How Do You Show Respect for the Planet?

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 (14ʺ Intel) laptop still uses carbon fibre for the chassis — but better yet some of that carbon fibre is recycled from post-industrial remnants and is used along with 90% recycled magnesium. Plus, the chassis, the battery pack, the speaker enclosure, and the power adapter all include recycled post-consumer content. And we don’t stop there. The packaging is 100% plastic-free and comprised in part with rapid-renewable materials made from bamboo-sugar-cane fibre.

Elevated Performance & Lasting Battery

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 boasts the world’s first laptop powered by Intel® Core™ Ultra processors, making it ideal for creating and on-the-go productivity. Enjoy optimized performance with workloads pushed to dedicated AI engines, including the low-power neural processing unit (NPU) for sustained tasks and resiliant battery life. Go ahead, turn on auto-framing or low-light enhancement for your online meetings, even when unplugged! Choose the Intel vPro® Evo™ Edition, for multilayer security, professional-grade performance, reliable stability, and complete management for IT.

Raise the Bar on Collaboration

A Communications Bar, positioned at the top of the display for easy laptop opening, houses two cameras (FHD / infrared (IR)) — or upgrade to the premium 8MP & IR Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) with Computer Vision — both options include a webcam privacy shutter. Additionally, two 360-degree mics with AI-based noise cancellation, combined with Dolby Voice® and Dolby Atmos® deliver a superb audio experience. Plus, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 is Zoom-certified. Make calls, listen to music, or watch a video and enjoy the sublime sounds.

You Spoke. We Listened: We’ve Redesigned Our Legendary Keyboard

Our redesigned ThinkPad keyboard now includes tactile markings to help people with visual impairments more easily find the correct keys. We’ve moved the fingerprint reader to the keyboard, resulting in a larger sensor for a better experience. Plus, our TrackPad is even larger now, at 120mm / 4.72ʺ. Our beloved red TrackPoint still lets you navigate — but with a double tap, it opens the ThinkPad TrackPoint Quick Menu to optimize audio-visuals, set alerts against muting, and even take notes with the Dictation Toolbar for handy speech-to-text transcription.

A Feast for the Eyes

Razor-thin bezels frame an optional stunning 14ʺ 2.8K OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. Sharp, clear details make content pop and colours more vibrant than ever on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 laptop. But perhaps the best part yet? It’s easy on the eyes with Eyesafe® certification, so you can put in the long hours to meet your deadlines and not worry about eye-strain and fatigue.

Engineered for a No-Compromise Experience

The Intel® Evo™ Edition, ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 laptop is engineered to do it all. Experience all-day battery life, instant wake, and best-in-class connectivity. No matter what tasks you tackle, this device is highly responsive. Plus, with Intel® Unison™, you can sync your laptop with any iOS or Android smartphone and then call or text, and even transfer files, photos, and videos all from the convenience of your PC.
