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 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 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...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 review: Pure class

 

The 7th-gen Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon makes a number of changes to its predecessor. It's thinner and lighter, which brings some compromises in the keyboard and battery life, and it offers a wider range of displays including an excellent 4K option....

In its 7th generation, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is classier than ever

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 (2019)

 

With a sturdy, lightweight carbon-fiber exterior, an excellent keyboard, and plenty of security and manageability features, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is the best laptop you can buy for your business.

Thin, light, and very sturdy. ThinkPad-typical comfortable keyboard. Long battery life, as configured with 1080p screen. Many screen options. Optional Intel vPro. Full-size HDMI output.

Small touchpad. Requires (not-included) Ethernet adapter.

Bottom Line: With a sturdy, lightweight carbon-fiber exterior, an excellent keyboard, and plenty of security and manageability features, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is the best laptop you can buy for your business.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review: Exotic Case, Ho-Hum Screen

 

Lenovo is justifiably proud of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultraportable laptop. The machine is incredibly thin—just 0.7 inch at its thickest point—and the chassis is built with carbon fiber, resulting in an Ultrabook that ships with a 1600-by-900-pixel LCD...

Good keyboard and choice of pointing options ; Integrated 3G cellular broadband

LCD panel seems dim and a little washed out ; Limited port selection

Lenovo's X1 Carbon offers an understated look and exotic chassis material, but the LCD panel display quality could be better.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1

 

The technology press has lumped Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 into a growing category of Macbook Air competitors, but now that I've used one for awhile, I can tell you it doesn't really belong there. Though the X1 is the thinnest ThinkPad ever, it is still...

Very solid construction ; Thin and relatively light

poor battery life ; glossy screen

If the battery only lasted a couple hours longer, this would be the must-have business traveler's laptop.
