90% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review: Gen 9 goes to 16:10
Source: PC World 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.

80% Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 9 Review: Ninth Time’S The Charm
Source: The Verge English
Apart from the dim screen (and the lack of an option brighter than 500 nits, when a number of business models now offer 1,000-nit options), the still-slightly-cramped touchpad, and the squeaky keyboard, I have very few complaints about this X1 Carbon. Its price is quite high, of course, so those nitpicks still do give me some pause. Lenovo’s new additions — particularly the 16:10 screen and the upward-firing speakers — are absolutely welcome, and they make the X1 Carbon Gen 9 unquestionably the best iteration of this device so far. It’s a formula Lenovo has perfected to a tee, combining the ThinkPad line’s world-class engineering with exactly the tweaks it needed to stay excellent in the modern market. While the X1 Carbon isn’t the best value for consumers, any deep-pocketed business shopper should give it a look.

If the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 had an OLED screen, we'd be tempted to shut down PCMag.com's laptop-review efforts for a while and say laptop technology had hit an unsurpassable peak. It's that good, a superlative aspirational system for anyone who can afford it. It leaves room for gaming notebooks and content-creation workstations to outperform it, but it virtually defines what a productivity PC or business ultraportable should be. This must be our least surprising Editors' Choice pick ever.

100% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 9) review: Flirting with perfection
Source: Laptop Mag English
For years, the X1 Carbon was so far ahead of its competitors that Lenovo simply released the same system with new internals. But the business laptop landscape has evolved and budding competition is keeping Lenovo on its toes. The X1 Carbon Gen 9 is the company's answer to those capable competitors. It adopts modern trends, including a 16:10 display, and combines them with the latest Intel processors and a larger battery. Those aren't groundbreaking changes, but they arrive on what is already one of the most refined platforms — for business users or regular consumers — on the market. Yes, there are excellent alternatives like the Dell Latitude 9420 2-in-1 and HP EliteBook x360 1040 G7, but the X1 Carbon remains the best overall package due in large part to the updates made in this latest model.

Lenovo's new 9th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon is an interesting machine to be sure. On one hand, it offered some of the best numbers we've seen from this new breed of ultralight Tiger Lake 11th Gen Intel Core-powered laptops, with chart-topping benchmark results virtually across the board. It also exhibited well-behaved thermals and acoustics, with what is obviously a well-design cooling solution on-board for sustained performance when plugged into the wall, and with relatively low fan noise.

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
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.

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!

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 9th Gen review – quad-channel memory and ultracompact body
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

87.4% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9 laptop review: The ePrivacy screen remains problematic | Notebookcheck
In our first tests, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9 still struggled with performance issues. After several BIOS updates, the performance is now stable, but also lower. The optional ePrivacy screen also remains problematic.

 

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.
