  • Summary: Starting at $1,899.00 without an SSD, the top ThinkPad X1 Carbon carries with it a decent price jump from its $1,329.00 entry level variant. With a faster CPU, higher resolution screen offering touch capabilities and more RAM, it comes as little surprise.

  • Conclusion: Still, we have no doubt that business users who spend a lot of time on the road will love the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon. If you're looking for a thin and light ultrabook that doesn't skimp on performance or durability, the Carbon should be at the top of your list.

Review Update Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch 20A7-002DGE Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Luxury for the executive level. Ultrabooks are normally designed for home users – but that's not always the case. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon, for example, targets affluent business customers who are willing to spend almost 2000 Euro (~$2800) for the top-of-the-line version.
  • Pros: light and sturdy chassis, very quiet, large ClickPad, integrated UMTS modem, backlit keyboard, input devices offer great feedback, good viewing angle stability (90°), very good battery life, spacious SSD with 512 GB capacity, semi-matte touch display, HDMI & Ethernet via dongle, Gone are the clun...
  • Cons: very high price, integrated touchpad mouse buttons, webcam quality is marginal, lacks true Fn-keys, Innovation can also have its drawbacks: the redesigned touchpad without dedicated buttons and the rather unusual Fn function-row is going require a serious adjustment period for long-term ThinkPad ...
