What can we say about the X1 that hasn't been said before? It's the quintessential ultrabook, with each generation pushing boundaries in notebook design and often redefining how thin, light, and sexy a durable work notebook PC can be.
After seven generations, however, it's hard to perfect what some already view as perfection. However, Lenovo's brilliant ThinkPad engineers often have something up their sleeves to make the best-in-class even better.
ThinkPad and carbon fiber go together like macaroni and cheese, and carbon is the material responsible for ThinkPad's incredible durability and light-weight. But with the X1 Yoga bringing metal to the materials mix, it's high time carbon fiber got it's moment to really shine. Now dubbed the X1 Carbon, this newest X1 Ultrabook is available with a visible carbon weave top cover to accentuate what it's made of (and make it look sahweeeet in the process).
Changes are more than skin deep. The 7th generation X1 brings 8th Gen Intel Core Processors to the mix, Dolby Atmos™ Speaker System with four speakers and four far-field mics, Cat16 LTE-A options, enhanced WLAN and WWLAN, as also new display options, like a 400 nit FHD display with ThinkPad Privacy Guard and 4k Dolby Vision display.
Security is also important; both new X1 notebooks offer a 400 nit FHD display option that contains ThinkPad Privacy Guard which protects the end users screen from prying eyes. ThinkPad Privacy Alert is a unique software feature that warns users if anyone is looking at their screen and will automatically turn on Privacy Guard. Plus, ThinkShutter (the shutter that covers the camera when not in use) is now available on both IR and HD webcam models, and the Match-on-Chip fingerprint reader, which also includes Microsoft SecureBio support, offers improved speed and security.
