Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look

2020-01-19, 10:16 AM

it might be time to give Dell a shot...

Believe me, Dell is even worse. At least X1C7's problems are all manageable. Dell even cannot make a reliable motherboard.

is there a personal experience to be shared on this one, please? well at least the 4k screen on Dell doesn't bring it to 3-4hrs of battery life afaik.


drjochen - how are you finding the spectre after these few more weeks? is the keyboard on par with X1C7? You have the Ice Lake+Iris version? 4k? How much battery can you get out of it? 


Thank you both for sharing the info!

Ice Lake+Iris yes, 4k no. I wanted max battery life. Right now, I get about 10-11 hours give or take in normal use on travel.

I actually like the keyboard a lot better than I thought. It is much better than most HP keyboards. Also, the "normal screen" is really good. Ant other questions, just let me know!!!
