    Go from 0% to 80% in 60 minutes

    The X1 Extreme delivers up to 14.6 hours of battery life. And if your battery is running low, the built-in rapid-charge technology charges the battery up to 80% in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can recharge your battery. What more could you need for life on the go?

    * Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.

    Stay connected

    Move data between the X1 Extreme and your other devices quickly with Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 technology via the shared USB 3.1 Type-C ports at the speed of thunder up to 40 Gbps, which simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices. These ports don’t just transfer and display – they’re powerful enough to actually run the whole system. For other USB-C devices that aren’t Thunderbolt-3-aware, they can still communicate with the X1 Extreme via the shared USB 3.1 Type-C ports at the speed up to 10 Gbps.

    How many is too many?

    The X1 Extreme supports up to four independent monitors—making working with complex computations, day trading, or analyzing big data a cinch. What's more, the optional IR camera includes Glance technology, which merges face-, eye-, and gaze-tracking. That means the cursor automatically focuses and windows shift with just a move of your eyes! You'll enjoy a more intuitive and productive interaction, especially when displaying on multiple monitors.
