A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Carbon-Tough Yet Ultralight.

Featuring a carbon-fiber reinforced chassis, the new X1 Carbon is just as durable as its predecessor, and it features a smaller footprint making it our lightest, thinnest X1 Carbon ever. Yet it's packed with more power than ever: Windows 10 Pro, 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors, lightning-fast Thunderbolt 3, and a 14" Quad- HD display. All that, with our legendary ThinkPad heritage—and support.

Get Used to Checking Your Bag

At just 1.14 kg / 2.51 lbs and 16 mm / 0.62 inches 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—now Quad-HD—in a 13″ chassis. Now that’s innovation.

We’ve Got Your Back

With four layers of carbon-fiber reinforced chassis and a magnesium alloy roll-cage for added strength, we’ve engineered the new X1 Carbon to handle whatever comes your way. From spilled drinks, to drops and knocks, this laptop is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and passes more than 200 durability tests. Whether it’s a day at the office, or a day on the move, X1 Carbon has you covered.

Up & Running Even If You’re Not

Even when WiFi is out of range, the new X1 Carbon has Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X7 LTE-A 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, 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 with advanced facial recognition technology to log in to your laptop.

Less Really Is More

X1 Carbon is available with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Signature Edition. No more trialware or unwanted apps. No more distractions—and easy provisioning for IT pros.

Classic or Modern—You Decide

Be it the traditional Black refined look of ThinkPad, or the modern appeal of Silver, the new X1 Carbon is available in two colors 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.

RoHS compliance
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electrical and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant product is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). PBB and PBDE are flame retardants used in several plastics. For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. In the EU, some military and medical equipment are exempt from RoHS compliance.
