CES 2017: Lenovo Launches New ThinkPad X1 Devices, An Alexa-Powered Assistant And More
ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Lenovo's popular business notebook, the X1 Carbon, is entering its fifth generation with a new refresh for 2017. The X1 Carbon is now smaller in overall size (with its 14-inch display fit into a 13-inch form factor) and lighter (at 2.5 pounds, 6 percent below the current X1 Carbon). Lenovo has boosted the laptop's battery life to 15.5 hours from 11 hours previously, and the X1 Carbon will include seventh-generation Intel Core processors (Kaby Lake). The new version will also include two Thunderbolt 3 ports, alongside two USB-A ports and HDMI. And for security, the X1 Carbon adds an IR camera with facial recognition to support Windows Hello log-in. Lastly, along with the classic black color, Lenovo is adding a new silver option for the X1 Carbon with this latest release.
The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon will be available in February with a starting price of $1,349.
