On the other hand, the battery in the X1 Carbon Touch's pooped out in even less time, and it's not swappable. But the X1 Carbon Touch's battery charges faster, its 14-inch IPS screen delivers higher resolution (2560x1440 pixels), and it scored higher in our benchmarks. Both machines are built tough, but as I pointed out earlier, Lenovo's is much lighter. On the final other hand is the X1 Carbon's current price tag. The machine wasn't even listed on Lenovo's website when I wrote this review, and the third-party retailers that did have it on offer priced it considerably higher than what Lenovo quoted us when we reviewed it.
Bottom line: If money were no barrier, I'd buy Lenovo's X1 Carbon Touch. But Dell's cheaper Latitude E7440 even though it weighs more. It's an exceptionally good business laptop.
