The ThinkPad Goes Ultrabook, ThinkPad X1 Carbon Tested

MojoKid writes "The venerable Lenovo ThinkPad, with its little red TrackPoint nub, has gone the way of the Ultrabook. If there's one small dig ThinkPads have taken with regularity over the years, it's that though there's a ton of quality and substance built into these machines, style was not a hallmark of the brand. The all new ThinkPad X1 Carbon could very well change the utilitarian stereotype of the Lenovo's business-backed line-up, however. It's well-made like a ThinkPad should be but it's thin, sleek and maybe even a little bit sexy. As the name suggests, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is built from carbon fiber material throughout its chassis and internal rollcage. Its 14-inch display drives a native resolution of 1600X900 and its keyboard, arguably one of the nicest features of the ThinkPad line, is backlit and even more refined with contoured key caps. Battery life hits a max of about 6 hours on a full charge and the machine weighs in at a svelt 3lbs. and .31-inches at it thinnest dimension."
