The reason to bring it up with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is simple: whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional in any kind of content creation field, you have a pretty good idea of what “prosumer” means. Consumer grade hardware and software are generally (but not always) not worth your time, but professional grade kit often requires a substantial investment. Thus there’s the middle ground: prosumer. Prosumer kit is typically fully featured, but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. You get 90% of the power of professional grade stuff at a fraction of the cost.

The name has a cachet to it, and you have a good idea of what it represents. In the case of the X1 Carbon, we get a strong and sturdy build, great quality display, and the best chiclet keyboard in the business. We also get the kind of price premium we’ve come to expect for the ThinkPad brand, a premium that predates Lenovo’s ownership.
