A SMARTER WAY TO WORK
Introducing the New X1 Carbon — our third iteration of the popular Carbon Series incorporates feedback from users — like you. We've taken the best of the past, and incorporated essential technologies of today to bring you a system with legendary usability and uncompromising performance.
Without saying too much, it's simply the thinnest ThinkPad ever built. But don't let its ultra-slim profile fool you — the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of the most powerful fighters in its lightweight class.
With the NewX1 Carbon, you're getting a stunning QHD display featuring practical anti-glare technology for crisper text and brighter images - so you can work longer, and focus better, without the eye strain. And, with optional multitouch technology, you'll discover new and more intuitive ways to interact with your device.
You don't have time to stop for a charge between all those back-to-back meetings, and we've kicked up the battery life on this year's model to help make sure you don't have to. But when you do finally run low, those pit stops will be brief with the X1 Carbon's exclusive RapidCharge battery technology.
From plane to car, bike to office - let's just say that however you get around, the X1 Carbon was built to withstand the rigors of even the most strenuous travel plans, and fit where you need it.
