the new navpoint system with that awful trackpad/button is very frustrating. I am not sure why they got rid of their 100% effective navpoint system with this new rattling boogie board... but I will never buy.

I really want to like the X240, but it almost seems like they are designing their Thinkpads to be a relief to be rid of. I haven't had my hands on any X240s, but I've seen the T540p and T440s: the changes to the touchpad, eliminating the individual buttons, makes no practical sense for the end-user.

I hardly ever restart the computer, I disable paging file, keep at least 2 different browsers open all the time (which easily builds up a lot of cache of all the tabs, windows I opened), word, excel etc stay open all the time. And occasionally, some work related database that caches into RAM. My X220 has 16GB and it almost always maxes out.
The memory may be used, but how much of a performance gain does it actually net in real world usage? Performance vs 8GB? Vs 4GB? The majority of workloads that people have would see a very slim or negligible performance boost going to 8GB from 4GB.

If you use really good SSD the difference may not be much. My X220 has the spinning HDD, high RAM helps pretty good.

Not a great deal at all.

I just paid $735 from CDW for a B-STOCK (actually received a brand new unit) for a X240. i5 4300U, 4GB, 128GB SSD, 1920X1080 FHD IPS touchscreen, backlit keyboard, bluetooth, webcam, win 7 pro with window 8 restore cd set + onsite warranty and damage protection for 3 years.

Unit was probably a corporate return. It was sealed and never used.

With a hard drive, absolutely. In the context of this thread where the X240 has a robust SSD, not so much.

If you're not in need of the i5 processor and can live w/ core2duo (which for most is just as good), there are plenty of older, used,but still high quality thinkpad models that can be had on ebay for under $200 and some even under $100.. I believe the x200s is the lightest 12inch thinkpad that's even lighter than some of the newest most expensive thinkpads today. If you pick your timing right, you can pick one of those up for under $100 and then spend a few more bucks for an SSD and you've saved 500+ on some of the newer thinkpad models ! X300, and x301 are the lightest 13in models and those come w/ ssd installed standard and can be found under $200 ! I own both and while the processors are slower, I haven't noticed a difference in everyday use. Say thanks if I saved you some dollars !

wow.. if you plan on buying an old x200 or 201.. there's also the x300 or x301 which are 13 inch screens that i think functioned better than the x200 series, having owned both. I actually regretted letting go the x301 a few years ago and re-bought it for like $150-200 for sentimental reasons. LMAO

There are so many models out there it really depends what you are looking for.

x200s

and

x300 x301

are my personal thinkpad favorites.. because they are fully functional and are the lightest for the price range.

I also own an x61 tablet
it's a fully functional PC and a tablet in 1... you can score one of those for under $100 on eBay !

Ya they are older models but talk about being a slick deal. As long as the laptop is for just regular use, you don't need a newer model that's 3x-5x as expensive !

Thinkpads are awesome. They feel solid. They have awesome keyboards, track pads, and track points. They are built to last. But they can be expensive.
Many people sell the t61 on Craigslist with Windows 7. I feel bad for the person who doesn't do their research.

I also keep seeing tons of t410's for sale new or refurbished. They are 5 years old. I just wish they had a decent model with i3 or i5 for cheap.

Anyone know if lenovo does black Friday sales?
