Amp up your game The new 8th generation Intel Quad Core CPUs boost performance 35% over the previous generation. Memory is even faster too with LPDDR3.
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. With a chassis constructed of four layers of reinforced carbon fiber and a magnesium alloy roll-cage for added strength, you'll trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way.
Prepare to Be Thunderstruck The X1 Carbon includes Intel Thunderbolt 3 for data and charging-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.
Extra Security Not only are you secure with the Fingerprint Sensor and ThinkShutter camera-blocking technology, your data is protected too, with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM), that encrypts your information. And if that's not enough to make IT administrators love the new X1 Carbon, then the ThinkPad's FIDO authentication capability is sure to win them over.
