Lenovo has today announced its ThinkPad 2015 product portfolio which features the latest generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the world's lightest 14-inch performance ultrabook.
The company also introduced the ThinkVision X24 monitor and ThinkPad Stack at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show today.
"Since the original ThinkPad 700, ThinkPad engineers have continued to drive innovation by making each new ThinkPad better than the last. Reaching 100 million units sold proves they are succeeding," said Yang Yuanqing, chairman and CEO, Lenovo.
"When we acquired IBM's PC business, we made a promise to not just protect the ThinkPad franchise, but to make it even better, even stronger. Today, ThinkPad continues to be one of the most respected brands in the industry, fueling Lenovo's rise to number one in the global PC industry.
"Now, even as Lenovo expands into mobile devices, servers, and ecosystem and cloud computing, ThinkPad will remain at the core of our strategy and the heart of our business. It is an honour to continue to bring this legendary brand to our customers, and I look forward to many more ThinkPad milestones to come."
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon features new options such as: a super bright FHD display; a PCIe solid state drive for up to 80% faster storage performance than standard SSDs; longer battery life; and weighs under 2.9 pounds.

ThinkPad Stack features a magnetised interlocking design so that multiple Stack accessories take up less space. Featuring Pogo pin technology, the 10,000 mAh Power Bank keep phones and tablets powered up on long trips, the one terabyte USB 3.0 Hard Drive offers huge expansion on the road, the Wireless Access Point ensures a strong and stable WiFi environment while travelling and the Bluetooth Speaker pairs with ThinkPad systems to extend audio playback.
