Following Acer’s footsteps, another laptop manufacturer has revealed its plans to introduce an Intel based notebook, dubbed Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook. Along with this, the company has announced the upcoming availability of the ThinkPad X, L, W and S series notebooks too.
The 3G enabled Ultrabook meant for professionals, dons a 14-inch screen on its sleek chassis. This portable computer is constructed using a premium carbon fiber rollcage that is responsible for the lightweight form factor that tips the scale at less than 3 pounds. Also, it features the Intel vPro technology and Lenovo RapidCharge, which powers the device in close to 30 minutes.
“We crafted the ThinkPad X1 Carbon with premium carbon fiber material in order to make it incredibly thin and light, yet durable. Our new ThinkPad laptop portfolio embodies much of the innovative thinking exemplified in the X1 Carbon, such as a backlit keyboard, super-bright high definition display, Dolby Home Theatre and rich communications features that balance business performance with personal use,” expressed Lu Yan, senior vice president, Think Product Group, Lenovo.
The other Lenovo ThinkPad laptops belonging to the X, T, W and L series include the X230 and X230t Ultraportable, T430, T430s, T530, W530, L430 and L530. These cram in attributes that take care of key business needs in addition to the third generation Intel Core processors for multitasking capabilities. The notebooks will be available in screen sizes ranging from 12 inches to 15 inches.
Moreover, the Windows based devices boast of Lenovo Enhanced Experience 3.0 and RapidBoot technology and are fitted with ThinkPad Precision keyboards with a backlit option. Their 300 NIT HD+ panels should enhance the visual performance, while the Dolby audio should add to the acoustic experience. Furthermore, Lenovo has also updated its ThinkPad series 3 docking stations with USB 3.0 ports to deliver faster performance.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook release date and price are yet to be revealed, but it will be made available in summer. The ThinkPad X230, X230t, T430, T430s and W530 prices start at $1,179, $1,479, $879, $1,399 and $1,529, respectively. The ThinkPad L430 and L530 prices are tagged at $879 each. These laptops will hit store shelves in June.
