Stunning Display

The brilliant ThinkPad ColorBurst Display (WQHD, 2560 x 1440) and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer. Plus, 300 nit with IPS for nearly 180-degrees of wide-screen viewing. And it’s anti-smudge.

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. Plus, it’s backlit for working in low-light conditions.

Give a multimedia presentation on the X1 Carbon Touch without even touching the keyboard! Voice and 10 different hand gestures change the way you interact with your laptop.

Practically Indestructible: Tested to Military Specifications

Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber, X1 Carbon Touch is the 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.

Business-Class Security

With fingerprint reader, the X1 Carbon Touch 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 new X1 Carbon Touch stays cooler than ever. In fact, we re-engineered our patented fan blades—so X1 Carbon Touch provides the same cool and quiet performance you expect from a ThinkPad.

    Long time Lenovo fan disapointed The next gen X1 Carbon is sleek and fast system with an amazing display – it’s two steps forward and one step back for the platform. The first problem is they messed with the keyboard – and the touch point.While the liquid crystal display for the function keys seems like a great idea, in practice it’s awful for touch typing, The switch key is right next to the escape key, and because the switch key for the LCD function key is a touch key, brushing that key while you are access the ESC key mean that LCD function keys will have change their function. Meaning the next time you reach for F2 to change a file name, or F4 to repeat a change, you will change the volume or some other unintended result. Now you have stop, look at the function pad, see that what mode it’s in and change mode back to function key mode and proceed, every time you access the function key row. In the OLD world, with the Fn key, you could press two key at the same time (one effective key stroke) to change…

    Don’t waste your money on the 2014 X1 Carbon I’ve been a Thinkpad user for almost 20 years and one of the main reasons for sticking with them is the trackpoint and the placement of the mouse buttons. It makes the laptop very useable while traveling or when getting stuck in a tight space on a plane. However, when they integrated the buttons into the touch pad, it become uncomfortable since you have to apply extra force to click a button.I never like touchpads so I disabled it as soon as I got the laptop. As a side note, if you only disable it in Windows, it only applies to your login, meaning that it becomes enabled when you’re at the login screen. So you need to disable touchpad in the BIOS instead.Back to mouse buttons. Now the margin of error increases since 3/4 of the touchpad represents the left button. If you rest your palm while typing, you’re going to have a high chance of touching it by accident. It’s just not a pleasant experience.Now let’s talk about the keyboard, it’s still very…

    Think before you buy. But a GREAT PRODUCT Amazon as usual has been great with me for all my orders. this one too without any exception was delivered with their quick 2 day shipping, free of charge ( i had to follow up once when the order status was not updated & hence got the 2 day delivery)Now coming to the product itself.I have been using Thinkpad for 8yrs now & have been quite content with the robustness of the product as i travel a lot & at the same time the dependability, speed & system quality. Hence X1 was the only option for me.I would have loved to have a 512GB SSD HDD, unluckily it comes only with 256 GB & hence have to rationally qualify a heavy application to install on the system. Also the HDD CANNOT be expanded to a 512GB (i have got it checked with the Lenovo Service Center). When i received mine with Win 8, i was left with 218 GB.The machine came with a slightly damaged (more like a dent) near the touchpad, but since i was leaving the country could not afford to…
