Consumer Electronics Show 2017 is just a couple days away from now, and Lenovo is taking the wraps off of its latest products. It's not a surprise to see a new batch of computers in CES 2017, but Lenovo came out with a killer product announcement.
Ever since the Lenovo X line is out on the market, it has met a high level of success. Now this year's version of ThinkPad X comes with an even lighter design, which is very impressive for a 14-inch laptop.
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops have reputations as thin, light, and powerful computers. Now the company has launched a new model that's even more compact and more powerful. Lenovo announced that the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon will be 8 percent smaller than its predecessor at 2.5 lbs. compared to 2.6 lbs. last year. It still comes in a drop-resistant case with a spill-resistant keyboard.
Lenovo also reduced the size of the screen bezels, which allowed the company to make a 14-inch display look like a 13-inch model. The laptop is available with 14 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel IPS or 1920 x 1080 pixel display options. The rated battery life is impressive at 15.5 hours of usage. According to Lenovo, a user can achieve 80 percent battery in just an hour as it features rapid charging capabilities.
Beyond that, the laptop is running on 7th generation Intel Core processors, up to a Core vPro i7-7600U processor, up to 16 GB of RAM, 128 GB SSD, and up to 1 TB SSD with PCIe TLC OPAL2. Security is not a problem with Windows Hello fingerprint sensor built into the laptop. The device also has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which is capable of powering two 4K monitors or one 5K display through a single port.
It has two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and Ethernet jacks, and a microSD card slot. It even offers cellular connectivity, as it includes a microSIM card slot that supports 4G LTE connection. Although the device is lighter, it comes with beast specs and is packed with eSports and PC gaming capabilities as well. The laptop will be out in February with a starting price of $1,349.
