X260 - disappointing

2016-01-14, 21:47 PM

I was hoping to replace my aging X201s, and I've been holding out for the X260. I was very disappointed to see that it's essentially the X250, but with a dimmer screen (300 nits rather than 400). Still no USB-C power. No improvements to the keyboard. Now I'm planning to try to hang on for the Retro model next year. If that's still no good (e.g., comes out only in 14" - too big), maybe Dell will have added a good keyboard to the XPS-13 by then.

You are right, the X series is no longer attractive at all. Due to 16:9 wide design is too bulky while T460s is almost the same weight now. It is no longer as sexy as X60 used to be :smileyfrustrated:

Also looks to have the same narrow keyboard that the Yoga 260 has. I can't understand this, given that there is lateral room.

Yes it is very dissapointing that Lenovo dimmed the screen with the x260 (300nits) compared to the x250 (400nits).

 

Why would Lenovo do this? I know Thinkpads are business themed laptops but that doesnt mean the screens should stink... very bad call on their part. Put an OLED in their flagship Thinkpad and have poorly lit low quality screens in pretty much all the others = (

Two reasons for a guess, cost and battery life

I have to agree with folks here.  add on that it doesn't support touch!  Huh?????  Ugh.  cost cutting measures will mean customers that they do have will go elsewhere!

 

I don't want the T because it's too big for planes!

@bkbain...

 

You might want to research the ThinkPad Yoga 260 if you're looking for touch in a thin/light 12.5" screen form factor machine.

I bought a Yoga 260 for my wife, who wanted a thin machine. The palm rest is huge, the edge is sharp, and, despite all the space, the keyboard is narrower than my old X201 - and has fewer keys.
