The model I got is very close to the model on this page - i7 processor, IPS display, bluetooth, 4GB DDR3 RAM and slightly smaller hard drive. I'm not sure if it's mentioned here, but I also upgraded the wifi card from the basic Lenovo one to one of the Intel cards.
My previous laptop was the 5 year old IBM x41, so maybe this review is a little biased for Lenovo Thinkpads. I enjoyed using the x41, but it was becoming too slow loading up web pages, the hard drive was too small (30GB) and it ran out of batteries too fast. I was actually looking to upgrade in 2009 but I didn't find a laptop meeting my requirements. I knew I wanted a dual-core processor and SSD drive. Eventually the list grew to USB 3.0 and DDR3. When Intel announced the next gen of dual-core processor (i3, etc.) and I saw what everyone was saying about it, I decided to wait for that to come out.
It was well worth the wait. I use the x220 as my primary computer. I don't need a desktop. It might be nice once in a while to have a larger display to watch movies or pictures, but that's a nice to have. I mainly surf the web, email, download stuff, pay bills, etc. - probably your average computer user. So for your average computer user, this laptop is perfect. $1000 might be a lot for a laptop nowadays, so maybe what I mean is that this laptop is perfect for your average power computer user.
Here's what I like:
- Lightweight - didn't weigh it but shouldn't be heavier than 3.Read more ›
Some programs I use on the x220 include Reason 5.0 for producing music, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, and Illustrator has enough processing power to run many of these programs simultaneously. With the latest Sandy Bridge mobile processors, the x220 runs extremely fast, efficient, and quiet. Although the x220 isn't designed to be a gaming computer, I can play Starcraft 2 on lowest settings at a stable 40+ fps framerate on 1v1. Team Fortress 2 also runs perfectly smooth on lowest settings. This may seem weak, but for gamers who ar less about maxing out settings and more about framerate, the x220 does surprisingly well. There is also an expresscard slot for gamers who want to use an external graphics card configuration via a "ViDock". Finally, I don't know of a laptop with better battery performance than the x220. And replacing the battery is a breeze, unlike the macbook pro.
From a design standpoint, the x220 hasn't changed much from its predecessors. One notable change is the widened aspect ratio. While some may disagree, I think this is a great change, and makes watching movies more enjoyable. I also like how the screen can fold down completely flat. The hinge doesn't seem flimsy at all. In fact, the screen folds down *MORE* than completely flat. If you want to show a friend something on your screen like an ipad, you can easily do it with the x220.Read more ›
