It weighs at 2.5 pounds (1.14kg). The six-row ThinkPad keyboard with an improved Microsoft Precision Touchpad (with physical buttons!) and iconic TrackPoint complete the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

Lenovo has taken serious steps on security through:

  1. ThinkPad has enhanced biometric authentication with the addition of an IR camera with face recognition support for Windows Hello logon.
  2. The Match-on-Chip touch fingerprint sensor adds another security layer. Enrolled data is processed in the sensor itself and all fingerprint images are handled inside the fingerprint processing unit preventing malicious login access.
  3. ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also the first business-class notebook to support FIDO-enabled biometric authentication for PayPal. Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) secures users’ FIDO® credentials and the Synaptics Natural IDTM fingerprint sensor features enterprise-level security with TLS 1.2 encryption. This hardware-level protection will enable users to authenticate to online FIDO-enabled services like PayPal® by using a fingerprint instead of a password.
