The X250 is more of a side-grade for someone with a X220 in terms of performance, right?

What are the biggest improvements over the X220?

Curious because I bought a $1,200 X250 configuration for a bit under $800 (corporate discount) but I'm considering canceling it.
>>
Better battery, better non shit tier 1366x768 TN screen, lighter, thinner, better keyboard
>>
I'm using an x200 right now and it works pretty great, y'know. Core 2 duo.

Is there anything around that still has a 16:10 screen?
>>

You have less max ram, but newer generation processor. 1080p screen vs the 720p screen on a x220. The main advantage aside from the screen is the improved integrated graphics.

The question is whether it is worth 4x the cost for those improvements to you even with your discount.

But the x220 has a decent IPS option and the keyboard is better.

1080p display and only single channel memory, will it really play games better than an X220?

X220 has Intel HD 3000 with dual channel memory and only 1366x768 resolution.

My x220 plays DaS II on near max graphics just fine. No clue what the x250 will do but the Intel HD 4000 is supposed to be almost double the performance of the HD 3000.

Honestly, I'm mildly curious about the 11e. Barring the lack of trackpoint, how's the build quality and screen on it?
>>
>>47652054
oh shit, didn't know that the difference was that great guess Intel has come a long way since HD 3000

>>47652054
11e? You mean the X250? I can't say yet since I'm waiting to get an order confirmation from Lenovo but they have added back the trackpoint buttons and the screen can be a 1080p IPS. Keyboard flex seems to be a problem, unknown build quality compared to previous models I'm considering comparing the X250 to my X220 and X201
>>
A 256gb ssd for the x220 will add another $100 to the price, and you'll have to factor in the cost of adding more ram if you want it. Also only the i7's have usb3 if you care about that
>>
>>47651711
its more of a usability upgrade instead of a performance. I like my x240 after I upgrade the trackpad of course. Depends on your use case I guess
>>
>>47652119
No, I mean the 11e. I'm interested in a cheap Thinkpad, but I wouldn't mind dealing with modern Celeron if the laptop is otherwise good. It's just a compliment to my desktop.
>>
>>47651974
>gaymes
Just cancel your order faggot. Kill yourself after that too.
>>
>>47652185
Look into an x120e. Those are cheap and swag ;)
>>
>>47652219
If I'm going used, I'm going X220.
>>
>>47651899
the ips display on the x220 is absolute shit tier
>>
>>47651844
Macbooks. But that's not what you want to hear.

>>47652219
The X120e sucks. Even if you put a SSD in it it's still a dog.

>>47652613
not exactly shit tier but it's still the same resolution and all the LG produced panels have the ghosting effect where if you have something high contrast on screen for a few minutes and then switch to something dark grey you will see shadows of what was there before and they can stick around for up to a few minutes. Some of the Macbook Pros had this too.

>copying literally everything from apple
>except the 16:10 screen
>or a non-garbage trackpad

why are chinks so shit at designing hardware?
>>
>>47652032
no way... how much ram do you have??

Mine seems to struggle with a lot of games.
