    ThinkPad X1 Carbon UltrabookFeatures

    Introducing the New X1 Carbon — our third iteration of the popular Carbon Series incorporates feedback from users — like you. We've taken the best of the past, and incorporated essential technologies of today to bring you a system with legendary usability and uncompromising performance.
    Without saying too much, it's simply the thinnest ThinkPad ever built. But don't let its ultra-slim profile fool you — the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of the most powerful fighters in its lightweight class.
    With the New X1 Carbon, on select models you're getting a stunning QHD display featuring practical anti-glare technology for crisper text and brighter images - so you can work longer, and focus better, without the eye strain. And, with optional multitouch technology, you'll discover new and more intuitive ways to interact with your device.
    You don't have time to stop for a charge between all those back-to-back meetings, and we've kicked up the battery life on this year's model to help make sure you don't have to. But when you do finally run low, those pit stops will be brief with the X1 Carbon's exclusive RapidCharge battery technology.
    From plane to car, bike to office - let's just say that however you get around, the X1 Carbon was built to withstand the rigors of even the most strenuous travel plans, and fit where you need it.

    Great design, screen has good anti-reflective coating and good contrast. It is very powerful and hence fast, for the size and weight.
    At native resolution and normal DPI much of the text is far too small to read. Screen resolutions are now driven by marketing, not by usability. The small size comes at a price - bespoke connectors, with the consequent need to carry adaptor cables for display and networks.

    Good design and keyboard
    Matt screen cover makes display fuzzy. Effectively becomes low res display which makes eyes sore.

    Fast, beautifully light with great build quality and a good trackpad although still not up to a MacBook's standard. Battery life is fabulous although of course depends on the nature of use.
    Just a tad expensive!

    Light as a feather and blazing fast; as a Thinkpad user for over a decade the deciding factor was and always will be the keyboard; I postponed upgrading from my aging T60 for years due to this; the new keyboard doesn't disappoint..

    * Experienced silverfish injection of ads into browser required malware bytes to remove.

    * Network adapter is awful/frequently unusable with b/g; will be upgrading DSL router/wifi (budget for it)

    * Initial problems with some apps and Synaptics scroll but now resolved

    * 0.5TB SSD only has 95% of it made available to you

    * Memory should be putting the full 16GB memory in that the CPU supports; 8GB is on the low side for a machine of this calibre

    Great boot up speed, very fast response times when switching between applications.

    Size and weight are perfect.
    No controls to set when the battery starts charging when the computer is plugged in.

    Very upset to find the machine I ordered 10% cheaper a week after I placed my order. Not good re treating customers fairly!

    Very nice laptop; my first experience with Lenovo and Thinkpad. It's just a shame the workmanship is very shoddy.
    Bad assembly. I ordered 2 carbon's. One came with the bottom of the laptop very loose which clicked into place every time you placed your wrists down to type. It also had a very 'squishy' END key, which I couldn't live with. The second has the screen not pressed into the place properly (you can actually see that it's been forced into place but failed due to a failure in tolerances) but shipped anyway. For this money, that's totally unacceptable and thus both of them are going back and I'm moving onto something else. Very disappointed.

    Very light, screen resolution is superb. Keyboard very solid and has a good feel.
    Build quality not all it should be for a machine that cost about £2000. screen bezel coming away at the bottom corner. Machine sometimes freezes for several seconds - haven't worked out yet whether this is specific software or hardware issue. Performance good but not stunning. Battery life good but nowhere near as good as the literature suggests. If this machine was half the price, it would be good value. As it is, its a bit disappointing overall.
