Lenovo is updating its ThinkPad X1 Carbon line of thin, light, and business-class laptops with new models sporting the latest Intel processors, support for up to 16GB of RAM, and an even more compact design.

The 2016 Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon still features a 14 inch display, but the new models with Intel Skylake processors weigh about 2.6 pounds, making them about 5 ounces lighter than the company’s 2015 models.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a carbon fiber reinforced case (that’s where it gets its name), which helps keep things both sturdy and light. The notebook measures about 0.65 inches thick, and Lenovo says it can withstand temperatures as cold as -4 degrees Fahrenheit or as hot as 140 degrees.

It supports an optional WiGig wireless docking station, optional 4G LTE-Advanced networking, and features a ThinkPad keyboard with Lenovo’s TrackPoint system.

Lenovo will offer models with Core i5 and Core i7 Skylake chips, 1080p or 2560 x 1440 pixel displays, and prices starting at $1299 when the laptop goes on sale in February.

One feature Lenovo isn’t offering with this year’s model is a touchscreen… but if you want a touch capable ThinkPad you can opt for the new X1 tablet or X1 Yoga.
