What about x270 ?

#1 Post by ThinkGreen » Wed Oct 02, 2019 6:18 am

I'm thinking to pass from my x220 to a more recent x270 that I've found for 300 euro, in really good conditions and with a remaining warranty time of about 7 months.

Could it be a concrete and effective upgrade, considering overall performance, battery life, versatility and display quality ?

Please be more succinct.

Does it worth the price, compared to other models that could be bought for a similar price ?

I just bought one brand new from Lenovo for what I think was a good price and I am happy with the performance. I had been using an x61t before that so the the performance difference was very noticeable.

From model to model there are big differences. For what concerns this X270 I don't know if it worth the price, but the good news is that it has 13 months of residual warranty.

The price looks good. Does it have an IPS screen. If yes, the price is great.

You might need to get used to the 6-row keyboard layout.

It's lighter and faster than the X220, that's for sure.

Still OK despite not being IPS. Specs look good.
It's only 2 generations behind the current model, so that's a plus.

The X220's biggest weakness (compared to the X270) is the Intel HD 3000 graphics-- this is something I've noticed when trying to play some Windows games via Wine-- the lack of OpenGL 4+ and/or Vulkan support limits compatibility, and the system temperature rises dramatically when the built-in graphics is under heavy load. Ironically, an AMD E-350 (a netbook-class APU) has better game compatibility (despite lower overall performance) due to its built-in Radeon HD 6310 with OpenGl 4.4 support.
