Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review

Premium performance

Take your productivity to new levels.

With 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the X1 Carbon Gen 8 is faster than ever no matter the task. And given that it’s certified by Intel® for mobile performance. That’s what Lenovo did with the X1 Carbon Gen 8, which gets its performance power from an Intel 10th Gen Core i7-1165G7 CPU and up to 16GB of RAM.

Your 9-to-5 workload won’t be much of a challenge for this speedy business laptop, which quickly loaded programs and applications. Just remember that lengthy demanding tasks, especially graphics-heavy ones, will tax any laptop in this class.


Designed for convenience.

At 6% thinner than its predecessor, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 is only 14.9mm thin—or just a hair more than a half-inch and it weighs only 2.4lb/1.08kg. This lightweight package reinvents portability and untethers you from the office.


Security solutions

Security solutions at the front line.

Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 8 security is top-notch, your Business data and privacy are safe. Its comprehensive suite of ThinkShield security solutions and a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) that encrypts data. ThinkShutter, a physical camera cover, locks down the lens to ensure you’re only seen when you want to. And the fingerprint reader, the most secure fingerprint technology available, uses biometrics to log in with just a touch.

Impressive displays.

Whether you’re watching the video, video conferencing around the world, or editing the graphics, the X1 Carbon Gen 8 offers extraordinary viewing options. Experience the 4K Dolby Vision™ cinema panel with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology – intricate details emerge as shadows and textures become richer. Or choose an FHD touchscreen or an FHD display with PrivacyGuard for screen security, now super bright.


Longer Battery Life

Lenovo Thinkpad x1 carbon delivers long-lasting power and productivity when you’re on the go. Enjoy epic battery life. And when you do need some juice, Rapid Charge boosts battery life up to 0-80% in just an hour.



On the right side are a USB 3.2 Type-A port, a headphone jack, and a Kensington lock slot. Below are the ports that come with the Lenovo Laptop. Flip the X1 Carbon around and you’ll find two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a second USB 3.2 Type-A input, and an HDMI 2.0 port.
