Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a desirable laptop for creative pros. It's not quite the stunner that the ThinkPad Carbon is, however. It faces formidable competition from the refreshed XPS 15 and MacBook Pro. Still, except for its battery life, it's a couple to pick with my unit.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 4K display
  • Sleek design
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • Lackluster graphics performance
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
