Number three we have the Lenovo ThinkPad X1. One extreme several of your is recommended Lenovo and included the Yoga and Idea Pad models as well but the ThinkPad X1 got the most votes for Leno. Lenovo looks more business-like maybe because I use one at work but this laptop is much more subtle than the gaming laptops in this roundup. The keys are easy to type on but I don’t care for the trackpad which seems to me to catch up to the processor at times. Otherwise, it’s just your everyday laptop with good power.
