The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has had a lot of praise and now Lenovo is making it even better with a refresh. You can now get the Ultrabook with a 2,560 x 1,440 display and Haswell processors (up to Core i7) and longer battery life (up to nine hours according to the company). Lenovo has only chosen to add some adaptive keys to the slightly redesigned keyboard. The fingerprint scanner is now flush with the lines of the keyboard and the touchpad is now flat with the rest of the body making it look and feel much more modern. Lenovo has also added NFC support, voice commands, and even some gesture control.

A minor chance that Lenovo points out is a 13 percent thinner fan which is dust resistant which could change usage noise but it's hard to say without extensive testing. Other configuration options are available which include up to 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage and built-in 4G.

This is yet another great looking device from Lenovo. They often thinks outside box, producing laptops that have touchscreens, can fold and twist into different positions and even some that covert to tablets.They have a great track record of building quality products and from my own personal experience with their devices it's always what you expect.

If you're looking for a new laptop you should definitely consider them as offer some great deals and low cost convertible laptops that are suitable for everyone.
