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.

It has a lot of good things going for it. It's right around 3 pounds. It's thin and I love the super small bezel around the screen. The i7 is fast. The 256GB SSD is big enough for most users and the 16GB of ram is great (the one we used had 8GB). There are two USB ports, an HDMI, a mini-DisplayPort, a 3.5 audio jack, and the power port. The 720p webcam is certainly usable. It has no Ethernet port, but it comes with a Ethernet adapter that plugs in the ThinkPad expansion port (not sure if that's always included). The wireless is plenty fast enough. We got 4-5 hours of battery live doing web and email.
For a thin ultrabook, the keyboard is very good. The keys have enough travel and it's very comfortable to type on. The first and second generation of the X1 Carbon had a horrible keyboard so it's great that this third generation redid the keyboard. The backlit keyboard is very nice for typing in the dark. Also the touchpad works just right. The right and left click at the bottom are virtual buttons, but there are real physical right and left click buttons at the top of the touchpad (mainly to go with the pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard).
The touchscreen is also really nice. It's a higher resolutions IPS screen (2560x1440). The higher resolutions can be good or bad. Since windows doesn't scale very well, I still prefer a 1920x1080 for this small of a screen. Most touch screens are glossy, but this has a matte filter so it's the least glossy touchscreen I've used (big pro to me!). The brightness and contrast were nothing amazing. I remember specifically that the XPS 13 we were comparing it to was a good bit brighter at maximum brightness. The colors also seems a bit flat compared to a XPS 13. It's certainly usable and you probably won't notice unless you have something better to compare it to.
It's not very upgradeable, but that's not a big downside. The bottom shell does come off pretty easy, but the ram is soldered to the motherboard. But who's going to need more than 16GB of RAM? I don't like thinking that if ram goes bad down the line that I have to replace the motherboard... The cpu is also soldered down but that's so common that it's a non-issue. The SSD is in the m.2 format but is a AHCI m.2. Officially it doesn't support NVMe m.2 drives.
A bigger downside to me was how much flex there is in the system and that the hinge is wiggly. Even though we had no issues with it in the month we used it, it just didn't seem as solid as some of the competition. The XPS 13 is much more solid for a very similar model. When we were looking at this, we were looking for a client who needed 7 laptops. We ended up going with the Dell e7450 which didn't look as nice but was a ton sturdier. This Lenovo just doesn't feel business class sturdy and the default one year warranty didn't help our concern. If I was buying it for myself and knew I would be careful, I could see this working. But I don't think it's a good machine for employees even though it's a ThinkPad.
It's a nice laptop. I think the deal of the day price is still a good value. But it's still $1150 for a Windows 8.1 laptop. Yes, you can still use the accessibility upgrade to upgrade it to 10. Being two generations behind doesn't mean as much as it used to when comparing speed and features. But I'm not excited by it.
