  • Just before the video, let’s first take a look at the main good and bad points…

    The good: Record-breaking battery life; strong performance for an ultraportable; comfortable full-size keyboard; wide-screen display with a sharp resolution; WWAN and GPS options.
    The bad: Nine-cell battery adds significant weight; lacks an optical drive; includes pointing stick but no touch pad.

    The bottom line: It lacks some basic features you may require–touch pad, optical drive–but the 12.1-inch ThinkPad X200 offers strong performance and the longest battery life we’ve seen. With a variety of connectivity options and a roomy keyboard, the X200 makes a great ultraportable for road warriors.
