Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon-20BS0068PB

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Source: Hexus English
Which is the best Ultrabook that money can buy? The ThinkPad X1 Carbon remains one of the most formidable mobile PCs available. Beautifully designed and conforming to Intel's Ultrabook directive, it is in many ways the perfect realisation of how today's premium laptops should be constructed.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) review
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo X1 Carbon, outfitted with a top end processor, outpaces both Apple and Dell's thin laptop offerings. But the difference in benchmark scores isn't large enough to warrant paying an additional 300 to 600 bucks for this premium business Ultrabook.

Comment

Model: The extremely thin and light Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon-20BS0068PB is a professional laptop that oozes class and style. Maintaining the important productivity features such as the famous, spill-resistant ThinkPad keyboard, the UltraNav glass surface touchpad and the TrackPoint, the laptop is a perfect on-the-move device. The sleek laptop feels solid in hand with the ability to open the display to 180 degrees. Display on the device is a 13 inch WQHD anti-glare IPS panel with optional touchscreen functionality. Besides looking great in the graphite black finish, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon-20BS0068PB produces gorgeous display sharpness and brightness.

Users can even select the Windows platform most beneficial to them ranging from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1. The hardware consist of an Intel Core i7-5600U processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Intel vPro Technology, up to 8 GB DDR3L RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 5500 GPU and several M.2 SSD storage options from 128 GB to 512 GB. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon-20BS0068PB also comes with a 720p HD webcam, dual noise-cancelling HD microphones, two USB 3.0 ports, the Lenovo OneLink connector, an HDMI out and a mini Display Port. Battery life on the laptop is awesome with the 8-cell Lithium-Polymer pack providing up to 9.9 hours of power.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


5600U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

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.

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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
