Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 2 review: Smallest X1 laptop ever

One of the lightest Core i7-1280P laptops. 450 nits, full sRGB colors, 16:10 aspect ratio, 5G Sub 6 WAN, and 12th gen Core P CPU all in a system lighter than 1 kg. Can you really fit all these features in a small 13-inch form factor without cutting corners?

One of the biggest complaints about the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 1 was its slow processor. While most other subnotebooks were running on full-fledged 28 W Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7 11th gen CPUs, the Nano Gen 1 was stuck with the 15 W i7-1160G7. The model may have been super lightweight, but it gave the sense that the low weight had a direct impact on performance levels. The new ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 2 addresses this issue by swapping out the i7-1160G7 for a proper 12th gen 28 W i7-1280P vPro option which should make the X1 Nano Gen 2 one of the fastest 13.0-inch business laptops, at least on paper.

Aside from the CPU upgrade, the Gen 2 model brings a few other changes including a higher resolution webcam, faster Wi-Fi, and 5G WAN support. The exterior design is otherwise identical to the 2021 Gen 1 model and so we recommend checking out our existing review to learn more about the physical features of the laptop.

Competitors in this space include other super lightweight 13-inch business laptops like the HP Elite Dragonfly G3, Dell Latitude 13 7330, LG Gram series, or the Dynabook Portege X30L.

Communication

The WLAN module has been upgraded from the Intel AX201 to the AX211 for Wi-Fi 6E support. We experienced no connectivity issues when paired to our 6 GHz network.

LTE 5G Cat 20 or 4G CAT 9 are optional WWAN upgrades. There will be a Nano-SIM slot if configured with the feature.

Webcam

Dell has updated the webcam from 720p on the Gen 1 model to 1080p for this year's Gen 2 version. The picture isn't as muddy as a result, but colors remain subpar.

Both IR and a physical webcam shutter come standard for privacy.

Maintenance

The bottom panel comes off easily with just a Philips screwdriver. The internals are mostly the same as the Gen 1 model save for the repositioned M.2 2242 SSD and other minor tweaks as shown by the images below.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box beyond the AC adapter and paperwork. A one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies which is disappointing considering the high starting price of the model. A 3-year coverage should have been standard.

Display

Our Gen 2 test unit utilizes a different IPS panel as the one found on the original Gen 1 version (P101ZFZ-BH2 vs. MND007ZA1-2). Nonetheless, their core attributes remain nearly identical for essentially the same viewing experience. Users are still getting a 450-nit panel with full sRGB coverage and >1000:1 contrast ratio. Black-white and gray-gray response times could be better, but this isn't an issue for browsing or office-type workloads.

The panel is not well calibrated out of the box. Calibrating it ourselves would greatly improve average grayscale and color deltaE values from 5.7 and 4.85 to just 2.3 and 1.22, respectively. We recommend an end-user calibration to better exploit the full sRGB coverage of the panel.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
25.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.2 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 51 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
43.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 21.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 66 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (35.9 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility and viewing angles remain mostly the same as on the Gen 1 model as Lenovo hasn't upped the brightness or contrast of the display for this year's model.

Performance

 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to "Best performance" mode via Windows prior to running any performance benchmarks below. It's recommended that users become familiar with the pre-installed Vantage software as many Lenovo-specific software updates and features like User Presence Sensing are toggled here as shown by the screenshots below.

Processor

CPU performance is a mixed bag. The high initial CineBench R15 multi-thread score of 2118 points is excellent, but this falls dramatically to 1485 points after the next consecutive run to represent poor Turbo Boost sustainability and steeper throttling than most other laptops. In fact, multi-thread performance can drop by as much as 48 percent when stressed as shown by our CineBench R15 xT loop test below. The Framework Laptop with the supposedly slower Core i7-1260P is able to outperform our i7-1280P over longer periods. In other words, users can enjoy the initial short burst of speed from the i7-1280P in the Lenovo before it falls off a cliff.

Despite its somewhat disappointing performance, our i7-1280P CPU in the X1 Nano Gen 2 is still handily faster than the Core i7-1160G7 in the X1 Nano Gen 1 by about 80 percent even after accounting for any throttling issues.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon reveals DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. 4K video playback at 60 FPS could have been better as well as we're able to record 56 dropped frames during our minute-long video test even when on the latest graphics drivers as of this publishing date.

Storage Devices

Our test unit comes equipped with the Kioxia KBG5AZNT1T02 PCIe3 NVMe SSD for maximum sustained read rates of up to 2700 MB/s. It's disappointing that there are no PCIe4 options at checkout considering the high price of the ThinkPad X1 Nano, but at least the model comes with a copper plate over the SSD to aid in heat dissipation.

Keep in mind that full-length 2280 M.2 drives are not supported.

GPU Performance

Graphics performance is decent in spite of the steep CPU performance throttling mentioned above. 3DMark scores are where they should be relative to other laptops with the same Iris Xe 96 EUs GPU, but throttling kicks in when running actual games. For example, frame rates when idling on Witcher 3 at the lowest 768p settings can be as high as 106 FPS during the start of the test before quickly falling to just 80 FPS a couple of minutes later as shown by our graph below.

Overall graphics performance is still faster than on last year's Gen 1 model by about 30 percent or so before accounting for any performance throttling.
