Engadget Review

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has everything we'd want in a business ultraportable. It's sturdy, fast and light. You'll just have to pay a bit extra to get the best display and newest features.

Pros
  • Durable build quality
  • Thin and light design
  • Best in class keyboard
  • Fast and reliable performance
Cons
  • More expensive than standard ultraportables
  • HDR screen costs extra
  • No major design changes since last year
