Thank heavens the sale configuration comes with 16 GB of RAM instead of just 8 GB of RAM. The new price is a bit lower than a Dell Latitude 14 or HP EliteBook when both are configured with similar specifications.

Lenovo is currently hosting a sale on its 2021 ThinkPad X1 Carbon with the latest Intel Tiger Lake-U CPU. Users must apply the coupon code 'THINKSHOWER' at checkout to see the final price. The Evo-certified laptop is most notable for its 16:10 aspect ratio display as opposed to the usual 16:9 on most other systems in the market.

Other key features include Windows 10 Pro instead of Home, a relatively bright 400-nit IPS display, 16 GB of RAM, and Thunderbolt 4 support. There's no question that this is a loaded high-end Ultrabook even for the sale price of $1400 USD.

Unfortunately, we've yet to review this laptop and so we can't share any personal experiences. Based on our time with last year's 2020 model, however, users will likely appreciate the speakers and keyboard while despising the limited upgradeability and lack of both RJ-45 and an SD card reader. Users should also keep in mind the short one-year limited warranty and that the sale configuration does not include WAN.

  • Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU w/ integrated Iris Xe graphics
  • 14-inch IPS display, 400 nits, 1920 x 1200, anti-glare, non-touchscreen
  • 16 GB LPDDR4x-4266 (Soldered and not upgradeable)
  • 512 GB NVMe SSD (removable)
  • 2x USB-C w/ Thunderbolt 4, 2x USB-A 3.2, HDMI 2.0, 3.5 mm combo audio
  • 14.9 x 314.5 x 221.6 mm
  • 1.13 kg

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
