Ever since Lenovo acquired the ThinkPad line from IBM 10 years ago, it has continued a tradition of excellence that dates back to the early 1990s. These notebooks–while not exactly the flashiest machines on the market–are loved by business users because they are dependable, powerful, and portable. Last year, the brand upset some longtime ThinkPad users by making a few too many tweaks to the classic design, but it has listened to feedback and returned to form with the release of the 2015 model of the X1 Carbon.
The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon is perfect for power users on the go. The lightweight laptop comes in the basic black casing that ardent fans of the laptop line appreciate because of its streamlined functionality. The keyboard will also satisfy ThinkPad aficionados with its “red nub” (officially known as the Trackpoint) for easy cursor navigation and scrolling. It also features responsive keys and a fingerprint reader for secure access. Under the hood, the X1 Carbon includes a state-of-the-art fifth generation Intel Core i5 processor, in addition to plenty of RAM, storage, and battery life for the average business user. The new ThinkPad has taken a cue from Lenovo’s Yoga line and also features a display with an impressive range of motion.
While the brand new X1 Carbon might be an excellent choice for companies with huge technology budgets, another viable option is to buy refurbished ThinkPads for your business. Refurbished and withdrawn PCs are available at a fraction of the cost of new machines and frequently offer comparable (and occasionally, better) functionality.
