Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 NWK2PGE

80% Review Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
Smarter Business Laptop. With ThinkPad X1, Lenovo presents a compact business subnotebook with a 13.3" screen, current hardware and the familiar strengths that set it far apart from typical consumer notebooks. The glass pane covering the screen, on the other hand, is a step in the direction of consumer laptops.

For corporate customers, familiar Lenovo fare such as spill-resistant keyboard, fingerprint reader and integrated 3G broadband may be useful. And ThinkPad old-timers will value the trackpoint mouse steerer. Against the best of the competition though, this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 falls short in size, weight, longevity and build quality. And the glass screen is a retrograde step that seriously dimishes screen quality.

Despite the less than glorious screen resolution, in practice, I found the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 was really a pleasure to use. I’m simply a veteran ThinkPad user, there’s always been (at least) one in my Apple household, and I’m the sort of user who disables the TouchPad in the BIOS, preferring to use the TrackPoint. Because, as you know, TouchPads are for wimps.

The ThinkPad X1 is a tantalising combination of power and ruggedness that should appeal to anyone after a regular travel companion. It’s just a massive shame that the battery dies so fast, and usability isn’t as strong as we hoped.

Lenovo's thinnest and lightest ThinkPad laptop yet is a dramatic mix. Its build quality is even more impressive than usual, its backlit and spill-resistant keyboard is by far the best to be found on any ultraportable, it offers great connectivity, good specs and plenty of features. However, the X1 is a tad large for an ultraportable, its average screen doesn't jive with its premium positioning, and its battery life trails 13in rivals by quite some margin. If you can live with these issues it's a great machine, but many will be better off looking elsewhere.

Overall, you get almost everything you need, from performance, sturdiness through to the ports people actually need and useful extras like 3G. Nothing is arranged the way you're used to though, and the screen and battery life are slightly disappointing. We think X1 willl make a great business machine though, and business users will mind the price less, especially with the three year guarantee.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1: A Mean Black Machine
Source: Inside HW English
Just as we were beginning to think that the rumours of 13”-display notebooks’ shutdown were true, Lenovo issued the best possible denial, by demonstrating X1, the new, prestigious model. The notebook we’ve tested isn’t the final version, but it’s complete enough for us to be able to estimate how good the final product will be.

The ThinkPad X1 model we reviewed with its Core i5 processor and a traditional hard disk drive sells for a price of Rs 85,000, which isn’t exactly great value for money especially when you consider the performance you get. Models with better specs are also available. As a versatile computing machine that is going to last you a long time, this is definitely a good notebook by Lenovo. If you’re willing to settle for something a little thicker, you’re bound to get a better performing notebook, even a better configured ThinkPad for the same price.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is Lenovo's slimmest ThinkPad. Measuring 16.5mm at the thinnest point, it is filled with enterprise features that executives will appreciate greatly.

There’s no doubt that ThinkPad X1 is impressively thin, light and robust, but also very expensive compared to other ultraportable laptops. Despite all this, its disappointing battery life and temperamental touchpad make it frustrating to use. If you want an ultraportable laptop, the 13.3in MacBook Air or the Sony Vaio SB1V9E are better thanks to their far superior batteries.

In every other way, the X1 is close to perfection. So long as battery life isn’t a high priority, the X1 will serve as an excellent ultraportable. It’s thin, light, a pleasure to use and offers excellent performance. That's enough to earn it a Gold Award.

Those with a soft spot for ThinkPad brand may find room for forgiveness (and the three-year warranty is generous), but with the likes of the Sony VAIO S Series putting in a better all-round performance for much less cash, the ThinkPad X1 is a seriously tough sell.

It's easy to fall in love with the ThinkPad X1, and we haven't been able to escape its charms. Everything from its ultra-thin magnesium-alloy frame to its smooth rubberised shell and its contoured keys oozes class and sophistication. There's a lot to like here, but the machine isn't perfect and a few niggling issues detract from an otherwise stellar notebook.

Balanced against these points are the system's sturdiness, impeccable build quality, excellent software, impressive audio, strong design elements, and the combination TouchPad/TrackPoint. If you don't regularly find yourself on battery, the X1 may be your best choice for a thin, fairly light system with better performance than other systems its size.

