    I replaced my x220 with a T450s and have heavily used it for 3 years now. Bigger and better screen, runs cooler, better battery life, better speakers and lightweight.

    @amazing-boy there is no laptop that can replace a Thinkpad, in my personal opinion. They are all lacking something - and not only a trackpoint.

    @Mobius 1 I was thinking more along the lines of parts availability, but you've got a valid point. =p

    get the the DELL 6440

    Socketed CPU although the i5 is good enough the option to upgrade to a true quad core is priceless.

    there are some with radeon gpu that you should avoid.

    also if you spot one that has an express card slot -take it.

    Dell has no whitelists (apart from the annoying smart charger and battery) and while the 6440 only came with a 1600x900 TN screen at best - the 30 pin edp cable allows for a direct IPS upgrade.

    Note that some of the models may need the cable to be upgraded (minor cost) but this can be pre-empted by acquiring the service tag and checking the BOM from the dell website to reduce the risks.

    The ivy bridge series would actually be my choice if only it had suport for mSata SSDs.

    for under $350 (if u factor the cost of a new screen) - u get a machine that can support at least 2 Sata 3 ssd and an additional one via the optical caddy although i think the speed is SATA 2 but coming from a lenovo - u'd probably not see the diff as the mSATA for the X220 is also SATA 2,

    oh and based on cpu benchmarks - the i5 version of the Haswell M performs better than the i5-7200u (purely cpu wise)
