ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 - 8th Gen Intel

Wherever the road takes you

At 6% thinner than its predecessor, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is only 14.9 mm thin—or just a hair more than a half inch—and it weighs only 1.08kg. This lightweight package reinvents portability and untethers you from the office. With a battery life of up to 18.3 hours, and Rapid Charge when you do need more juice, you can go wherever the road—or the sky—takes you*.

* Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.

Small package, big punch

Powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and up to 16GB memory, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 packs a lot of punch. The PCIe solid-state drive (SSD) delivers speedy performance sure to boost your productivity.

Built for life's extremes

Like all ThinkPad laptops, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 undergoes some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase one.

A laptop as well-connected as you

When you’re out and about, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 can keep you online even when there’s no WiFi. Choose the optional LTE-A card and the WWAN technology lets your laptop function like a smartphone—where there’s cellular service you can always jump online. And you can trust that your connection is secure.

*WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it’s not upgradeable.

We've got your back-and your front

Keep your business data—and your privacy—safe with the X1 Carbon Gen 7 laptop’s comprehensive suite of ThinkShield security features. Its discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) 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. And the fingerprint reader 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 system that decreases the angle of vision on your display, such that only your eyes, when facing head-on, can see content. All others see a darkened screen. PrivacyAlert* is an integrated software that works with the IR camera to ensure that if others look over your shoulder, then a popup notifies you of the potential threat.

*Requires the optional IR camera.
