10 Reasons For

Lenovo Laptops Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo portable PCs and also specifically for Lenovo ultrabooks and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.

Has a Front Camera

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

We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the X240[pl_2055134_price], the ThinkPad X240[pl_2778550_price], or the X240[pl_2113564_price] all from Lenovo is also worth considering.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo X1 Carbon supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years. This Lenovo laptop supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most similar spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all ultrabooks that have been on the market for more than two years.

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

SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec. 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.

Other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might want to consider include the X1 Carbon Touch[pl_1537041_price], or the X1 Carbon Touch[pl_1537041_price] both from Lenovo or the Fujitsu LifeBook U772[plb_2252373_price] which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the DELL Latitude 14 E7240[plb_1620017_price] (SSD).
