I’ve always been a fan of Lenovo (back then IBM), this latest release from the brand – the ThinkPad X1 Carbon continues IBM’s traditional laptop looks but packs a big punch. To start off with, Lenovo claims the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon to be the thinnest and lightest 14″ ultrabook ever.
By reinforcing the laptop with carbon fibre, Lenovo managed to keep this beast light at just under three pounds and just 0.71-inch thick. It has a 1600×900 screen, a spill resistant a backlit keyboard, a 720p front facing webcam, embedded 3G connectivity (mobile broadband pay-as-you-go option as per Lenovo’s product page), and RapidCharge feature (charging the battery to 80% in as short as 30 minutes).
All the above features do some extremely attractive and as you’ll have guessed, its aimed right at the MacBook Air arena. Unfortunately, we’re still a month or two away from more official specs and pricing details to be released, but do watch this space, we anticipate the ThinkPad X1 Carbon to be a definite hit among PC users.
