17 Reasons For

Lenovo Has Good Portable PC Reviews

We checked 4,358 owner and expert reviews for Lenovo portable PCs and found that on average Lenovo has good reviews. We also found that Lenovo has good reviews specifically for its ultrabooks.

Recent Price Drop of £143.75

The price of the X1 Carbon dropped by £143.75 in the last few weeks.

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The X1 Carbon has a quite fast processor clock speed (2.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the X1 Carbon. Across all the laptops of a similar age and spec to the X1 Carbon the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 2.9GHz.

We compared this laptop to all the other 2.1GHz processor clock speed laptops and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Fujitsu LifeBook U904 (£1,553.21), and the DELL Latitude 14 E7440 (£1,546.80) is also worth considering.

SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many portable PCs that have been around 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Latitude 14 E7440 (£1,546.80), or the Latitude 14 E7440 (£1,546.80) both from DELL or the Fujitsu LifeBook U904 (£1,553.21).

If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the Lenovo X1 Carbon (SSD).
