Lenovo X1 Carbon Overview

The 14" ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook from Lenovo is a lightweight laptop designed for on-the-go professionals who need a secure and portable system to keep up with them. To ensure your data is protected, the X1 Carbon is equipped with a fingerprint reader, power-on password protection, TPM (Trusted Platform Module), and a security keyhole slot. Performance-wise, it's powered by a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-7500U dual-core processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and integrated Intel HD graphics. Its 14" display has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and is built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) display, delivering crisp and clear content with vivid colors and wide viewing angles.

A 256GB Opal 2 SSD is installed to store your files and multimedia content with an additional layer of encryption. Should you need more space, you can attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports as well as its microSD card reader. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi and pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology. Other integrated features include two Thunderbolt 3 ports, an HDMI port, speakers, a webcam with microphones, and a mic/headphone combo jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit).

Thin, Light, and Durable

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is constructed out of carbon fiber and magnesium alloy, making it thin, lightweight, and extremely durable. Weighing roughly 2.5 pounds and at 0.63" thin, it has passed nearly a dozen military-grade specification tests including dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, humidity, and more so you can rely on the ThinkPad despite what life throws your way.

Stay Unplugged

With the X1 Carbon, you can stay connected, or take it with you on the go, as the battery can last up to 15.5 hours on a single charge. Also, thanks to rapid charging technology, it can recharge up to 80% capacity in just one hour. Actual battery life will depend on use.

Extra Security

Because your data is critical, Lenovo has enhanced security to keep you safer than ever. The X1 Carbon includes a fingerprint reader, power-on password protection, TPM (Trusted Platform Module), and a security keyhole slot.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

is the ssd upgradeable to 1 TB ? Can I add another 512 GB ? Does it have an empty slot to take 512 GB ?
Asked by: Srikanth
I missed the second part of your question in my first answer. This laptop has only one SSD slot. If you want a laptop with two, the LG Gram might be a good option for you. It doesn't have a Lenovo keyboard (This laptop's keyboard is EXCELLENT), but it does have a better battery life. Also the Gram doesn't have a replaceable wifi card. I would suggest buying the configuration with the smallest SSD but all of the other specs you desire, then cloning and replacing the SSD. The storage is way overpriced in these configurations (or it was when I purchased mine).
