Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon to sell for $1,399
Announced back in May, Lenovo’s newest ultrabook (the ThinkPad X1 Carbon) is set to be released later this August for a suggested retail price of $1,399.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon was designed using carbon-fibre chassis providing for a tough yet lightweight body.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon specs:
14-inch LED 720p display @ 1600Ã—900 pixels
Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz dual-core
Intel HD 4000 graphics
4GB DDR3 RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Built-in 3G modem (optional)
1 x USB 2.0 port
1 x USB 3.0 port
SD card reader
Dolby Home Theater
This is just the configuration and additional upgrades like Intel Core i7, more RAM and SSD storage will push the SRP to about $1,849.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon incorporates a Rapid Charge technology that allows the ultrabook to be charged up to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes. The 14-inch ultrabook measures around 18mm on the side and weighs about 3lbs (which is very light for its size).
We expecting the X1 Carbon to be eventually launched here in the Philippines by end of the month or probably in September. We hope the local SRP to be almost the same or near the quoted price in their website (or maybe add that 12% VAT).
