Head-To-Head: New Apple MacBook Pro Vs. Lenovo X1 Carbon


While Apple is touting its updated MacBook Pro as tailored to the needs of professionals, the notebook maintains the unfortunate port setup of the previous models. Get ready to carry around some dongles because four USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports are all you will get with the MacBook Pro in terms of ports. Not exactly pro-friendly.

By comparison, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon features a wide variety of port options: two USB-A ports, two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD card reader, HDMI and a docking connector for native Ethernet.
