Lenovo kicks off 2015 by crossing a big time milestone
If you thought Lenovo would slow its roll in 2015, think again. The world's top PC supplier is currently celebrating over 100 million ThinkPad unit sales to date, which is enough to equip every man, woman, and child in Canada almost three times over (in case a bit of perspective is needed). And to keep the good times going, Lenovo is showcasing a number of new products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, including its third generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
This is the second of two posts outlining PC-related products Lenovo intends to show off at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week (if you haven't already, check out Part 1). Lenovo is headed to the convention with guns-a-blazing, and in addition to everything that's been unveiled so far, the OEM will demo a new X1 Carbon ultrabook, a ThinkPad 8 tablet for professionals, some new laptops, and more.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of the ThinkPad brand, which was developed by IBM and then sold to Lenovo in 2005. To celebrate the occasion, Lenovo today announced the release of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook model at a company-sponsored event in Beijing. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a 14-inch Ultrabook that weighs less than 3 pounds and boasts an 8-hour battery life.
