As noted in our ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 7) review, we love its attractive, lightweight design, fast performance and long battery life. We gave the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and the Editor's Choice award. Keep in mind, there is a newer model with 10th Gen Intel CPUs, but it costs significantly more.
During real-world testing, the laptop held up well under a typical workload. In our lab, it scored a 15,649 on the Geekbench 4 overall performance test. It surpassed the Dell XPS 13 (14,936, Core i7-8565U), Vaio SX14 (14,887, Core i7-8565U) and HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 (14,331, Core i7-8565U).
By design, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon sports clean surfaces, smooth lines and stylish branding. Built to military-grade durability standards, it withstands exposure to sand, dust, high altitudes, high humidity and UV radiation.
At 2.1 pounds and 0.6 inches thin, the 14-inch X1 Carbon is lighter than its competitors. This includes the XPS 13 (2.7 pounds, 0.5 inches), the SX14 (2.3 pounds, 0.7 inches) and the EliteBook x360 1040 G5 (3 pounds, 0.7 inches).
For such a thin notebook, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 offers an ample amount of ports. You get two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet dock connector and a headphone/mic combo jack.
Fast, slim and durable, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is a solid pick — especially at this price!
