The new 14" ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is only 3.1 lbs, yet it's durable with carbon-fiber construction and packed with premium features like an Adaptive Keyboard that changes automatically with apps, RapidCharge battery technology, a patented cooling system, and last but not least, a stunning, ThinkPad ColorBurst WQHD display.

At A Glance:

  • 10-point multi-touch screen

10-Point Multi-touch Screen

10-point multi-touch screen improves accuracy, making touch-browsing and selecting more responsive and precise.

Uncompromisingly Thin

At just .71” thin, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is one of the thinnest ThinkPads ever. And at just 3.1 lbs, it’s one of the lightest 14" Ultrabooks on the planet.

Stunning Display

The brilliant ThinkPad ColorBurst Display (WQHD, 2560 x 1440) and antiglare screen mean text is crisper, images are brighter, and colors are truer. Plus, 300 nit with IPS for nearly 180-degrees of wide-screen viewing. And it's anti-smudge.

Uncommonly Intuitive Adaptive Keyboard

The unique Adaptive Keyboard automatically changes the row of function keys depending on what application you're in. Less clutter, more function, and a streamlined keyboard that anticipates your needs. Plus, it’s backlit for working in low-light conditions.

Liberating Controls: Voice & Hand Gestures

Give a multimedia presentation on the X1 Carbon Touch without even touching the keyboard! Voice and 10 different hand gestures change the way you interact with your laptop.

Practically Indestructible: Tested to Military Specifications

Constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber, X1 Carbon Touch is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform eight separate military specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water, and humidity—so you can laugh in the face of spills, drops, heat exposure, or anything else life throws your way.

Business-Class Security

With fingerprint reader, the X1 Carbon Touch lets you use biometrics for login, so the swipe of your finger becomes your password. Intel security features and vPro options step up protection and enhance manageability when deploying upgrades. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip further encrypts your critical information.

Patently Cool: Revolutionary New Thermal Technology

Even with its ultrathin design, the new X1 Carbon Touch stays cooler than ever. In fact, we re-engineered our patented fan blades—so X1 Carbon Touch provides the same cool and quiet performance you expect from a ThinkPad.

Dolby Home Theater v4

Immerse yourself in surround sound and striking visuals with Intel HD graphics.

Product Description

The lightest 14" Ultrabook in the world also gives you powerful performance and a fully-customizable interactive experience, including touch, voice and gesture control. The unique Adaptive Keyboard makes you more productive, and you'll love the stunning QHD display, long battery life, Intel SSD and much more. It's the ultimate Ultrabook experience.

They took away the tactile REAL left and right mouse keys and replaced them with a touch sensitive pad.

The next gen X1 Carbon is sleek and fast system with an amazing display - it's two steps forward and one step back for the platform. The first problem is they messed with the keyboard - and the touch point.

While the liquid crystal display for the function keys seems like a great idea, in practice it's awful for touch typing, The switch key is right next to the escape key, and because the switch key for the LCD function key is a touch key, brushing that key while you are access the ESC key mean that LCD function keys will have change their function. Meaning the next time you reach for F2 to change a file name, or F4 to repeat a change, you will change the volume or some other unintended result. Now you have stop, look at the function pad, see that what mode it's in and change mode back to function key mode and proceed, every time you access the function key row. In the OLD world, with the Fn key, you could press two key at the same time (one effective key stroke) to change the screen brightness, turn on the keyboard light etc. Now it take some random interval between one, if you are in the right function mode, to three to scroll through the function key modes to get to the right key pad. I used to be a brain surgeon with a laser scalpel with the X series now Lenovo has just handed me an blunt axe.

The LCD function key pad is just annoying however and I could probably learn to slow down and look at the LCD pad to see what mode it was in and toggle through the modes to get the one that I wanted. Even though the Fx key are used 95% of the time. The other fluffily keys not so much. However they did the forgivable, they messed with my beloved Touch Point. They took away the tactile REAL left and right mouse keys and replaced them with a touch sensitive pad.

