Best speakers are a little more difficult to come by, but the new Lenovo IdeaPad X240 Pro is worth considering if you’re a fan of video games, home theater, or just want a laptop that’s good enough for most uses.
The X240 pro’s 10.1-inch Full HD panel and 5K resolution (1920 x 1080) make it an excellent choice for video-gaming and gaming-focused home theater systems, but if you want a more affordable gaming system, the $499 ThinkPad X230 is a solid alternative.
Lenovo’s entry-level X240 has a 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a fingerprint reader built-in.
It comes with an optional 128GB SSD.
Both systems are available in 15.6-inch, 16.3-inch and 18.5-inch models.
Lenovo is also selling the X240 laptop in a variety of colors, but it’s worth considering the silver-colored X240 with a matte black lid, which is available only in Europe.
You’ll be able to find the X230 with an aluminum chassis and black keyboard, as well as the X200, which has a glossy silver interior.
You might be able the X235 for $499, but that’s a bit pricey compared to the X238, which costs $1,699.
Lenovo doesn’t have a specific price for the X236 yet, but we expect it to be priced at around $1.6 million in the US.
The $399 ThinkPad Yoga 13 11.6 Pro is Lenovo’s most affordable full-size laptop.
Its Intel Core M processor, 512GB of DDR3 RAM, and Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics chip (2GB of GDDR5 graphics) make this an excellent laptop for gaming and home theater setups.
The keyboard, speakers, and the X400 speakers (the only speakers on this laptop) all make it a great value for a good-looking, low-cost laptop.
You can find the Yoga 13 for $449, but its price is a bit steep for its features.
Lenovo has an older model of the Yoga, but you can find it for $549 with the ThinkPad 15 10-inch keyboard and speakers.
Lenovo does not sell a 13-inch Yoga model, so you can’t get one for less than $500.
For a budget-friendly option, the ThinkPads Yoga 13 is the best value.
If you’re looking for something that’s easy to use and doesn’t require a lot of space, the Lenovo ThinkPad Z30 12-inch is a great option.
It’s a full-sized 15.4-inch laptop, and it has a 10.8-inch full-HD screen, 1.8GHz quad core Intel Core m5 processor (Intel HD Graphics 4000), 8GB RAM, 256GB flash storage, a USB-C port, a fingerprint sensor, a power adapter, and microSD slot.
It also comes with a touchpad, keyboard, and speakers, though we don’t recommend buying the integrated webcam.
Lenovo makes a number of smaller and cheaper models of the Z30, including the Z31, Z31X, Z33, Z34, Z35, and Z36.
For the most affordable option, Lenovo offers the Z35.
Lenovo offers both the Z32 and Z34 for $249.
It is also offering the Z34 with a keyboard, built-into the chassis, a built-up volume, and Bluetooth 4.0.
We like the Z37 with a smaller screen, but some people might prefer the smaller model, which comes with more ports and a faster processor.
You will also find the Z38 and Z38X, which come with a larger 15.5-, 16-, and 18-inch screen and a better keyboard, a lower price, and Intel’s new HD Graphics 620 processor.
We’re not sure if Lenovo is offering a 12- or 15-inch model, but both have the same battery life.
If there’s a bigger laptop for you, Lenovo’s new ThinkPad T440 is an attractive entry-line alternative to the older ThinkPad line.
This 13- and 15-megapixel IPS display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 and a 1,080 x 1,200 pixel resolution, but there’s no fingerprint reader or an optical drive, so it doesn’t support Windows Hello, but at least it’s more affordable.
You won’t find a keyboard for the T440 yet, as it’s still listed as available only for European markets.
Lenovo says the T443 is coming soon, but for now you can buy the T442 with a 10-megapixels IPS display, built into the chassis.
The T440’s $1 ,299 price tag might be a bit on the high side for a 13.3 megapixel IPS
