The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon line of laptops are slim and light, measuring about 0.7 inches thick and weighing 2.9 pounds.
Prices normally start at well over $1,000 but right now Lenovo is offering an entry-level model with a Core i5 chip, a 14 inch full HD display, and 128GB of storage for just $725. It’s also configurable, so if you want to spend more you can get a higher-res display, more memory, storage, or a faster processor.

Also, why so many laptops with memory soldered to the MB? Not being able to upgrade RAM on a business machine is a real waste- especially when they charge a $100 to go from 4GB to 8GB.
Love my X1. I know there are complaints about the adaptive function row, but outside of occasionally hitting it by accident, I have no issues with it. I think if you are a heavy F key user you might get a bit annoyed having to flip through the display, but for a regular business user this thing is great.
Looks like this deal is for the new 3rd gen version (Broadwell + separate function row) – not bad.
Yeah, this newer version (2015) went back to a more traditional keyboard layout. They got rid of the funky backspace/delete split keys and gave back caps lock key. They also have dedicated click buttons again for the touchpoint. Click “see more” to see both keyboards.
For me, the 2015 model seems like the better choice.
