By making use of Inel’s fourth-generation Core processors (with Intel vPro management features), up to 8GB of memory, and up to a 512GB SSD, Lenovo has a new X1 Carbon ultrabook Thinkpad computer, that defines what tit means to be a super thin-and-light system, with Windows 8.1 on-board. The standard display is a TN (twisted nematic) screen with a resolution of 1600 by 900 pixels, but buyers can step up to an IPS (in-plane switching) screen with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels; both screen resolutions have optional touchscreen models.
An “adaptive” keyboard is another feature Lenovo is boasting with the new X1 Carbon. The top row of function keyss hav been replaced by a strip that changes depending on the application being used; Microsoft Word, for example, would show and transform the top strip to show relevant functions for the application. Lastly, there’s an added 70 percent improvement over the original— that’s about the battery life, which will recharge to 80 percent in less than 1 hour.
Prices will start at $1299 when the X1 Carbon launches later in January.
