Another year, another CES tech show. Just as it did in the past, Lenovo has refreshed several of its tech products. It’s no surprise then that the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is once again getting a new look for 2015.

Similar to the 2014 model, the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a 14-inch ultrabook with a similarly carbon-fiber construction and the proprietary TrackPoint mouse. Improvements should be noticeable in terms of performance, since this year’s model boasts a 5th-generation (Broadwell) Intel i7 Core processor and a PCIe solid state drive. It also features Intel GT2 graphics, 10-point multi-touchscreen, and a WQHD (2560-by-1440) display resolution. Battery life lasts for up to 10.9 hours. There’s also the rare and optional 4G LTE connectivity, along with Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

Other specs of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon include Dolby Advanced Audio v4, HDMI, 3.5mm combo jack, Bluetooth 4.0, keyboard backlighting and a 720p camera. Windows 8.1 is the default operating system. Prospective buyers can customize the internal storage and RAM up to 512GB and 8GB, respectively. As an ultrabook, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon only weighs 1.31 kg and measures 331 x 226.5 x 17.7 mm.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is slated for release later this month. Price starts at $1,249.
