    Ahead of its December launch, Lenovo gave us a sneak peak of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Ultrabook on its website. The 14-incher retains the essential design of its August 2012 launched predecessor, with the addition of Windows 8 Pro, a multi-touch screen, and a screen-resolution marked "HD+," which most probably is 1600 x 900 pixels. No other details were revealed. We don't expect the new X1 Carbon to deviate from its formidable system specs, which includes Core i5 "Ivy Bridge" with vPro processor, GeForce graphics, and SSD/HDD storage options.

    This is a very odd press shot. Can't really make much out except FULL SIZED CURSOR KEYS. Good stuff. I do wish they would have a regular top-end trackpad rather than that multi-button+nipple controller. However, x 900 is rather poor for a top-end 14"-er. I guess "multitouch" is an opportunity to sell old screens with just the capacitive touch layer added.

    I wonder if this will get the yogas hinges.
