Lenovo steps it up with new ThinkShield privacy and security on the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops, with ThinkPad PrivacyGuard shielding your display from someone looking at your display, or alerting you when someone is looking at it. Lenovo goes as far as including a physical slider to block the built-in webcam, something the company calls ThinkShutter.

The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon can be configured with Intel's latest 10th-gen Comet Lake CPUs, with Lenovo offering vPro versions of the laptop, too. Lenovo offers either 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, up to 2TB of PCIe-based SSD, 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, 2 x Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI 1.4 output, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Lenovo promises anywhere between 10 to 18.5 hours of battery life with its 51Wh battery, with it weighing 2.4 pounds. Lenovo kicks off pricing at $1499 for its new ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop.

There are 4 display options:

  • Full HD (1920x1080) touch or non-touch, 400 nits' maximum brightness
  • Full HD IPS touch with PrivacyGuard and 500 nits' maximum brightness
  • WQHD (2560x1440) IPS with 300 nits' maximum brightness
