It looks like Infinix will be sticking with older Intel Ice Lake CPUs for yet another year like to keep prices at more affordable levels. The display remains excellent with its >90 percent sRGB coverage even if it suffers from more noticeable ghosting.

The launch windows between the original Infinix InBook X1 Pro and newer InBook X2 can be measured in months instead of years. Nonetheless, the manufacturer managed to introduce a brand new chassis that's lighter, thinner, and smaller than the original while maintaining the same 14-inch screen size. The improvements to portability, webcam quality, and keyboard shouldn't be understated, but a few other aspects remain the same or have become even worse that users should be aware of.

Firstly, the InBook X2 utilizes the exact same Intel 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 CPU as on the original InBook X1 Pro. Thus, users shouldn't expect any performance differences between the two models. Usually, newer models from other manufacturers would come with faster processors as an extra incentive for users to upgrade.

The second disappointing aspect of the InBook X2 is the slow black-white and gray-gray response times. It appears that Infinix has switched panel providers for the InBook X2 and so response times are measurably slower this time around. Expect some more ghosting when playing or streaming games to the main display of the system.

Lastly, the InBook X2 is louder and with shorter battery life than the InBook X1 Pro. The reduced weight and size may have had an impact on the cooling solution and battery capacity of the system.
