The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (6th Gen) is a premium-class 14-inch business laptop. This thin and light notebook has a 0.6″ profile and weighs in at only 2.5 pounds. The X1 Carbon 6th Gen features a ruggedized military-spec-tested chassis made of carbon fiber. It has a magnesium alloy roll-cage construction inside, while on the top it has a black soft touch finish (or optionally silver).
There are four display choices on this model. As the basic one, customers can choose a Full HD IPS screen with a 300-nit brightness. You can have touch functionality on top of it as the second choice. Furthermore, the laptop is available with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS 300-nit or an HDR Dolby Vision IPS panel with the same resolution but with extreme brightness of 500 nits.
As same as the other ThinkPads, the X1 Carbon has a keyboard with ergonomically shaped keys. The keyboard is backlit. It’s accompanied by a spacious trackpad and the ThinkPad’s recognizable pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard.
Inside, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Gen packs a serious punch in terms of performance for business and everyday applications.
