80% Lenovo ThinkPad X270 Review

You’ll have a hard time topping the Lenovo ThinkPad X270 when it comes to a small, do-it-all travel companion. With its internal roll cage and durable exterior, it’s built to last. On the inside, this 12.5-incher hides some pleasant surprises: it has user-replaceable memory, where we’re used to seeing soldered memory; a 2.5-inch drive bay; support for snap-in docking stations; and a swappable rear battery. Those are all features uncommon in small ultraportable notebooks.

No outlet in sight? This laptop can run without ever plugging it in

The sweet spot really lies somewhere in the middle. The $1,300 to $1,500 range is when you're getting the both of best worlds. he $1,300 to $1,500 range is where you'll find the best of both worlds, including a fast processor, plenty of storage, and unparalleled battery life. The X270 can't do anything about the guy in front of you reclining into your space the whole flight or the unruly child that's kicking the back of your seat, but at least you never have to worry about running out of juice.

89% Lenovo ThinkPad X270 review: A compact, powerful business laptop
Source: Techaeris English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X270 is billed as a business laptop, but of course, can be utilized in the home as well. The CPU on our unit is more than powerful enough for anything you throw at it, just don’t ask the GPU to do any serious gaming. The screen is bright and glare free, the touchpad is very responsive, and the battery life is exemplary. All in all, I would say the X270 is a great option if you need a powerhouse laptop that is light and portable.

The X270 is a compact, though chunky, take on the ThinkPad with a deceptive amount of power. Add to that a full port loadout and a swappable battery, and this Lenovo laptop will work through the day and into the night.

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a video—a locally stored MP4 file containing the full The Lord of the Rings trilogy—with screen brightness set at 50 percent and volume at 100 percent until the system conks out.

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.  
7600U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.8 to 3.9 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process. Integrates a HD Graphics 620 clocked at 300 - 1150 MHz and is manufactured in 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.

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.
