ThinkPad X131e laptop
Long Battery-Life &
Incredibly Lightweight.
Work wherever, whenever, with ThinkPad® X Series ultraportable laptops and our ultrathin, ultralight Ultrabook™ inspired by Intel®, the X1 Carbon. Lenovo's Power Manager, carefully selected low-voltage processors, less power-hungry displays, and the latest battery technology allow hours of unplugged computing, perfect for on-the-go. Lenovo RapidCharge, designed to last three times longer than a standard notebook battery and charge up to 80% capacity in just 30 to 35 minutes, makes the X1 Carbon, the X1, and the X1 Hybrid ideal for travelers — as does Instant Media Mode, exclusive to the X1 Hybrid, which plays media for twice as long as on a standard Windows machine, with no wait time. Plus Lenovo Battery Stretch lets you temporarily extend battery life — get up to 24 hours on the ThinkPad X230 with a single charge! Maximum battery life depends on how system is used and requires configuration with optional extended-life and/or external batteries. In fact, your X230 will retain a charge for more than 30 days when in standby mode.

X Series models weigh as little as 3 pounds, or less, as is the case with our newest model, the X230, as well as the X1 and the X120e. The X120e, and its more colorful siblings, the X121e, X130e, and X131e are just 1-inch thin (1.3-inches for the X130e/X131e) with an 11.6-inch display and full-sized, spill-resistant keyboard. X121e, X130e, and X131e all include a choice of Midnight Black or Heatwave Red, with a refined, soft-touch matte finish. Additional colors for the X130e and X131e are available on orders of 3,000 laptops or more. X220 and X230 feature a 12.5 HD display.

Our thinnest ThinkPad ever is also the world's lightest 14-inch business-grade Ultrabook™, the X1 Carbon. Weighing in at less than 3 lbs and just 18.8 mm thin — or less than the diameter of a penny — when the lid is closed, its sleek design belies its durability. Made with carbon fiber throughout, as well as a carbon fiber roll cage, the X1 Carbon features enhanced structural integrity while its weight remains minimized. Additionally, the X1 Carbon is one of the first Ultrabooks to offer Intel® vPro technology, which enables businesses to manage, protect, repair, and locate assets from anywhere in the world.

Powered for Productivity.
Our X Series laptops are built for speed, letting you use time to focus on your business—not your computer. Blazing fast technology quickens the pace of doing business so you can do more with less time. Technology features vary by model.
...three pounds on the nose for a system this robust and a screen this large feels like cheating. There's a full Thinkpad keyboard here that's spill resistant and backlit. And the display isn't just big, it's matte...Most impressive, though, was the overall build quality. If the MacBook Air is a porcelain doll, the X1 Carbon is a G.I. Joe strapped with Kevlar.

Meant to endure. With the X131e and X130e, which are specifically designed for durability in the rigorous K-12 school system, a rubber bumper cushions the top cover for added protection, while hinges and ports are further strengthened. The bezel with integrated webcam uses thicker plastic than other X Series models. Likewise with the spill-resistant, full-sized keyboard — comfortably curved keys are made even stronger. In fact, for the X131e, gaps between keys have been reduced by 60% to decrease the likelihood of keys being removed.

Magnificent Multimedia Features.Features vary by model.
X Series includes superior VoIP experience with HD camera and HD microphones for advanced noise and echo cancellation.Optimized VoIP features not available on X120e. Plus, the X1 Carbon and the X230 are both Polycom® ready and the 720p HD webcam includes face tracking for most excellent video conferencing. Convenient one-touch access with microphone, speaker, and camera mute buttons allow for quick and easy control. Also, on the X131e, the top cover includes LED activity lights to clearly indicate the status of wireless connectivity and power/sleep modes.

The preloaded Skype™ application on the X130e and X131e is ideal for video calls and makes it a cinch for learning via social networks. Enjoy premium on-the-go entertainment with integrated Dolby® Home Theater® and SuperBright LCD display (minimally 300 nits) on the X1, the X1 Carbon, and X1 Hybrid — or on the new 2012 X230 and the X131e models, enjoy the crisp, clear surround sound experience of Dolby® Advanced Audio™ v2.
