Although it was leaked on Lenovo's site a couple of weeks ago, Lenovo has now officially announced the Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch. As the name suggests, it is basically the same X1 Carbon Ultrabook but with a Windows 8 friendly touchscreen.
The new X1 Carbon Touch still features a 14-inch 1600x900 resolution screen with 10-finger multi-touch of course, carbon fiber body, a choice between Core i5-3427U or the Core i7-3667U Ivy Bridge CPU, up to 8GB of DDR3L 1333 RAM, 128GB SSD, a quite recognizable and backlit ThinkPad keyboard and, of course, Windows 8 OS.
Unfortunately, the X1 Carbon Touch is a tad bit thicker and heavier at 20.8mm and 1.54kg than its non-touch counterpart. The touchscreen also adds about US $200 to the price tag so the new Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch starts at US $1,499, according to the Lenovo site.
