    Good: Great flip stand design, Durable build quality, Bright, vibrant IPS display, Excellent keyboard,

    Bad: Short battery life, Expensive, Performance is mediocre for price

    The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a well-made business convertible. The tablet's magnesium construction not only feels great to hold but offers the excellent durability that we've come to expect from Lenovo's ThinkPad line. The flip stand design is one of...

    Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a wonderful machine, and I really did enjoy using it. In fact, if I had the cellular model, I'd say that the additional connectivity is worth the drop in performance from the Y-series processor.The real problem is that I jus...

  • Laptops have become thinner and lighter in recent years, and in the portable ultrabook market many are trying to be the thinnest or lightest without sacrificing functionality and performance. Lenovo has updated its ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook and we take...

    Bad: Slow to boot (nearly 30 seconds). Surprisingly buggy during normal operations, like running Windows Update. Clickpad is merely OK. Puny battery

    Few laptops have been as anticipated in 2012 — if such a sentiment actually exists — as Lenovo’s latest ultrabook, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. At 14 inches diagonally and a hair under 3 pounds, Lenovo is offering a machine at the same weight as most 13-inc...

    I admit it, the moment I saw the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon I had a serious crush. That's not wildly unusual for this technologist, but those first crushes often turn to indifference once I put a machine through its paces. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon doesn'...

    Good: Fast SSD, Strong performance CPU, Thin but well-designed case, Bright display, High-quality input devices, Extensive connectivity

    Bad: Expensive, Weak contrast and limited viewing angles, Battery life needs to be improved, Temperatures emissions are high under load

    Lenovo ThinkPad X1We did not get the proper ThinkPad feeling from this test model. Yes the X1 is slim, light and looks good, but to achieve this it sacrifices some of the qualities which built the ThinkPad reputation from the ground up.Our biggest critiqu...

    The common denominator is small size and light weight. Otherwise, the usual tradeoffs apply. Be on the alert for lousy ergonomics, poor b...

  • Just as we were beginning to think that the rumours of 13”-display notebooks’ shutdown were true, Lenovo issued the best possible denial, by demonstrating X1, the new, prestigious model. The notebook we’ve tested isn’t the final version, but it’s compl...

  • Good: Lightweight, Excellent keyboard, Good overall performance,

    Bad: Mediocre battery life, No optical drive, Glossy display is glareprone

    Reviewers say the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 laptop offers a great mix of portability and performance for business users. The 3.7-pound laptop has very good performance for most tasks, and it posts high marks in video, photo and multitasking tests. Portability...

    Good: A durable, wellequipped, ultraportable powerhouse.

    Bad: Close to 4 pounds; no optical drive; singlechannel RAM.

    Last month we reviewed Samsung’s Series 9 ultraportable notebook and found that, while it offered an exceedingly svelte and fashionable form factor, there was a performance trade-off to all that stylishness. Lenovo’s 13-inch ThinkPad X1 represents a c...

  • Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 is an incredible piece of hardware with few flaws. Glossy display aside, the user interface and material choices of the X1 make it a deserving receipt of the ThinkPad badge. The X1 is a serious laptop for people who need to do serious...

  • The X1 keeps much of what we all love about ThinkPads, including the comfortable and functional keyboard, a TrackPoint (aka “the red nub”), lack of bloatware loaded on top of Windows, and solid build quality. Beyond that, the X1 is a major departure...

  • Good: Great Performance, Solid Construction, Genuinely Useful Value-Added Software, Good External Speakers

    Bad: Weak Battery Life w/o 2nd Battery, Heavier Than Most Ultra-Portables, Disappointing Display Panel Given Price

    The X1's performance is excellent. The system proved itself handily against both the Lenovo U260 and X120e. Its 320GB HDD performed quite well, though an SSD option would be icing on the cake. Either way, the X1 is a svelte system that offers higher ...

  • The general perception about the ThinkPad has been sacrifice in looks to get durability. But that’s not all the truth, and if the truth be told we would like to tell that Lenovo has been doing a lot of experimentation with the design, including machine...

  • There's a lot to love about the ThinkPad X1, even if it isn't quite thin or light enough to rightly join the ranks of Macbook Air competitors. It looks and feels great, is a joy to work on, boots fast and remains responsive even when multitasking and ...

    Good: Very solid construction, Thin and relatively light

  • The X1 13.3-inch laptop is in many ways Lenovo’s response to the MacBook Air. However, the heavier, angular and much more capable X1 should be considered on its own merits for business users who want a durable, sleek and portable system. The Lenovo bus...

  • Known for its straightforward business laptops, Lenovo is adding a touch of style with its new ThinkPad X1. The ultrathin laptop will be available May 24th for a starting price of $1,399. With a 13.2 x 9.0-in. footprint, the ThinkPad X1's jet black cas...

    Bad: Short battery lifeReflective displayLimited CPU selection

    As you can probably tell, we like the X1. A lot. It's as thin and durable as it is ergonomically sound, it performs briskly, and particularly thanks to those strong speakers, we can see people snapping this up even if their lives aren't scheduled around m...

    Good: Thin design with lots of ports, Excellent performance, Bright screen with Gorilla Glass,

    Bad: Integrated battery, Glossy screen, Annoying touchpad issue,

    At the end of the day, the team at Lenovo did a very good job developing a ThinkPad that offers the durability, performance and features that we've come to expect from a ThinkPad and combining them with the stylish design elements that appeal to many consumers and IT buyers. If that is your measure for success, then the ThinkPad X1 is indeed a winner. However, the X1 is not exactly "perfect" eith

    Good: Incredibly light for a 14-inch laptop, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is ruggedly built, and has a better keyboard than any ultrabook-style laptop, even Apple's MacBook Air

    Bad: For such an expensive laptop, battery life is just so-so. Consumer-friendly options such as HDMI are missing

    The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the thinnest ThinkPad ever made, and it's a slim, cleanly designed 13-incher worth a look for business travelers--but it's not as thin as a MacBook Air, and its battery life isn't as good, either.

    Good: Sturdy construction, Gorilla glass is scratch-proof, Backlit keyboard, Great typing experience, HDMI and DisplayPort, Fast 2,5-inch HDD, Standard Voltage processors only, An excellent mix of wireless technologies, Dolby sound is worthy of entertainment laptop,...

    Bad: No Anti-glare screen available, Standard battery alone doesn't crank out enough battery life, Hefty for an ultraportable without an optical drive,

    The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 has a backlit keyboard, edge-to-edge gorilla glass screen, the infamous click touchpad, and high-fidelity Dolby sound, and it has some serious processing chops. Its standard battery, however, is unimpressive. ...

  • One key feature missing from the X1 that we liked about the X220 is the IPS display. While the Corning Gorilla glass and “infinity” screen are nice features, the display can’t hold a candle to the IPS display in terms of viewing angles. Observed indep...

  • The Thinkpad X1 has a terrific keyboard!The Lenovo X1 is one of the best thin&light ThinkPad to ever be produced. I like the build quality, the rigidity of the chasis, and its overall design. The Keyboard deserves a special mention, because it is the best...

  • We got the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 in our hands early, to get the skinny on this laptop targeted for the business user. This slim black laptop looks good on the outside, but like Mom used to say “It’s what’s inside that counts.” With rumors of Intel Cor...

  • A few weeks ago I had my first Lenovo experience with the Edge 420s—system which I consider one of the best notebooks currently on the market if not the best. I feel that way about the Edge 420s because of its stellar design, amazing power, and comput...
