    New ThinkPad X1 Carbon UltrabookFeatures

    Liberating Controls: Voice & Hand Gestures

    Give a multimedia presentation on the X1 Carbon without even touching the keyboard! Voice and 10 different hand gestures change the way you interact with your laptop.

    Uncommonly Intuitive Adaptive Keyboard

    The unique Adaptive Keyboard automatically changes the row of function keys depending on what application you're in. Less clutter, more function, and a streamlined keyboard that anticipates your needs.

    Stunning Display

    ThinkPad ColorBurst Display (WQHD, 2560 x 1440) and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer. 300 nit with IPS for nearly 180-degrees of wide-screen viewing. Plus it's anti-smudge. Also available with HD+ (1600 x 900) display.

    Practically Indestructible: Tested to Military Specifications

    Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber, X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform eight separate military specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water, and humidity—so you can laugh in the face of spills, drops, heat exposure, or anything else life throws your way.

    Business-Class Security

    Available with fingerprint reader, X1 Carbon lets you use biometrics for login, so the swipe of your finger becomes your password. Intel® security features and vPro options step up protection and enhance manageability when deploying upgrades. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip further encrypts your critical information.

    Patently Cool: Revolutionary New Thermal Technology

    Even with its ultrathin design, the new X1 Carbon stays cooler than ever. In fact, we re-engineered our patented fan blades—so X1 Carbon provides the same cool and quiet performance you expect from a ThinkPad.

    Uncompromisingly Thin

    Starting at just 2.83 lbs, the new X1 Carbon is the lightest 35.56cm (14) Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 17.72 mm thin, it's the thinnest ThinkPad ever.

    Longer Battery Life

    The new X1 Carbon delivers up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. And if you do run low, don't fret: with RapidCharge you get 80% battery restored in just under an hour.
