Lenovo is redefining standards and surpassing expectations with its latest ThinkPad computers, especially the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This laptop will appeal to professionals and enthusiasts alike, so let’s see what we got here.
We never associate ruggedness with portability, but the X1 Carbon manages to pack both words in the same announcement. This laptop is light, weighing in at 2.9 pounds. It is also the thinnest ThinkPad ever, as well as the thinnest 14-inch UltraBook, measuring 0.7 inches in thickness. And because it’s made of carbon fiber, this laptop is able to take quite the beating!
Of course, the beloved track point is back, as well as the classical buttons between the trackpad and keyboard. This will make sure you stay efficient, but now that we know what’s outside, what do we have inside. Let’s take a look at the specs.
