Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook

Lenovo gave its popular ThinkPad laptop a make-over this year, in the form of its new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook. It's equipped with the same robust and business-centric functionality that's become synonymous with the ThinkPad brand, but in a much thinner and lighter frame, making it perfect for any techies out there in need of a new work notebook.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook is a 14-inch notebook running Intel's Ivy Bridge processors and Microsoft's new Windows 8 OS. According to Lenovo, the X1 Carbon is just 0.74-inches thick and weighs just less than three pounds. It also has Lenovo's signature island-style keyboard, complete with its little red tracking ball.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon starts at $1,250 on Lenovo's website.
