In the recently held CES 2014 exhibition, Lenovo brought us a new ThinkPad X1 Carbon, and in the shortcomings of the previous product to improve, the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon from the perfect ultra-polar goal is a step further. In terms of appearance, the new breed of ThinkPad X1 carbon is smaller than the older product, and the use of the carbon fiber fuselage also makes the ThinkPad X1 carbon a high-end atmosphere and rugged feeling. Thanks to Intel's fourth-generation Haswell core processor, the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon's fuselage has fallen from 18.8mm to 17.3mm, and its weight has been reduced by 300g, further improving portability. More importantly, Lenovo says that the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a life of about 9 hours, up from 70% in the previous generation, which means that users have little need to recharge their ThinkPad X1 carbon for a whole day of use.

In addition, the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon's screen is 14 inches while the resolution is upgraded to a stunning 2560x1440, both manipulative and precise. In addition, due to the use of IPs material, so the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon screen visual angle is ideal, brightness and color is also satisfactory.

Lenovo also redesigned the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Keyboard, and the Rows button in the previous generation was replaced with a row of touch buttons with five rows of buttons. This line of touch buttons enable users to easily implement Windows 8 shortcut features such as search, screenshots, and web browsing. Although the function of the key is not customizable, the function of these keys is automatically adjusted according to the user's open application.

However, it is somewhat disappointing that Lenovo has placed the backspace button on the left side of the deletion key on the next generation of ThinkPad X1 carbon, which does not conform to the usual design, so the user needs some time to get used to it. In addition, the CAPS lock on the new-generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon keyboard is also removed, and its function is replaced by the home and end key combinations. Considering that the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a super book for business users, the changes to the keyboard are confusing to people. However, as one of the traditional strengths of the ThinkPad, the new generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon Keyboard continues to use a good feel, the key process is appropriate, rapid response, the size of each button is also large enough, very suitable for the regular processing of text Office documents for business users to use.

As a high-end ultra-extreme, the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon hardware configuration is also in line with expectations. The new ThinkPad X1 carbon is equipped with a low voltage version of the Intel fourth generation Haswell Core I5/I7 processor, HD4400 integrated graphics, 4GB memory, and 128GB solid-state drives (up to 512GB). Connectivity, the new ThinkPad X1 carbon is equipped with a full-size HDMI hybrid interface, USB 3.0 interface, Mini DisplayPort interface, power adapter interface and Onelink docking interface. For the sale plan, the new ThinkPad X1 carbon the same price as the previous model, starting at 1299 U.S. dollars (about 7920 yuan), and will be officially listed at the end of January.
