As per the company, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11, 13-inch Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 8, and 13-inch ThinkPad Nano Gen 3 will utilize up to 97% of post-consumer content (PCC) plastic for their battery enclosures and 95% PCC plastic for the speaker enclosure and their AC adapter.

What’s more, the X1 Carbon Gen 11 has a palm rest that’s 90% made of recycled magnesium while the bottom cover uses 55% recycled aluminum.

The lightest laptop in the ThinkPad line-up, the ThinkPad X1 Nano, used a “recycled magnesium hybrid” for the palm rest and bottom cover.

What’s more, these laptops are eligible for Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Services program. With this, users can buy carbon offsets based on Lenovo’s estimated projected carbon emissions for five years of device use. Proven effective, the company said that the carbon offset purchases from the ThinkBook and ThinkPad line had offset over 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide.

The new laptops will also be upgraded to the new 13th-Gen Intel Mobile CPUs. The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga, and Nano Gen 2 can be had with up to an Intel Core i7-1280P.



They will also have 2x USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2x USB-A ports, HDMI 2.0b, and a headphone jack. You can also get them with up to 64GB of LPDDR5 RAM, albeit the Nano can also top out at 16GB. They will also have up to 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD storage.


Being the fanciest, the X1 Carbon has a 3840 x 2400 resolution screen with VESA True Black 500 certification. The Yoga uses an OLED screen while the Nano has a pretty basic IPS panel at 2160 x 1350 resolution.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is expected to have a starting price of USD1,729 (~Php95,500), Yoga for USD1,859 (~102,700), and the Nano for USD1,649 (~Php91,100). Sales start in select markets this April.
