    Default ThinkPad X240

    On the website of the Hongkong Polytechnic University, the first informations about the non-s X240 emerged:
    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - Notebook Ownership Program 2013
    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - Notebook Ownership Program 2013

    With Touch (X240 Touch):
    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - Notebook Ownership Program 2013
    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - Notebook Ownership Program 2013

    So, basically, it seems to be a bit thicker X240s with one fixed and one swappable battery (much like T440s) and also likely with a DockingPort (although not confirmed yet). The CPUs are the same, as well as the Ports. You are also stuck with 8 GB of RAM, since there is only one RAM Slot.

    Dissapointing... it seems I won't be able to get something new with a good screen and a decent CPU...

    PS: Funny, on the left menu T440s is "high performance" although same CPU as x240...

    That battery life is atrocious for a Haswell ULV. The 1TB of HDD space is nice, but would rather have ssd's as standard. I wonder if there be a twistable X240T?

    If the leaked list of __40 models is anything to go by, there is none.

    I believe I do agree with you. The lack of RAM upgrades along with the lack of full power CPUs makes me hesitant. The 6 hours of battery life seems like a step back though it seems to be replaceable so I assume one can replace it with a fresh battery. From the way it looks like, this doesn't seem like an improvement at all. The X230 was already thin and light so more thinness and lightness weren't that necessary. So based on this, the X230 comes out ahead in many ways.

    The battery life is confusing. The X240s gets 12 hours on 2x3-cell batteries. I'm almost certain the stated 6 hours here is for EACH battery, there's no way the X240 gets HALF the battery life of the X240s when there's essentially nothing different between the two. I don't get why they would advertise 6 hours though, you'd think 12 hours of battery life would be a great selling point.

    So far I don't see a huge difference between the X240 and X240s... sort of disappointing. None of the CPU's offer VT-d.

    Looks like I'm keeping my X201 for another year...this doesn't seem like much of an improvement over the computer I bought 3 years ago.

    Yeah, pretty disappointing. I was about to sell my hp2570p and get something like x240 with IPS FHD, upgradeable ram and decent CPU. Not going to happen... I have 16GB RAM, 2TB storage and a quad core in 12.5" package....upgrading would mean cut in half everything ((((((
    HP EXtremeBook 2570p <> 12.5" LCD<> 3840QM Quad@4Ghz! <> 16GB RAM <> 1.5TB Storage! <> 6hrs of battery life! <> Windows Server 2012 Datacenter
