What is the temperature with i5 CPUs? Can we put it on the lap? I dont't think most buyers will choose the most expensive one.

Why is this in the Multimedia category?

Hello,

The Carbon is usable on the lap for typical browsing and word processing. It does get a little warm on the bottom when under more CPU-intensive tasks and it's likely that this will also be the same case for the i5 options. With that in mind, keeping the vent grilles clear of obstructions will make a large difference.

The multimedia category was automatically (and incorrectly) assigned to the Carbon in the database. This has been fixed, thanks!

also, is the keyboard on the X1C (87%) seriously worse than the Macbook Air's (90%), IMO, awful keyboard? this is perhaps the only review site that rates the X1C's keyboard as not best in the ultrabook/subnotebook category.

also, the weight of the Air and X1C are nearly identical, but the Air scores 2% points better there. is this because of the X1C's larger and heavier charger? if yes, then that should be stated.

and what is DVD noise?

there is a clear sloppiness with this particular review not found in other very high quality notebookcheck reviews. perhaps one of the regular reviewers could take a look at the X1C?

I don't agree with the low rating, especially when it comes to gaming. Come on, guys, nobody buys an Ultrabook and expects to play Crysis with the highest details. Casual games are no problem for the HD4000, and I don't believe taking lots of points off just for gaming is justified.

IMO, the Carbon should gain lots of points for the incredible cooling system alone! Not to mention it's the first to use an exclusive carbon body instead of the plastic/metal chassis of everyone else out there.

Its weighted average system and gaming weights %2 on overall rating. And %65 is overrated for hd4000 comparing gt6xx's etc imho.

Would someone please let me know with the x1 carbon:

How is the keyboard noise when typing? I need to know cause I need a laptop with very quite keys i can use in a meeting without disturbing others.

Is typing quieter than your standard laptop?

Thanks for your reply.

The final score has been adjusted after a corrected battery life score and after Lenovo confirmed with us the maximum supported resolution of the mini Displayport (2560x1600).

DVD noise is simply system noise during DVD quality video playback. For notebooks with optical drives, this will naturally be higher in volume.

Specifically, the QWERTY keys of the X1C are softer and generally more quiet than a standard notebook. The Enter and Space Bar keys are comparatively much louder and are more likely to be a disturbance in small meetings.
