Is Lenovo working on a 0.4 inch thick ThinkPad ultrabook?

Lenovo may be working on a new ultrabook that’s just less than 10mm, or about 0.4 inches thick. That would make it one of the thinnest laptops on the market, and it’s also expected to be very light, at about 2.2 pounds.

Japanese site Yesky has pictures of the ridiculously thin laptop, and if Yesky’s details are accurate, the size and weight aren’t the only special things about this ultrabook.

The notebook reportedly has a 13.3 inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel IPS display with support for 10-point multitouch, and a sturdy carbon fiber case with roll cage technology to protect the computer’s innards. It’s expected to have an Intel Haswell processor.

At this point, the computer is described as a concept, so it’s not clear if this particular model will ever make it to market. If it does, don’t expect it to be cheap — Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops are known for their sturdy build quality and business-friendly features… not for their low prices.

    This absolutely will be X1 Carbon successor…

    Since I just bought the Sony Vaio Pro 13, it’s a sure thing this will be out soon.

    At 10mm this will have a battery life of 3 hours… unless Lenovo made some breakthrough in battery technology.
