Lenovo celebrates 20 years of ThinkPad innovation by launching two new ultrabooks aimed corporate executives, small and medium businesses, and road warriors.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the thinnest and lightest 14” ultrabook to date, measuring 18mm thick and weighing 1.36kg – a feat made possible by its carbon fiber build. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has also passed eight US military tests for durability: low pressure, humidity, vibration, high and low temperature, temperature shock, dust, and physical shock.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T430U also passed military testing, is 21mm thick, sports a sturdy aluminum build, and can be configured to have a 1GB video card. Its backcover can be easily removed for parts upgrading. Sadly, it does not have rapid charge technology.
