<strong>Long battery life: Stay unplugged all day</strong> — up to 8.2 hours — but when you do need to boost your battery, the breakthrough Lenovo RapidCharge technology charges up to 80 per cent in just 35 minutes.

<strong>ThinkPad precision keyboard:</strong> Spill-resistant, six-row, island-style keys enhance accuracy and comfort, plus backlit keyboard makes working in dark environments effortless.

<strong>Integrated fingerprint reader:</strong> Get quick, convenient access and secure login with one swipe.

<strong>Dolby Home Theatre v4:</strong> Immerse yourself in surround sound and striking visuals with Intel HD graphics and HDMI output.

<strong>Power manager software:</strong> Intuitively limits the energy drain of idle processes and provides an extra surge of energy when needed most, stretching your system’s unplugged run-time to the max.

<strong>Military-specification testing:</strong> Validates the ruggedness, durability and quality of ThinkPad products by testing against: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000ft), low temperature and dust.

A carbon fibre roll cage with reinforcement throughout makes the X1 Carbon ultra-durable, yet highly portable.

<strong>Advanced thermal design:</strong> Dual vents and new fan blade design deliver a 28 per cent increase in airflow, plus dust collection is minimised.

This promotes better processing performance and system reliability by minimising system temperatures, as well as promoting a longer life-cycle.
