Today we are taking a look at the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon from Lenovo, which features a Multitouch screen. The review sample we received features a Core i7 processor, 240GB Solid State Drive and 8GB of DDR3 memory. With prices starting around £1,400 this laptop targets the high end enthusiast and business user – but is it worth the money?

We put the diminutive business machine through a series of synthetic and real world tests today.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is available in various configurations. Our review sample received a processor upgrade from the basic Core i5 3427U to the Core i7 3667U, which has 4 MB of cache with a Turbo speed of 3.2ghz. The Touch screen is an LED backlit model with 1600×900 resolution and features a 720p high definition front facing web cam for chatting and conference calls. Our sample also has a 240GB Intel Solid State drive and 8GB of DDR3 memory.

Lenovo have yet to upgrade their ThinkPad X1 range with the latest Intel mobile processors, which is a little disappointing especially when considering the integrated HD graphics improvements.

The starting price is £1,405.99 and you can configure your own on the Lenovo website over here. The specific configuration we have in for review is £1,727.85 inc vat.

    Great laptops, bit expensive for me, but for a business user they rock. weird they haven’t released a new haswell range yet, maybe later in the year?
