Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (4th Gen, 2016)


Durable and long-lasting, but slick and thin, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the business laptop to beat.

Lightweight for a 14-inch laptop. 2,560-by-1,440 (WQHD+) IPS display. Dual pointing devices. 10 hours of battery life. Durable. Comfortable keyboard. Three-year warranty.

Lacks USB-C. New docking system. Ethernet requires dongle.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (4th Gen) review: More connections, but no touchscreen


Lenovo has delivered another impressive ThinkPad X1 Carbon, albeit one that's distinctly evolutionary. Connectivity is improved, but the touchscreen option is gone and battery life could be better.

Expensive ; No touchscreen ; Disappointing battery life

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2016)


Fourth time's a charm? Maybe so with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th generation. Not that the previous generations were slouches-- quite the opposite, in fact! The new 2016 model is an evolutionary improvement with the better screen we were pining...

Slim, light yet strong. Fantastic keyboard, very good display, good port selection

No touchscreen option, no USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon faces some serious competition, even within Lenovo's own overlapping lineup where the ThinkPad X1 Yoga and ThinkPad T460s beckon. The X1 Yoga brings a 360 degree hinge, touchscreen and a Wacom pen for $300 more. The T460s...
