Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 review: A great laptop made even better

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 is a highly refined business laptop that's fast and long-lasting with some meaningful improvements.

“The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, now in its ninth generation, remains one of the very best high-end business laptops.”

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 (2021) Review

 

Flawless design and engineering ; World-class keyboard ; HDMI and USB-A ports, as well as Thunderbolt 4 ; Available 4G or 5G mobile broadband ; Clever, sanitizing-friendly Quick Clean function ; Excellent battery life

Expensive ; No OLED screen option ; No SD or microSD card slot

There's one ultraportable we admire as much (the Dell XPS 13 OLED), but there's no business laptop we admire more than Lenovo's latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 9) review: Flirting with perfection

 

Changes to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon's display and design combine with huge endurance gains to make the best business laptop ever.

Slim, lightweight design ; Good 14-inch, 16:10 FHD+ display ; Class-leading keyboard ; Great quad speakers ; Epic battery life ; 11th Gen Intel CPUs, up to 32GB of RAM ; New and legacy ports (see cons)

Poor 720p webcam ; IR camera isn't standard ; No card slot ; Touchpad is still a bit small

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 9) makes clever changes to move a winning business laptop to the brink of perfection.
