carb is Thinkpad X1 Carbon 7th gen with i7, a 14” 4k screen, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD.
It’s wrapped with a d-brand carbon skin, because I really hated how easily it’d collect fingerprints and smudges otherwise.
It’s a lovely machine running Arch Linux with
bspwm; works just great as my portable workhorse.
I love how small and light it is - I can literally lift it with two fingers.
I gave up trying to work around this weird microphone on Linux – the only thing that I’m missing.
Battery life is acceptable; Depending on the workload I’m getting 6-9 hours
tlp and some thinkpad-specific tweaks (such as throttling
lenovo_fix systemd service etc.).
