Upon the unveiling of the new ThinkPad laptops, one model stood out above the rest - The ThinkPad X1 Carbon. It has a carbon fiber material for its casing that makes it thin, durable, strong, and light all at the same time. It's a 14-inch laptop that weighs three pounds (1.36kg) while being 18 millimeters thick. USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports are present along with a Mini DisplayPort jack, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an SD card slot, and a fingerprint reader. Users won't have to worry about leaving fingerprints since the whole chassis is coated with a fingerprint-resistant matte finish. In addition, videos and photos are viewed through its 1600 x 900-pixel resolution panel that touts 300 nits of brightness.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon runs on Intel's Ivy Bridge processor, like most recently released PCs. There's also an optional integrated cellular connectivity and a SIM card slot. Charging the battery to 100% would only take less than an hour due to its Rapid Charge option. Pricing is still unknown but shipping will be in the next two months.
