The ThinkPad and Miix refreshes were based on customer feedback, insight, and experience.

Amongst their other CES 2017 announcements, Lenovo has updated their ThinkPad X1 notebook, 2-in-1, tablet, and Miix convertible lineups. As with their new Lenovo Legion gaming lineup, the ThinkPad and Miix refreshes were based on customer feedback, insight, and experience.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon

The 2017 ThinkPad X1 Carbon, available in classic ThinkPad Black and a new silver color, is the lightest 14-inch business notebook, weighing just 2.5 pounds and packs a 14-inch IPS display into a new sleek 13-inch form factor. Now offering more than 15 hours of battery life for extended time away, the X1 Carbon has been redesigned to include Thunderbolt 3 ports, super-fast LTE-A Wireless WAN and WIFI CERTIFIED WiGig options that deliver superlative performance and
connectivity. Feel protected from cybercrime threats with enhanced security features. A fingerprint sensor with a dedicated chip that handles biometric processing secures and simplifies the Windows Hello logon experience with a new face recognition Infrared camera.

Features and specifications

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon will have the following features and specifications:

  • Enough battery life to board one of the world’s ultra-long-haul flights and have enough juice on arrival to message home. Users can now enjoy up to 15.5 hours, per MobileMark® 2014.
  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X7 LTE-A Wireless WAN offering up to three times faster LTE speeds1 and WIFI CERTIFIED WiGig™ options remain, but can now co-exist thanks to redesigned antenna placements.
  • Thunderbolt™ 3 ports also make their appearance with up to eight times faster transfer speeds than USB 3.0 and 4k display connectivity. We’ve still managed to squeeze on a couple of type-A USB 3.0 ports and HDMI too!
  • Expanded docking solutions with new Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C docks.
  • ThinkPad has enhanced biometric authentication with the addition of an IR camera with face recognition support for Windows Hello logon.
  • The Match-on-Chip touch fingerprint sensor adds another security layer. Enrolled data is processed in the sensor itself and all fingerprint images are handled inside the fingerprint processing unit preventing malicious logon access.
  • ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also the first business-class notebook to support FIDO-enabled biometric authentication for PayPal. Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) secures users’ FIDO® credentials and the Synaptics Natural IDTM fingerprint sensor features enterprise-level security with TLS 1.2 encryption. This hardware-level protection will enable users to authenticate to online FIDO-enabled services like PayPal® by using a fingerprint instead of a password.
