Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon : Gadget Review

Lenovo brings the latest iteration of its famous ThinkPad Carbon series of laptops which simply aims at providing an alternative between fashionable and business laptops. ThinkPad series has kept up with the successful trend of providing a slim and light weight laptop powered with cutting edge technology.

The Design And Feel Of The Laptop

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon weighs just above 1.3 Kg and has a thickness of 18.46 mm which makes its extremely easier to carry around. This is decent laptop which takes much of neither space nor does it is bulky enough to make it gruesome for rough handling.

Lenovo had provided a wide array of ports around its edges, the charger point, HDMI output, Mini-Display Port; two much needed USB 3.0 ports and a standard 3.55 headset socket. For internet connectivity via broadband service it provides for the Ethernet outlet. Unfortunately this laptop doesn’t have any card reader which some of its latest models possess SIM card slot to provide integrated 3G connectivity.

Multiple Choices Available In Terms Of Specifications and Software

Lenovo brings in multiple variants in the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon to fulfill the needs and demands of different consumers like before. The variant reviewed by us had the latest Intel Core i7 processor running at 2.4GHz and possessed an integrated Intel HD Graphics 5500. This was a high end laptop with an 8GB of RAM and a Solid State Drive (SSD) of around 256 GB out of which 216 was available for the users.

The best features feature of the laptop is its 10 point multi-touch support amazing 2560x1440 pixel Full HD screen. Using Windows 8 OS on this laptop gave a complete different feel with its attention to detail and crispness in picture display. On the connectivity front Lenovo has provided the standard Bluetooth v4.0 along with WiFi b/g/n as well as some of the models can work on 3g networks with SIM connectivity. The battery capacity is set at 50Whr which claims to give a run time of around 10.9 hours but within certain usage condition.

Lenovo has somewhat ruined the software appeal with presence unwanted pre installed software such as the PC App Store, Lenovo PC Experience and others. Even the preinstalled Norton Internet Security suite is quite bleak in nature and often bombards the user with register requests.

A Sublime and Robust Performance

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a flagship business laptop which as its predecessors provides a robust performance. The boot up process is quick and doesn’t have lags or slowdowns while performing day to day tasks. Heavy apps and software are most likely to run sublimely on this laptop and it will provide a memorable experience as well.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon range of laptops is designed with a different purpose by the Lenovo where it is looking forward to address the needs of the users by giving a consumer friendly product. There are far superior looking business laptops available in the market but Carbon series stand out for its implantation of such features which makes it extremely easier to get things done quickly. This laptop offers splendid display, massive battery and better features at a price of Rs. 1, 75,000.
