Wherever the road takes you

At 6% thinner than its predecessor, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is only 14.9mm thin—or just a hair more than a half inch—and it weighs only 2.4lb/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*.


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.


Easy on the eyes

Whether you’re watching a video, Skyping across the world, or looking at graphics, the Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 features amazing visuals. Choose from several displays, including an FHD touchscreen, or an FHD panel with PrivacyGuard* for screen security. Or experience the cinematic 4K Dolby Vision™ panel with high dynamic range technology—intricate details pop while shadows and textures become richer.


Big sound, little system

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 laptop includes surround-sound with Dolby Atmos® Speaker System. Two up-firing speakers alongside the keyboard combine with two down-firing woofers on the bottom of the machine. The result? Enhanced audio that seemingly flows all around you. 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.


Built for life's extremes

Like all ThinkPad laptops, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure it runs 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.


A laptop as well-connected as you

When you’re out and about, the ThinkPad 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.


We've got your back-and your front

Keep your business data—and your privacy—safe with the ThinkPad 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. The fingerprint reader uses biometrics to log you in with a simple touch. Or, use the optional IR camera with Windows Hello to log in with your smile.


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.
