CES 2014 has finally kicked off and its time to start talking about some announcements, the first of which comes from Lenovo who today unveiled the third-generation of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook. Weighing only 2.8 pounds, Lenovo say it is the lightest 14-inch Ultrabook available to date, and yet they still claim it to be “virtually indestructible.”
Built with carbon fibre, the X1 now includes a new Adaptive Keyboard which will adjust itself based on the software or application that is currently being used, highlighting relevant keys for that particular application.
The Ultrabook will now also allow for voice and gesture control, and Lenovo have added a new ColorBurst Display which they say “provides sharper, brighter” images with better viewing angles. It also has a new 9 hour battery life as well as the option to add a built-in 4G receiver.
Finishing up, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon will also add support for the ThinkPad OneLink Dock and will be available in late January from $1299.
