Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Laptop Review

This Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Laptop Review will provide you the pros and cons of this ultraportable product. Some have claimed that this Lenovo ultraportable laptop has become a very big contender to the Macbook Air, however, when a couple of test runs have been conducted by several reviewers, it is safe to say that this ThinkPad does not belong to this prestigious category. Against the air thin Macbook series of laptop, X1 is generally thicker although this ThinkPad is the thinnest of its kind in Lenovo. However, it is unfair to say that it cannot match the standard of the Macbook series of laptops or that it is very thick and heavy to say. It is fairer to say that this belongs to another market category. This laptop is for people who travel a lot.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is extremely sturdy as it is able to resist any bend or flex, it remains durable. The keyboard also is very much high in quality. Aside from the typing experience which is more than pleasant, it is also spill proof. Thus, it enables you to do your thing in your laptop without much worries that your drink might spill off at the keyboards resulting to extensive and long term damages to the unit, both externally and internally. Instead of a trackpad, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 has a clickpad, just to have an interesting touch to it. The texture of the pad is generally impressive as the finger is provided a more frictioned grip for easier handling. The laptop’s base configuration includes a high performing processor called Core i3 processor. Its hard drive runs 7200 revolutions per minute with a capacity of 320 GB, a relatively impressive feat for a laptop this ultraportable. Its RAM has a capacity of 4 GB. The price on this specifications range from $1199 tp $1304, which is about average when it comes to it being expensive. This Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Laptop Review has more detailed explanations on this ThinkPad.

This laptop has several ports for several devices such as USB, HDMI 1.4a, eSATA, a Display port, and a card slot for connectivity to 3D. The display is 1366 by 768 pixels, which entails a high quality display and the graphics do shift too much in color whenever you change your viewing angle. However, it is disappointing to note that Lenovo used a glossy glass cover. The webcam installed in this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is high in quality as it performs better than expected at night even in low light. When it comes to audio, it is substantial in loudness, not what you would expect in a laptop this size. This may be because of its licensing of the technology of Dolby Home Theater.

The fatal flaw of this laptop, however, is its battery life. It can only run at around 3 to 4 hours, which is very short relative to its other competition. Its battery is a non removable lithium polymer. This is why a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Laptop Review is important for you to evaluate.
