Lenovo’s premium Ultrabook might just get a touch more premium.
While it hasn’t gotten any official announcement, Lenovo’s website showed off its new product early this morning: the X1 Carbon Touch Ultrabook. As it is, the X1 Carbon is probably the most expensive Ultrabook around, and easily one of the most desirable: the sexy carbon fibre casing and understatedly classy ThinkPad design puts the X1 carbon in a class of its own.
Now, with the touch-centric Windows 8 coming along, Lenovo clearly isn’t ready to allow the X1 Carbon to fade into obsolete-dom. Perhaps the US website’s admins jumped the gun a little here, but they posted the X1 Carbon Touch page on the site, with The Verge spotting it. Sporting the same specs as the original X1 Carbon, the X1 Carbon Touch adds a 10-point multitouch panel – and nothing else (so far).
Unfortunately, when we visited the US Lenovo website, we found that the X1 Carbon Touch has been removed from the site – lending credence that it is more than just a Black Friday prank. Given that this was posted on Lenovo’s official website, we might just be seeing the sexy touch-enabled Ultrabook in December.
