Made for professional travelers
Display and Design
The Lenovo Thinkpad X230 (2325-3NQ) shows off a 12.5-inch HD LCD display which looks pretty sharp and rich even with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is wrapped in an all black outfit which stays away from scratches and oil or sweat from your hands. It has a thickness of 26.6 mm and a weight of just 1.34 kg so that you will hardly feel like leaving it while travelling.
Processor and OS
The main reason for the high price of the machine is the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor racing at 2.9GHz which can be increased up to 3.6GHz via Turbo Boost. It is assisted by 4MB of cache memory and a 4GB DDR3 RAM expandable up to 16GB through two DIMM slots. The preloaded Intel HD 4000 GPU is capable of managing only simple videos and games. It runs on 64 bit Windows 7 Professional OS.
Camera, Storage and Others
The Lenovo Thinkpad X230 (2325-3NQ) supports high resolution video calls courtesy the HD webcam sitting above the screen. It accounts for your storage needs with a regular 500GB SATA HDD. It has an UltraNav keyboard, gesture supported touchpad and most importantly a fingerprint sensor which increases the security of data stored in the machine.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo Thinkpad X230 (2325-3NQ) promises to last for up to 5 hours with the 6 cell Li-ion battery. From the connectivity point of view, it supports WLAN, HDMI out, Bluetooth v4.0, 1 USB 2.0 slot, Ethernet port, 4-in-1 card reader and VGA port.
The Lenovo Thinkpad X230 (2325-3NQ) is apt for those who travel frequently and need a powerful notebook to handle business needs. And they must be ready to manage with a smaller screen for that as well. Although, it has an Intel Core i7 processor, Lenovo could have priced it more competitively.
