If your primary use case is productivity — editing documents, combing through spreadsheets, writing code or surfing the web — you want a laptop that feels good on your lap and helps you get more done in less time. Over the past several years, Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon series of laptops has been a leader in the productivity space thanks to excellent keyboards, a wide selection of ports and long battery life.
Starting at $1,106 ($1,847 as reviewed), the ninth generation X1 Carbon kicks things up a notch by upgrading to a 16:10 screen that fits more of your documents on screen at once. Add in excellent audio, over 15 hours of battery life and you have one of the best ultrabooks, whether you’re buying it for business or personal use.
