  1. It has dedicated sound buttons and thinkvantage button? Or you just picked up a bad picture? I see different images from this one, one has these buttons others not.

  2. ” The latest iteration upgrades the CPU to Intel’s latest 5th Generation Core processors, with support for up to Core i7. This is the Broadwell-U line of CPUs, which means we can’t disclose specifications just yet, but it should be comparable to the Haswell-U processors – we’d expect a 5-10% performance increase in most workloads.” – Anandtech regarding the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
