Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch 20A7-002DGE

84% Review Update Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch 20A7-002DGE Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Luxury for the executive level. Ultrabooks are normally designed for home users – but that's not always the case. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon, for example, targets affluent business customers who are willing to spend almost 2000 Euro (~$2800) for the top-of-the-line version. If this amount is money well spent is the subject of our review.

Intel HD Graphics 5000:

ULV integrated GPU (GT3) with 40 EUs (no eDRAM) found on certain Haswell processors.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4550U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5000 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
