Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3

89.5% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 laptop review: Intel Core-P at under 1 kg | Notebookcheck
The ThinkPad X1 Nano is back for a third year in a row with the exact same chassis design as its first generation launch. It remains one of the lightest and most portable subnotebooks in the market, but the compromises to performance are still alive and well.
80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 review: Nano changes, but still a powerful portable
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 is hardly an exciting laptop. It’s got the same black and red color scheme as every ThinkPad before it. It still has a TrackPoint pointer stick in the middle of the keyboard and discrete buttons on the trackpad. It may just be the least interesting laptop you could ask for. But that’s kind of the draw. The ThinkPad X1 Nano is an ultraportable business laptop designed to work well in any environment and keep your data secure while doing so. The hardware is perfectly serviceable for its use case and the understated design is perfect for taking to business meetings because it easily blends into the background. The only disappointments with the third generation of the Nano are the lack of ports, the small trackpad (which is at least a bit larger than the original), and the tinny audio. But if you need a powerful ultraportable laptop, you could do far worse than the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3.

The Lenovo Yoga 9i is the ultimate student, everyday carry, and even creator laptop (in regards to Photography, Art, and Design). Now it can also double as a business laptop no doubt, however, if you’re looking for THE business laptop of the year you would be wise to consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3.

The LIGHTEST Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 // Perfect On-The-Go Business Laptop

This is the lightest laptop I've ever reviewed from Lenovo. The ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 is so beautiful, durable, and light. It really brings together everything ThinkPad is aiming to accomplish.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 Review
Source: PC Mag English
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 marks another step forward for the company's superb ultraportable line, making it a smart choice for business professionals on the go. We especially love the premium design, which mixes space-age materials to produce a surprisingly rugged ultralight portable without skimping on business features or the hands-on experience. The Nano does drop some ports that will be missed by many, and we wish its battery life was longer, but these are reasonable compromises to make for extreme portability. If you want a featherweight laptop that's still a workhorse for office or travel, you could do a lot worse than the ThinkPad X1 Nano. Regardless, its slightly heavier cousin the X1 Carbon remains our business ultraportable pick, offering more ports and screen options and better features with only a few more ounces in weight.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 Review - Super lightweight Windows laptop

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 review: the lightweight champ returns to the office
Source: Techradar English
All this brings me to maybe the biggest knock I have with this laptop, namely Lenovo's insistence on sticking with the Intel P-series mobile processors rather than the more energy efficient U-series for the X1 Nano. What you're going to be able to do on this laptop could easily have been achieved with a comparable U-series chip and it could have helped stretch the rather svelte battery a little bit farther. Still, those complains aside, the only other negative of note is that this is still a pretty expensive device for what it ultimately is: a productivity machine. Given that competing laptops for business users can get comparable performance for less and not have to really give up too much in the portability category means this is really best for those who value the portability of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 over every other consideration. For that, though, you'll be hard pressed to find better just about anywhere.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano review (2023 Gen 3 model, Intel 13th-gen Core P)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The sheer portability of this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is amongst the best out there. This is not only super light, but also well built – a combination rarely found. It’s also very quiet and a fine performer when running light tasks such as web surfing and typical office apps. This is nonetheless low-power laptop, though, and won't last for very long on a charge either, due to its small battery. But if you're looking for a lighweight daily driver and aim for a mid-level configuration, this might be a fair-value option for you.

This Lenovo ThinkPad is so close to being the perfect ultraportable laptop
Source: Zdnet.com English
With all these high-tech computers sporting the latest tech, it can be difficult, even a little overwhelming, to find the right laptop for you. Sometimes you just want something simple. You don't need a beefy gaming laptop with the latest graphics card or a MacBook sporting a new chip. You may want a laptop that's easy to use and can handle a full day's work without too much trouble.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 Review: A Fine Formula For Work
Source: Slashgear English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 won't flip the script on lightweight workstations — the Gen 1 did so already — but it's an evolution on a winning formula. It's still easy to throw into a briefcase (a gentle slide will suffice, though), it won't weigh you down (even though it's gained a bit of weight with each successive generation), and it'll handle all of the tasks you ask of it. The 13th-gen Intel Core i7 and excellent touchscreen are a couple of the features that'll make work seem like fun for the power user on the go, which is who this laptop is for in the first place. There are few competitors to the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3, mainly the Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 and the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. The former beats it on price by around $100, though it also has a 256 GB SSD. The latter, meanwhile, starts at $1,399 and packs a 1 TB SSD, but makes do with a 12th-gen Intel Core i7.

78% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano review: Slim and fast, but short on battery life
Source: PC World English
The Lenovo X1 Nano is a good option for business professionals, frequent fliers, and other on-the-go users who don’t want the burden of a large, heavy laptop. The X1 Nano is both small and light yet it still offers an excellent keyboard and speedy processor performance. Battery life is the laptop’s most serious flaw, and it could prove a problem if travel often leaves you without access to a power outlet. If you can work around that problem, though, the X1 Nano will prove a capable, portable machine.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 review: tiny — and a little stale
Source: Digital Trends English
Although its design hasn’t changed and seems a bit dated to me, and its battery life is poor, there’s a lot to like about the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3. It performs well and will keep up with demanding productivity workers, and it’s incredibly light and comfortable to carry around. Its display was pleasant to use as long as I wasn’t too worried about really wide colors, which as a writer I’m not. I’ll give it a recommendation, primarily based on its light weight. And certainly, traditional ThinkPad lovers will gravitate toward the laptop. Just note that there are several other good options to consider, including the Dell XPS 13 Plus that feels a lot more modern.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-1360P: Raptor Lake-P based CPU with a TDP of 28 Watt. Offers 4 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores and therefore 16 threads.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.00":

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


79.69%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
