X1 Carbon (Gen 5)Features
Get Used to Checking Your Bag
At just 1.14 kg and 15.95 mm thin, the new X1 Carbon is our smallest and thinnest business Ultrabook™ yet. You might find yourself checking a lot to make sure it's really there.
Sacrifice Nothing For Portability
With an 8% smaller footprint than previous generations, the new X1 Carbon is easier to hold, to carry, and to take your work on the go. But the best part? We’ve packed in even more processing power, more memory, and more storage to drive your business. Plus we managed to keep the 14″ display in a 13″ chassis. Now that’s innovation.
Up & Running Even If You’re Not
Even when WiFi is out of range, the new X1 Carbon has LTE-A (4G) option available —so you’ll always have connectivity and access to all your data and apps in the cloud.
From 0 to 80 in 60
The X1 Carbon delivers up to 15.5 hours of battery life. And if you’re running low, the rapid charging feature provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery up to more than 12 hours.
Prepare to Be Thunderstruck
The X1 Carbon includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power. So you get Thunderbolt, USB-C, and DisplayPort. Plus, you can even output to two 4K displays with the Thunderbolt Dock.
Like Magic, Really
Imagine walking up to your desk with your X1 Carbon and automatically connecting to your monitor and external keyboard and mouse. Or walking into a conference room and, almost instantly, your presentation is up on the display, with the speakers fully connected. With the ThinkPad WiGig Dock (optional), there's no fumbling for cables or wired connectivity.
No Re-Inventing the Wheel
Lenovo has shipped more than a 100-million ThinkPads, all with our award-winning, ergonomic, highly accurate keyboard. And the X1 Carbon delivers that same legendary interaction that IT pros and end-users alike have come to love and expect from ThinkPad—all day, every day.
Go Ahead-Forget Your Password!
With Windows Hello, you'll never have to remember another password. Simply touch the fingerprint scanner, or use the new infrared camera (optional) with advanced facial recognition technology to log in to your laptop.
Classic or Modern-Your Decide
Be it the traditional Black refined look of ThinkPad, or the modern appeal of Silver, the new X1 Carbon is available in two colours to suit your style.
We Mean ALWAYS Covered
X1 Carbon comes with a standard worldwide warranty. That means that you can get help in 160 countries. We work around the world so your business can too.
