Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9-20XW005JGE

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 Review
Source: Think Computers English
As things slowly get back to normal (depending on where you live) we are travelling more, working from coffee shops, and much more. With this I have been looking for a thin and light laptop that will serve my needs. While I have a massive 17-inch gaming laptop it is not the easiest to travel with and forget taking it down to the local coffee shop! I just want something that I can easily throw in my backpack, is not all that heavy, and can handle my daily needs of running this website as well as photo and video editing. Enter the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9, a 14-inch thin and light laptop with a carbon fiber and magnesium alloy chassis that weights in at only around 2.5 lbs! Lenovo sent us over the 20XW004DUS model which features an Intel Core i7-1165G7, 16GB DDR4-4267 memory (soldered), a 512GB NVMe SSD, and a 14-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS display. Let’s take a look and see what the new Gen 9 ThinkPad X1 Carbon is all about!

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
