Lenovo Thinkpad XL Carbon



Last year’s edition of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon was described as both the lightest and thinnest by its maker. But the 2016 refresh takes things to a new level by parading a slimmer and lighter design. At a weight of just 1.18 kilograms, it is described as the world’s lightest 14-inch business ultrabook.

It is lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Air. The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is thinner at only 16.5 millimetres. Yet, in spite of its slimness and lightness, it is built to withstand rugged handling considering the satellite-grade carbon fibre that is used for its construction. Lenovo claims the business laptop has undergone almost a dozen military-grade specification tests.


When it is time to sit back and enjoy some movies or play games, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon looks ready to support awesome user experience. Its 14-inch diagonal display boasts an impressive Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.

The antiglare screen is based on IPS technology which ensures wide viewing angles of almost 180 degrees. There is also a Full HD IPS display option.


Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is equipped to deliver solid performance to enable business users get things done more efficiently. It is powered by a sixth-generation Intel Core processor (up to Core i7) with vPro, supported by very generous system memory of up to 16 GB.

The ultrabook will boot the Pro edition of the latest Windows 10 operating system. For storage, zippy PCIe NVMe solid-state drives, which are said to be 2X faster than SATA SSDs, is provided. The capacity of the drives goes up to 1 TB.
