Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch Ultrabook Lightens up with Carbon Fiber

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 12, 2012

Ultrabook is definitely one of those buzzwords that has been overused in the past couple of years, as PC manufacturers try to put their own spin on MacBook-like laptops. Now, with the release of Windows 8, there are a plethora of new ultrabooks that offer some pretty cool options.

Touch gestures are becoming commonplace on Windows 8 laptops, offering hybrid functions between ordinary laptops and tablets. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is supposed to be the lightest 14-inch touchscreen ultrabook on the market, using carbon fiber components to help lighten the load.

The X1 is lightweight at 3.4 lbs, and measures only 20.8 mm in thickness. It sports a 10-finger touch sensitive 14-inch 1600×900 resolution display, and a choice of Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. It’s also got a HD-face-tracking camera, dual microphones, Bluetooth 4.0, and an integrated fingerprint reader. Storage is provided by a 128GB SSD, and you can opt for either 4GB  or 8GB of RAM.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is available for late December shipping, and prices range from $1,499 to $1,699 (USD).
