Lenovo Unveils Touch-Optimized ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Industry’s leading business UltrabookTM now captures the Windows 8 experience

SINGAPORE – 3 May, 2013: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced the availability of the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch, bringing the Windows 8 experience to one of the best business Ultrabooks around. The X1 Carbon Touch retains its lightweight carbon fiber chassis and hallmark durability, and combines it with the simplicity of touch control to give mobile professionals new ways of interacting with digital content while on-the-go.

A true-blue road warrior’s machine

Despite weighing in at a svelte 1.54 kg and measuring just 20.8mm thin, the X1 Carbon Touch’s carbon fiber chassis gives strength and durability beyond traditional notebook materials – allowing it to sustain any bumps or rough handling while on the road. Lenovo’s RapidCharge technology allows mobile workers to quickly juice up the X1 Carbon before their next meeting, and optional 3G connectivity means that work can happen anytime, anywhere – no more worrying about having to find a WiFi signal to get online!

Optimized for Productivity

The X1 Carbon Touch supports 10-finger touch that combines well with the large multi-gesture glass touchpad to enrich the Windows 8 experience, and enable new and more productive ways to work. Supporting that is a 3rd Generation Intel® CoreTM processor that provides the necessary processing power. Certified as the first Ultrabook optimized for Microsoft Lync, the HD face-tracking camera and dual array microphones ensure high quality video and voice track capability without the need for USB peripherals.
