We’re in the holiday spirit here in the hallowed halls of Technical Fowl, and we’d like to make someone’s holiday season a bit more bright. We have a Lenovo X1 Carbon 8th-gen laptop just kind of sitting around here, and we’re going to try (yes, try) to give it away. It may not be a gaming laptop, but his thing is like the Gucci of business-grade laptops, highly coveted by business and enterprise, and often backordered and stocked out. It’s thin, light, and I’ll say it – pretty damned sexy with that sleek ultrabook frame at under 2.5lbs. It’s great for business travel and portability, and is pretty solid on battery life, getting up to above 15 hours per charge. Here are the main specs:
- Model: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 [20U9002PUS]
- OS: Windows 10 Pro x64
- Proc: Intel 10th-generation i7-10610U (1.80GHz, up to 4.90GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 cores, 8 threads, 8MB Smart Cache)
- Memory: 16GB LPDDR3 2133MHz
- Graphics: Integrated Intel UHD Graphics
- Screen: 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS glossy, 170° viewing angle, 90% DCI-P3, Dolby Vision HDR 400, 500 nit
- Storage: 512GB SSD M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi 6 AX201 802.11AX (2×2), Bluetooth 5.1
- Features: Match-on-chip fingerprint reader, Fast Identity Online (FIDO) authentication capabilities, dTPM 2.0

Good luck everyone!
