The new X1 Carbon from Lenovo
I'm Dan Ackerman and we recently got to take a look at the new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Ultra Book.
Note that X1 name sounds familiar that's because Lenovo has an X1 last year meant to be a Macbook Air competitor.
It was a little bit too thick for that.
This new version is much slimmer.
Lenovo said it's the world's lightest 14 inch Ultra Book and 3 pound and the new design while a lot nicer doesn't really break any new ground.
It does have the back lit keyboard which we appreciate.
It also got a built in 3G modem something a lot of Ultra Books lack.
It also got the very latest 3rd generation Intel Core I Series CPU's, otherwise known as Ivy Bridge and a high screen resolution than usual 1600x900 but that means this is gonna be a premium price Ultra Book.
We expect it some time this summer for more than a thousand dollars.
That's the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon.
