Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the best laptop for traveling professionals.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch review: one of our favorite Ultrabooks gets a touchscreen

 

The X1 Carbon Touch is among the best Windows 8 Ultrabooks around, with a comfortable keyboard, fast performance and a lightweight build. Still, it's pricey, even for a high-end ultraportable.

Solid build, lightweight for a 14-inch machine ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Fast performance

Expensive ; Narrow viewing angles

It's a shame every touchscreen Ultrabook we've tested delivers such skimpy battery life. It forces us to recalibrate our expectations, and not necessarily in a good way. One of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon's biggest shortcomings is that its built-in...

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Tablet tops the Surface’s keyboard game

 

This two-in-one comes with a comfy detachable keyboard and stylus, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Surface in performance and battery life.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 has a sharp screen and offers flexibility through optional modular accessories. Its excellent detachable keyboard is one of the best of its kind.

It has below-average battery life. It's expensive considering its performance.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a unique professional tablet with modular accessories, though you can find a similar two-in-one hybrid with better battery life for less money.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) review: A modern classic for the battery-bleeding business traveler

 

At less than 2.5 pounds and a terrific almost-12 hours of battery life, the fifth-generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon makes a great travel companion.

Class-leading battery life, good performance and its light weight are among the ThinkPad X1 Carbon's main virtues.

It's expensive, and there's no touchscreen option.

This isn't the most feature-packed or stylish system. But it does have the classic look and the performance, battery life and light weight a traveler needs from a traditional laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017)

 

The latest Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a very thin, light, and powerful laptop that lasts nearly 16 hours on battery power.

Almost 16 hours of battery life. Weighs less than 2.5 pounds. Bright, clear display. USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 support. Anti-Fry cable protection.

Ethernet requires a dongle. Omits OneLink+ dock compatibility. No touch screen option.

The latest iteration of the Lenovo X1 Carbon is easy to carry everywhere, it's sleek enough to show off, it'll last all day (and then some), and it has the power to motor through office and multimedia tasks easily. In addition, the screen is brilliant,...

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.

While it's about $100 more expensive than the ThinkPad 450s, the latest Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a higher-resolution 14-inch screen and a sublime keyboard, it's a pound lighter, lasts over ten hours, and is covered by a longer warranty. The...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review

 

Every once in a while, an example of technological design jumps out as substantially better than the competition. That's the feeling I got when I started using the keyboard on the latest version of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The hefty, well-spaced...

The better-than-HD touch display on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon looks great, the new row of adaptive function keys is clever, and the keyboard and touch pad remain best-in-class examples.

Even dropping the higher-resolution touch display doesn't bring the price down, and the otherwise excellent keyboard has a couple of head-scratching, and typo-inducing, changes to the standard layout.

The third version of Lenovo's ultralight 14-inch laptop, the X1 Carbon, gets nearly all the basics right while adding a few new twists, including a function key row that changes app by app.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is a great executive-class ultrabook.

Slim. Speedy SSD. 1,600 by 900 resolution screen. Great keyboard. Dual pointing devices. Comes with QuickLaunch Start Menu replacement.

Mid-pack battery life. Limited I/O ports. Ethernet requires dongle. Sealed battery.

COMPARISON TABLE Compare the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch with several other laptops side by side.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch review

 

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.
