Hands on: Lenovo X1 Hybrid ThinkPad review: Hands-on

 

Battery-saving Instant Media Mode perfect for movie and music hounds

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 Yoga (2019) review: A perfect fusion of style and substance?

 

Is the 4th-gen ThinkPad X1 Yoga the version best yet, or should you save money and buy an older model?

Improved speakers ; IR camera and webcam ; Chassis is now smaller and lighter

Gets far too hot ; Seriously costly ; Distracting glossy display

Like the 2018 model, it still has thermal issues that hamper performance and make it uncomfortable to use on the lap. That 4K display is a drain on battery life, it still isn’t colour accurate and its new glossy finish only serves to distract. If you...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 review

 

Lenovo is aiming for a touch of style with its Lenovo ThinkPad X1 ultraportable, a laptop to take on the Apple MacBook Air - UPDATED 5 MARCH 2012

For corporate customers, familiar Lenovo fare such as spill-resistant keyboard, fingerprint reader and integrated 3G broadband may be useful. And ThinkPad old-timers will value the trackpoint mouse steerer. Against the best of the competition though,...

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 review

 

It's not often that we get excited about a laptop aimed primarily at business users, but Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 is an exception; the 13.3in ultra-portable might be less than 2cm thick, but it still squeezes in some clever features and plenty of high...

There are very few business-oriented ultra-portables with this much power and style, but the X1's battery life is disappointing and it's hugely expensive compared to the competition

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review

 

The ultimate business Ultrabook; Lenovo proves it knows what professionals want

Understandably for such a thin laptop, even by Ultrabook standards, the X1 Carbon is light on connectivity. Besides the two USB ports, 3.5mm combination audio jack and multiformat card reader, Lenovo has used mini DisplayPort for video output instead...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) review

 

Dripping with features that professionals will love, but the steep price is hard to justify

The big issue with the X1 Carbon is its staggering price. Just like the pricey HP EliteBook Folio 1020, you'll have to wave goodbye to a huge chunk of your IT budget if you want a fully-loaded model equipped with a high-DPI touchscreen.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Review

 

A robust business-class laptop

The recommended retail price of the X1 is R15,000 – likely to raise a few eyebrows for a device with no optical drive, very limited hardware customisability and a touchpad from hell.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 review

 

Sterling build and stunning performance, but the ThinkPad X1 is far from perfection

Yet, for a laptop that promises so much, it's impossible not to walk away from this laptop disappointed – with strong build tempered by poor design decisions, the ThinkPad X1 is a long way from perfection. Those with a soft spot for ThinkPad brand may...
