The 14-inch ThinkPad T460 is the productivity powerhouse you need to get work done. A world-class keyboard offers deep travel for comfortable typing while its hot-swappable battery can get over 13 hours of endurance. The T460 is also durable enough to survive extreme shocks, temperatures and vibrations.
With a nearly ideal combination of power, portability and usability, the 12.5-inch ThinkPad X260 lasts over 17 hours on a charge while fitting comfortably on even the smallest tables. Add in a snappy keyboard, strong performance and a durable, MIL-SPEC-tested chassis and you have a winner. Just make sure you configure it with the 1080p display and extended battery.
The 2.6-pound, 0.65-inch thick X1 Carbon doesn't make you compromise functionality or performance to get light weight. Lenovo's flagship laptop sports a brilliant 14-inch display, snappy full-size keyboard and over 9 hours of battery life. An optional PCIe-NVME SSD makes the X1 Carbon really shine with three times the transfer rates of a regular solid state drive.
Though it costs under $200, Lenovo still equipped the 11.6-inch, Ideapad 100S with a bright screen, springy keyboard and colorful chassis. The 2.2-pound Windows 10 laptop lasted a full 9 hours and 48 minutes on our battery test. That's plenty of unplugged time you can use to edit documents or crunch numbers in Office 365 Personal, which comes free for a year when you buy the 100S.
The best ThinkPad is also the most flexible. The 14-inch X1 Yoga can bend back a full 360 degrees to go into tablet, tent or stand modes. However, with a vibrant display, snappy keyboard and battery life topping 8 hours, it's more than just another hybrid. An extremely-accurate stylus combines with Lenovo's WRITEit software to help you scribble in any application's text field.
As the convertible-computer market leader, Lenovo knows a thing or two about making a great 2-in-1. The Yoga 900 is the flagship device in Lenovo's line of sleek, stylish hybrids. The 2-in-1 features an improved version of its eye-catching watchband hinge, a speedy 6th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU and a gorgeous 13.3-inch 3200 x 1800 rotating display. This year's edition of the flagship hybrid increases the device's battery life by 25 percent, to 8 hours, so you won't feel anxious when you're away from a plug. Plus, the watchband hinge is even stiffer, so the screen doesn't bounce or flop around even when in unusual positions.
For just $179, this 11.6-inch Chromebook provides over 11 hours of battery life with solid performance and a lightweight, 2.52-pound chassis. Though a little stiff, the 100S Chromebook's keyboard offers plenty of vertical travel and a solid, flex-free base.
