The Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is another solid entry in the ThinkPad lineup, and a competent successor to last year's Lenovo ThinkPad X240. The ultraportable design is both lightweight and durable, with classic ThinkPad stylings and a healthy collection of features. It's a little light on storage, but the performance ranks alongside our top picks in the category, and the swappable battery system is a must for anyone who may need to use their laptop continuously for long days on end, such as a trade show. The Dell Latitude 14 7000 Series (E7450) remains our Editors' Choice business ultraportable, due to its slightly better performance, but the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is a solid alternative that (in this configuration) sells for less.

The ThinkPad X250 hits the bullseye on the elements most important to business ultraportable buyers: battery life, portability, security, and durability. Its standout creature comforts—killer keyboard, available HD screen, unique conferencing features—sweeten the pot even more. It's not cheap, but it's a five-star Editors' Choice pick.

Aside from a less than reliable fingerprint reader, questionable function key placement and third-party apps that need vanquishing, I have no problem recommending the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 to anyone, business user or not. The hot swappable batteries are a stroke of genius and don’t weigh the machine down or make it feel overly thick. Whenever you do switch out a battery it feels more like you’re refueling a futuristic stealth jet without landing than completing a mundane task.

I've been a fan of the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga X series for many years. This year's refresh with the latest Intel processors and the revised trackpad with hardware buttons keep the X250 fresh and appealing for those who need a durable yet highly portable laptop with a fantastic keyboard, good trackpad and long battery life with the 6 cell battery.

If you're looking for a no-compromise business ultraportable with a focus on productivity, the ThinkPad X250 is an excellent choice. With more than 15 hours of battery life (using the six-cell battery), a snappy typing experience, a high-res display and full-size Ethernet and SD Card readers on board, this 12.5-inch laptop lets you work on the go with confidence.

The same rugged elements are all included in the latest model, as well as the relatively portable and svelte design. If you enjoyed the X240 and like having the newest thing, updating to the X250 is worth the jump. If you're new to this line up of laptops entirely, however, and you're looking for something with power and long battery life, prepare to be amazed.

Conversely, it's not as heavy as a workstation, and it's more versatile than consumer Ultrabooks. So, it's up to you: if ports and a hot-swappable battery are more important than workstation-class performance or cutting-edge consumer laptop design, then the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 is right for you. But that's sure a lot of "ifs."

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
