Processor

One thing we haven't mentioned so far is that our comparison is not apples-to-apples in one important sense: the XPS 13 is marketed as a consumer laptop, while the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is intended for business users. But the lines are pretty blurry these days, and the horsepower of the XPS 13 is only making them blurrier. The XPS 13 offers eighth-gen Intel Core i5 or i7 chips, going up to the Core i7-8550U (quad-core, with a clock speed of up to 4GHz). That is nearly as fast the top-level processor available in the X1 Carbon -- the Core i7-8650U (quad-core, up to 4.2Ghz). In our tryouts, both laptops showed admirable performance around multi-tasking -- meaning that you can expect to get a lot done, fast, on either the X1 Carbon or the XPS 13.
