If you wish to extend or duplicate your ThinkPad's display, you can do so with its HDMI 1.4 port. Additional connectivity can be accessed through the ThinkPad's dual 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports over USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C, which support DisplayPort and 10 Gb/s data transfer. There's also dual USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one of which supports always on charging.

Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, a Dolby Atmos speaker system, four 360° far-field microphones, a 3.5mm combo audio jack, a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), and Bluetooth 5.0.

We've Got Your Back-and Your Front

Keep your business data and your privacy safe with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 7)'s comprehensive suite of ThinkShield security features. Its discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security. ThinkShutter, a physical camera cover, blocks the lens to ensure that you're only seen when you want to be. The fingerprint reader uses biometrics to log you in with a simple touch. Or, use the IR camera with Windows Hello to log in with your smile.

For Your Eyes Only

As part of ThinkShield security, Lenovo offers a combination of hardware and software that work together to ensure what's on your display is for your eyes only. PrivacyAlert is an integrated software that works with the IR camera to ensure that if others look over your shoulder, then a popup notifies you of the potential threat.

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.

Supported Docking

  • ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock
  • USB 3.0 Dock
  • ThinkPad 90W Basic Dock
  • ThinkPad 90W Pro Dock
  • ThinkPad 90W Ultra Dock
Note:
Docking stations sold separately.

Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit)

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 business 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.

How is the battery life on this machine? It is rated at 11 hrs online. I am getting barely 5 hrs on low power mode.
Asked by: Yan
The Lenovo 14" ThinkPad X1 Carbon Laptop (7th Gen) ships with a 51Whr battery, which includes Rapid Charge technology, with a battery life of up to 18 hours, depending on the work the device is performing. If you are only getting 5 hours of battery life, be sure there are no incompatible programs installed on the computer. Be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults. If the problem persists, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686.
