Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Moreover, the laptop sports a lightweight frame (1.12 kg, roughly 2.5 lbs) yet is quite durable. The lid is carbon fiber, while the body features magnesium alloy. As its thickest, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon features 14.95 mm. Put together, you have a surprisingly tough machine that you can take with you everywhere you go.
And arguably, our favorite aspect of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon has to be the stunning “WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution) IPS touch screen with a matte finish and 400 nits of brightness.” The matte coating allows you to work outside thanks to its anti-glare properties. Also, having a touchscreen enhances the laptop’s usability.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is an excellent pick for anyone looking for a trusty work computer.
