[Specs, Info, and Prices] Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (10th Gen, 2022) and ThinkPad X1 Yoga (7th Gen, 2022) – spicy designs and spicy hardware

The ThinkPad X1 series offers some of the more extravagant Lenovo laptops. The X1 subbrand is entirely dedicated to exploring new areas of laptop design and engineering, with materials such as carbon, titanium, among the most prominent. Today we have the X1 Carbon (10th Gen) and the X1 Yoga (7th Gen), which bring similarities and differences when it comes to the design, versatility, and hardware options.

Here is our quick overview of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (10th Gen, 2022) and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga (7th Gen, 2022).

Design

In terms of design, the X1 Carbon retains the same body as last year’s laptop, featuring a lid that is made out of carbon fiber, with an optional weave pattern also being available, along with a magnesium base and bottom panels. This should make the device pretty durable, as magnesium is a really tough metal, even stronger than aluminum. Carbon fiber on the other hand isn’t as rigid but can withstand a lot of abuse, without cracking under the pressure. It’s no wonder it is used in high-performance race cars, which want to be both light and resilient, being able to absorb impact very well.

The X1 Yoga has a simpler design, with an aluminum lid, base, and bottom panel. All in all, this should contribute to a very rigid device with next to no flexes and bends. We cannot forget about the 360-degree hinge, which also should withstand its fair share of torment, opening, and closing often and with smoothness.

WeightHeight
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (10th Gen, 2022)1.12 kg (2.5 lbs)15.36 mm (0.60″)
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (7th Gen, 2022)1.38 kg (3 lbs)15.53 mm (0.61″)

Display

Both laptops offer similar display options, with several 14-inch 16:10 displays. The base models come with an FHD+ IPS display with up to 500 nits of brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 100% sRGB coverage. They also share a 4K UHD+ panel also with 500 nits of peak brightness, but with a 1500:1 contrast ratio and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. The X1 Carbon offers an additional 2.2K QHD+IPS display with 400 nits of brightness.

Specifications and features

The laptops have the same hardware options, offering four Intel Alder Lake CPUs, with the low-powered U-series, as well as the more powerful P-series. In total, you can choose between Core i5-1245U, Core i5-1250P, Core i7-1265U, and Core i7-1270P. All of them come with either the 80EU or 96EU versions of the Iris Xe Graphics G7, which are superb performers in the iGPU field.

The X1 Carbon offers good I/O coverage, with two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI 2.0b port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. There are also a total of four microphones and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.

Going over to the X1 Yoga, it uses its keyboard for ventilation, siphoning fresh air through the keycaps, while using the rear vents for an exhaust, creating a clear pattern for how the air travels through the laptop.
