New ThinkPad X1 Carbon Is So Light You Won't Believe It's Real

  • MORE

Just how light can a laptop be and still provide long battery life, great performance and a strong mix of ports? We may find out soon. Lenovo is updating its popular ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultrabook with a 7th Generation Core Series CPU, while shaving a few ounces off of the weight and adding additional battery capacity. Available in February for a starting price of $1,349, the X1 Carbon comes in both silver and traditional Lenovo black versions. 

I had the opportunity to go hands-on with the new X1 Carbon and was impressed with how much lighter it felt in my hand, compared to the 2016 model. Lenovo is also releasing updated versions of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga and ThinkPad X1 Tablet that take advantage of Intel's latest, 7th Gen CPUs. See the key specs and takeaways for each beow.
