It was not too long ago when Lenovo introduced their ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook, where this particular mobile computing device came with a lovely carbon fiber body which enabled it to carry a 14-inch display without compromising on portability, especially when it tipped the scales at a mere three pounds. Well, it seems that Lenovo is not content with that, having revealed plans to roll out a spanking new model of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon that was created specially to cater for the new Windows 8 operating system from Microsoft.
There is a product listing for the new version which has been dubbed as the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch, where it has already appeared on the Lenovo website. So far, details remain scant and few at this point in time but the page did reveal that the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch will feature a 10 point touch screen in addition to Windows 8 touch gesture support, of course. It also does seem to point (pun not intended) towards the ability of this new notebook’s screen and keyboard to be positioned in a manner where both of them are flat on a surface, similar to its predecessor. No idea on pricing as at press time though.
