Laptops May 23, 2018 Vikram Khajuria
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon speaks volume about what Lenovo has achieved in the last couple of years. It is distinct. The laptop may appear very skinny Thinkpad in the very first look, but the glassy keyboard will leave you amazed. Moving forward, you will soon realize the wondrous trackpad that has a very quick response. Both keyboard and trackpad compliment the thin, light, and powerful 14-inch laptop. The Carbon X1 isn't exactly a stunning laptop, it's a reliable ultralight business machine.
On a safer note, Lenovo recalled all the 5th Generation X1 carbon devices manufactured before November 2017 for safety purposes. As an unfastened screw was causing the fire in these units.
Herculean Yet Elegant
Thinkpads from Lenovo is always considered as the workhorse of every business house due to its performance and robustness. But ultraportable ThinkPad X1 has redefined the concept of class laptops. The machine is skinned with premium soft-touch chassis for an exemplary look.
The sixth-generation Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a flagship-class ultrabook that sports 14-inch display. Lenovo has offered a wide range of customization for its machine. You have the cushion of i5-7300U and i7-7600U, if you wish to jump above 8GB of RAM to max out at 16GB. With Intel 8th-gen processors, Carbon X1 can handle most of the productivity tasks. The laptop doesn’t come with dedicated graphics, therefore playing games or a 3D movie is not a great option. However, it won’t affect business users.
The touchscreen option is finally back on the new ThinkPad machine that was major missing in the previous models. The default display of this laptop comes with 1080p resolution, but that doesn’t hamper the screen when browsing the web and watching movies. Though, the display can be upgraded to higher-resolution 1440p model that includes Dolby Vision HDR.
As far as the connectivity is concerned, Carbon X1 packs two USB Type A connections, HDMI port, and two Thunderbolt 3–compatible USB-C ports, which can also charge the laptop. At the back side, a micro-SIM and micro-SD card are fixed.
I must say, the battery test was the most unexpected thing that we came across. In terms of business machines, no other even came close to ThinkPad X1 Carbon battery performance. The ultraportable was put through regular use, in which HD videos were played and internet was suffered, the end result was the endurance of almost 15 hours. The figures are best among ultraportable laptops.
When it comes to battery charging, you can fuel-up full power in less than an hour and a half, all accolades to Lenovo's quick-charging technology. That’s exactly what you expect from a machine like ThinkPad.
Lenovo has tried to perfectly balance ThinkPad durability with perfection. ThinkPad X1 Carbon with OLED screen and powerful performance has nailed the basics of a premium laptop. This laptop notches a perfect example of simplicity and excellence. The company has packed enough upgrades in this laptop that can make anyone fall for it. Especially those people, who crave for all-day battery life and comfortable keyboard.
On a bitter note, one has to go beyond the entry-level model to experience the HDR display. Still, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon falls in the top business laptops
Where to buy: MSRP $599.00
