Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch -- Ultrabook with rugged carbon fiber construction and 10-finger touch technology

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch



First there was the X1 Carbon, with its unprecedentedly rugged carbon-fiber construction raising the bar for Ultrabook™ quality. It was already ultralight and ultradurable; now it's ultraresponsive, thanks to a capacitive touch panel that yields unbelievable response time to 10-finger touch. No delays, no herky-jerky lag in the cursor. Just smooth, fluid navigation via the touchscreen (and the glass touchpad), bringing new heights of performance to an already legendary machine.
