Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2017, Core i5-7300U

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) Review: Optimized Mobility
Source: Hot Hardware English
Regardless, going into a decision to pick up the 2017 ThinkPad X1 Carbon with these caveats in mind, we think most users will love this new Lenovo laptop for its great performance, excellent battery life, superb usability, and portability. Lenovo also continues to deliver the best laptop keyboard designs in the business, in our humble opinion. They're a refreshing, professional-grade departure from the all-too common and often uncomfortable chiclet style keyboard found on so many machines. The ThinkPad name has always meant "business," but also for the mainstream user that wants a well-built, high performance premium ultrabook, you can't go wrong with the new 5th generation Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) Ultrabook review: No touchscreen, but has everything else [UPDATED]
Source: Neowin English
If you're a fan of Lenovo laptops, you'll absolutely love the refinements and upgrades the company has made to the fifth generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The keyboard remains one of the best in the business, and the flexibility to use the TrackPoint or ClickPad to move your cursor, as well as having buttons both above and below the ClickPad itself, make using the device a pleasure. While individuals may not care about some of great security features, such as a quality fingerprint reader, a tamper-resistant TPM chip, and vPro, enterprise buyers will love them.

We knew the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon was winning material from the moment we started using it. Just about every aspect of this notebook is on point, and then some. It takes the hallmark features we expect from a ThinkPad, such as its excellent keyboard, touch pad, and pointing stick, and packs them inside a strong chassis just 0.6 inches thin. In addition, at a mere 2.5 pounds, this is one of the lightest notebooks you can buy.

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a video—a locally stored MP4 file containing the full The Lord of the Rings trilogy—with screen brightness set at 50 percent and volume at 100 percent until the system conks out.

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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


88.33%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
