Lenovo is releasing a new update to the existing ThinkPad Carbon X1 updating it with a touch screen display.
Remember the Lenovo Carbon X1, that gorgeous full carbon fibre built Ultrabook perfect for home use yet aimed at business folk primarily? Well it is a perfectly crafted piece of kit offering great specification and build quality, yet with the release of Windows 8, it is outdated sat alongside the wealth of touch screen laptops on the market. Fret no more then, potential purchaser, because Lenovo is going to release a touch enabled Carbon X1 making it possibly the perfect Ultrabook on the market.
Optimized for Windows 8 with thanks to that touch screen, ThinkPad fans for the first time have a laptop built with laptop capabilities and tablet apps. the X1 Carbon Touch will feature a 14-inch “HD+” (most likely 1600×900) display with 10-finger multi-touch support and also full support for Windows 8 touchpad gestures. Elsewhere, it packs up to an Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD Graphics 4000, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, 128GB or 256GB SSD.
The original Carbon X1 was marketed as the worlds thinnest 14-inch laptop, so the touch version should live up to that claim too.
