Lenovo is bowling into Las Vegas this year with some revamps to its popular ThinkPad family of products. More specifically, the company has updated both the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (7th generation) and the ThinkPad Yoga (4th generation). Both devices are now thinner and lighter than ever before and come with 8th generation Intel Core processors. Starting off with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, it is now even thinner than the 6th generation model, coming in at 14.95 mm thick; it's also lighter at just 2.46 pounds. Lenovo has spruced things up a bit along the exterior with a new carbon fiber... Read more...
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon line has been widely regarded as the company's flagship business-class laptop over the past few years. The previous model, which we pored over in deep-dive detail here, brought a new, more compact chassis design with it, along with thinner display bezels and a refresh of Intel's Kaby Lake mobile processor platform. There was a notable caveat or two with the previous-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon, and it could have been a showstopper, depending on your perspective and use case. Last year's model was only available with a  non-touch, standard IPS display, which could be... Read more...
In a letter to customers, Lenovo admitted it has a few loose screws. Or more accurately, the company's ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th generation) does. Due to this, Lenovo is voluntarily recalling some of these thin and light laptops, as the loose screws could damage the device's battery causing it to overheat, and potentially catch fire. "Lenovo’s investigation and analysis determined that an unfastened, small screw, left in the unit during manufacture, could damage the surface of the lithium ion polymer battery and cause a short, leading to rapid cell discharge of the battery," Lenovo said. "This... Read more...
Lenovo had a lot of new products on display at CES 2018, and we were on hand to get a hands-on look at what the company has in store for the first half of the year. Of course, the stars of the show were no doubt the newest members of the ThinkPad X1 family. These include the X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga and X1 Tablet. All of the systems have been upgraded with 8th generation Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7) and feature both USB Type-C (3.1) and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga can be had with 14-inch displays with up to 4K resolution, while the X1 Tablet's display measures 13... Read more...

Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad business oriented laptop line is punctuated by a couple of stand-out models, but perhaps none as striking, at least for a ThinkPad, as the ThinkPad X1 series. In its current lineup, Lenovo offers two models specifically that command attention perhaps more than others, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga that we recently revisited--with its 360-degree hinge and sweet OLED display--and the new 5th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon that we'll be looking at here today. Though the 5th gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon may share a similar design signature and materials as the previous generation, Lenovo's... Read more...

More and more, ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo are taking on design cues and features that were brought to market with the advent of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

Lenovo is reTHINKing its product lineup for 2016 and from the looks of things, elite business users are going to be in for a real treat with a whole family of devices ranging from tablets to ultra-portables to thin desktop clients. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has always been one of our favorite ultraportable laptops, and today it just got a little bit more desirable. Lenovo bills the ThinkPad X1 Carbon as the “world’s lightest 14-inch business ultrabook,” and we’re not going to argue with its avowal. The ultrabook is now both thinner and lighter, coming at just 0.65mm thick and... Read more...
The ThinkPad name has a storied history in the notebook sector. Originally developed under the helm of IBM, and passed on to Lenovo roughly a decade ago, ThinkPad notebooks are still considering some of the best in the business. Lenovo’s latest 2015 edition of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is no exception; the 13-inch class notebook is a strong performer and boasts excellent battery life thanks to its new Intel Broadwell processor architecture. With a base price of $1,299, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon carries with it a bit of a premium compared to other machines in its class, but it was still enough to earn... Read more...
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been through a few revisions now and it's easy to see why the product sells so well and why Lenovo continues to invest in the model lineage.  The ThinkPad X1 Carbon combines the sleek profile of a mainstream ultrabook with the durability and utility of Lenovo's classic ThinkPad line of business-class notebooks. With arguably some of the best notebook keyboard and trackpad setups in the market, the ThinkPad line is built for road warriors and demanding professionals first, but the X1 Carbon straddles the line with light-weight composite carbon fiber construction...

The world’s largest PC company is rolling out refreshed laptops, a new 24-inch monitor, and new ThinkPad Stack accessories.

It could be said that Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon series cuts through the stuffy corporate facade, offering something for the conference room or coffee shop with a sleeker physique and sports car-like good looks.  The original ThinkPad X1 Carbon was initially released back in 2012 and at the time, its carbon fiber-infused chassis offered a rare combination of build quality and light-weight durability that Lenovo could still call a "ThinkPad" but with a style and feel all its own. New for 2014, Lenovo has completely revamped the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, from the 4th generation Intel Haswell Core... Read more...
