Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G5-20HR0021G

90% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review
Source: Techspot English
The main issue with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is its price. The entry level model – which includes a Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD – costs $1,329, which is quite expensive for the hardware you get. Competing consumer-oriented laptops include this sort of hardware for closer to $1,000. Configuring the ThinkPad X1 with more beefy hardware can quickly send the cost skyrocketing, with a Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD costing nearly $2,500.

Lenovo's 2017 X1 Carbon is a mixed bag
Source: Reg Hardware English
This year's X1 Carbon is a typically slick device, albeit one that revealed some worrying wobbles when we took it on the road. None were show-stoppers, but in your correspondent's experience PCs hardly ever go better after they've been carried around and used hard for a couple of years.

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, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.
