The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon is a bestselling high-end ultrabook that has been praised for its impressive build quality (MIL-STD 801G tested), its lightweight carbon fiber and magnesium design and for its trusted security features. But it does lack an Ethernet port for office spaces that do not have WiFi and users will have to use the included Ethernet extension connection. Designed for business, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon comes with TPM encryption, a single-touch fingerprint reader and Windows Professional to access additional features.
