ThinkPad X1 Carbon

ThinkPad X1 Carbon

You need a skin or a case to make sure you don’t ruin the Surface Laptop’s design. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon can take a beating without accessories.

Read: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2017 Review


The X1 Carbon has a magnesium body and water-resistant design. Lenovo says that the laptop met 12 military-grade durability requirements and passed 200 durability tests. Despite its durable exterior, the X1 Carbon weighs 2.49 pounds. That’s lighter than the Surface Laptop.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon models start at $1,322. Buyers choose between a 14-inch FHD 1920 x 1080p display and a 14-inch WQHD IPS 2560 x 1440 display for sharper visuals. All models use the latest Intel Core processors and buyers can add up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM to the system. Each X1 Carbon can last for 15 hours before it needs a charge.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon buyers get more ways to connect accessories than Surface Laptop buyers get. An NFC chip lets users pair a Bluetooth speaker with it quickly. There are 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, an Ethernet port, a MicroSD card slot and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports built into its body. The laptop’s WiGig technology lets it communicate with a dock wirelessly. ThinkPad X1 Carbon owners can browse the internet without Wi-Fi. Surface Laptop users can't do that.

Buy the ThinkPad X1 Carbon from Lenovo for $1,322.10

Pre-Order Because You'll Get Next-Gen Upgrades

Pre-Order Because You'll Get Next-Gen Upgrades

You can pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 without worrying about your next console. 

Later this year, Microsoft will release Project Scarlett, now known as Xbox Series X. The console will replace the Xbox One X as the company's flagship and it will do with some major upgrades. The company is also launching a cheaper Xbox Series S.

If you're planning to buy Microsoft's new console, or even if you aren't, you won't have to stress about Cyberpunk 2077. 

CD Projekt Red says that owners of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when it becomes available. The company adds that "gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades." 

The same goes for PlayStation 4 owners who upgrade to the PlayStation 5. CD Projekt Red says the company will push an upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077 that will allow it to take "full advantage of the next-gen hardware." This upgrade is also free.

The developer says that while next-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are in the works for the Xbox Series X and PS5, they will be released after the game arrives on current platforms.

The upgraded version of the game won't launch with the new consoles either. It will be released sometime after they arrive on shelves this fall. 

Cyberpunk 2077 will also be backwards compatible with both next-gen consoles.
