Getting a laptop that will work along with your business life, schedule, and workload, then you might find the choice even harder than buying a gamer one, believe me… We’ve covered plenty of business, students, and gaming computers, so it is time to emphasize on those business ones, that are kind of more sophisticated and expensive in my opinion.
The product that we’ll talk about is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1, which is a pretty good laptop, but on a price tag that’s not for all of us. It will ensure everything you need, so you will have a machine that will be always there for you, no matter how much workload you’ve gotta finish. The design and every aspect in terms of software/hardware is pretty good and the aesthetics will certainly match your lifestyle!
What are the specs, performance, and everything?
-Processors up to Intel 8th-gen Core i7
-Up to 16GB of memory
-Up to 1TB SSD PCIe
-Intel UHD Graphics 620
-Intel 802.1ac dual-band wireless
These are basically the most important specs, which may give you some light on what’s the strong part of the laptop and what is not. As you can see, the processor is pretty powerful, giving you 8th cores of power working at 1.9GHz but are able to be boosted up to 4.2, which is insanely much! The RAM storage is also high and with those 16GB you’ll be able to do whatever you want on it.
It will power any software that you might need for your working procedures, so you are pretty much ensured. If you are into graphics design or music producing, you’ll be good to go with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1, as well as engineering, software development and etc. The graphics are UHD Graphics 620 provided by Intel and will present everything on a high-quality display available at four different options, depending on how much money you’re willing to spend.
- 14″ FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare, 300 nits
- 14″ FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare multi-touch, 300 nits
- 14″ WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS anti-glare, 300 nits
- 14″ HDR WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS glossy with Dolby Vision, 500 nits
Also, Lenovo has ensured a lot of internal storage capacity by adding a 1TB hard drive, so you’ll be perfectly able to store all your important documents, projects, blueprints and etc. The laptop is a perfect platform for communication as well, which is essential for the progression of all businesses! With the front-facing HD 720p camera, you’ll allow the receiver to have a clear and perfect picture of you. If you want to prevent anyone from observing/spying on you, you can also use the ThinkShutter feature, which basically blocks the lens of your camera and I really like!
Battery life is one of the essential things when it comes to business laptops. It is pretty clear that people who are into business have to rely on a machine at all times and some of them actually need the laptop nearby through the whole day. The good thing with the ThinkPad is that you have 15 hours of estimated battery life, so you won’t have to stress over battery life and you can take it whenever you want with no worries!
Does it deserve the price?
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the 2018 generation of the series and it has been even stated to be the best business class laptop at the CES 2018, that was held in Las Vegas at the very beginning of the year. Do I agree with that statement? Absolutely.
The laptop has been aimed at people who do lots of work under pressure, under deadlines, who use tons of programs and who basically need a really powerful machine that can cope with their demands! The idea behind the ThinkPad is not gaming, no matter that it works perfectly for it, and I admit that Lenovo perfectly nailed their intentions. Yes, the laptop is a bit pricey and not everyone can spend $1700 on a laptop, but no one said that everyone should afford it, right?
It has been perfectly aimed at a certain auditory and all the needed tasks/requirements have been accomplished perfectly. This brings me to the conclusion, that this laptop is worth every single dollar. If you use it properly, it will surely turn into profit as it will increase your productivity and you’ll cope with workload quicker and more convenient than with any other machine!
