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?
