Living up to its reputation, I've generally been pleased with Lenovo's
overall build quality and performance. The recently reviewed IdeaPad U260 was a real work of art and excelled in nearly every category except for one -- it narrowly missed Intel's Sandy Bridge processor refresh which would have offered even better all-around CPU and GPU performance.
Today we'll be looking at our first notebook based on Intel's second generation Core processors, the ThinkPad X220
. The X220 was just introduced this month and represents Lenovo's latest ultraportable ThinkPad.
Feature highlights include a 12.5" 1366x768 IPS display, a solidly built thin frame and starting weight of 3 pounds, all without sacrificing on performance courtesy of Intel's new mobile processors. The ThinkPad X series
refresh is available in various configurations, from the Core i3-2310M all the way up to the high-end i7-2620M (the series fastest dual-core mobile processor).
