Uncompromisingly thin & light…
Starting at just 2.6 lbs (1.18 kg), the new X1 Carbon is the lightest 14-inch business Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 0.65 inch (16.5 mm) thin, it’s extremely portable.
But MIL-SPEC tough
Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber, the new X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform nearly a dozen separate military-grade specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, humidity, solar radiation, and fungus. You can rely on ThinkPad despite what life throws your way.
And of course, the full-sized, backlit keyboard is spill-resistant, as you’d expect from a ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
“The military specification tests are not intended to be a guarantee of performance under these environmental conditions.”
The new X1 Carbon features a Windows 10 Pro operating system and up to 6th generation Intel® i7-6600U with vPro—that means lots of manageability features and enhanced security. And of course the X1 Carbon is Skype for Business-certified, includes integrated speakers with Dolby® audio, and an HD webcam, so conference calls and video chats are a snap.
Ultrafast storage options
With ultrafast Samsung PCIe NVMe SSD storage, you can open files and applications more than two times faster than SATA SSD*
* Results represent the overall performance in the Storage Access test, which evaluates storage read / write performance in 10 applications. PCIe NVME SSD is an optional configuration. Products can also be configured with regular PCIe SSD or SATA SSD.
A 2K (2560 x 1440) display and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer. And with IPS technology you can view the screen from nearly 180-degrees. It’s also anti-smudge. Also available with FHD IPS (1920 x 1080) display.
Because your data is critical, we’ve enhanced security to keep you safer than ever. The X1 Carbon includes the Touch Sensor Fingerprint Reader, which is more reliable and accurate than typical swipe readers. Plus, this Ultrabook® also includes Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which is a specialized chip designed to secure hardware.
Connect anywhere, anytime…
With 4G LTE-A, you get the fastest, most advanced mobile broadband technology. And you can boost your productivity with the optional WiGig Dock, available with 2K display (coming soon), which lets you connect wirelessly for dual displays, audio devices, and more.
But stay unplugged
With the X1 Carbon, you can stay connected, yet go unplugged more than all day, as the battery lasts up to 10 hours*.
