We've had some time with the Thinkpad X1 Carbon and are amply impressed, but when it comes to making a final purchasing decision, we want to provide you guys with a broad range of reviews. Here you'll find a quick run-down of what the Thinkpad X1 Carbon costs, what the critics have to say about it, and what owners in our community have experienced. Despite the whole Superfish fiasco, Lenovo still makes a mean laptop.
Being 2.9 pounds and 0.6 inches thick, the X1 Carbon is well-suited for working on the road. The classic red tracking nub is dab smack in the middle of the keyboard, and clicking trackpad buttons have returned. You can get up to an i7 3.2 GHz processor and 8 GB of RAM if you need serious horsepower. 512 GB of SSD storage is available, depending on model. There's also an option for a fingerprint scanner if you're concerned about security, and touch access on the display. The 14-inch display starts at 1920 x 1080 and goes up to 2560 x 1440 with upgrades.
- Light, durable build quality
- Slim bezel
- Excellent keyboard
We Don't Like
- No SD card slot
- High price point
- Middling graphics performance with no 16 GB RAM option
If you're regularly on the road for business, the Lenovo X1 Carbon is hard to beat. Starting at $1,199.99, however, you'll need to have a budget for the best in class.
