The latest model of the Lenovo flagship notebook, ThinkPad X1 Carbon [Gen 8] released in May 2020. Although there is no major renewal from the previous Gen 7, it is the first time in a few years to personally get a ThinkPad, and for details such as minor differences, see the previous review, and here is the candid office worker's candid person who uses Mac completely. I would like to convey your impressions.
Cool [?] Case
Judging from the fact that I was involved in editing PC magazines for more than 20 years, it seems unlikely that I will be able to make a cool decision whether it is cool or bad with the recognition that it is such a thing, but it is wonderful that a rigid attitude without blurring .. I wonder if the commercials for lunch boxes that come from CRTs have become a hot topic in tea rooms. I'm hungry…
Can be used immediately like a smartphone
Personally, I have only used a ThinkPad for a long time, and I am aware that recent PCs can wake up from sleep quickly. Based on that, I think it is worth mentioning that the machine can resume work very smoothly [please refrain from pushing it afterwards as it is not a new feature].
Connect seamlessly like a smartphone
It's a function on the OS [Windows 10] side, but the settings for the cellular line have become quite familiar. The MVNO APN is also remembered properly, and the upper limit can be set. It is no different from a smartphone.
Discerning input interface
Previously, a certain person who was involved in the development of the series said that TrackPoint was the ultimate pointing device, and lamented that a trackpad was installed later. Although I haven't touched the ThinkPad for a long time, I am a user of ThinkPad Keyboard, and I have access to TrackPoint.
Relation: ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II Review
A certain professor T killed TrackPoint and even distributed sticky notes attached to it, but I personally found it convenient to have a trackpad. However, if there is a young person who misses the opportunity to acquire track points because of this, it may be very sad.
Also for multimedia playback
The recent MacBook had loud speakers, which was unrelated to external speakers. Sometimes when I use Windows notebook, I often feel that the area is poor, but X1 Carbon is enough. The sound quality is also great.
It seems that you can change the model like a smartphone
I didn't take care of you this time, but you also have a data migration tool made by Lenovo. Even if you log in with a Microsoft account, it will support you to change computers [change models].
Recommended for those who need a PC soon
The minimum configuration is 233,000 yen [excluding tax] and it belongs to the category of high-end notebooks, but I got the impression that it was finished in one unit that is easy for anyone to use by incorporating the easy-to-understand and convenient parts of the smartphone. Also for those who are hungry.
