Lenovo’s new Intel Ivy bridge-based line of notebooks called the Thinkpad have finally been revealed. One of the more notable models is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
As an ultrabook, this laptop complies with Intel’s requirement of having a thin and lightweight body weighing only three pounds. It also features a matte high resolution display with 1600 x 900 pixels. The carbon fiber casing is also matte, with a fingerprint resistant finish.
Under the hood, it runs on an Intel core processor with a CPU speed of 1700 Mhz. It also comes with a 131072 MB solid state disk for storage and Intel HD 4000 for the graphics processing; a 4096 MB of RAM is available.
Lenovo’s TrackPoint system is present on the device which has a touchpad integrated with a pointing nub. A special rapid charging technology enables the device to be charged for up to 80 percent in as little as 30 minutes.
Present on the physical interface are a fingerprint scanner, a 3.5 mm headphones jack, Mini Displayport, SDHC Card Slot, and USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports.
Lenovo hasn’t revealed a price for this notebook yet. However, judging from the trend with other ultrabooks, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon will likely have a price tag under $1000.
