Year after year, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon finds its way to the top of our best business laptops rankings. The only reason we wouldn't recommend this excellent machine to someone is because of its inflated price. Fortunately, a massive Cyber Monday discount makes the ThinkPad X1 Carbon more affordable than ever.
