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 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...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1

 

Despite the similarity to an increasing number of ultra-slim notebooks, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 stands out from the crowd – especially for ThinkPad fans. Practical is the X1's middle name, along, perhaps, with pricey -although this depends from whom you...

Sturdy and practical, fast-charge battery, backlit keyboard, built-in 3G

Glare around the screen, unimpressive battery life, annoying port cover

Practical is the X1's middle name, along, perhaps, with pricey -although this depends from whom you buy it. The choices Lenovo has made won't suit everyone though, and at this price you start to resent something that would be a mere quibble on a...

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.
