The Bottom Line
"A 12th Gen Intel CPU, a sharper webcam, and more display options cement the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon's place as the finest laptop for business—and likely the finest laptop, period."
Serious productivity enhancer
Powered by Intel vPro®, An Intel® Evo™ Design—with up to 14 cores—our legendary ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 laptop takes multitasking to the next level. These CPUs have a revolutionary design that intelligently allocates workloads to the right thread, on the right core, at the right time—which allows for better video collaboration and productivity based on how you’re using your device.
Communication just got a lot nicer
Say hello to the Communications Bar, a gorgeous new design that houses the higher resolution FHD camera with optional infrared (IR) and Computer Vision features—all with a webcam privacy shutter. It also shows off the 4 x 360-degree mics with integrated AI-based noise-cancellation and Dolby Voice®. The Communications Bar not only looks great—it inspires seamless collaboration and vibrant video calls.
Keeps cool under pressure
The underside of the keys on our legendary ThinkPad keyboard has been redesigned for air intake to create better airflow. Combined with the dual fan and rear venting, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 laptop delivers improved thermals—so go ahead and put in long hours working and playing as this X1 will stay as cool as you are.
Missing laptop? No problem.
If you misplace your laptop, or worse, if someone takes it, locating your device has never been so easy. Now Tile® ready, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 works with your smartphone to find your device—even when your X1 is powered off. Simply subscribe to the Tile® service*, and then download, set up, and activate.
Security as unique as your DNA
Biometrics provides extra security on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 laptop—from the power button integrated with the fingerprint reader that lets you log in and boot up instantaneously to the facial recognition software that works with the optional IR camera. Plus, Computer Vision-based presence detection automatically locks your device when you move away, and with the optional PrivacyGuard display, no wandering eyes see what’s on your screen.
Displays that dazzle
Whether your position requires richly detailed graphical displays or extra security to keep spying eyes away, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 laptop has an option for you. Ranging from 4K WQUXGA touch to 2.8K OLED, WUXGA, and even ePrivacy, all 14" panels feature a 16:10 aspect ratio with narrow bezels. Most displays also include low-power usage and Eyesafe® certification to reduce blue-light emissions.
Count on ThinkPad every time
We use the US Department of Defense's MIL-STD 810H standards to create a balance of reliability and durability for our ThinkPad laptops. We test against 12 standards and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. These tests cover harsh variables like Arctic wilderness and desert dust storms, including temperature, pressure, humidity, vibration, and more.
