Portability perfected


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.

Primed for productivity

Despite its aggressively streamlined design, the ThinkPad X280 packs even more punch than previous models. From cutting-edge 8th Gen Intel Core processors to the fast SSD storage, from RapidCharge to its innovative security options, the X280 gives you the resources to drive your business forward.

From spilled drinks to drops and knocks, modern laptops need to withstand life on the road. The ThinkPad X280 has you covered. It’s tested against 12 MIL-SPEC requirements and passes more than 200 durability tests. Whether it’s a day at the office, or a day on the move, the X280 has you covered.

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.
