Featuring a carbon-fiber reinforced chassis, the new X1 Carbon is just as durable as its predecessor, and it features a smaller footprint making it our lightest, thinnest X1 Carbon ever. Yet it’s packed with more power than ever: Windows 10 Pro, 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors, lightning-fast Thunderbolt 3, and a 14″ Quad- HD display. All that, with our legendary ThinkPad heritage—and support.
But MIL-SPEC Tough
©Constructed™ with satellite-grade carbon fiber, the new X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform nearly a dozen separate military-grade specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, humidity, solar radiation, and fungus. You can rely on ThinkPad despite what life throws your way.And of course, the full-sized, backlit keyboard is spill-resistant, as you’d expect from a ThinkPad X1 Carbon.The military specification tests are not intended to be a guarantee of performance under these environmental conditions.
Uncompromisingly Thin & Light…
Starting at just 1.18 kg/2.6 lbs, the new X1 Carbon is the lightest 14-inch business Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 16.5 mm / 0.65 inch thin, it’s extremely portable. Lightest 14-incher Yet” — LAPTOP,January 3, 2016
Connect Anywhere, Anytime…
With 4G LTE-A, you get the fastest, most advanced mobile broadband technology.
The new X1 Carbon features a Windows 10 Pro operating system and up to 7th generation Intel® 5-7300U with vPro—that means lots of manageability features and enhanced security. And of course the X1 Carbon is Skype for Business-certified, includes integrated speakers with Dolby® audio, and an HD webcam, so conference calls and video chats are a snap.
Ultrafast Storage Options
With ultrafast Samsung PCIe NVMe SSD storage, you can open files and applications more than two times faster than SATA SSD** Results represent the overall performance in the Storage Access test, which evaluates storage read / write performance in 10 applications. PCIe NVME SSD is an optional configuration. Products can also be configured with regular PCIe SSD or SATA SSD.
A 2K (2560 x 1440) display and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer. And with IPS technology you can view the screen from nearly 180-degrees. Plus it’s anti-smudge. Also available with FHD IPS (1920 x 1080) display. A convenient, wireless desktop docking beast” — Tom’s Hardware, January 3, 2016
