Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch

 

A 14-inch business laptop that charges to more than 70% in just 30-minutes.

Excellent performance ; Stylish, compact design ; Extremely fast charge times ; Ruggedly built to last

Poor screen quality for the price ; Expensive

On the plus side, the bezel around the edge is nicely thin allowing for more screen real estate (though the top and bottom sides are slightly thicker for a ‘letterbox’ style appearance), it has decent viewing angles, and its touch functionality works...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

 

This ThinkPad takes the executive Ultrabook to new heights.

Stylish, light and sleek ; Superb backlit, spill-proof keyboard ; Durable soft-touch finish ; Powerful specs ; Good high-res screen

No Ethernet port ; Screen panel still TN

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is everything the original X1 should have been. Though its TN screen doesn’t quite match up to the premium style, build and features of this stunning Ultrabook, in every other regard it’s easily the best business...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Hybrid

 

Can the presence of a secondary processor and OS add more than just extra battery life to the ThinkPad X1?

Video to follow shortly.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is being pitched as a classy and super-slim business machine to match Apple's svelte MacBook Air range of laptops. It's only a shame the poor battery life lets it down...

Ultra sturdy ; Great performance ; Screen

Terrible battery life ; Iffy usability ; Tight storage

The ThinkPad X1 is a tantalising combination of power and ruggedness that should appeal to anyone after a regular travel companion. It’s just a massive shame that the battery dies so fast, and usability isn’t as strong as we hoped.

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (7th gen) review

 

The long-lasting lightweight that'll help you escape the office

Light enough to lug anywhere ; Genuine all-day battery life ; Capable desktop performer

Design a little too restrained for non-business types ; No card reader ; Top-spec configurations are big money

This slim and light business-chic laptop has learned design lessons from the Dell XPS, but the X1 Carbon can't shake the boardroom completely

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (6th gen 2018) review: HDR screen makes for sometimes sensational laptop

 

The Lenovo X1 Carbon 2018 comes with the option of a high dynamic range screen. It's a business laptop dream, with some HDR creme, but it costs a lot.

HDR screen option is bright and clean ; Tough magnesium alloy frame and different 'business casual' lightweight carbon design ; 4G/LTE support for on-the-go working

Undeniably expensive ; Battery life should be better ; HDR screen backlight not uniform (shows in dim conditions) ; Nipple trackpad's presence won't appeal to all

The ThinkPad Carbon X1 does everything it should for your business and pleasure needs. It's slim, tough, lightweight, more powerful than before and offers features no other laptop can, including a keyboard that's the pinnacle of typing. However, it's...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook

 

Lugging around a hefty laptop can feel like a bag full of rocks over the shoulder. Not so with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, a carbon-fibre chassis laptop with a 14-inch screen that weighs in at 1.4kg. Although it's fairly pricey considering what's...

Tough carbon finish, trackpad feels great, backlit keyboard is comfortable for long typing periods, thin and light

The screen’s pixels are visible and headache inducing, it’s pricey, no Ethernet port, ThinkPad logo too prominent, not as light as some competition, pricier than a MacBook Air

Although it’s fairly pricey considering what’s under the hood, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a lot going for it. It’s tough, thin, light and, ignoring the twice-used ThinkPad logo that mars an otherwise attractive exterior, is an understated...
