ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Features

Available With 10-Point Multitouch Screen
10-point multitouch screen improves accuracy, making touch-browsing and selecting more responsive and precise.
Liberating Controls: Voice & Hand Gestures
 Give a multimedia business presentation on the X1 Carbon Ultrabook 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 business Ultrabooks are the toughest ThinkPads 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 Ultrabook 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 14" Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 0.7" thin, it's the thinnest ThinkPad ever.
Business Ultrabooks With 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.
