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.
