Lenovo unveils their latest ThinkPad X1 series of devices
Lenovo’s Thinkpad series of notebooks has always been highly regarded for their professional design, business-oriented internals, and that signature keyboard knob. This CES 2018, the company has released an updated line-up of their X1 series of notebooks and devices.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
First up is the updated version of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon or as Lenovo names it — The ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th gen. The new X1 Carbon now features Dolby Vision HDR, a first for any PC and a 14-inch chassis weighing in at just 2.49lbs (1.12kg) making it the lightest business-oriented laptop on the market. Apart from those the laptop also features Lenovo’s so-called ThinkShutter Camera which is basically a webcam cover that you can easily slide to hide your webcam from prying eyes.
The notebook is powered by a 14-inch IPS display with up to WQHD resolution and Dolby Vision HDR, up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU’s with vPro, Intel UHD 620 graphics, up to 16GB LPDDR3 RAM, up to 1TB PCIe SSD, and a 57Wh battery. (Full specs of the laptop can be found here)
