When it comes to productivity and content creation tasks, this machine's performance results were fairly close to what one should expect from this class of machines. Some of its scores were near top of the pack, while others, especially gaming, were a middling showing. While you can run some lower end games and more casual titles, don't expect this machine to replace your dedicated gaming device. It's primarily a business class ultralight after all. In terms of thermals, the X1 Carbon stays relatively cool under normal conditions, and is even bearable to have on your lap under a full work load. When under that full load, the laptop is relatively quiet as well, with an unoffensive fan pitch. In short, you will not be disappointed if you opt for the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 for your next laptop for business, home or school. Its high quality build should provide for many years of use, and you are getting all this machine's extra features, such its Trackpoint, 1080p webcam, reasonably good port options (sans the missing nano SIM or microSD card slot) and its fantastic keyboard.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 is a well-built and highly configurable laptop with options for the kind of management and security that businesses crave. For that audience, it’s a solid offering at a fair price. For anyone else, the ThinkPad’s performance is lacking and it doesn’t offer as much to justify its high price. ThinkPad fans will love it, but other mainstream buyers should do their shopping first.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a premium laptop from Lenovo’s flagship X1 range, but it is a full range, so let’s make sure you’re picking the right one. If you want something you can turn into a tablet, there’s the ThinkPad X1 Yoga to look at. But if you’re looking to go beyond productivity, there’s also the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. Lenovo has something for everyone.

In the battle of ultimate ultraportables, the XPS 13 seems to get a few more media outlets' votes as El Laptop Supremo than the X1 Carbon does. We beg to differ: The Dell is fantastic and less expensive, but the Lenovo's screen is half an inch bigger; it weighs a few grams less despite its MIL-STD 810H construction; and it has six ports instead of two. Unless you're looking for an ultra-performance gaming rig or workstation, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 is the best notebook you can buy.
