11 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Lenovo ultrabooks have good reviews as do all portable PCs produced by Lenovo.

Has a Front Camera

The X1 Carbon has a front camera. Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type also have a front camera.

Alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL XPS 13.

We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a front camera including the Lenovo X1 Carbon, or the DELL Latitude 12 E7240.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The X1 Carbon supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most ultrabooks that came out around the same time as it. In addition, this Lenovo laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all ultrabooks that were released more than two years ago.

A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst comparable types of portable PC.

SSD Storage Medium

This laptop has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on ultrabooks that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including the XPS 13, or the XPS 13 both from DELL which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (SSD), or the DELL Latitude 12 E7240 (SSD).

Light

At only 1.3 kilograms, the X1 Carbon is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as the X1 Carbon. The weights of comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the X1 Carbon range from 870g to 3.3kg.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (1.4kg and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire V5-122P (£608.00) (1.2kg and cheaper).

10 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The X1 Carbon has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,000 megahertz) amongst ultrabooks of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of laptops that came out more than two years ago range from 800MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo X1 Carbon does not have a full-size keyboard, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the X1 Carbon also do not have a full-size keyboard.

There are a number of alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard which you might also want to consider including the DELL XPS 13 which is also cheaper.

If this notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the X1 Carbon (180GB), or the X240 (500GB) both from Lenovo or the Asus UX301LA (£843.02) (256GB).

We compared all the other 1.6GHz processor clock speed laptops to this notebook PC and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the DELL XPS 13 is also worth considering.

If this ultrabook processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Asus UX301LA (£843.02) (1.8GHz).
