Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Laptop

Lenovo announced today the 13-inch, ThinkPad X1 laptop, the thinnest and highest performance notebook in its class. Designed for mobile professionals who demand the best in performance, mobility and entertainment, the laptop offers a simple, modern style with backlit keyboard, fast charging batteries and a host of performance and multimedia capabilities.

Ultra-Thin Design Meets Elite Performance
As the thinnest ThinkPad, the ThinkPad X1 laptop measures less than 17 mm, approximately the height of a U.S. penny. Packed into the ultra-thin form factor are choices of second generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, which are typically offered on Lenovo's larger 14 and 15-inch laptops. This engineering allows the ThinkPad X1 laptop to double the CPU performance and quadruple the graphics performance of the ThinkPad X301, Lenovo's previous flagship 13-inch laptop.

Starting at only 3.7 pounds, the ThinkPad X1 laptop feels incredibly light and sturdy thanks to its interior roll cage and magnesium chassis. The laptop opens to reveal a 13.3-inch glossy screen that includes Corning Gorilla Glass for extra durability and scratch resistance. The hardened ThinkPad X1 passes eight military specifications so mobile professionals can work anywhere with confidence.

Recharge Fast with RapidCharge
The ThinkPad X1 laptop debuts Lenovo's new RapidCharge battery technology that charges up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes. This technology charges 2.5 times faster than a typical ThinkPad battery, giving users more freedom to work on-the-go faster. RapidCharge combines fast charge cells with a 1,000 cycle battery designed to last three years. Users can also opt to purchase a RapidCharge external slice battery for the ThinkPad X1 laptop to double their battery life to 10 hours.

ThinkPad Keyboard In A New Light
Lenovo has thoughtfully modernized the keyboard's appearance while simultaneously retaining the touch, feel and function of the classic ThinkPad keyboard experience. The simplified design eliminates some legacy keys like SysRq while keeping rich functionality including dedicated multimedia and voice calling controls. For working in low light, users can turn on the keyboard's backlight, available for the first time on an enterprise-class ThinkPad laptop. Additionally, in keeping with ThinkPad tradition, the keyboard features spill resistance.

Rich Sound, Riveting Pictures for Music and Movies
Business PCs typically aren't known for their audio/visual experience, but the ThinkPad X1 laptop changes that with rich and resonant Dolby Home Theater v4 sound and its superbright (350 NIT) high-definition display. Whether listening through headphones, built-in speakers or a connected home theater, users will experience a captivating entertainment experience. Also, with the laptop's HDMI port and Intel Wireless Display technology, the laptop can connect and stream 1080p wirelessly to a TV or projector.

Business-Class Innovations
Lenovo's ThinkPad laptops feature a platform of new innovations that respond to key business needs with video and voice calling, enterprise management features and by creating an easy-to-use computing experience. Using its optional mobile broadband, 720p camera, high definition microphones and advanced calling modes, the ThinkPad X1 laptop delivers clear video calls. It also offers robust layers of security with Intel vPro technology, encrypted hard drives with remote management support and a fingerprint reader with one touch swipe for power on and authentication.

For quick and easy startup and shutdown, the laptop comes with Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 for Windows 7 — an exclusive certification for Lenovo products that allows users to start their laptop on average 20 seconds faster than a typical Windows 7 computer.

Pricing and Availability
The ThinkPad X1 laptop will be available starting May 17th for $1,399.
