Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review: doing it right

 

No hybrid distractions, just a pure, distilled laptop

Rigid, sturdy design and materials ; Wonderful keyboard ; Great battery life for such a thin PC ; Solid performance ; Matte screen with thin bezels

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch review

 

When I reviewed the X1 Carbon, Lenovo's flagship ThinkPad laptop, I found few faults. It's an eye-catching computer that combines everything good about ThinkPads – great keyboard, sturdy design,...

Touchscreen works well ; Gorgeous, sleek design ; Solid performance ; Great keyboard

Gets really hot ; Expensive ; Too much bloatware

If you want a Carbon, buy the touchscreen — but you might not want a Carbon at all

Gorgeous design ; Thin and light ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Solid overall performance

Way too much bloatware ; Gets hot easily ; Terrible for gaming

$1,399 is a steep price, even for such beauty

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet review: A tablet hybrid with extras

 

When you think of a tablet you don't generally think of peripheral ports or extra bells and whistles. The ThinkPad X1 tablet is a different kind of tablet.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 tablet is a squared off slab with slightly angled edges that give it a nice feel in the hand. Consturected of metals, plastic, and glass it feel premium and solid, not cheap at all. Around the front of the tablet (landscape...

If you want to enjoy Windows 8 then Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is best for you. Since every Windows 8 device offers low battery power so does it but the overall performance of the ultrabook is unmatched.
