The Lenovo X1 Carbon is already available to order with Windows 8 but if you really want to outfit your Ultrabook with every option under the sun you can wait for the touchscreen that is said to be coming. We can’t find any evidence of this yet but a number of sites are reporting it…so it must be true ;-)
Thanks to Lenovo I’ve got the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon here. It’s a high-end productivity and security-focused Ultrabook and the first Ultrabook I’ve tested with 3G capability. A 256GB SSD and a VPro-capable Core i5-3427U 1.8Ghz CPU along with 8GB of RAM make for an impressive set of specs. The setup being tested here comes with Win 7 Pro a fingerprint reader and has a list price of €2276 although it’s available for around 1800-1900 Euros on the ‘street.’
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook from Lenovo is certainly shaping up to be a great choice for a premium business laptop; it weighs in at 1.36kg with a 14″ screen and ample enterprise options. Now the anticipated Ultrabook is available for purchase. With good marks from early reviews, the lightweight X1 Carbon’s only downside might be the price!
A lot of people are excited about Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This sleek Ultrabook makes extensive use of carbon fiber to cut weight down, bringing the X1’s weight to around 1.35kg. A thin bezel, high resolution matte screen, and integrated 3G make this an Ultrabook you should definitely consider. The Lenovo team has produced and unboxing video which lets you get a look at the final product which should be gracing store shelves soon.
