The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has never failed to impress. Now, the 9th generation of this product brings a display with a higher aspect ratio, resulting in more content able to be shown vertically. What this means is that data analysts, and developers will be happy. However, there is a downside to having such a display – battery life. Unfortunately, the laptop lasts for 9 hours of Web browsing, or 6 hours and a half of video playback. The latter is half the score we got from the 8th Gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon with a 1080p display. Nevertheless, arguably the biggest improvement year on year is the performance. Comparing Tiger Lake chips to Comet Lake-U CPUs is pointless in 2022, but still, you get a good amount of processing and graphics power inside one of the most compact business laptops on the market. There is one unfortunate thing, though – the memory is soldered to the motherboard. On the other hand, you can’t expect it to be different at 14.9mm. And to be fair, Lenovo offers options of up to 32GB of LPDDR4x RAM, working in quad-channel mode.
