It's hard to find an Ultrabook with a better blend of rugged durability, performance, and portability than the fully loaded Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. A thin-and-light carbon fiber roll cage and magnesium-alloy case provide extreme protection and durability—more than tough enough to handle the rigors of business travel.
Then there's an Intel Core i7 processor, 240 GB solid state drive, and 8 GB of memory, all of which combine to speed you through the heaviest multitasking loads. The X1 Carbon is also a breeze to carry around all day, weighing just 3.4 pounds and standing less than an inch tall—perfect for the quick grab and go for those dashes from meeting to meeting or class to class.
Along with all the great features of Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro provides enhanced data protection with BitLocker and lets you connect to your corporate or school network with Domain join. You can also host a Remote Desktop Connection on your own PC so you can connect to it when you're using a different PC.
Work easier with a glass touchpad, a spill-resistant keyboard, a sturdy metal-hinge closure, and a redesigned hinge-closing mechanism with a magnetic latching support.
Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor delivers faster system performance, uses less power, and enables sharper graphics.
Backlit keyboard keeps you working or playing after the lights go down—great for a long flight or late nights in the office.
The 14-inch HD+ touch display with wide viewing angles allows for fast and fluid 10-finger touch control.
The X1 Carbon features Lenovo RapidCharge which can bring a dead battery back to 80% capacity after only 35 minutes on the charger.
A great way to get the most out of Windows.
