ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2nd Gen)
14" thinkpad X1 Carbon starts at just 1.28 kg, yet this thin laptop is durable with carbon-fibre construction and packed with premium features like an Adaptive Keyboard that changes automatically with apps, RapidCharge battery technology, a patented cooling system and a stunning thinkpad ColorBurst Display.
10-point multitouch screen option available
An optional 10-point multitouch screen improves accuracy, making touch-browsing and selecting more responsive and precise.
Uncommonly intuitive adaptive keyboard
The unique Adaptive Keyboard automatically changes the row of function keys depending on what application you're in. Less clutter, more function and a streamlined keyboard that anticipates your needs.
thinkpad ColorBurst Display (WQHD, 2560 x 1440) and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter and colors are truer. Also available with HD+ (1600 x 900) display.
Practically indestructible: Tested to military specifications
Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fibre, X1 Carbon Gen 2 Ultrabook laptop is the thinnest and toughest thinkpad ever made. In fact, we perform eight separate military specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water and humidity—so you can laugh in the face of spills, drops, heat exposure or anything else life throws your way.
Standard with FingerPrint Reader, X1 Carbon Gen 2 Windows 8 Ultrabook lets you use biometrics for login, so the swipe of your finger becomes your password. Intel® security features and vPro options step up protection and enhance manageability when deploying upgrades. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip further encrypts your critical information
Patently cool: Revolutionary new thermal technology
Even with its ultrathin design, the X1 Carbon Gen 2 Windows 8 Ultrabook stays cooler than ever. In fact, we re-engineered our patented fan blades—so X1 Carbon provides the same cool and quiet performance you expect from a thinkpad.
Starting at just 1.28 kg, the X1 Carbon Gen 2 is the lightest 14" Ultrabook™ on the planet. And at just 17.72 mm thin, it's the thinnest thinkpad laptop ever.
Longer battery life
The X1 Carbon Gen 2 delivers over 9 hours of battery life* on a single charge. And if you do run low, don't fret: with RapidCharge you get 80% battery restored in just under an hour. * Battery life is based on the MobileMark® 2012 methodology and is an estimated maximum. Actual battery life may vary based on many factors, including screen brightness, active applications, features, power management settings, battery age and conditioning, and other customer preferences.
