Lenovo website reveals ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch ultrabook for Windows 8

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

Lenovo is set to expand its growing lineup of Windows 8 devices with a revision of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon tailored for Microsoft's new OS. According to a page on the company's website, which has been posted ahead of any official announcement, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch will be released in December. As you'd expect, it's been designed with touch in mind; the device's 14-inch screen will include multitouch support for up to 10 fingers. Lenovo's site lists an "HD+" display among the ultrabook's specs, hinting that the company may have finally paired a 1080p panel with hardware we were otherwise quite fond of in the original, non-touch ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Sadly there aren't any other details pertaining to the new Touch model, with Lenovo again heralding its light construction and carbon fiber build. Nonetheless, seeing as it's freely visible on the web, we expect to hear more soon.

Update: As pointed out in comments below, Lenovo's definition of "HD+" most often means 1600x900, suggesting that the display on the X1 Carbon Touch may in fact maintain the same resolution as its predecessor.

Thanks, sentinel23!
