The X1 Carbon just got better
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a cool piece of kit. It’s extremely light, had enough horsepower to get us through our normal work routine and wasn’t a pain to carry around. Seems like Lenovo is making the already excellent X1 Carbon better by adding a higher, Retina-like display on it, along with a new Adaptive keyboard and a new vPro complaint Haswell processor. The new keyboard doesn’t mess with the already excellent one on the X1, instead just gives users context-specific controls that light up when needed. Let’s check the specs:
Lenovo X1 Carbon (2014)
- Up to 4th gen Intel Core i7 processor
- Windows 8.1
- 14-inch WQHD (2560×1440) IPS display with available 10-point multi-touch; 270/300 nits (touch/non-touch) display
- Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 (GT2) & 5000 (GT3) video graphics
- Up to 8GB (on board) memory
- Up to 512 GB SSD storage
- Bluetooth 4.0; 802.11ac; NFC; 4G + LTE WWAN
The new X1 Carbon also features NFC functionality, as well as LTE connectivity. Lenovo also decided to up the battery life on the X1 Carbon as well, with the refreshed notebook promising at least nine hours of useful battery life. If you ever do manage to drain the battery on the X1 Carbon, Lenovo’s Rapid Charge technology promises to get 80% of the X1 Carbon’s juice back within 1 hour.
As expected, nice things don’t come cheap, and you can expect the X1 Carbon to start at an eye watering $1299 or around Php 58071 without taxes or duties.
