Lenovo’s ThinkPad notebook lineup has been praised for its thin form factor, high range specification and Adaptive Keyboard. And the Chinese electronics company has now announced new addition to its Windows 8.1-powered ThinkPad X1 Carbon series at the ongoing CES 2015 trade show in Las Vegas.

The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon! It comes in with the latest Intel’s Broadwell, based fifth-generation processor. The company also highlighted the 80 percent faster solid-state drives and a bunch of new productivity software it has added to attract business customers. The notebooks come in two variants: 256GB and 512GB PCIe SSD drives and up to 8GB RAM.

The Adaptive Keyboard usually referred to as the “contextual keyboard” which would adjust the keys in accordance with the software being used, has however been dropped in favor of traditional keyboard setup. The X1 Carbon comes with the standard Fn keys set that we are very well accustomed with.

The new X1 Carbon also has a better display quality from FHD (1920×1080) to 3K (3072×1728)  resolutions. The notebook also packs in Intel’s 3D RealSense camera. The new X1 Carbon will be available for purchase later this month with basic new model starting at $1,249.
