The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano is a thin and light laptop that weighs just about 2 pounds and measures about 0.66 of an inch thick. But despite its compact size, the laptop is a productivity workhorse.
It has a 13 inch, 2160 x 1350 display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a matte, non-glare finish, support for up to an Intel Core i7-1180G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage, and a keyboard that largely lives up to the ThinkPad reputation.
Lenovo loaned me a ThinkPad X1 Nano to test for purposes of this review, and while it may not be the fastest laptop available with an 11th-gen Intel Core processor, it bags respectable benchmark scores and provides strong real-world performance for most basic computing tasks. I’ve been using the laptop for the past few weeks and I’ve found that it’s more than up to the task of day-to-day work and leisure activities. Despite being one of the smallest 13 inch laptops around, it also has some of the best speakers I’ve heard on a compact notebook.
It’s also hard to understate just how lightweight this laptop feels. It’s the sort of computer you can place in a backpack and forget that it’s there. You may have to double-check your bag before leaving the house to make sure you haven’t forgotten to pack it. Even the power adapter is small: it doesn’t take up much more space than a phone charger.
