Lenovo’s New Bad Boy – The X1 Carbon Touch Screen

Lenovo has always had some of the toughest and well built laptops and desktops on the market, but now they have taken things to the next level. Breaking the mold from the Lenovo look and design with a new smoking fast computer that looks and feels like no other Lenovo.

The new Lenovo Carbon carries the Intel Core i7 processor running at 2 Ghz. Upgradable to 8 MB of RAM and a 240 GB solid state drive. It also comes with all the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi bells and whistles. This is a mean machine.

The feel of this laptop is a dream. A true joy to use. If you’re a Lenovo fan, you’ll love this laptop. If you’re looking for power and portability, you have found your new computer.

The keyboard might look a little different, but the feel is very close to Lenovo’s keyboards of the past. That’s a good thing as Lenovo laptops have been touted to have some of the most usable and preferred keyboard.

The X1 Carbon is super thin. Less than 3/4 of an inch thick. It’s easily light enough to hold in one hand and faster than most other laptops on the market. This Ultrabook is also dockable and usable as a full purpose desktop system.

It also has the USB port that is active even when the computer is turned off. Great for plugging in a tablet or mobile phone for charging while the computer is off.

While the Carbon isn’t a tablet and doesn’t try to be a tablet, it offers full multi-touch screen with Windows 8 (I recommend an instant upgrade to 8.1). Touch is and will continue to be a secondary point of interaction with computers, at least for a while. You won’t use the touch screen for every aspect of regular use, but it makes it easy to zoom, scroll, and many other things that we take for granted while using a point and click input.
