Lenovo Carbon X1

Are you considering buying a new laptop? Why not take a look at the Lenovo Carbon X1, Lenovo’s newest laptop? Better than the previous ThinkPad’s, you are sure to find some major upgrades and improvements in the Lenovo Carbon X1.


The ThinkPad uses a 7th Generation “Kaby Lake” Intel processor and has the Intel Core i7-7600U CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro, which means there is the bonus of having the BitLocker encryption software. The ThinkPad has a 16GB RAM, which is upgradeable by another 16GB.The battery is amazing, giving a life of more than 12 hours at a stretch.


The Lenovo Carbon X1is sleeker in appearance, as compared to the older models. The thickness has been reduced from 0.65 to 0.60 and it now weighs 2.49 pounds, as opposed to the earlier 2.60. As for the colors, you have the pick of black or silver. We recommend the black, purely because of the new soft-touch texture. With its soft, rubbery padding, handling will be an absolute delight. The keyboard is easy to use and comfortable to touch. With 1.5 millimeters of travel and 65 grams of actuation force, it’s a boon for any user. You will get the option of either a TrackPoint pointing stick or a touchpad for navigation. You will also find dual Thunderbolt 3 ports. With these, you can transfer data at speeds up to 5Gbps, connect multiple devices to each other and more.

Display and resolution

The Lenovo Carbon X1 also has a wonderful 13-inch screen. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 and highquality pictures are produced. The only disadvantage with the display is that it isn’t quite as luminous as you’d expect it to be.


While the front-mounted speakers are enough for watching movies or giving presentations, you will need an external speaker for bigger events.

How durable is the Lenovo Carbon X1?

The chassis of the ThinkPad is made of carbon-fiber and magnesium, which means it is pretty sturdy. The system is also designed to pass various MIL-SPEC tests.
