What's cool about it: For the sixth generation of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the popular business notebook gets an enhanced display with brightness of up to 500 nits and optional support for Dolby Vision HDR technology. Other new additions include USB-C mechanical side docking, improved microphones (that reach a farther distance), and eighth-gen Intel Core processors. In addition, the new X1 Carbon offers up to 15 hours of battery life, optional LTE connectivity, and--perhaps best of all--a weight of just 2.49 pounds.
