Lenovo has launched two new Windows powered devices - the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch and ThinkPad Tablet 8 - to deliver high performance for professionals in Malaysia, said the computer maker.
A full PC experience is offered by the world's lightest Ultrabook - the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch and the premium 8-inch ThinkPad Tablet 8 - according to Lenovo Malaysia country general manager Khoo Hung Chuan during the launch in Kuala Lumpur recently.
"Lenovo continues to push the boundaries of design and technology as we aspire to create the best products in the market," Khoo said. "Our obsession in the pursuit of perfection is evident with the introduction of smarter devices designed to enhance the way people interact at home and at work."
"The New ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch and ThinkPad Tablet 8 deliver a stunning user experience with the best professional display and new interactive methods and represents another step in our PC plus journey," he said.
A beautiful contradiction
Khoo said the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch "is a beautiful contradiction. Uncompromisingly light, weighing only 2.8 pounds, it is virtually indestructible. The lightest 14" Ultrabook in the world has all the power and durability that the modern professional requires."
The Ultrabook includes carbon fibre, which weighs less than magnesium and aluminium but is stronger than both, from the same stock used in aircraft and racing cars, he said.
"The New X1 Carbon Touch features the Adaptive Keyboard, which dynamically adjusts based on the software or application being used to highlight the most relevant keys," Khoo said. "The new Ultrabook is also equipped with gesture control, allowing users to interact with their PC in modern and familiar ways."
The Ultrabook uses Rapid Charge technology, providing an 80 percent charge in under an hour," he said. "There is also an up to 9-hour battery life (more than 70 percent improvement from the last generation) and optional built-in 4G capabilities, the new X1 Carbon Touch has all the mobility and connectivity customers need wherever they go."
The ThinkPad Tablet 8 is constructed from machine-cut aluminium, said Khoo, adding that the device is made for mobile professionals who need the full PC experience while on the move.
He said the tablet includes "a super bright 8.30-inch 1920x1200 display powered by the latest Intel Atom Processor Z3770, up to 64GB eMMC Integrated Storage, WIFI connectivity and a Windows 8.1 32 w MS Office Home & Student 2013."
