Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon aims to lead corporate ultrabook charge

Summary:Pricing is yet to be determined, but Lenovo is only the first in the corporate ultrabook parade. HP, Dell and a host of others will push ultrabooks on corporations.

Lenovo has refreshed its ThinkPad laptop line-up for business and appears to be one of the first to start pushing ultrabooks for business.

CNET's Scott Stein has details on the entire lineup, but the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, a 14-inch ultrabook is the front runner.

The X1 Carbon is an update to Lenovo's previous X1. The ThinkPad X1, updated with the latest Intel chips, has carbon fiber, promises fast charges and includes a high-resolution screen.

Stein noted:

The carbon-fiber 2012 ThinkPad X1 is a true 14-inch ultrabook that claims to be the world's lightest at that size (3 pounds). A 1,600x900 resolution screen, carbon fiber roll-cage, 3G broadband, and the return of last year's Rapid Charge battery (which charges the battery up to 80% in 30 minutes) round out the features.

Pricing is yet to be determined, but Lenovo is only the first in. HP, Dell and a host of others will push ultrabooks on corporations.
