Default Lenovo X220 Review

Hey guys,
Today I will be reviewing my Lenovo X220 Tablet PC


Price: $1700

Very bright, crisp coloring, occasional rings due to the touchscreen's design. Screen is a fingerprint magnet, but that's the cost of getting a tablet PC.

Excellent layout, takes a while for non-IBM users to get used to the TrackPoint, but afterwards, it's great. Keys pop off once in a blue moon, and they are a pain to put back on.

The Mouse is very awkwardly located- it's way at the edge of the PC, and the click buttons are somewhat concealed. You can tap to click, but the trackpad is generally awkward to use. You will want to use the TrackPoint, which has two main problems. One is that sometimes it gets laggy and moves the mouse on it's own, and the other is that the small red point that you move gets dirty, you can easily clean it though.

The PC gets VERY hot when running games that are graphically demanding. You should use the Intel TurboBoost mode, because it dramatically increases PC performance at the cost of battery life and heat. Enabling this allows the CPU to run at 125% performance. Generally the computer runs quite fast, but it is a little slow to boot up. An aftermarket or configured SSD is a good option if you can sacrifice the storage room. RAM is powerful enough, and the WiFi range is excellent. One very nice feature of this PC is the built-in Broadband feature. Under the battery there is room for a SIM card to be inserted- simply get a sim card (make sure your plan allows this) and put it in, and have internet access everywhere!

Overall score: 9
Gaming Score: 7
CAD/MultiTasking Score: 6.5
Portablity Rating: 10

Thanks for reading!
