Powers through the day…and night
With 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with up to 6 cores, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 is faster than ever no matter the task. Given that it’s certified by Intel® for mobile performance, it delivers long-lasting power and productivity when you’re on the go. Enjoy up to 19.5 hours* of battery life. When you do need some juice, Rapid Charge boosts battery life up to 80% in just an hour.
* Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.
Take your productivity to new levels
With always-on responsiveness, you can wake the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 from sleep in less than a second and be able to browse the web a second later. With WiFi 6, you get fast and reliable connections, even on networks with lots of devices attached. Or choose the optional WWAN technology with LTE-A card and jump online with a secure connection just like a smartphone.
*WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it’s not upgradeable.
Designed for convenience
Need to make a Skype call? Or answer one? Sub-functions on the F9 through F11 keys let you do it with ease. Even start a new message with the touch of a button. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 delivers convenience at your fingertips.
Immersive sound experience
With the Dolby Atmos® Speaker System, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 includes two upward-firing tweeters and two downward-firing woofers to create an immersive sound experience. What’s more, four 360-degree microphones cancel unwanted noise when you’re on calls, and pick up your voice from across the room—so you can use voice activation to wake your system, play music, and more.
Handles the unexpected extremes
Like all ThinkPad laptops, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. From the Arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way.
Impressive displays for all that you do
Whether you’re watching a video, video-conferencing across the world, or tweaking graphics, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 features amazing display options. Experience the cinematic 4K Dolby Vision™ panel with high dynamic range (HDR) technology—intricate details pop while shadows and textures become richer. Choose an FHD touchscreen, also available with PrivacyGuard for screen security.
Security solutions at the front line
Keep your business data and your privacy safe with our comprehensive suite of ThinkShield security solutions. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 includes a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) that encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security. ThinkShutter, a physical camera cover, blocks the lens to ensure that you’re only seen when you want to be. The match-on-chip fingerprint reader, the most secure fingerprint technology available, uses biometrics to log you in with a simple touch.
For your eyes only
As part of ThinkShield security, we offer a combination of hardware and software that work together to ensure what’s on your display is for your eyes only. PrivacyGuard is an electronic privacy filter built into your display to decrease the angle of vision—when others view from an angle, they see only a black screen. PrivacyAlert is an integrated software that works with the IR camera to ensure that if others look over your shoulder, a popup notifies you of the potential threat.
Connection has never been so seamless—or so smart
Lenovo Connect features LTE connectivity across Europe and USA with private connection encryption and authentication. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 includes a 10GB per month x 4 months subscription to Lenovo Connect*, so you can jump online whenever, wherever. And just like with your smartphone, you’ll enjoy an automatic connection to the internet—with no additional login or password required to go online.
