The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review/Highlights

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a hard-to-find all-round offering for folks in Cameroon, Nigeria or Africa looking for a robust laptop. Released in 2012, this laptop has stood the test of time. The comfort of the Lenovo ThinkPad series is legendary. Typing on it is such a joy. The keyboard is backlit, making it perfect for working in dim environments. Talking about portability, it weighs in at only 1.4kgs. This will easily fit in most backpacks.

The laptop comes with intel's VPro, which is optimized for businesses. A fingerprint scanner on board means added security. It launched with the windows 7 OS but works great with Windows 10. It is fully compatible with Windows 10 Hello. ThinkPad's Proprietary Track Navigation Pad (UltravNav, TrackPoint) is also available for those who use it.

It can be gotten in popular places in Cameroon such as Douala, Yaounde, Bamenda, Bafoussam, Buea, etc. However, you will get a refurbished package. This is isn't bad because the X1 Carbon launched at the price of about $1200 for the base model, which translates to 719000Frs (469000 Naira). Nowadays, you can quickly get it for a fraction of the cost. I am currently typing this article on a used model (First Gen), and it is such a joy to use.
