After his Yoga 13, specially created for Windows 8, Lenovo is updating its range of laptops for this new OS. Here is his professional Ultrabook, the X1 Carbon Touch, which undergoes a retouch. By the way, he wins a touch screen.

Released in the summer of 2012, this carbon fiber laptop (1.54 kg) belongs to the Thinkpad range of the Chinese manufacturer. It accommodates on its 14-inch chassis an IPS panel displaying a definition of 1600 x 900 pixels. The touch version is new. However, you have to add $ 100 to the bill to qualify. Such an option limits the compactness of the assembly which takes 2.8 mm in thickness to reach 20.8 mm. Lenovo play with fire. Indeed, remember that to benefit from the name Ultrabook, a 14-inch computer must not exceed 21 mm thick.

The rest of the configuration of this X1 Carbon Touch remains unchanged with a Core i5 or i7 processor of your choice and 128 or 256 GB of SSD. As for pricing, from $ 1,399, the base bill goes up to $ 1,499 for the Touch version.
