Lenovo News & Update: Lenovo 2017 ThinkPad X1 Carbon; Release Date, Features, Specs Revealed
Credible documentation for a "Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017)" has been exposed online through "China's Benchlife blog." The article includes two images that seemingly detail the new laptop's specs, and suggests that we'll see the device launch in Las Vegas in January.
"Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon" will retain its sleek and professional design, but will be 6% lighter and 8% smaller, weighing in at 1.14kgs with a depth of 15.95mm. The display is tipped to measure 14-inches which is with very slim bezels; and will be available in either a Full HD Touch option, or with a more pixel-dense WQHD alternative. Other optional add-ons are reported to include an IR camera, 4G/LTE-connectivity, and a silver color variant. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) will feature 1TB of PCIe storage, two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and a new 7th-gen Intel Core i processor. And battery life is tipped to be as long as 15.5 hours.
The capacitive keyboard features artificial intelligence software that learns the user's typing habits with built-in prediction. Meanwhile, the real-pen accessory lets you draw on the halo keyboard. The stylus holds real ink tips and does not require any charging.
The "Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon" is a high-end laptop that was first released by Lenovo back in 2012 and has been updated yearly since 2014. It's generally seen as the flagship Lenovo ThinkPad, owing to its high-grade hardware and slick design. The most recent "ThinkPad X1 Carbon" was announced at CES 2016, so it's no surprise that a new version is being pegged for CES 2017 will be released next month's annual Vegas-based technology convention.
The current "Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon" may not be the thinnest or lightest "Windows 10 Ultrabook" on the market, but it makes up for it by being more durable and offering better resistance to dust, vibration, and heat compared to most other Ultrabooks.
