Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2020-20U9005NUS

90% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (8th Gen) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The 8th Gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a minor update to an already fantastic laptop. The new 10th Gen Intel vPro CPUs deliver a slight performance boost, but not enough for me to recommend upgrading if you already own the 7th Gen model (especially the mid-cycle refresh with 10th Gen chips). If your business laptop is getting sluggish and it's time for a new one, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon should be at the top of your list. It has an ultraslim yet durable chassis, great display options, the best keyboard in its class and fast performance. The X1 Carbon also gets good battery life (on the 1080p model), although rivals like the Elite Dragonfly and ExpertBook B9450 last even longer on a charge. So although the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 8th Gen is practically identical to the previous version, it maintains its position as the best business laptop on the market — at least, for now.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i5-10310U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.7 and 4.4 GHz with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB. The CPU supports the professional management features under the vPro umbrella.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14":

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.

1.09 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. 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.


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