There's a lot to love about the ThinkPad X1, even if it isn't quite thin or light enough to rightly join the ranks of Macbook Air competitors. It looks and feels great, is a joy to work on, boots fast, remains responsive even when multitasking, and has a really nice display. The audio quality and the Webcam are a cut above average, as well. If you don't need all-day battery life, it's an excellent choice. It's exactly the kind of thing a frequent-flyer businessman would want to stuff into his carry-on bag, provided he'll use it for less than 4 hours at a time. For users that demand all-day battery life, the external battery slice effectively eliminates the sleek size and weight that makes the system such an attractive prospect in the first place.

However, to an extent they are just different machines for different markets. OS preferences aside, if you want power, reliability and features, go for the ThinkPad. If you're after the most stylish looks or the longest battery life (without a slice), go for the MacBook.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 certainly provides a very high performance and stylish design for a 13-inch ultraportable. Thanks to the new Intel Core 2011 processors, the system is able to power through just about any task. It has a relatively small profile but it still lacks the portability of ultraportables. The biggest distraction for this 13-inch laptop is the battery which is just too small for the target market.

To be thin, in the world of laptops, is to be beautiful. We've seen this trend ebb and flow, such as when the MacBook Air and Dell Adamo first made their debuts a few years ago, and in a post-iPad world, thin is in again. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the thinnest ThinkPad ever made, and it's a slim, cleanly designed 13-incher worth a look for business travelers--but it's not as thin as a MacBook Air, and its battery life isn't as good, either.

The ultimate businesss ultraportable, the ThinkPad X1 combines the best notebook typing experience ever with strong performance, a sleek design, great sound, and durability. However, the notebook isn't perfect. Business users who require more endurance will want to consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X220, which includes a nine-cell battery for $125 less. Those who want a lighter system with a better screen should consider the 13-inch MacBook Air. However, if you want the Rolls-Royce of business laptops, the ThinkPad X1 should be at the top of your list. Just make sure to get the battery slice.

As you can probably tell, we like the X1. A lot. It's as thin and durable as it is ergonomically sound, it performs briskly, and particularly thanks to those strong speakers, we can see people snapping this up even if their lives aren't scheduled around meetings and business trips. But for some people, that short battery life -- and, to a lesser extent, the glossy display -- could be heartbreaking deal-breakers.

If you're in the market for an ultraportable with full-size laptop performance, it's hard to beat the Lenovo ThinkPad X1. If you're a ThinkPad person, to see the X1 is to lust for the X1. It's large enough to offer a readable display, a decent sized trackpad and an excellent keyboard, yet it's impressively thin and light. The build quality is superb, and this ThinkPad should prove as durable as its brethren. The display might have literally been the weak point, but Corning Gorilla Glass saves the day. Honestly, for serious performance and rugged build quality, the ThinkPad seriously outperforms the MacBook Air and Samsung Series 9. It's only real competition at the moment is Lenovo's own ThinkPad X220, for those who don't mind going a little smaller. The X220 offers even better battery life and is even more portable.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Review – Performance, Comparisons and Video
Source: Notebooks.com English
The ThinkPad X1 shows a now look for Lenovo and includes a collection of features and design changes which exciting and new. Lenovo has been able to add to the ThinkPad features we love, like durability and an amazing keyboard, without compromising on why businesses choose to equip their employees with ThinkPads. The ThinkPad X1 shows that the company can adapt and bring consumer features like high end audio and backlit keys to the traditional ThinkPad line. Lenovo may still need a bit more time to perfect the mousepad, but the ThinkPad X1 is without a doubt the best ThinkPad we have had a chance to use. Hopefully we will see similar features and design cues make their way to the rest of the ThinkPad line of notebooks in the coming months. We already have Dolby Digital Home Theater v4 on the ThinkPad Edge lines, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see it arrive on more systems, hopefully with Backlit keys in tow.

While the X1 is a sleek and supersvelte machine that shouldn’t need any truth-stretching braggadocio, it makes you wonder if anyone is policing the marketing department.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Review
Source: Techspot English
Our price as reviewed is $1400, which seems to be carrying a small premium over similar machines. When compared directly with the X220, you are paying $100 extra for the same internal hardware, a larger but lower quality non-IPS display, a better keyboard and touchpad and a thinner (yet heavier) chassis. A similarly spec’ed Sony VAIO S can be had for around $200 cheaper, but the Sony adds a built-in optical drive and a basic discrete GPU. Meanwhile, the MacBook Air is similarly priced, is lighter and comes stock with a SSD, but still relies on the older Core 2 Duo processor series.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.75 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
