Carbon footprint. We compare our second more affordable Core i5 FHD SKU against the pricier Core i7 WQHD SKU to see if it's worth saving some few bucks for less pixels and performance power.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon: Price point and feature-set that will only appeal to a business user
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon series is not for everyone. There are affordable ThinkPad’s in the Lenovo lineup, but the X-series represents the premium segment. The premium can be attributed to the presence of the vPro processor. It offers better security features for instance over a regular Intel Core processor since the vPro processor based devices are used within an enterprise setup.

The QHD display is simply gorgeous. It caught our eye the first time we booted the machine up and never stopped impressing. Add it the rich detailed audio and you have a business machine that excels with media, making the X1 the ideal travel companion for the road warrior who faces the occasional spouts of downtime. The thin 2.6-pound frame feels great and is durable enough to take the wear and tear of the road. Add in the powerful specs and you have the complete package.

All in all, its good-sized 14-inch screen keeps the ThinkPad X1 Carbon from being an ultra-small status symbol (or being immune to the clod ahead reclining his seat when you're using it on an airline tray table) like the Apple MacBook$1,299.00 at Amazon orDell XPS 13.$1,749.99 at Dell But it's second to none in capability versus slimness.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon faces some serious competition, even within Lenovo's own overlapping lineup where the ThinkPad X1 Yoga and ThinkPad T460s beckon. The X1 Yoga brings a 360 degree hinge, touchscreen and a Wacom pen for $300 more. The T460s is priced similarly to the Carbon, but it's a wee bit thicker and heavier at 3 lbs. vs. 2.6 pounds.

With its slick and slim design, Lenovo's fourth-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon ($1,533.60, as tested) is the kind of business laptop you'll gladly show off around the office. It retains the features that we like, including a thin, yet sturdy carbon fiber and magnesium construction, a good selection of I/O ports, and that excellent ThinkPad keyboard. On top of this, it's faster, has a higher-resolution screen, packs a longer-lasting battery, and is a half pound lighter than last year's model£1,133.54 at Amazon. While the latest laptop lacks a touch screen, it does ring up for $300 less.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 20FB-005XUS is an ultrabook for travellers and business users. The chassis made from magnesium and matte carbon fibre looks professional, fantastic and it is resistant to both depressions and twists. The laptop comes pre-installed with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit edition and it is powered by a 2.4 GHZ Intel Core i5-6300U processor along with an Intel HD Graphics 520. It has 8 GB DDR RAM and 256 GB Samsung SSD for storage. Its anti-reflective 14-inch IPS display features Full HD resolution and provides clean and crisp images without glare.

The backlit keyboard is spill resistant and the touchpad features good gliding traits, precision and feedback. No DVD drive is included, but the connectivity is plentiful with three USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, a MicroSD card reader and a 3.5 mm audio jack. For security, the laptop comes with a Kensington Lock slot and a fingerprint reader to prevent theft and sensitive information from prying eyes. The front-facing webcam features a 720p resolution and fixed focus. The laptop only weighs 1.189 kg and has a battery life of up to 6:51 hours when surfing with Wi-Fi.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

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.

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.


83.93%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
