Lenovo Introduced the ThinkPad X1 Carbon back in May, now the device is in the U.S. and will reportedly be available for purchase within the month of August. The slick piece of hardware is claiming to be the “World’s Lightest 14-inch Professional Ultrabook”.
Breaking away from the traditional Lenovo look, the Carbon X1 is a sight to behold. While it still has the sturdy ThinkPad roll cage that we have come to expect from Lenovo it’s composed of carbon fiber, helping the machine to stay true to its claim as the lightest Ultrabook at 3 pounds.
The X1 Carbon will come with a three year warranty with a starting price of $1,399. While the exact shipping date is still not yet confirmed, this business-class Ultrabook will be available for order soon on the Lenovo website.
