Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Review


With long battery life, a best-in-class keyboard, and a slim, soft-touch design, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the Maserati of business laptops.

Long battery life; Vibrant and colorful display; Comfy, soft-touch chassis; Very light

Expensive; Dim Screen; Tinny audio

Lenovo's flagship Ultrabook is its best one yet, with a first-class design and stellar battery life. Take a closer look inside the newest ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
