Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 Review: Sleek And Premium
Source: Hot Hardware English
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.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 review: all business
Source: Digital Trends English
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.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 review: The pinnacle of business productivity
Source: XDA Developers English
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.

100% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 (2022) Review
Source: PC Mag English
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.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 10) review: The best business laptop?
Source: Zdnet.com English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 10) is a stunning 14-inch laptop. Extremely well made yet still lightweight, with plenty of configuration options including mobile broadband, an excellent keyboard, great speakers and the 1080p webcam that's a necessity of modern working, it delivers on almost all fronts. The key disappointment is battery life, while some users may also find the wrist rest shallow and the trackpad on the small side. This is a premium-priced laptop, but if you can handle these issues, it's very much worth the outlay.

100% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 review: Quite simply the best compact business laptop
Source: It Pro English
The new 10th generation ThinkPad showcases all of the family’s strengths: The superb and unique keyboard, the rock-solid construction, the minimalist but elegant styling, and the broad range of purchase options. Prices are on the steep side, but that’s nothing new for ThinkPads. The battery life may be more of a deal-breaker for you, but to be fair to Lenovo, that’s largely because Intel hasn’t managed to improve the efficiency of its processors to match improvements in performance. If you can look past the longevity, however, this laptop is a standout in virtually every other aspect.

Comment

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.
