Lenovo have released news of their latest product, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, that’s set to be the world’s thinnest and lightest 14″ Ultrabook. As the name suggests, it features a carbon fiber roll cage that adds structural strength and durability while minimising weight, making it the computer a mere three pounds – this is an improvement over the previous X1’s weight of 3.73 pounds. This model also has a larger screen that its predecessors (14 inches vs 13.3 inches) which makes the weight reduction particularly impressive. To add, unlike its competitors, the X1 Carbon has an embedded 3G connectivity, and also has a rapid charge allowing the user to charge the battery up to 80-percent strength in just 35 minutes. Stay tuned for news of a release date for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
