Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X260-20F600A1GE

90% Lenovo X260 Laptop Review: Insanely long battery life
Source: Slashgear English
Lenovo has long had a winner with this particular X lineup model, and that truth remains for the X260. There’s nothing to dislike about this iteration unless you want a touchscreen display. Laptops are, at their foundation, meant to be portable, and portability depends on two things: a lightweight design and ample battery life. This laptop gets positive marks in both those categories, but especially the latter. Road warriors will find it hard to adjust to lesser laptops after basking in the X260’s 20+ hour run time, and that’s not a bad thing.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X260

If you want a truly eye-popping ultraportable, you can find it in releases like the Asus ZenBook 3 or the Apple MacBook, but those machines require you to make some sacrifices in terms of usability, configurability, and durability that are not ideal for a business environment. For business, a sterling screen and a comfortable keyboard are musts, of course, and, like the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the HP EliteBook Folio G1, this laptop has them. And its removable battery can result in legitimately astounding uptime.

60% As boring as it is reliable, Lenovo's ThinkPad X260 is the Hank Hill of laptops

Ultimately, that makes the X260 just one of a number of options for those hunting for a new lightweight laptop for (mostly) work. The ThinkPad’s advantages are the hot-swappable battery, excellent keyboard, and classic design. For some, the XPS 13’s screen upgrade will be more important. For others, the HP’s slick design will win them over. For those who just need a work laptop that’ll last over a long plane flight the X260 is a good, if old-fashioned, choice.

100% Lenovo ThinkPad X260 Review: A Sleek, Tough, All-Business Ultrabook
Source: Hot Hardware English
The ThinkPad x260 is tougher than the typical notebook too, without being truly ruggedized, which is ideal for a system meant to endure the rigors of long travel and still look the part in a boardroom. It’s also meant to be dependable. The dual-battery setup means you can get through the day without ever plugging in your notebook (or even powering it off temporarily, for that matter). If battery life is a major selling point for you, you’re probably already sold.

Lenovo ThinkPad X260 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
Even with the small battery, the ThinkPad is one of the most tempting ultraportables we've seen. It may not attract attention on a plane or train the way a super-skinny laptop like the HP Spectre will, but it'll easily fit on a tray table, where it'll outperform and outlast anything in its class. If it had a USB-C port, we'd be looking for more stars or honors to give it. If you can live with a 12.5-inch instead of larger screen, it should be at the top of your shopping list.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.


82.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