I am a power windows user and have been looking for a light weight Ultrabook comparable to the MacBook Pro that I could use as a near desktop replacement. Given how rave the reviews are for the MacBook Pro, it has been harder and harder to justify not switching to the MBP, but who has time to learn all the nuances of the Mac and I use a lot of Excel and QuickBooks, which don't play nice with Mac. Thus, I was very excited to learn about this computer. Its actually lighter than the MacBook Pro and comparable in most respects except the screen is a little lower Res. I ordered one of the first Models with the 500 GB Solid State Drive in late Feb. I got it March 14th and it completely died on May 8th - 55 days start to finish for a $2,400 computer (with all the bells and whistles). Sorry Lenovo, but I expect better than this.

Apparently, it failed to turn itself off after I turned it off and left my office one night and it got too hot. This is interesting, because I have left it on all night before with no problems. In fact, I have been impressed at how little heat it generates while operating. When I got there in the morning, it was non-responsive . I was able to finally turn it off by unplugging it and holding the off button for a long time. After letting it cool down, I turned it on again, but the whole thing shorted out and it is now completely dead - totally non-responsive, except the keyboard backlights are flashing at me every 3 seconds. Definitely a short of some kind.

I always buy Lenovo's premium on-site warranty that guarantees on site service within 24 hours, However, much to my Chagrin, Lenovo was unable to get someone here. Thus, I would give this Computer and Lenovo's Warranty Service Negative five stars if I could.

The machine is beautifully made, but:

(a) I don't know why windows still can't deal properly with font size on QHD+ displays -- it's quite annoying to have dialog boxes the size of postage stamps.

(b) the touchpad is ABYSMAL. about 3/4 of the time I press the right mouse button when I want to press the left AND

(b1) a lot of the time the "maximize window" action is triggered.

Should I just change some setting? In the meantime, the machine is quite nice with an external mouse, but this seems wrong.

too many bugs. we have a small business and have had good success with the yoga 2's but this one crashes and has problems with wireless connectivity and vpn. Ships with a bad intel wireless driver (intel's fault) but still having trouble, which is unacceptable at this price point.

Verified Purchase
Within 3 days out of the box my new X1 crashed. I submitted it, as directed by Lenovo support, to Lenovo's authorized service center for resolution. They informed me that a memory fault was the cause. Over the past 3 weeks, I was informed that the necessary part was on back order and most recently, the service center is now awaiting approval for a replacement. I have been a long-time Lenovo fan and was initially pleased with the X1's features and performance, unfortunately, the system's failure and now the dismal service rendered by the Lenovo authorized service center has soured me toward Lenovo.

I've been a Thinkpad user for almost 20 years and one of the main reasons for sticking with them is the trackpoint and the placement of the mouse buttons. It makes the laptop very useable while traveling or when getting stuck in a tight space on a plane. However, when they integrated the buttons into the touch pad, it become uncomfortable since you have to apply extra force to click a button.

I never like touchpads so I disabled it as soon as I got the laptop. As a side note, if you only disable it in Windows, it only applies to your login, meaning that it becomes enabled when you're at the login screen. So you need to disable touchpad in the BIOS instead.

Back to mouse buttons. Now the margin of error increases since 3/4 of the touchpad represents the left button. If you rest your palm while typing, you're going to have a high chance of touching it by accident. It's just not a pleasant experience.

Now let's talk about the keyboard, it's still very comfortable to type on. But I don't know who made the decision to change the layout - The caplock key splits into Home and End keys. And the Backspace key splits into a Backspace key and a Delete key. The function keys now become a row of touch-sensitive dynamic keys. This makes the life harder for those of us who rely heavily on the keyboard. e.g. If you want to do Alt-F4 to close a window, you need to make sure that the soft keys are showing the functions keys or you won't have a F4 button to hit. So what about the volume and brightness? Well, it's not there if you're using function keys. It's in another set of soft keys!

I got the touch version simply because that's the only way to get the 2560x1440 screen. It's a laptop no matter how you try to convince others otherwise.
