I have heard / read a lot of good things about the X220 series of Lenovo Thinkpads. When I came across a X220T on eBay in very good condition my curiosity compelled me to pull the trigger. Today we are going to take a look at a x220t that I bought off eBay for $120 later reduced to $90 after I told the seller there was a supervisor password on the system. Specs include an intel I5 2520M @ 2.5Ghz, 4GB DDR3, 1366×768 12.5″ IPS display, and for testing I added a 120GB SSD.
Although this laptop its small, this laptop packs a punch. Its dual core I5 makes it great for web browsing, playing back videos, and writing papers, and the 4GB of RAM is enough for typical multitasking. Personally my favorite thing about the X220t is the IPS display. This is one of the best displays I have seen so far on an older thinkpad. It might even be enough of an advantage over my T430 to make me switch to the x220t.
