It'll be used for general office work: Word, Excel, PP, some Latex and Acrobat.

Needs: 16+ hours battery life of continuous use with wifi off. vPro and smartcard to comply with company security guidelines.

You're probably not going to find an ultrabook with built-in smartcard.

thinkpad t440s has smartcard. don't think it has 16 hours battery continuous use, actually i don't think any ultrabook on the market right now has 16 hours battery with min screen brightness and all radio modules off on active usage

The X240 with the high capacity battery meets the criteria I listed, but I am seeing if there are any better alternatives because:

1. the HC battery protrudes from the bottom.
2. I really dislike how Lenovo handled the fn keys at the top row of the keyboard (default media keys+end or default fn keys+insert. I use fn keys and end frequently, media keys rarely, and insert never).

I don't think you can get 16 hours of battery life without a secondary/external battery.

i thought it was 13h battery or is that the normal battery? off the top of my head there isn't a laptop without the protruding battery that you don't like that with battery life that long. outside of lenovo, i can't think of any other company that would have a laptop with small form factor + business features.

the fn keys can always be remapped
