ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Features

Uncompromisingly Thin
Starting at just 2.877 lbs, the new X1 Carbon is the lightest 14" Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 0.70" thin, it's the thinnest ThinkPad ever.
Faster Storage Experience
The new X1 Carbon now features Samsung PCIe SSD options for the best storage experience.
Longer Battery Life
The new X1 Carbon delivers up to 10.9 hours of battery life on a single charge. And if you do run low, don't fret: with RapidCharge technology you get 80% battery restored in just under an hour.
Available With 10-Point Multitouch Screen
An optional 10-point multitouch screen improves accuracy, making touch-browsing and selecting more responsive and precise.
Stunning Display
QHD (2560 x 1440) display 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 (touchscreen option includes 270 nit). Plus it’s anti-smudge. Also available with FHD TN (1920 x 1080) 300 nit display.
Practically Indestructible: Tested to Military Specifications
Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber, the new X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform nearly a dozen separate military-grade specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water, humidity, solar radiation, and fungus—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, the new 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. Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip further encrypts your critical information. Plus, ThinkEngine, a unique system-management chip, monitors 33 sensors simultaneously and delivers improved thermal and power efficiency, up to 30-day standby, faster resume times, enhanced security, and anti-tampering measures.
Patently Cool: Revolutionary Thermal Technology
Even with its ultrathin design, the X1 Carbon stays cooler than ever. In fact, our patented fan blades provide the same cool and quiet performance you expect from a ThinkPad.
