Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2018 (WQHD HDR, i7) Laptop Review
Verdict: The 2018 version of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon did not change that much compared to the previous model. The chassis is basically identical, and Lenovo only changed some visual details. We like the black logos and hinges, but the new colored X1 logo on the lid takes time getting used to.
Pros: high-end, light, and slim chassis, very bright WQHD panel with wide color gamut, decent performance utilization of the quad-core CPU, modern port selection including regular USB Type-A, good system performance, excellent keyboard, long battery runtime, three-year warranty, fast SD reader..
Cons: ...but only microSD and tricky to access, very glossy screen, HDR is not supported yet, high surface temperatures under load, fan quickly reacts to load and emits a high-pitched noise, not "WWAN-ready, very limited maintenance, LAN only via (included) adapter
