Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 12 2024

 

Lenovo has honed this ThinkPad to excellence, but the price is downright silly.

Design remains second to none in the business laptop world. Thin, light, and elegant. Amazing keyboard. Dazzling screen.

Insanely expensive, particularly given somewhat lackluster performance. Middling battery life is particularly troubling.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 review: You can do better

 

I would be impressed… if it cost half the price

Sleek design ; Beautiful OLED display ; Bouncy keyboard ; Excellent performance

Pricey ; Display benchmarks should be better ; Small touchpad ; Below average battery life

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 could have been the greatest business laptop of 2024, but at over $2,000 it came up short of expectations with disappointing battery life and a tiny touchpad.

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...

Despite the battery life, I really enjoyed using the X1 Carbon. It has an understated look about it which is very traditional ThinkPad, but in a much slimmer design. It is very easy to carry around in a bag, and when you get where you need to go, there...

The 8th-gen X1 Carbon does enough to certify itself as a default choice for those looking for a more traditional laptop experience. The 8th-gen X1 Carbon does enough to certify itself as a default choice for those looking for a more traditional laptop...

10th-gen Intel processors ; Durable design ; Fantastic keyboard ; Great I/O selection

Battery life is underwhelming ; Audio sucks (unless you use headphones) ; All-black exterior can come off as extremely bland ; More demanding tasks will struggle

The 8 th -gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a perfectly suitable everyday laptop. It offers good performance, a decent screen, manageable battery life, a durable design, and plenty of IO. This makes the machine a good default laptop to consider. If all you...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review Tim Schiesser

 

Lenovo's signature business ultraportable is now in its 5th generation, adding new Intel Kaby Lake processors and a larger battery without sacrificing portability. And after using this laptop for a few weeks now, it's clear that Lenovo's minor...

Fantastic performance with class-leading battery life. Perfect selection of ports. Light and compact for a 14-inch laptop. Great keyboard and trackpad.

Expensive across entire hardware range.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review: The business notebook to beat

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a premium 14-inch business notebook geared toward the discerning business professional. It combines a no-nonsense design with top-end hardware, and provides just about everything you could want from an enterprise notebook.

Lightweight and solid construction ; Good battery life ; Wide range of connectivity options ; One of the best laptop keyboards on the market

Bottom-facing speakers can sound muffled ; No Thunderbolt 3 port ; Expensive

Then again, business devices tend to be priced a little higher because of their additional security and manageability features and access to a range of docking accessories, just look at the

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review

 

The ultrathin business laptop that sacrifices nothing

Smaller and lighter in every way ; Improved Microsoft Precision Touchpad ; Windows 10 Signature Edition cuts bloatware

Expensive

Lenovo refines the already excellent ThinkPad X1 Carbon, making it smaller and lighter, while cutting bloatware and adding more power with Kaby Lake processors.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) review

 

This high-end business Ultrabook struggles to sell its price tag

Excellent, reliable performance ; The very best keyboard and trackpad ; Thin and solid build quality

Paradoxically glare-prone anti-glare coating ; Still no SD card reader ; Unimpressive battery life

The Lenovo X1 Carbon offers reliable performance with a stellar keyboard, but short battery life and a glare-filled screen are two untenable problems.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook (2015 model)

 

It's a return to normal for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon's keyboard layout, and this alone is noteworthy

High-quality keyboard ; Solid build quality ; Great portability

An IPS screen isn't standard ; No SD card slot
