Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Ultrabook Intel Core i5-3427U ( 3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz)


In August 2012, we reviewed the first version of Lenovo's X1 Carbon , itself a 14-inch update to the previous 13-inch ThinkPad X1 . It was a premium product, very lightweight for a 14-inch laptop, with a carbon fiber body and Lenovo's typically...

Lenovo takes its solid 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon and upgrades it with Windows 8 and a touch screen, while keeping the excellent keyboard.

The touch screen makes the lid thicker, and the touch pad can be finicky at times.

The business-oriented Lenovo ThinkPad X1 adds must-have features for 2013, and remains a very impressive business-oriented ultrabook with strong crossover appeal.

"Best business class Ultrabook currently on the market"


Ok, I splurged - X1 Carbon Touch with Core i7, 256GB SSD, 8GB of memory and the 2 year extended on-site warranty (which was on sale for $60). Landed in Canada, I negotiated it to just under $2,000 from Lenovo direct. My employer has been buying trash...

Gorgeous, bright, matte screen (I don't want 1080p)

Power port looks like a USB port - irritating
