Lenovo Thinkpad X240 alternatives
The Lenovo Thinkpad X240 is a fine long-duration compact traveler with build quality and great working fascia. The change to buttonless touchpad might disappoint those coming from the previous Thinkpads. Hot-swap battery with sizes up to nearly 100Wh, many security options and docking-port capable. A classic Thinkpad.
These specifications apply to the entry-level model. There are many variations including FullHD screen, touch and non-IPS 1366x768. VPro options, and many other options also exist.>
