Lenovo to launch ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook this August

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon showcased in May by Lenovo will soon be launched in August. Lenovo claims the X1 Carbon is the world's lightest 14-inch ultrabook, at 3 pounds, with a carbon-fiber roll cage (similar to the cage like construction on other ThinkPads) that keeps the weight down without sacrificing durability.

Meant to be a tablet alternative the Lenovo X1 Ultrabook is 18 mm thin, weighs just 3 pounds and has a 14inch screen.It also has an 8 hour battery life "The device is set to appeal to those who desire the convenience of a tablet with the extra functionality and power of an Ultrabook" said ThinkPad business VP Dilip Bhatia.

The system will include third-generation Intel Core i-series processors, as any newly announced laptop would, as well as familiar Lenovo features such as Intel vPro support and a rapid-charge battery that charges the battery to 80 percent in 30 minutes.
