Business laptop smiling, Lenovo’s X1 carbon packs a lot of performance and battery life in a thin and sexy carbon fiber chassis. Starting in $ 5 519, the 6th Generation X1 carbon maintains the best keyboard and colorful display of its predecessor, but the Intel 7th general dual-core processor has dramatically on the performance of the previous model, up to eight general, quad-core CPUs Makes it better It runs eight cylinders injection from four cylinders. Throw some new design elements, popping eyes in HDR screen and far-field microphones, and this luxury laptop can bestow the best production-generator system.

Editor’s Note (7/27/18): As long as we still recommend X1 carbon, we have come to know the quality control issues that users can experience. We personally found the board and / or screen problems of three different purchased units, and other users have reported the problems with the Chaseus. We are not sure how the issues are wide. However, if everything is expected, X1 is one of the best carbon laptops you can buy.

Design

If this is not a break, do not fix it – Just jazz it a bit. You can get the cheapest 14-inch laptop, the 6th-Gen ThinkPad X1 is the same, slim dimension (12.7 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches) and 2.5 lbs in carbon, with laptops instantly Is. He also has the same, luxury soft touch lid and deck, which gives and wraps your wrist against laptops.

However, Lenovo has made some fine changes in branding. The ThinkPad logo appear on the deck, are generally black instead of silver. And there is a modern red red and gray X1 logo on the bottom left corner. Although our X1 carbon review unit was a traditional thinking pad, a laptop is available in a black silver color, which does not have the same soft touch structure.

The X1 carbon is very light that compared to the smaller, 13-inch display, tourists also liked it. This ThinkPad is less than 0.16 pounds from XPS 13 9370 (2.65 pounds), the MacBook Pro is less than 0.51 pounds delalutrient 7390 (2.9 pounds) compared to 13 inch (3 pounds) and 0.4 pounds trimmer. Attributed, 0.6 inch thickness of X-1 carbon, makes this machine a chunkier from XP 13 (0.46 inches), but the deal is only with three-ports, while Lenovo’s laptop has some full size USB 3.0 Shows the room for connectors.
