For the past three years, Lenovo has gotten us hooked with its ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which is still dubbed as the lightest 14-inch business notebook in the market. Today, the electronics manufacturing giant unveils its newest model at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) is lighter and slimmer than last year's version. It weighs only 2.5 pounds (1.13kg) at 0.6 inch (16mm) thick. In comparison, last year’s model was 1.18kg heavy and 16.5mm thick, making this year's model the lightest and thinnest Carbon ever.
The Lenovo’s latest X1 Carbon model flaunts a 14-inch IPS OLED display in the body of a 13-inch laptop. It is available in classic black and new silver colors, and comes with an improved Microsoft Precision Touchpad with physical buttons as well as a TrackPoint.
