The ThinkPad X200 features a lightweight, rock-solid design with Lenovo’s standard matte black finish. Measuring 11.6 x 9.2 x 0.8 inches and weighing 3.8 pounds. The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 was very well built, it’s super light, super fast, and runs cool even in performance mode. Vista seems to be smooth as silk. 4-cell battery can run for hours when antenna is off.
ThinkPads have been known for their sweet keyboards, and the X200 doesn’t disappoint. We loved the feel of the firm, responsive keys as we created documents in Word, and the spacious layout was conducive to an excellent typing experience. The only different with Thinkpad x300 is the touchpad but as a thinkpad user you will love to use only the responsive TrackPoint.
All the usual ports and connections are on board, starting with two USB ports, Ethernet, VGA, and an ExpressCard slot on the left side (along with the Wi-Fi switch). The right side houses an additional USB port, headphone and mic jacks, and a modem connection. Up front is a lone SD Card reader.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 is an excellent lightweight notebook for mobile professionals who demand the business essentials: security, durability, and lengthy battery life. Although some may prefer an optical drive or a slightly larger display, the power of the Centrino 2 platform combined with the usual ThinkPad excellence makes this one of the best mini notebook around.
