Lenovo is celebrating today as the company has sold over 100 million ThinkPads, which is indeed an impressive achievement. And to make sure that trend continues the laptop maker has announced their brand device lineup for 2015.
Topping the chart is this year’s signature ThinkPad X1 Carbon, a business-class Ultrabook designed for style and portability. The 2015 X1 Carbon features a few redesigned elements compared to last year’s model, such as the reappearance of the function keys and of the clicking buttons on top of the touchpad.
The new device also features some updated internals, and includes the fifth-generation Intel Broadwell processors. Users can also customize their device and opt for either 4 or 8 GB RAM, the addition of LTE connectivity and even choose between regular SATA or PCIe SSDs. The device also boast all day battery life in a body under 3 pounds – or less than 1 Kg for you non-barbarians.
The X1 Carbon Thinkpad will start shipping later on this month with a base price of $1,249.
Moving on to the rest of the line-up, Lenovo has also refreshed its other offerings. The 12.5-inch X250 comes as a replacement to last year’s X240; the T450s does the same to the T440s. The updated version mainly feature the new generation of cores from Intel and slightly lighter body’s for a bit of extra portability. Of course users will also be able to further customize their machines by opting for regular HDDs or SSDs, higher screen resolutions and backlit keyboards.
Overall Lenovo’s new line-up is looking pretty good right now. The device maker is keeping a close eye on what its customers expect and need, and that’s been the key to the company’s recent success, even in a declining market.
