RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – December 11, 2012: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch, optimized for Windows 8 adding a touch experience to the industry’s leading business class Ultrabook. The X1 Carbon and X1 Carbon Touch are developed from superior grade, lightweight carbon fiber  and deliver legendary durability and the highest levels of performance. The new X1 Carbon Touch paves the way for mobile professionals who demand the best in mobility and entertainment and want to experience the simplicity of touch gesture control.
“Bringing touch gesture control to our best ThinkPad ever is a natural evolution of the portfolio and a big step towards fulfilling our promise to bring computers into a new PC Plus era,” said Peter Hortensius, president, Lenovo Product Group. “We are excited to be able to offer customers the best experience in a thin and light business class Ultrabook.  The X1 Carbon Touch is the Ultrabook to beat.”  
The X1 Carbon Touch – The World’s Lightest 14” Touch Notebook
Weighing in at a svelte 3.4 pounds and just 20.8mm thin, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is constructed with carbon fiber material that provides strength and durability beyond traditional notebook materials. Users can interact naturally with smooth 10-finger touch on the vibrant 14-inch HD+ display and further enrich their Windows 8 experience using the large multi-gesture glass touchpad.
Even with its thin and light design, the X1 Carbon Touch packs a punch. Powered by Intel Core i5 and i7 processors the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch invites users to enjoy multimedia content with Dolby Home Theater v4. Certified as the first Ultrabook optimized for Microsoft Lync, the HD face-tracking camera and dual array microphones ensure high quality video and voice track capability without the need for USB peripherals.
For the true mobile warrior, a new optional slim 65W AC adapter is now offered as the perfect companion for the new X1 Carbon Touch. At just 17mm thin and weighing 53 percent less (235g) than the standard AC adapter, it fits neatly into even a small bag and offers maximum portability for travelers with the world’s lightest 14” Ultrabook.  
For the business user, the X1 Carbon Touch provides peace of mind for any situation with state of the art security and manageability including vPro, Integrated Fingerprint Reader, Trusted Platform Module and BIOS encryption.  Lenovo’s RapidCharge technology provides the industry’s fastest charge times while the eight hours of battery life and optional 3G connectivity ensures maximum productivity virtually anywhere.
