Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Notebook 5th Gen: Ultralight, Powerful, and Professional
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebooks have always been known as the elite line of ultrabooks. With the release of the 5th generation earlier this year, the corporate business world has a new option for a powerful notebook that can keep up in the busiest, most unpredictable environments.
Like other ThinkPad X1 Carbon models, the 5th Gen offers an efficient and effective solution for business users, travelling professionals, or anyone else looking for an ultra light, upscale notebook. It’s durable, slick, modern, ultra light and ultra fast while boasting some fantastic specs and incredible battery life.
This notebook has been tested against 12 military-grade requirements and passed more than 200 durability tests. From spills to drops, you can be confident in your notebook’s durability. Not many other commercial notebooks can hold up against these conditions.
Benefits of the Lenovo X1 Carbon
The size and weight of X1 Carbon are two of the best features of this notebook. Even with the 200 durability tests, the X1 Carbon weighs in at less than 2.5 pounds and is only 16 mm thick. But you won’t be making many sacrifices for this small size: one of our favourite features at Outsource IT is the thin bezel. You still get a full 14” Full HD or Quad HD screen and a comfortable keyboard with less wasted space.
This weight and size is perfect if you travel often – fits easily into a bag and it can handle being knocked around a few times while you’re on an airplane or on the road. All this while not sacrificing performance in processor, memory, or storage so you get the best experience in a light weight unit with a carbon-fibre reinforced chassis.
One of the most difficult parts about travelling and doing work on the road is internet connectivity. Particularly since many businesses are shifting to working and storing data on the cloud, it can be difficult to get work done without regular access to WiFi. The X1 Carbon can be ordered with on-board LTE-A (4G) connectivity capabilities, meaning you don’t have to search for WiFi or make stops in coffee shops to get your work done.
Another great feature of the X1 Carbon for business users is the battery life. It can last up to 15 hours on a single charge, and the rapid charging feature means that 1 hour of charge time can equal 12+ hours of productivity. No more desperately searching in an airport for a plug!
Along with the lightweight and fast processing speeds that can handle intensive programs and long hours, there are a variety of features of the X1 Carbon that help improve the user experience over previous generations. It has plenty of ports so you can connect other devices and displays with ease. There are two ultra-fast Thunderbolt 3 / USB Type-C ports and two USB 3.0 ports along with an HDMI port for easy presenting.
The X1 Carbon does not include a touchscreen option, so look at the X1 Yoga if need finger or pen input. The memory is soldered directly on the motherboard, so no upgrading later – order with 8 GB or 16 GB, both generous choices for business users.
