The ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th gen is only available with non-touch displays, but the good news is that these are the best quality X1 Carbon display yet, available in FHD and QHD resolutions— both are matte, have 300 nits brightness and full SRGB coverage. The laptop weighs 2.6 lbs. (1.2 kg) and is 0.65” (16.5mm) thick. It has a carbon fiber and glass fiber casing and a magnesium roll cage inside.

The laptop is available with 8 or 16 gigs of RAM and your choice of SATA-3 or PCIe NVMe M.2 SSDs. It has a backlit keyboard, TrackPoint and an ample array of ports including USB 3.0, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, Ethernet via included dongle adapter, an SD card…

  1. Bought X1 Carbon laptop 1.5 years ago – 20a7 CTO1WW . Integrated Graphics Card died couple weeks ago.Spoke with support. Have to buy 1200$ new motherboard. Amazing low quality

  2. Dear Lisa,
    thank you very much for your channel. I´ve been watching it for some time and really like your way of presenting the hardware. No unnecessary loud music and other stuff that annoys your viewers. You speak very clearly and it´s a pleasure to listen to you.
    Keep on going.

  3. Great review, thanks! l especially liked the little comparison between the different models you made at the end. Shame you didn't mention the X260 (12,5'' screen). l'm trying to decide between these two…

  4. Hi Lisa! Love your reviews, would love it if you could do a review on the Lenovo Thinkpad 13 with 1080p screen and Windows installation? Asking because I'm looking into purchasing one for college and since it has one of the best price to weight, screen resolution, keyboard (can already conclude that – it's a Thinkpad) ratio in Europe (prices of Carbon X1 are ridiculous here). It would be great to know the downsides of the laptop beforehand!

  5. Hey! I just ordered one of these with 8 gigs ram, 3.1 GHz I7, and 512 SSD for use in college next year. I have been using a Y400 (2013) and wanted a lighter laptop with faster boost times that will still retain some of the performance of the Y400. My question is this, for light gaming, how does the X1 Carbon compare with the Y400? I'm just a bit concerned about the lackluster GPU when compared with the Y400's NVidia

  6. Today I bought my first X1 Carbon ThinkPad, I chose the 3rd Gen i5 over the 4th Gen i5 (not many vendors have 3rd Gen left in stock) as I find the design details of the 3rd Gen to be better IMO, plus its cheaper, which is always a bonus.

  7. I love your videos Lisa you are really honest and detailed with your reviews would you possibly do one on the HP envy 13 inch d010nr I feel like most reviews of it are biased against HP overall and I think you would do great.
