    Dazzle yourself & others


    The new design of the X1 Carbon will surely dazzle. The dark black, soft-cover include colour-coded hinges. And the 14” display options are bigger and more stunning than ever. The built-in Full-HD IPS display guarantees a wide viewing angle, and richer color.

    Go from 0 to 80 in 60


    The X1 Carbon delivers** up to 15 hours of battery life. And if you’re running low, the RapidCharge technology provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery** up to 12 hours. What more could a road warrior ask for? And when you’re actually working at your desk, the new docking system fits seamlessly with side mechanical docking that snaps into place. The easy alignment also delivers outstanding stability while docked, and it’s shared across multiple ThinkPad products.

Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. **CruiseTech note: quoted battery life is based on an estimated maximum. Actual battery life may vary significantly based on many factors, including screen brightness, active applications, features, power management settings, battery age and conditioning, and other customer preferences - as such we do not guarantee the system will reach the manufacturer's quote. We've seen anywhere between 3.25hr (e.g. updating Windows) to 10 hours (idling on power saving mode with wifi on) depending on how heavy the workload is.

    Prepare to be thunderstruck


    The X1 Carbon includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power. So you get Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and DisplayPort - all rolled into one.

    Built to go on and on. And on.

    Like all ThinkPads, the X1 Carbon is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. From the arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way. Plus, with four layers of carbon-fiber reinforced chassis and a magnesium alloy roll-cage for added strength, you know that reliability is our middle name.

    Flick your finger for privacy

    Oh snap!


    The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock (sold separately, not included with this listing), a whole new docking system that’s shared across most of the 2018 ThinkPad models. The new USB-C side mechanical dock easily connects with two male Type-C ports that snap into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and sits at a slightly tilted angle for comfort.

    Good thing it's drool-proof


    The fingerprint reader thwarts biometric hacking with anti-spoofing technology—that means the fingerprint image is saved inside the chip, and as such, it’s not sent out for login authentication when you sign in. Your data is protected too, with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM), which encrypts your information. And if that’s not enough to make IT administrators love the new X1 Carbon, then the security capabilities that ThinkPad is enabled with is sure to have them drooling.
