There are very few laptops as appealing as the Thinkpad, and Lenovo have updated the X1 model with carbon fibre materials. We reviewed the X1 on Kitguru last September.
Lenovo have increased the screen size from 13 inch to 14 inch but the weight is down, thanks to the use of a carbon fibre rollcage. The new carbon fibre ThinkPad X1 is also the lightest 14 inch business class ultrabook available, say the company.
Lenovo are shipping the Carbon X1 with a 1600×900 resolution screen, a 720p HD camera which has face tracking capabilities and a backlit keyboard. It has built in 3G connectivity as well for business users. The machines will feature Intel third generation Ivy Bridge processors.
Lenovo claim that the new version of the X1 will feature the same ‘Rapid Charge’ feature, which means that the battery will recover from dead to 80% in only 30 minutes.
Pricing has not yet been confirmed but we expect it to be around the same price as the original, which means it should be an excellent purchase.
Kitguru says: Another award winner? We hope so.
