Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon: The Lightest Professional 14" Ultrabook
Lenovo officially announced today the all new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 14″ Ultrabook, one of the few ultrabooks that might just have you saying ‘MacBook what?’ This powerful laptop is remarkably thin and light, yet somehow it’s still durable and full of features. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook design is a great example of just how far into future we’ve thrusted, and in such a short amount of time.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook will be the world’s lightest 14″ laptop weighing in at 3lbs. While the official thickness is unknown, playing hands-on and referring to the stock images would lead us to believe its going to be among the thinnest 14″ Ultrabooks as well. It’s almost razor thin.
Lenovo did not compromise the durability of the X1 with its light and thin design. There’s a roll cage built out of a premium carbon fiber, a material known for its strength and light weight. The 14″ display is almost edge to edge. The display is a “vibrant hi-resolution HD+ screen” which is 300nit bright. The keyboard is backlit and still maintains the trusted ThinkPad feel.
The X1 Carbon screams ‘mobility’ with its design, which is why Lenovo intends to keep users ‘always connected’ with integrate mobile broadband 3G.
One of the most incredible features of the X1 Carbon is its rapid charge capabilities. It can charge up to 80% of the battery in 30 minutes. Other features include Dolby Home Theater v4, 720p face tracking camera, 3rd-Gen Intel Core I processor, ThinkPad Enhanced Experience 3.0, and vPro technology for enterprise management.
No word on pricing yet, but we can expect to see the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook sometime this summer.
