Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon review

 

Lenovo's X1 Carbon is no longer the slimmest notebook around, but its excellent battery life and rugged quality keep it a contender.

Lenovo’s flagship ThinkPad has aged well. While it doesn’t seem as svelte as it once did, it remains a ruggedly built, quick machine with outstanding portability. There are elements that could be better, such as the display, but the Carbon proved at...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch (2015)

 

The latest Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is an incredibly thin and light business ultrabook that features a premium design with a 14-inch touch screen and all-day battery life.

2,560-by-1,440 (WQHD+) touch screen. Good performance from fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Dual pointing devices. Improved keyboard and touch pad over those of the previous-generation model.

Pricey. Ethernet requires dongle.

The latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is an appealing laptop, and Lenovo has made strides in correcting the flaws in last year's model, namely the keyboard issues and the system's battery life. All these factors make it a formidable contender among...

Lenovo's slim X1 Carbon gets an 'adaptive' row of touch controls (hands-on)

 

New CPUs and a better-than-HD screen make this 2.8-pound ultrabook a top crossover contender.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review (2015)

 

In January of this year, I walked into the Lenovo booth at CES and almost immediately to the right there was a large display case set up, and inside was Eve. Eve looked great in the case all dressed in black, and was well attended to by her hosts. Eve...

The X1 Carbon that Lenovo shipped out for review is likely the fastest Ultrabook yet. The Broadwell Core i7 is certainly a step ahead of the other devices we have tested, and the included PCIe SSD is basically the fastest drive offered today. It is...

If you’re a fan of the second-generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon, you’ll find the newest version to be better in all the right ways while retaining everything there is to love about the business ultrabook. It is still slim and relatively lightweight, and it...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon made a sizable splash with its sleek ultraportable body and high-end metal hybrid construction, but even through its second-generation (“2nd Gen/Gen 2”) revision, it retained some pretty polarizing features. Chief among them...

Beautiful, comfortable design, Fantastic keyboard, Vastly improved clickpad, Resurrected physical buttons for TrackPoint, Anti-glare display panel, Accessible maintenance, Silent while idle; quiet otherwise, Comfortable temperatures even under load,...

Bouncy hinges, Limited port selection, Low LCD brightness and contrast, Lackluster color saturation, Somewhat lower performance unplugged, Restrictive thermal management leads to throttling under load, Limited write speeds of the SSD, Unimpressive...

The Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd Gen is a beautiful machine. Much like the Dell XPS 13 took the initiative to cram a 13-inch screen into an 11-inch form factor, the X1 Carbon sports dimensions that are more comparable to a typical 13-inch machine—and that...
