Lenovo refreshes ThinkPad X1 Carbon with 7th gen Intel processors and 15 hour battery

Carbon fiber is widely regarded as tough and durable. Lenovo knows that. That’s why they released the Thinkpad X1 Carbon. This sleek, light, and durable beast comes in silver or the classic Thinkpad black, and it looks great.

The most important thing that’s been updated is battery life. The X1 Carbon can now last 15.5 hours, which is enough to last a long flight and keep going when you land. To a lot of businesses, that’s extremely important to keep their employees going. Unfortunately, a lot of laptops don’t last long, but  X1 Carbon is looking to change that.

The X1 Carbon houses Thunderbolt 3 ports allowing speeds up to 8 times faster for transferring data. Of course, there are still a couple USB 3.0 ports on the Carbon while also adding docking solutions for USB Type-C connectivity.

Another cool thing is that it is LTE ready, meaning if WiFi is nowhere near, you can still get an LTE signal.

Below are a few of the specifications that make the X1 Carbon as awesome as it is:

  • Intel Core 7th Gen
  • Up to 1TB SSD
  • Up to 16GB RAM
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • 15 hour battery life
  • 14” WQHD (2560×1440) or FHD (1920×1080)
  • 2.49 lbs

Overall, the X1 Carbon is going to be a beast of a laptop for any business driven individual who needs to keep going for a good while. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon will be available from February 2017, starting at $1,349.
