X1 Carbon Gen 11

#1 Post by pksw » Sun Apr 30, 2023 1:06 am

My X1C Gen 11 arrived and so far seems pretty standard.

I've come from a X1 Yoga Gen 4, and prior to that a X1C Gen 3.

The keyboard and finish seems less glossy and more matt finish compared to the X1 Yoga, which felt more metal in construction.

I got the non-touch OLED screen which is quite nice but the resolution of 2800x1800 is a little less than the Yoga which was 3840x2160 and touchscreen. I can't really tell the difference in resolution on a screen this size, and I never used the touch screen except when using the pen to sign documents. Viewing angles and brightness are good.

The keyboard feels the same as the previous models - my fingers aren't noticing any change in the layout when typing.

It's hard to gauge battery life, as I'm comparing it to a 4yo machine with a degraded battery, but so far I can get through half a day, but will see what it's like when playing a movie.

Overall, it just feels like the same laptop, just with the familiar keyboard, trackpoint etc which is the experience I want, but with 32gb of RAM and i7-1370P CPU which is noticeably faster on my large spreadsheets.

Fire away with any questions - the biggest change is getting used to Windows 11. I could have downgraded or reinstalled my own version of Windows 10, but figured I'd give it a chance.

How are you finding the battery life?
