Conclusion: If you need a highly portable high-powered business notebook, the X201 is the answer. As far as travel, it has a built in high capacity battery that will last a very long time, especially if you are not using wifi. I have never used a laptop under 13 inches that I enjoyed in actual use until I the X201; the keyboard is exceptional. It was very easy to use for hours without straining my hands or my eyes.
Summary: Tender Evolution? Lenovo delivers the new X201; an updated and upgraded version of the older 12 inch Thinkpads. The X201 will be equipped with the latest Intel Core ix processors. For more details, please read the following in-depth review of the Lenovo X201.
Pros: Very robust case, Good mobility, Very good keyboard, Various upgrades possible, VGA output is good: up to 1280x1024 pixels, Long guarantee, UMTS module, Long battery life, Good program performance, Bright display with a matt surface, High performance subnotebook with good business properties. Keyboard, case and the battery life turn the Thinkpad X201 into an ideal mobile companion.
Cons: Somewhat small touchpad, Long battery life but the battery itself is heavy and large, Constant noise emission, Display has low contrast ratio and colour space, No eSata, USB 3.0, Diplayport or HDMI, A fast port, a digital monitor output and a higher contrast display with a wider colour space.
Conclusion: The ThinkPad X201 is significantly more expensive than the average laptop in its class. However, if budget isn’t a concern, and you think you can benefit from the boost in performance that it offers in comparison to other 12-inch notebooks, the X201 has the features and design to justify the investment.
Summary: The $1,514 ThinkPad X201 continues Lenovo's dominance in the business ultraportable space by providing the same strong combination of portability, performance, and endurance. However, if you can live with slightly slower CPU performance and you don't need a webcam, you might want to consider the ThinkPad X201s instead. That lighter machine has longer battery life, cooler temperatures, and a higher-resolution screen.
Summary: With its faster processor and new touchpad, in many ways the ThinkPad X201 is still the business tablet to beat. However, its faster performance comes with a significant drop in battery life (from 7 hours to 5 hours in the case of our configuration), so if having all-day endurance is important to you and the original X200 tablet is still available when you're shopping, you may want to consider the older model.
Excerpt: We weren't able to get our hands on the upcoming version of the Lenovo ThinkPad X201 (called the X201s) which has the new ultra-low-voltage Core i7 processor. However, as these run at very slow clock speeds, we think most people will be happier with the X201's Core i5 520M. It scored an excellent 90 overall in our benchmarks and amazingly also lasted almost six hours in our light-use battery test.
Summary: Если бизнес-пользователя не смущают цена, 12-дюйм экран, отсутствие встроенного оптического накопителя и дискретной графики, более подходящий компактный ноутбук ему на сегодняшний день трудно будет найти.
Pros: Практичный и эффективный бизнес-дизайн, богатая аппаратная и программная функциональность, обширный набор полезных фирменных утилит, встроенный адаптер WiMAX.
Cons: Высокая цена, одноканальная память в комплекте поставки (в один из двух доступных разъемов SO-DIMM установлен модуль на 4 Гбайт).
