Lenovo Thinkcentre X1 review: All-in-one design done right

Jon L. Jacobi | July 18, 2016
Sleek, minimal, and quick are how an all-in-one should be.

One more plus for the Thinkcentre: The user’s guide shows you how to repair and upgrade the X1, which is quite easy. I’m little tired of vendors who say there are no user-serviceable parts when a mere half-dozen screws would allow access. Kudos to Lenovo.

Conclusion

To be perfectly honest, I’d like to see Lenovo take the outstanding basic Thinkcentre X1 design and realize it to the max: a 4K UHD display, a PCIe-NVMe SSD, Type C USB 3.1, and...a red (not yellow) always-on USB port.

As it stands, however, 1080p is all most users need. The Thinkcentre X1 is easily fast enough, and forking over one $1,000 bill (instead of two) for a computer is more in line with the average budget. So let’s forget the wish list and just say that if you’re looking for a solid-performing, exceptionally well-designed all-in-one, this machine should be your starting point.  And probably ending point.
