the ultralight laptops certainly aren’t the machines that will please everyone. But the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 comes to us as a shocker
  • And we are more than happy to see
  • Washed-out
  • Flaky webcam
  • Short palm rest
  • Poor palm rejection
  • Bottom Got Quite Warm During Heavy Use
  • No Bluetooth
  • New touchpad design is a one-finger-at-a-time navigating tool. Unexciting color.
  • Comes overloaded with background apps
  • Buttonless touchpad may bother some users
  • No docking station pass through on the optional slice battery
  • No dedicated graphics option
  • The touch-pad-pointing-stick combo remains an awkward compromise
  • And as with most ThinkPads you're paying a hefty premium for the sturdy case and business-friendly software
  • Clickpad can be a bit wonky Design may feel outdated to some Can get pricey with configuration options
  • Halfbaked touchpad design. Please
  • Lenovo
  • Please swap the Fn and Ctrl keys once and for all
  • A bit pricey
  • Weak speakers
  • USB 3.0 is only available with the Core i7
  • Positioning of the ports
  • VGA signal quality
  • Case quality up close
  • CPU throttling in a variety of situations

  • Lenovo brought a lot to the table with the ThinkPad X220 and they impressed us in almost every category. Starting with storage performance, it offers SATA 6.0Gb/s speeds for drives capable as well as an mSATA slot for drives like the Intel SSD 310. No...

  • Abstract:  Lenovo ThinkPad X220 has a 12.5 inch screen and it is smaller than a 13 inch notebook but still bigger than a 11 inch system. The resolution of 1,366×768 pixels was expected on this screen size and it is the same that you get on all 11 to 13 inch lapto...

  • The Lenovo ThinkPad X220 may not be perfect, but it is a well-designed laptop with the typical ThinkPad "flair". The notebook offers good mobility and the latest hardware - a combination hard to resist. So we can safely say that the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 i...

  • ThinkPad users won't find anything mind-blowingly different about this latest addition to the X2xx series, but the improvements are noticeable and all enhance the usability of the unit. If you're not looking for a laptop that is super-sexy or trying t...

  • Extremely comfortable keyboard Superb battery life Great performance
  • Clickpad can be a bit wonky Design may feel outdated to some Can get pricey with configuration options
  • It's true, from afar the X220 could be mistaken as a five year old laptop -- one that couldn't last longer than four hours on a charge, and would be considered sluggish by today's standards (most likely because it would have been running Vista!). But in f...
