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.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a well-built laptop that feels great in hand. Windows 10 Hello support is provided by a match-on-sensor fingerprint reader. The touchpad is large enough and as a Microsoft Precision laptop has reliable and precise support for the full gamut of Windows 10 multitouch gestures.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is as close to the ultimate business laptop as you can get.
