A Fantastic Voyage Through The ThinkPad X1 Carbon’s Innards

Source: The Register A Fantastic Voyage Through The ThinkPad X1 Carbon’s Innards

Enter The Carbon

Our intrepid explorers discovered a 1.80GHz Core i7-8565U with 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 512GB of PCIe-NVMe SSD storage with almost no effort, as Lenovo has designed this particular Carbon X1 for easy access.  The 51Whr Rapid Charge battery is a bit harder to remove, but not onerous when the inevitable occurs in a few years.  The Register did not get the opportunity to disassemble the 500-nit 14″ 4K IPS display, but they did enjoy looking at it and as it is not a touchscreen nor does it fold all the way round like a Yoga it should be no harder to replace than on other laptops.

Take a look over there.

For those of a certain age, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is very much the Ford Cortina GXL of its generation – the tippety-top of the line handed out to workers who almost, but don't quite, merit a MacBook Pro.
