Welcome to our CES 2019 coverage! As usual, one of the biggest consumer technology shows takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada and we’re here covering everything we can! Lenovo is kicking our CES 2019 off with some new ThinkPad and ThinkVision hardware so let’s dive right in and see what’s new!

Lenovo is incredibly proud of its ThinkPad line of laptops and we’ve also been very impressed over the years. This year, the company is refining their already impressive ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen and ThinkPad X1 Yoga 4th Gen. Both of these laptops are already amazing pieces of gear but Lenovo has dove in deeper to make the experience better.

The company is also opening the can on a brand new ThinkVision display. The ThinkVision P44w is a massive 43.4″ widescreen HD display with nearly no bezels. Before we dive into the details, here are some highlights from the announcements made today:

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen

One of the big changes for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen at CES 2019 is the availability of a visible carbon fiber weave top cover. While Lenovo has constructed the device from carbon fiber, it was never visible. Now it is, but will only be available on the premium model with UHD 4K Dolby Vision HDR display as an option. Here are more highlights on the X1 Carbon followed by its specifications:

  • Now just 14.95mm thin and starting at less than 2.5 pounds, it is significantly lighter than the very first X1 and features a larger 14″ display.
  • A new Dolby Atmos Speaker System featuring two top-firing tweeters and two down-firing woofers deliver a more realistic and immersive sound worthy of a premium laptop.
  • Four far-field microphones enhance conferencing collaboration experiences and with the system being digital assistant ready, your voice commands will be easily understood whether you are using Cortana or Alexa.
  • If you need to travel, you can continue to be productive for up to 15-hours and when you need access to large amounts of remote data, LTE-A Wireless WAN will power through the biggest file transfers, and now available with CAT 16 LTE offering gigabit speeds where supported.
  • A selection of display options are available, including the stunning 500 nit option, 10 bit, 4K Dolby Vision HDR panel or a new brighter 400 nit FHD display.
