Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon N3N34GE

87% Review Update Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Business on-the-go. Lenovo blows its own horn and even speaks of a "legend" in connection with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon in which 20 years of development have been invested. Regardless of any sympathies, very interesting key specs remain: 1.3 kilograms (2.87 pounds), a bright 14-inch screen, and full business compatibility. Is that enough to become a legend?
Small, but powerful

Like we’ve already mentioned, ThinkPad X1 Carbon is intended for users who are often on the move. It’s rather sturdy, made out of somewhat better materials and during the production process, the manufacturer paid attention to every detail. An excellent screen without any glare, a keyboard with backlighting, everything is as it should be.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is an executive's dream laptop. It is made with the same carbon fiber that makes his golf club shafts so light and strong. It's nice to look at and is comfortable to use. It's got the power to do real work, from shredding through large spreadsheets to proofing webpages. However, it falls short of the I/O port count and battery life set by the more economical Dell Latitude 6430U, so that system holds on to the Editors' Choice. But if you have the extra bucks to shell out for the X1 Carbon Touch, you'll find it to be a good companion on your day-to-day business dealings, particularly if you're meeting with another company you're looking to acquire.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review

Much as Mark Rosewater can't go a month without mentioning how he used to write for "Roseanne," I have a hard time not mentioning my background in video production. The reason to bring it up with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is simple: whether you're a hobbyist or a professional in any kind of content creation field, you have a pretty good idea of what "prosumer" means.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
