Review on X1 Carbon Gen-5 (circa 2017)

#1 Post by w0qj » Sun Apr 02, 2017 12:36 pm

Here is a batch of actual hands-on reviews on X1 Carbon Gen-5 (circa 2017), which uses Kaby Lake processors ! ... 160.0.html ... view-52892

As an aside, it looks like Microsoft is about to force "no more Windows Update for Windows 7" on Kaby Lake unfortunately.
ie: X1 Carbon Generation 5 (X1C5) ultimately cannot run Windows 7 (Windows Update disabled): ... en-systems

Another idea: Run Windows 7 as a Virtual Machine in X1C5 ;)
Daily Driver: X1 Carbon 4th Gen (X1C-4): i7-6600U 2.6MHz; 16GB DDR3 1866 MHz; 1TB PCIe-NVMe; 14" WQHD 2560x1440; LTE EM7455 Mobile Broadband; Win7 Pro 64bit
Current Thinkpads: X1C-4 | X1C-3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)
Also: IBM Thinkpad era computer bag !
