There are lots of good laptops, but it”s rare to find one repeatedly described as the best laptop you can buy. The eighth generation of Lenovo”s ThinkPad X1 Carbon (starts at $1,331; $1,888 as tested) carries that history, having racked up more rave reviews and awards than any notebook we can think of except possibly the Dell XPS 13. This 14-inch business system combines an unbeatable screen and keyboard with MIL-STD 810G toughness to pass torture tests involving shock, vibration, and environmental extremes, yet it weighs just 2.4 pounds, less than the XPS 13 and many other ultraportables. With stacks of as-you-like-it configuration options, it picks up autocadtfesvb.com Editors” Choices as regularly as punching a time clock. This year is no exception, though we”re sad Lenovo keeps sending us relatively modest Core i5 models. Maybe next year we”ll get to review a fancy loaded version.

Don”t Mess With a Classic Design
Today”s test unit features a 1.7GHz Core i5-10310U processor, 8GB of memory, a 256GB NVMe solid-state drive, and a full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) non-touch IPS display. Our Lenovo rep says it”s $1,888 from CDW, which seems a tad steep compared to Lenovo.com”s base model at $1,331 (a few dollars cheaper with Linux). The extra $557 buys you a trivially faster Core i5 with Intel”s vPro remote IT management, Windows 10 Pro instead of Home, and LTE mobile broadband. If you don”t need the LTE, you would see little difference with the starter machine.
Lenovo offers four other screen options: a 1080p touch screen, a 1080p touch screen with a privacy filter, a higher-resolution 2,560-by-1,440-pixel panel, and a 4K (3,840-by-2,160-pixel) Dolby Vision HDR 400 display. The memory and storage ceilings are 16GB and 1TB respectively; Lenovo.com”s price for a maxed-out Core i7-10610U system with the 4K screen is $2,378.
Though the lightest of Lenovo”s three 14-inch business notebooks (under the 2.8-pound ThinkPad T14s and 3.2-pound ThinkPad T14), the Carbon isn”t the lightest on the market; the Asus ExpertBook B9450 is just 1.91 pounds. Still, at 0.59 by 12.7 by 8.5 inches the Lenovo is impressively compact (the Acer TravelMate P6 measures 0.65 by 12.8 by 9.1 inches). It”s a breeze to stash in any briefcase.
