Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch 20A8-003UGE

83% Review Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch 20A8-003UGE Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Experiment.. The 2013 edition of the X1 Carbon came pretty close to a rating of "very good". Still, Lenovo has not stopped improving its premium ultrabook series, adding a WQHD IPS panel to the 13-inch device while also improving its battery life and implementing new input devices / ports. Is this enough to eradicate the few remaining issues?

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a true high-end laptop with the price to match. You could argue that Lenovo has tried too hard to innovate with the OLED touch panel likely to turn off some fans of the no-nonsense ThinkPad approach. Changes to the keyboard will irritate too, but ultimately the things people tend to appreciate about ThinkPads are still here, and solid improvements have been made over last year's model.

While the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch (2014) is still a very well-built business laptop with a light and durable design and performance for all of your work needs, the new model makes some big changes, and they aren't all winners. The new keyboard layout and rotating touch-sensitive function bar may put some users off, and the battery life is disappointingly short. If the slimmer design and better-than-HD display are features you crave, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch (2014) is hard to beat, but for similar performance without the revamped keyboard, and with significantly longer battery life, the Editors' Choice Lenovo ThinkPad X240 is still our top pick for mid-range business ultrabooks.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

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.  


4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.
