Another entry into the ultrabook market is set to be released by Lenovo following the announcement of the latest product of the company, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

The latest Lenovo ultrabook is an updated model of the ThinkPad X1, which was released last year. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is slimmer and lighter compared to the previous model and features the third-generation processor from Intel. The upcoming ultrabook will be made of carbon fiber, which reduces its weight to around three pounds and will be around 18mm thick.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon will feature a fourteen-inch display with a 1600 by 900 resolution, the Precision keyboard of Lenovo, 720p webcam and mobile broadband option.

The upcoming ultrabook offering of Lenovo has the appearance of a premium business laptop.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 was initially unveiled by the company last May and is considered to be the first ultrabook offering that enters the top business laptop line of the company. A number of industry watchers were impressed by the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon when it was made available for some hands-on experience last May.

The four configurations of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon offers a number of processor options for potential buyers. The processor options range from the Core i5-3317U processor of Intel for the most affordable model while the top-of-the-line model features a Core i7-3667U processor of Intel.

The pricing options start at $1,399 for the most affordable model and gradually goes up to $1,849 for the most expensive, top-of-the-line model. The 3G mobile broadband option starts with the second most affordable model which has a price tag of $1,499 while the third model of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is priced at $1,649.

All models of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon features a fourteen-inch anti-glare display screen, USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet through a USB dongle, and a mini-DisplayPort.

The maximum battery life of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon will reportedly last up to around 6.3 hours using its 45Wh battery.
