In terms of specs, this configuration sports a sixth-generation dual-core 2.3GHz Intel Core i5-6200U processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 520, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. And the 12.5-inch display? It benefits from a full HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080, an anti-glare coating, and in-plane switching.
Weighing in around three pounds, and measuring only eight-tenths of an inch thick, this laptop is an excellent choice for frequent flyers. Not only is it small and lightweight, but the battery setup is particularly noteworthy. By default, this model features a three-cell 23.2WHr battery in the front and a three-cell 23.2WHr battery in the rear.
Better yet, the rear battery is upgradable and hot-swappable. Step up to a six-cell 72WHr rear battery (for an extra fee), and you’ll get up to 21.4 hours on a full charge. And if you plan on being away from outlets for an extended period, you can simply stock up on extra batteries.
When you finally get back to your desk, the ThinkPad X260 makes for a wonderful little workhorse. The mini DisplayPort and HDMI port allow for quick connections to your PC monitor or HDTV, so you can get work done on the big screen. And if you’d like to hook up an external keyboard or hard drive, the three included USB 3.0 ports make expansion a breeze.
