Series: The Lenovo ThinkPad X270 is one of Lenovo’s newest laptops. It is built to be a so-called ‘business road warrior system’ that boasts more than 20 hours of battery life despite a weight of only 1.32 kg (2.9 lbs). The X270 covers all the bases, offering all the ports, power and features desired in a daily laptop. It is available with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Signature Edition. With the responsiveness and efficiency of 7th generation Intel Core processors, users can switch effortlessly between their favorite apps. Unlike with a regular mechanical hard drive, with a solid-state drive (SSD) there are no moving parts and it performs faster. Boot up time is nearly three times quicker while opening files is up to 30% faster with an SSD. In addition to delivering powerful performance, the X270 is quieter and more reliable. It is common for a business laptop to have a more robust build. The Lenovo ThinkPad X270 is no exception. Tested against 12 military-grade requirements and passing more than 200 quality checks, the X270 is engineered to survive the bumps and bruises of life. ThinkPad series laptops normally feature a fingerprint sensor and so does the X270. With Windows Hello, users can simply touch the fingerprint scanner to log in to X270.

With two batteries and Power Bridge technology, the X270 affords great flexibility. And it is lightweight, starting at just under 1.36 kg (3 lbs). In other words, the X270 features two removable batteries and each battery is available in a standard 3-cell (23 Wh) capacity and the rear battery is also available in two varieties of 6-cell extended life capacities (48 Wh or 72 Wh). Since it can easily power through the day (according to Lenovo), a user can feel free to leave the adapter behind and forget about searching for power outlets. On the X270, both the TrackPoint and the TrackPad on their award-winning ThinkPad keyboard are refined. With an improved design that lessens jumps and gaps when scrolling, Lenovo’s navigation technology delivers a smoother, cleaner, and more accurate experience. Ports and connectivity options are numerous including optional NFC, a smart card reader, Ethernet, an audio combo jack, HDMI, USB-C, two USB 3.0 ports and one always-on USB 3.0 port, and a 4-in-1 card reader. There is also a webcam with a 720p resolution. Besides the standard WiFi and Bluetooth, the Thinkpad X270 has LTE-A available. It enables users to always have connectivity and access to all data and apps in the cloud. The ThinkPad X270 comes with a standard worldwide warranty, which means that users can get help in 160 countries around the globe. It is a good feature in case the laptop requires any services or warranty, when a user is travelling for work around the world.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake 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.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.

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, 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.
