Lenovo has just released the world’s lightest 14-inch ultrabook at CES 2014 in Las Vegas —-the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Weighing just 2.8 founds, it’s absolutely light and durable enough from its carbon-fiber-made parts.
Running this lightest utrabook is Intel’s latest Haswell chips up to Core i7 as well as vPro that can be paired with Intel HD 4400 or 5000 graphics options. You can also have maximum RAM at 8GB configuration while the storage can go up to 512GB SSD. There is also a fingerprint reader and TPM for security and manageability.
Interestingly, the new X1 Carbon also features the Adaptive Keyboard, which dynamically adjusts based on the software or application being used to highlight the most relevant keys and it also integrates voice and gesture control, allowing users to interact with their PC in modern and familiar ways —-basically, that’s most of the Windows 8.
The display also for this new ultrabook was improved with ColorBurst Display that delivers sharper, brighter images at higher resolutions. Furthermore, it’s ultimately charging fast with promise of 80% in less than an hour to its 9-hour capable battery pack (which is improved by 70% from its previous version). You can also add the optional built-in 4G support to further improve your on-the-go computing.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon models start at $1299 in Amazon.com and availability will begin later this month.
You can also grab the OneLink Dock Pro is available now at $179 for wire-clutter free cable interfaces for your ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
