To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I did buy this laptop (ultrabook) which arrived sooner than expected, delivered by DHL. Unpacking was easy. It was partially charged. I did branch it and it was fully charged very quickly. Initial windows configuration was rather fast. I installed only a few programs, such as Microsoft Office and few additional ones related to my work. 1. Battery life: I am really impressed with the battery life of this computer. After two days of installing software and dealing with minor configuration adjustments, I charged it completely and I left it playing YouTube music non-stop, after changing power & sleep configuration to leave it functioning with no interruption. The computer played YouTube during 10:30 hours. I was really impressed. The I charged it completely in the next day. It took 1:40 h to be completely charged, Awesome. 2. Display: I am maybe somewhat naif, but I have never had a display experience such as with this computer. It gives you a sort of a '3D image'. Incredible. I showed it to my wife to be sure of what I was seeing, and she told me she had the same perception as well. Very nice. YouTube good recordings have an excellent resolution on screen. 3. Keyboard: although the layout of the keyboard is a 'classical' LeNovo layout, its touching is really smooth, with a kind of a rubbering sensation at the fingers. Typing is very responsive. The only thing I didn't like is that LeNovo switched the positions of Ctrl and Fn keys. In my previous (still in use and very good) LeNovo Flex 5, the position of these two keys are inverted. Why LeNovo did this? 4. Touchpad: the touchpad is incredibly responsive as well. Smooth and pleasant to touch. However, be aware to have clean hands before using the computer. After a few days, the touchpad had a greasy spot in it which is not easy to clean. This is maybe of my fault. 5. Web browsing: I don't like Microsoft Edge very much (although I have to try it again). Therefore, I downloaded and installed Chrome. Browsing the web with Chrome is very fast. 6. USB ports: the ultrabook has two USB ports. Transferring a folder of 62.2 Gb with 304 movie files from a Toshiba Canvio Connect II 1TB Portable Hard Drive to the ultrabook took 8 min. 23 sec.. Transferring back from the ultrabook to the external hard disk took 15 min. 33 sec. I also installed and connected an EPSON L3150 printer to the ultrabook. Printing just work fine. 7. HDMI port: I did connect a LG external screen through the HDMI port, and it did work fine as well. 8. Wireless mouse: I did connect a wireless mouse through one of the USB ports, and it did work very well. 9. Internet connection: I did a test with an internet speed of 24.85 Mbps for download and 6.00 Mbps for upload. I downloaded a 12 Gb folder with documents from Dropbox, and it took 44 min 46 sec. I then uploaded a folder of 60.7 Gb to the transfer file website WeTransfer, and it took 3 min 00 sec. Streaming connection and playing was very fast. Starting the computer with the digital recognition is perfect. The ultrabook has one drawback in my opinion: the on/off button on the right side is a bit small and needs to be seen, at least to me. My overall experience with this ultrabook after 4 days of use is that it is extremely good. Congratulations to LeNovo for building a state-of-art ultrabook, which is very light in weight. They could provide a protecting case for the ultrabook, though, considering its price. It would have been a nice purchase gift. Nevertheless, the computer is worth its price. Hopefully the battery life will remain somewhat constant for over a year. My last laptop (LeNovo Flex 5) lost maybe half of its battery life after one year.
This Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon computer was purchased to meet the requirements for my kid who is an engineering student. It is powerful, light-weighted, and has plenty of of RAM and SSD size. Especially, the keyboard is excellent, superior to all other previous computer keyboards. So far so good!
