It's hard to find an Ultrabook that offers a better blend of durability, performance, and portability than the award-winning ThinkPad X1 Carbon. A thin-and-light carbon fiber roll cage and magnesium-alloy case deliver excellent protection and strength—a great mix for handling all the bumps, knocks, and drops of everyday use.
An Intel Core i5 processor, 128GB solid state drive, and 4GB of memory combine to speed you through the heaviest multitasking loads. The X1 Carbon is also a breeze to carry wherever you go. It weighs just over three pounds and measures only a half-inch thick at its slimmest point, making it the thinnest ThinkPad yet.

The unique Adaptive Keyboard automatically changes the row of function keys depending on what application you're in. It gives you less clutter, more function, and a streamlined keyboard that anticipates your needs.
Every little detail comes to vibrant life on the super-hi-res ThinkPad ColorBurst display—text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer.
Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor delivers speedy system performance, uses less power, and enables sharper graphics.
A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip further encrypts your critical information, keeping you safe from hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys to your personal data.
The X1 Carbon delivers up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge.* And if you do run low, don't fret—with Lenovo RapidCharge you get 80% battery restored in just under an hour.
The X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. It's undergone eight military specification tests for extreme conditions, and easily handles spills, drops, and heat exposure.
Even with its ultrathin design, the X1 Carbon is cooler than previous models thanks to re-engineered fan blades that deliver cool and quiet performance.
