The New ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is perfect for users who want a laptop with high performance technology, mobility and durability while the ThinkPad Tablet 8 possess essential technologies that professionals require to be successful.
“Lenovo continues to push the boundaries of design and technology as we aspire to create the best products in the market.

The New ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is a beautiful contradiction. Uncompromisingly light, weighing only 2.8 pounds, it is virtually indestructible. The lightest 14” Ultrabook in the world has all the power and durability that the modern professional requires. Born from the same stock as aircrafts and racing cars, the X1 Carbon Touch is forged from Carbon Fiber, which weighs less than magnesium and aluminum but is stronger than both.
The X1 products have a reputation for pushing boundaries, both in design and usability, and the new X1 Carbon Touch is no exception. It actually adapts to the way users work thanks to technology which is a whole generation ahead. The New X1 Carbon Touch features the Adaptive Keyboard, which dynamically adjusts based on the software or application being used to highlight the most relevant keys. The new Ultrabook is also equipped with gesture control, allowing users to interact with their PC in modern and familiar ways.
The New X1 Carbon Touch also improves the viewing and touch experiences for users. The new ColorBurst Display provides sharper, brighter images at higher resolutions with better viewing angles for a superior visual experience, whether users watch a movie or create presentations. And for customers who are on the move, the new X1 Carbon Touch utilizes Rapid Charge technology, providing an 80% charge in under an hour. Coupled with an up to 9-hour battery life (over 70% improvement from the last generation) and optional built-in 4G capability, the new X1 Carbon Touch has all the mobility and connectivity customers need wherever they go.
