Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon made to ‘boost data security’

Chinese tech company Lenovo says its  latest entrant laptop, ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop now feature improved security feature to keep users’ data safe and secure all day.

The X1 Carbon comes with a touch sensor fingerprint reader which the company says is more reliable and accurate and a Trusted Platform Module, which is a specialized chip designed to secure hardware.

Like the X1 Yoga, the new 2016 Lenovo X1 Carbon has a revamped fingerprint ID reader that relies on the touch input rather than swipe.


The new X1 Carbon which is very thin and light weighs 1.18 kg with 16.5mm/ 0.65 inch thin which makes it extremely portable and according to Lenovo, the lightest 14-inch business Ultrabook on the planet.

The X1 Carbon keeps you connected while unplugged more than all day with 11 hours battery durability.


The device comes with 4G LTE which provides a fast, and most advanced mobile broadband technology. Users can also boost productivity level with the optional WiGig Dock which lets you connect wirelessly for dual displays, audio devices, and more but this is only available with 2K display.

After nearly a dozen separate military-grade specification tests were performed-all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water, humidity, solar radiation, and fungus, the new X1 Carbon is said to be the toughest ThinkPad ever made, constructed with satellite-grade carbon fiber and a full-sized backlit keyboard which is spill-resistant.



Users can connect X1 Carbon to the optional ThinkPad WiGig dock- a desktop hub that includes LAN, video outputs, USB ports, and more, which users can take advantage of without running cables across your work space.
