Lenovo has quietly announced that it has updated the specs of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. While it still retains its carbon fibre shell and weighs less than two kilograms, the refresh sees the ultrabook has a fifth-generation Intel Core processor and longer battery life – with Lenovo promising nearly 11 hours.

Specs on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon include a 14-inch display (with a touchscreen option), up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and Intel HD GT2 graphics. Storage options range up to a PCIe 512GB SSD, and it includes a 720p camera. Connectivity options include 4G LTE and 802.11ac wireless, which will depend on the region.

The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon starts at US$1249 and will be available later in the month in the United States. No word on Australian availability.
