Lenovo ThinkPad X280 overview

  • 1Description

The 12.5" ThinkPad X280 Multi-Touch Notebook from Lenovo is a business-ready system built with the performance, security, and portability users need. Specs-wise, it's powered by a 1.9 GHz Intel Core i7-8650U processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 512GB M.2 PCIe NMVe SSD. Should you need more room, you can attach external storage solutions via its multiple USB ports as well as insert a microSD card to easily transfer data to other devices.

Its 12.5" display, driven by integrated Intel UHD graphics, is built with an IPS display and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Moreover, it supports touch inputs and gestures, which you can use within Windows 10 to enhance its efficiency and accessibility. Other integrated features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 4.1, a webcam, a microphone, speakers, an HDMI port, a Thunderbolt 3 port, a fingerprint reader, and an audio in/out jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro.

All-Day Battery
The ThinkPad X280 is equipped with an all-day battery that's designed to keep up with your day-to-day demands. Moreover, it's built with RapidCharge technology, which can provide up to 80% charge in just an hour.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Security
The ThinkPad X280 is equipped with a webcam, a fingerprint reader, and TPM security. With Windows Hello, you can easily log into your system with just a glance or a tap of your finger, even if you forgot your password. Meanwhile, the Kensington lock slot and TPM security keeps your device and data protected.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills. Microsoft Edge
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
