    ThinkPad X240Features

    Ultrathin and Ultralight

    The X240 long battery life laptop is the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad laptop we offer. Weighing in at less than 3 lbs and measuring 0.8 inches at its thickest point, the X240 is ultraportable — without sacrificing anything in terms of laptop battery life, ports, connectivity, or durability.

    Award-Winning Keyboard Further Enhanced for Windows 8

    Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. And now it's optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons, LED status indicators, Function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Plus, a larger, smooth TrackPad with 5-point click integration — indicated by subtle bumps and stripes — can be configured multiple ways through Settings. Optional backlight makes working in dark environments effortless.

    4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors

    4th generation Intel® Core™ processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly and move effortlessly between applications, collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference — all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC is what your users will do with it.

    Intel® vPro Technology

    Makes enterprise-level manageability even more convenient and cost-saving. Manage, protect, repair, or locate your deployed laptops from anywhere in the world.

    HD Display With Available IPS Technology

    In-Plane Switching (IPS) LCD displays with high brightness. IPS technology allows for vivid colors and nearly 180-degree viewing angles.

    Power Bridge Technology

    Combining an internal battery with an external hot-swappable battery, Power Bridge provides flexibility and maximum laptop battery life. Swap batteries without powering down your laptop, using an extra travel battery to increase your time between charges to 10 hours or more.

    Ultradurable Construction & MIL-SPEC Tested

    Innovative roll-cage technology adds extra strength and rigidity to the notebook shell and top cover (carbon fiber top with magnesium bottom for maximum strength without adding weight). Military-specification testing validates the ruggedness, durability, and quality of ThinkPad products by testing against eight parameters: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust.

    VGA Port

    Many customers still require a VGA port for projector connections in conference rooms, and native VGA means no dongles for them to buy/lose/replace.

    Available Capacitive Touch Panel

    A capacitive touch panel allows for impeccable response time to 10-finger touch. Actions trigger immediately, and the cursors follow your fingers around the screen without any perceptible lag or delays.

    Fast Data Transfer

    Move data between the X240 and other devices quickly with USB 3.0 — it's up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies and backward-compatible with USB 2.0.
