Summary

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 doesn't do anything extra to draw attention to itself. It maintains the same black frame with a few red accents that scream “ThinkPad!” without making a sound. The laptop is lightweight at 2.4 pounds — just slightly lighter than the 6th-gen version.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon makes a great first impression, largely thanks to how it feels in hand. It has that soft-touch surface that makes the ThinkPad line so inviting. The laptop is lightweight at 2.4 pounds — just slightly lighter than the 6th-gen version. It still has more travel than many keyboards in thin-and-light laptops.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Intel 9560 comes standard for 802.11ac or Wi-Fi 5 connectivity. Lenovo offers no AX200/AX201 options forWi-Fi 6 connectivity. Only the hexa-core Core i7-10710U option will provide a noticeable boost in CPU performance. The presence of pulse-width modulation on this X1 Carbon is also a bummer.

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon manages both business and pleasure with aplomb. The laptop is one of the lightest in ultraportable laptop territory. Its 14-inch screen is almost an inch larger than the 13.3-inch panels on most laptops. Despite its thin chassis, the keyboard is at least as comfortable as any on other ThinkPads.

  • Excellent productivity and manageability features
  • Excellent battery life
