The Lenovo ThinkPad X240 is another great example of a PC born for business, but with enough features for casual use. Like its predecessors, Lenovo's 12.5-inch display sticks with a downright disappointing 1366-by-768 resolution, though it does include touchscreen capabilities. Office workers will also appreciate the host of ports, including 2 USB 3.0 ports, a single USB 2.0 connection, mini DisplayPort, an SD card reader, and yes, a crucial-for-business VGA port.
The ThinkPad X240 is bulkier than most Ultrabooks, but still qualifies for Intel’s ultraportable designation. The notebook's most interesting feature, however, is a dual battery set-up that uses a battery bridge to swap power packs without shutting down. Hello, future!
