Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 Review Rundown
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.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
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.
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.
