This is a lightweight ultraportable laptop retailing for approximately £750.
Description and appearance:
Black plastic with flip top lid that opens through pressing a catch on the front.
All the keys are black except the enter key which is blue (this looks a bit odd).
Approximately half the weight of a standard laptop.
Battery life is approximately 4 hours which is excellent.
Smart, sleek appearance.
Small screen which measures 26cm x 16cm, which means more eye strain.
The fact it is compact and lightweight means that there is less functionality in the main body of the computer. Therefore, if you want to use a mouse or a CD disk drive these have to be purchased and carried separately and linked to the laptop through plugging in at one of the side ports. This can be a bit of a hassle.
Some laptops have a pad on the front that operates like a mouse pad, however this laptop is too small for this and so there is only a red button which can be manipulated like a mouse. This has on occasion given me repetitive strain injury in my finger and lower wrist.
The ThinkPad X200s notebook combines thin and light design with powerful functionality. It is reinforced with Lenovo's signature carbon and glass fiber top cover roll cage to provide ultra-light design with extra strength to exceed the rigors of mobile computing environments, helping make it Lenovo's lightest ThinkPad notebook to date. It is also equipped with up to 128 GB solid state drive storage, LED backlit displays, and ultra-wideband functionality as well as Bluetooth connectivity for an exceptional computing experience.
