We love Lenovo here at GadgetGestures and whenever we get our hands on a product of theirs, it’s party time! We can’t wait to review the Lenovo Yoga Tablet, but until then, we’ve got the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook and it is absolutely stunning. Let’s take a quick look at Lenovo’s latest gem.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Ask any Lenovo laptop user what they appreciate the most in their laptop and all of them will probably tell you that it’s the build quality. I mean, this notebook is built to meet the military’s standard for toughness. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon weighs only 3.15 pounds and is only 0.72-inch thick for the touchscreen model and 2.8 pounds and 0.69-inch thick if you configure the notebook without a touchscreen. That’s pretty awesome right there, isn’t it?
All the ports you’ll ever need are right there including a Gigabit Ethernet port and one USB 3.0. The standard model has a 14-inch, 1,600 x 900 panel, but if you think that’s not enough, then you can choose a higher resolution display (2,560 x 1,440 option is available). The trackpad and keyboard are stunning, but then again, Lenovo has always been badass with those two.
The battery life is really good, at around 6 hours, at least that’s what Lenovo is saying, but unlike other producers, we’re actually inclined to believe them. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a beautiful SSD made by Samsung, which reaches writing speeds of over 500 MB per second.
The starting price for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is $1,259 and you’re getting 4GB of RAM, 128GB of SSD with a display of 1080p. If you want the 2,560 x 1,440 display then you should shell out $1,359. We think that’s pretty OK, don’t you?
