I anticipate its existence just before end of the year, as promised; here is the renewal of the most important laptop Lenovo. Most striking is the introduction of a silver tone in a ThinkPad family that always uses matte black to dress their creations.
For those who do not know the ThinkPad X1 Carbon comment that it is the laptop in the wide range of Lenovo trying to find the best balance between performance, autonomy and lightness, without too many concessions as it is not particularly affordable. The mission of the Chinese company is to assemble the best possible tool, associated with Windows 10.
The goal is complicated whether to improve the model last year, which put the very high level, but like all annual evolution that claims are aimed at improving the basic specifications: a processor Intel Core i5 / i7 seventh generation, option 14 inch screen resolution 2K, and a larger battery.
Lenovo able to put a portable 14 inches in size usually has one 13.3 inches. The weight of the equipment is only 1.12 kilos, the lightest in the five generations Carbon.
The size does not affect the autonomy, which was not one of the strongest points of the model 2016; they have actually gotten a larger battery with 52Wh with which they get up to 15.5 hours of life (MobileMark 2014).
