Intel Inside: 12 Hot Mobile Devices From IDF 2012


Lenovo released the ThinkPad XI Carbon Ultrabook as a testament to the ThinkPad brand's 20-year anniversary. And while it's much thinner, lighter and faster than the first ThinkPads that hit U.S. shelves, the XI Carbon Ultrabook still maintains that air of business-class professionalism that makes a ThinkPad a ThinkPad.

The XI Carbon comes with Intel’s vPro platform for PC management, which can be leveraged by IT teams to automatically deploy patch updates, remotely troubleshoot PCs and easily access features for identity and data theft protection. It also comes with two USB ports, a DisplayPort, a headphone jack and an SD card reader.

Its enterprise-ready design, however, doesn't compromise portability; the XI Carbon weighs only 3 pounds and measures just 0.71 inches at its thickest point. Users do have to pay a pretty penny for all these perks, though; Lenovo sells the XI Carbon Ultrabook for $1,399.
