Lenovo X220 - First impressions review

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Just put this up, I got the laptop two days ago. Having a ball with it so far. And secondly, sorry for posting the other thread so soon too! It's a day off for me here so I was able to get both these videos done quickly and they are fairly unique.

It took ages to upload on my poor internet connection so I wrote a lot in the description:

An Ultraportable laptop which is barely larger than a netbook and with a tradtional processor for more speed, the one unboxed here is an i7 2620M , 4Gig Ram, 320gig 7200Rpm hard drive, no msata drive and the 6 Cell Battery.

Other points not mentioned in the first impressions:
The trackpoint is the red thing in the middle of the laptop, and works as a pointer. Very precise compared to the trackpad, It's up to personal preference on if you like it. So far I'm loving it.

The graphics mentioned in the review are actually only the integrated ones, and not discrete. This is partly why it still has a great battery life for this form factor. The graphics processor is the same as all other second generation sandybridge ones, being the Intel HD 3000. Leagues ahead of the poor GMA series, this is a gpu that besides gaming will serve you very well.

.. Although I didn't mention the fingerprint reader, it could have saved me once already - I had opted to not set it up straight away, and put a big password for logging in. Of course, as soon as I reset... I forgot the password! Down goes some time clearing the password in order to keep trying it.
If you can get these at a good enough budget with sales at the US Store, it's a great bargain that makes netbooks not that appealing anymore for me hehe.

Hmmm. Should be a great laptop. Have a few Lenovo X201's here at work and they are quite nice. Looking to get myself this X220 as well.
