A backlit keyboard allows for typing under dim lighting conditions. Complementing its security features, the Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1 Gen 9 Laptop comes with a 48-month subscription to Lenovo Security Awareness software.

A one-bar hinge, dual fan, and rear exhaust venting allow you to put in long hours on the job without drops in performance due to overheating.
Seamless Integrated Security
The suite of built-in ThinkShield security solutions safeguards your ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and your data. Use the fingerprint reader integrated on the power button to log in and boot up instantaneously with your biometrics.
Easy on the Eyes
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 features a 16:10 display with narrow bezels and a 1920 x 1200 FHD+ resolution. Integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics deliver clear and accurate images for easy videoconferencing, web browsing, or media streaming. Not only is this low-power panel energy efficient, but it's also TÜV-certified for reduced blue light emissions to promote eye health.
Enhanced Remote Collaboration
The Dolby Atmos Speaker System on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 laptop includes two upward-firing speakers and two downward-firing woofers to create an immersive sound experience you'll enjoy for work and for play. Dolby Voice and four 360° far-field mics combined with a high-definition camera for visual clarity ensure clear remote collaboration.
ThinkPad laptops are tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. From the Arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust your Carbon X1 to handle whatever life throws your way.
Windows 10 Pro
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Additional Windows 10 Pro Features
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
