Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9 FHD, i7-1185G7

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 review
Source: Tom's Guide English
Overall the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 is a solid mid-range laptop that’s perfectly suited for the average working person. Its performance all around is great, with an excellent battery and ventilation. It also has remarkably good speakers, especially when you consider its size. However, the webcam quality is average and the display is also a bit disappointing, as you can get competitive laptops that deliver more pixels at a higher brightness than the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 for roughly the same price. The Dell XPS 15, for example, can be configured with a gorgeous OLED display and competitive specs for roughly $2,400, which isn’t much more than what you’d pay for a kitted-out ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9. Still, it’s hard to beat a Lenovo ThinkPad when you want something that’s built for business. If you want an ultraportable with a comfy keyboard, good speakers and excellent battery life, this is a great choice.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review: Gen 9 goes to 16:10
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Nearly ten years old, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 has grown taller. Lenovo's flagship ThinkPad is still the same sleek, sturdy corporate ultrabook you may recall, but the manufacturer has ditched the 16:9 display ratio in favor of a 16:10 display that provides more room from top to bottom. The taller display gives you more room to work and requires you to scroll less through lengthy documents and long web pages. Lenovo also tweaked the display hinge, expanded the touchpad, improved the positioning of the laptop's speakers, and integrated the fingerprint reader into the power button. Inside, the laptop received the expected Intel update to the chipmaker's 11th-gen Tiger Lake chips. With its roomier display and other improvements, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon remains a top choice for business execs, even if its webcam is behind the times.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 9th Gen Quick Review: 16:10 display goes a long way
Source: On MSFT English
The X1 Carbon 9th Gen is a pricey proposition in most regards which adds to its enterprise cache. However, with improved GPU, memory and battery performance coupled with the intuitive 16:10 aspect ratio, the X1 9th Gen is well worth the yearly upgrade this time around.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review: A winner with big improvements
Source: XDA Developers English
Now, let’s talk about all of the good because there’s a lot that’s been improved with this year’s model. First of all, there’s a new display, which is 16:10. I’m digging the Privacy Guard panel, but there are UHD and regular FHD options too. The big deal is that the screen is bigger without having to make a bigger chassis. There’s also a larger touchpad, which I have mixed feelings on. I do love any time a touchpad gets bigger, but it really highlights the physical buttons and how much room they take up. Still, bigger is better.

80% Review: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (2021)
Source: Wired Magazine English Archive.org version
LENOVO'S X1 CARBON is one of the best laptops you can buy. At 2.5 pounds, it's lightweight, thin, and very portable. It offers plenty of power for most tasks, all-day battery life, and—unlike its competition—plenty of ports for all of your accessories. We're reviewed the Linux version of the X1 Carbon last year, and everything in this review applies to the updated version of the machine too. The main change to the 2021 X1 Carbon is the move to 11th-generation Intel processors. Oh, and the new, slightly taller screen, which now has a 16:10 aspect ratio, just like the Dell XPS 13.
