ThinkPad X1 Carbon Could Be Next Ultrabook King

By David Ponce

If you’re going to buy the best Ultrabook, the common wisdom is to get a Macbook Air. That’s what this article is being written on and it’s definitely a solid machine. But there are other companies out there constantly trying to kick it from the top of the hill and it’s getting so that it’s kind of due for a refresh soon anyway. So the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon could very well be the one to take its place. See, we like the aluminum unibody, but carbon fiber? Well then, if you put it that way… Aside from the unique chassis material, the X1 Carbon is a 14 inch laptop weighing-in less than 3 pounds and measuring 0.71 inches think. It has a 1600×900 screen, a spill resistant a backlit keyboard, a 720p front facing webcam, embedded 3G, and RapidCharge (charging the battery to 80% in as short as 30 minutes). What sort of hardware is in it? There isn’t much info on that, other than the fair bet that Intel’s newest generation “Ivy Bridge” processors will be churning out the computations. It’ll be available in summer 2012 for an undisclosed sum.
