Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G4-20Y5000SUS
The X1 Extreme Gen 4 is far from the perfect performance notebook. It's not a complete loss (especially if you're willing to get your hands dirty) but there's plenty of work to be done to make it into something workable performance-wise.

This is a livestream recording of testing (and impressions-based reviewing) the X1 Extreme Gen 4 and the Schenker Vision 14. Most of this stream is the X1E with 30 mins of it being the VISION. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme was purchased with my own money. Schenker/XMG provided me with a sample of their VISION 14 laptop at no cost to me. The opinions expressed here are my own and are not limited or influenced in any way by any sponsor or manufacturer. The VISION 14 is a loaned-out sample and not provided as a form of compensation.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
