Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11 brings a sensible powerhouse for hybrid workers

Thanks to several events that shook our world, a new trend has been imposed on both employers and employees. As some might wish, working from home would never last forever, but working at the office like it used to is no longer ideal. Hybrid work setups, where people divide their time between the office and any other out-of-office location, are now an option that some companies and employees are starting to embrace. But this also meant that they needed the appropriate tools to support such an arrangement, especially a laptop designed for exactly such a scenario. Lenovo’s next-generation ThinkPads are indeed aimed at this market, and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon X11 offers the most powerful and most traditional computing solution among them.

Even before ownership was transferred from IBM to Lenovo, the ThinkPad brand has been one of the most trusted names among laptops specifically designed with productivity in mind. It was often seen as the standard for what specs and features should go into a business laptop, and the newly announced lineup of portables is no different. For the 30th anniversary of the ThinkPad brand, Lenovo is targeting the latest trend among computer users who work in the office, at home, or even in a public space like a coffee shop.

Of course, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11 has all the essentials of a modern laptop, starting with the latest Intel Core processors, which will be the 13th generation at this point, up to 64GB of fast LPDDR5 memory and up to 2TB. SSD storage. The 14-inch display includes different resolution options up to 2.8K, but there’s no way to add touch support to this list. The laptop uses Intel’s Iris Xe technology for graphics, so using it for gaming can be somewhat limited.

Lenovo is marketing its new ThinkPads as the perfect hybrid partner, especially because of how it can help protect your privacy and security while exercising outdoors. Specifically, the Lenovo View app includes performance optimizations for video conferencing, as well as features that blur your screen or alert you when an unauthorized viewer’s face is detected. It will alert you when your posture is wrong or when your eyes deserve a break to promote digital well-being while you spend more time working even outside of the office.

The new Lenovo ThinkPads also represent a step forward in the company’s sustainability commitments. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11, for example, uses 90% recycled magnesium for the palm rest, 55% recycled aluminum for the bottom cover, and 100% bamboo and sugarcane fiber for the packaging. Lenovo Commercial Vantage software also provides tips and settings to help increase the efficiency of the notebook and reduce power consumption or extend its lifespan. All in all, this new ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop promises a seamless hybrid work experience without unnecessary features and gimmicks to get in the way of your productivity. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11 launches in April 2023 with prices starting at $1,729.
