We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo portable PCs and also specifically for Lenovo ultrabooks and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.
Has a Front Camera
The X1 Carbon has a front camera. Most of the other portable PCs of this age and type also have a front camera.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the X240, the ThinkPad X240, or the X240 all from Lenovo is also worth considering.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo X1 Carbon supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years. This Lenovo laptop supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most similar spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all ultrabooks that have been on the market for more than two years.
A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of portable PC.
SSD Storage Medium
This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
Most of the other ultrabooks that were released more than two years ago only have between two and seven battery cells, however the X1 Carbon has eight battery cells.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Like most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the X1 Carbon, the Lenovo X1 Carbon does not have a full-size keyboard.
We compared this portable PC to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the Lenovo T440s DOS CH, or the DELL XPS 13 which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This laptop Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently found Ethernet LAN data rate on notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to it.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The Lenovo X1 Carbon is a one USB 2.0 port laptop. Most of the other notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the X1 Carbon have one USB 2.0 port.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of laptops of this spec and age is 1MB, the biggest is 6MB, and the average processor cache is 3.3MB. The X1 Carbon has one of the smaller processor caches (only 3 megabytes) amongst ultrabooks of this age.
+1 More reason against
7 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon
Released Over Two Years Ago
This notebook PC was released over two years ago.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the X1 Carbon has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other ultrabooks that were launched more than two years ago.
At 1.9 gigahertz, the Lenovo X1 Carbon has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age.
There are a number of alternative 1.9GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper laptops such as the DELL Latitude 14 E7440, or the Lenovo X240.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo X1 Carbon has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other ultrabooks that are a similar age to the X1 Carbon.
There are a number of other 256GB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper portable PCs such as the X1 Carbon Touch, or the X240 both from Lenovo.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 (500GB).
With a weight of 1.4 kilograms, the X1 Carbon has a pretty typical weight compared to most of the other laptops that have been around for around the same time as the X1 Carbon.
If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu LifeBook U772 (1.4kg) which is also cheaper.
