I recently picked up my new laptop for the holidays, and I have to say, it’s awesome.
I had been searching for a laptop for a while, and finally got my hands on one.
It’s a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon with an Intel Core i7-6500U processor, 16GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics card.
This is a good laptop for someone who’s just starting out with computers, but I wanted to give it a shot for someone like me who wants a great gaming laptop for gaming, multimedia, and video streaming.
And the best part?
I got it for $1,000!
So how did I go about picking one up?
The specs I picked are a bit of a stretch, but here’s what I’ve found so far: Processor Intel Core m3-7Y75-2.6GHz (4MB L3 Cache, 2MB L2 Cache) Intel Core M5-7E55-2GHz (3MB L1 Cache, 3MB L0 Cache) Memory 4GB LPDDR3-1866 1600MHz DDR3 1333MHz, 2GB L3 1366MHz, 4GB DDR3 1600MHz GPU Intel GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (8GB GDDR5) Storage 256GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD, 1TB SATA III HDD, 1.2TB M.2 PCIe SSD Networking 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 Ports HDMI, 1x USB 3.1 Type-C, SD Card Reader, USB 3 Ports Audio Realtek ALC892 codec, 1 USB 3 Port Battery 2200mAh (3100mAh included) Dimensions 13.7 x 8.6 x 0.8 inches (35.4 x 24.6 × 9.9mm) Weight 3.5 lbs.
(1.8kg) Warranty One year price tag $1 (estimate) (Source: Lenovo) If you’re interested in learning more about the Lenovo ThinkPads, Lenovo’s website is here.
The ThinkPad 1020 is a very similar laptop, but has a few differences.
It has a smaller 13.3 x 8 inches (33.1 x 24 x 7.2mm) display, a more powerful Core i5 processor, and a larger 8GB of DDR3 RAM.
It also has a more robust GPU, with the GPU now being Intel HD 530.
(The Intel HD 540, which was released in November, has a higher clock speed than the Core M-7 series.)
I love the ThinkPad line-up, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great, gaming-focused laptop for more than one computer.
But if you’re more into gaming, the ThinkPats 1020 will do just fine for you.
