Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon – Lid Up

Opening up the system we find a 14" display which on our review sample was an anti-glare 1600x900pixels (300NITS) model. As is normal for mobile systems a webcam is integrated into the display surround, just above the centre along with a microphone and this is a 720p part.

Moving to the main body of the system we have a power button at the top right with audio buttons further along. An island style keyboard is also present with spill proof design and this is also a backlit model. The palm rest continues this soft touch, carbon fibre build quality and even the touchpad is different to the norm with glass finish with the mouse buttons using a harder surface like the keys.

It is also worth noting that Lenovo continue to offer multiple input methods on their ThinkPad series. In the centre of the keyboard we find the classic red Trackpoint with mouse buttons below the space bar. A track pad is below these and it features left and right functionality too. Adding to the input options is a finger print reader off to the right for maximum security.

Finally from an external point of view we have a rather extreme hinge on this system. Passing well over the 90+ degree angle of most systems the ThinkPad X1 gets to a flat, 180degree position when fully open.
