Lenovo announces ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch with Windows 8

Lenovo has announced a touchscreen version of their ThinkPad X1 Carbon, called the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch. We reported in the past about it when it had briefly been spotted on Lenovo’s website but it wasn’t officially announced back then.

The 14-inch Ultrabook has been optimized for use with Windows 8 and supports all the basic gestures. The X1 Carbon Touch has a 14.4-inch, ‘HD+’ display, weighs 3.4 pounds and is 20.8mm thick. In fact, Lenovo calls it the world’s thinnest 14-inch touchscreen Ultrabook.

On the hardware side, the machine comes with the option of Intel’s Core i5 or i7 processors, although no other specifics have been mentioned. It also has Dolby Home Theater v4, MS Lync, HD face tracking camera and dual-array microphones. As with the X1 Carbon, the Carbon Touch is also made from carbon fiber.

The Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch prices start at $1,399 upwards and is on sale right now.
