Screen positioning is easy to adjust and there’s plenty of range.

Dell’s stellar reputation in the monitor game is not ill–deserved and, perhaps, ought to be even stronger than it is. The company consistently puts out market– leading panels at mostly affordable prices. The 27–inch P2720DC, as you might imagine, is no exception — and the screen itself is only part of a winning combination.

Take, for instance, the stand. Simple to attach out of the box, not overly distracting, and perfectly inconspicuous next to an iMac or above a MacBook, it’s a fabulous piece of engineering. It tilts, swivels, and rises up and down with a mechanically–compensated action that makes everything particularly easy — and if you want to go vertical you can rotate it with a fingertip.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 (2021): A Superlative Aspirational System

We won’t try to keep you in suspense. When we reviewed last year’s model, we called the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon the best laptop in the world—though we later decided it shared that title with the Dell XPS 13 OLED—and it hasn’t done anything in its latest revision to change that state of affairs. The X1 Carbon Gen 9 catches up with the Dell and other elite ultraportables by moving to an 11th Generation Intel “Tiger Lake” Core processor and a slightly taller 16:10 rather than 16:9 screen aspect ratio. Its premium price and lack of an SD card slot still knock half a star off what would otherwise be a perfect five-star rating, but it effortlessly collects yet another Editors’ Choice award as the most desirable executive notebook on Earth.
