The Lenovo ThinkPad has always been quite a sturdy, dependable notebook. We have already seen one of their best, the X1 last year, but since Ivy Bridge has rolled into town, the X1 has gotten quite a kick ass refresh. First of all, the new X1 has grown 1inch into a 14inch ultraportable laptop and is being marketed as an Ultrabook. Even though it’s gained an inch, it hasn’t beome thicker, instead it has been trimmed down. What’s the secret you may ask? Carbon Fibre.
Lenovo have gone all out with the new Thinkpad X1 Carbon, bumping up the resolution to 1600 x 900, tweaked the backlit, spill-resistant keyboard and added 3G connectivity as an optional extra. Under the hood you will also get Intel’s new ivy Bridge processor with the new vPro management technology and integrated graphics.
What do you think? While the specs are still quite up in the air, we can’t wait to actually try one out!
