Revamped Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon runs touch-based Windows 8

The is one of the more thin and portable Intel-powered ultrabooks, weighing in at about 3 pounds.

Currently, the device is available with Windows 7, but a slick updated version is reportedly due to hit physical and virtual store shelves next month.

To be sure, the latest iteration of Lenovo’s Carbon is said to run and will feature a number of touch-based upgrades.

Although Lenovo has yet to offer a complete spec list, the company has confirmed that the new ThinkPad Xpad X1 Carbon will be equipped with an HD+ touchscreen display that supports 10-finger input, along with an integrated touchpad and TouchPoint button in the center of the keypad.

If you’re ever used a Lenovo ThinkPad notebook or an old-school IBM notebook, you know exactly what that little red TouchPoint button looks like.
As expected, the upgraded notebook will also support Windows 8 touchpad gestures.

Current Carbon specs include a 1600 x 900 pixels display, Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of storage via an SSD.

The current notebook certainly isn’t cheap, and I wouldn’t expect a price reduction when the update lands next month either. According to Liliputing, you can pick up the Windows 7 version of the X1 Carbon starting at $1124 using the BLACKFRIDAY coupon code.
