- During the service, we cannot be held responsible for any data loss that may occur, as we may be required to reinstall the Operating System (which will erase previous data).
- We are unable to offer data recovery. As a good practice, we advise our customers to regularly back up their data.
- This does not apply to cosmetic wear due to use, nor existing issue(s) already noted in the original listing, nor does it cover any consumable part (e.g. the battery). During the service, if damage due to misuse is found, e.g. liquid damage /drops, cracked screen, etc, then the cover will be voided (set out fully in the "additional return policy details" below).
- *Our 12-month RTB cover, is separate to any remaining manufacturer's warranty. To be clear, any remaining manufacturer's warranty is not considered a part of this listing's offer, and should be considered as bonus only, should you aim to use it (the rationale is that whilst the Lenovo laptops' warranty follow the serial number & are serviceable under such warranty normally - we have no influence over the manufacturers' warranty policy in the future, should they adjust); as such we stand by our 12-month RTB limited hardware cover only, as a part of this listing.
When we completely redesigned the all-new ThinkPad X280, we took portability seriously. It weighs in at 1.16 kg—13% less than its predecessor. And at just 17.4 mm, it’s 15% thinner as well. Which means you’re getting the most compact 12.5” Ultrabook.

From 0 to 80 in 60
The ThinkPad X280 delivers a longer battery life**. And if you’re running low, the RapidCharge feature provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a lunch break or a layover is a quick opportunity to top the charge up.
**CruiseTech note: Battery life is based on the MobileMark® methodology and is an estimated maximum. Actual battery life may vary based on many factors, including screen brightness, active applications, features, power management settings, battery age and conditioning, and other customer preferences - as such we do not guarantee the system will reach the manufacturer's quote.
