Background and Identification
The ThinkPad X260 is Lenovo’s 2016 successor to the X250 from the previous year. Like its predecessor, the X260 was tested by Lenovo to meet “military standards"; reviewers likewise noted the durability and stability of the chassis. The X260 sports a sixth-generation Intel CPU, with different models using Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processors. All the versions of the laptop use Intel’s integrated HD 520 graphics to power the 12-inch screen.
This ThinkPad shares features common to the line such as the three button trackpad and the red trackpoint between the G and H keys. With the X260, Lenovo replaced the VGA analog video port with an HDMI port which sits right next to the Mini DisplayPort. The machine also uses three USB ports and a card reader along with a full-size Ethernet port. It only has one memory slot behind the main back cover, but the laptop can handle up to 16 GB. Meanwhile, the battery is fully accessible and swappable with two latches on the bottom of the case.
You can identify this laptop by looking for the word “X260“ just below the screen. You can find the serial number on a sticker on the bottom of the device.
