The laptop and ultra book market has been abuzz with HP, Dell and Samsung unveiling their hi-end tech books in the recent weeks. Lenovois also picking up the line by presenting the “the world’s lightest 14-inch professional Ultra book.” Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the lightest and thinnest ThinkPad built so far with a 14 inch display and weighing only about 3 pounds. This latest entry in the line of ThinkPad series is very unique just because of its premium Carbon Fiber roll cage enclosure. The X1 Carbon actually got that name from its exceptionally strong and resilient carbon chassis. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also having its signature ThinkPad features like redesigned keyboard and Intel Ivy Bridge chips. The Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 3770k is the latest powerhouse with increased CPU performance and decreased power consumption along with the ability to provide better high definition graphics. It can be viewed as the successor to the X1 ThinkPad which was launched last year with 13 inch screen. But Now X1 carbon has 14 inch screen and the resolution is also changed from 1366 x 768 to 1600 x 900 with Vibrant Hi-Resolution technology and wide angles of viewing. With backlighting keyboard, the users will be exposed to a refreshed and comfortable tech book experience while using X1 carbon.
This particular device is very surprisingly thin and light. People with X1 experience will be able to recognize the feather light experience of X1 carbon. The thickest point in the laptop is only 18 mm thick. The carbon fiber roll gives the case durability, strength as well as flexibility to adapt to its unique design. The users are also given a choice of using a track pad and also the classic pointing stick with buttons like in real mouse for mouse controls and actions. Along with integrating the powerful and performance packed Ivy bridge chips, Lenovo is also packing up with the other new features like Rapid Charge technology, which will recharge the battery up to 80 percent in less than half an hour. It also has Intel’s vPro technology, which enables smooth monitoring, maintenance and management of the hardware features.
The X1 carbon is also armed with 720p front-facing camera with Face Tracking feature, which can also be seen in the T430 and 430s. The wide array of ports in X1 carbon is really fantastic as you’ve full-size USB ports, a Mini Display Port socket, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an SD card slot and a fingerprint reader. With all this at hand, this mean machine is just your perfect workhorse, assisting you in daily corporate routine; however, the price tag attached to it is still under the wraps.
