Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, world’s lightest business Ultrabook

For the longest time, ThinkPad’s are known to be bulky, unattractive but very durable and gets the job done. Lenovo changed everything with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the world’s lightest 14-inch business-class Ultrabook.

Seeing the ThinkPad X1 Carbon made me hate my current ThinkPad at the office which I always find every reason not to bring home because of its bulk. At just 2.99 lbs and 18.9mm thin, this notebook is definitely easy to carry around within or outside the office.

The lightness is made possible with its carbon fiber construction although it’s by no means a pansy when it comes to durability. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon passed eight US military test for durability including low pressure, humidity, vibration, high and low temperature, temp shock, dust and physical shock. This notebook has all the hardware construction inside to protect your data.

Configuration for the Thinkpad X1 Carbon comes with 3rd Gen Intel Core Processors with vPro technology for added security, SSD drives coupled with Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 3.0 for really fast boot and wake up times. You can also have it equipped with 3G mobile broadband and hotspot if you mostly work outside the office.

The 14-inch screen has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution with a 400 nits brightness. It is protected by a Gorilla Glass panel and you can even tilt it up to a flat 180 degrees.

You’ll also get a backlit keyboard with Lenovo’s comfortable concave keys and that familiar ThinkPad trackpoint. The multi-gesture glass surface touchpad is almost the same as other ThinkPads but with flat click buttons which still has that right and natural feedback.

    this will be my next baby, would this be available for consumer market?

  2. Is there anyway to open the bottom part and swap that measly 256GB with a 512GB SSD? Para maiba naman sa Macbook Pro na may Retina Display…

    • not sure if 512GB SSD is readily available but if it is, you can always contact your supplier and have it configured that way before selling it to you.
