Lenovo has announced the launch of Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook on the 20th anniversary of its ThinkPad product segment. The new Ultrabook will be available at a price tag of Rs. 85,000. With this device having the reputation of being the world’s thinnest Ultrabook in the 14-inch display size segment, this expensive product seems to be worth its money. The company claims the device to have a thickness of just around 8mm and a weight of 1.36 kg.
The lighter weight is made possible as it is manufactured using carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is the raw material used for the manufacture of Formula 1 cars. The final result is a product designed to have characteristics such as enhanced reliability, security and portability.
The 14-inch screen display screen in Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook enables HD+ display. A standard rechargeable battery is used in this Ultrabook providing almost 6.3 hours of total battery life. Users can enjoy listening to tracks in multiple formats and can also enjoy enhanced bass effects with the device using Dolby Surround Sound technology. The company even offers 3G connectivity SIM-slot as an optional feature. Other key hardware features include the presence of 256GB SSD Drive and the latest generation Intel Ivy Bridge Processor.
The company is yet to reveal the detailed specifications regarding its RAM storage capacity and Graphical features such as GPU specification. Sources suggest that the device will be upgraded to the much awaited Windows 8 operating system as soon as the OS makes its debut on October 26th. As of now, users will have to be satisfied with Windows 7 operating system which still delivers a decent performance. Typing and navigation is enhanced in Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook with the implementation of a 6 row backlit keyboard and a glass multi-touch trackpad.
