    Is that Austin’s nipple there?

  2. Not So Pro Gamer says:

    So do Lenovo products no longer come with Superfish installed at this

    Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon – how does a business-grade laptop stack up
    against our usual gaming variants?

  4. Uriah Siner says:

    what exactly make a laptop “business” grade?

  5. mannosan says:

    why is having “only 8GB” of RAM such a cripple? I can’t imagine anyone
    using this for image or video software, so it can’t be that much of a big
    deal… right?

  6. Ted SN says:

    Im am using the nipple on my school computer becuse its an old sandy bridge
    computer and the touch pad sucks

  7. Dan Wimble says:

    I think a test of the legendary durability would be good, to see if it
    still holds the same standards as before.

  8. Luca Picascia says:

    These comments.. *facepalm*

  9. BeastyNinjaGaming says:

    So what does the ‘orange nipple’ actually do?

  10. myrang3r says:

    Hey linus, I think you might be able to swap the FN-CTRL buttons in bios,
    some thinkpads allow that.

  11. attk master says:

    Nothing on the weak sauce graphics? They could have at least put an 840M or
    a K1100M in there, or offered it.

  12. Robert green says:

    why cant i add you on steam:(

  13. Mew [Jacob/PwnAzn] says:

    but can it play mienkraft?!?

  14. Ire Min Mon says:

    Let’s admit it. The laptop looks absolutely brilliant. The screen is
    absolutely brilliant. If only we could have the edge-to-edge keyboard like
    the new macbook, buttons above the touchpad placed underneath it and I
    wouldn’t mind getting rid of the nipple. Fingerprint scanner placed lower
    if neccessary. That would be close to perfect ultrabook design.

    Who uses their index finger to press the space bar?

  16. iDerekMC says:

    2:36 lol, now intel tells us the speed of integrated gpu xDDDD

  17. jerichom11x says:

    This just plain sucked.

  18. cjdacka says:

    So the ram isn’t user upgradeable?

  19. says:

    Doesn’t Lenovo pack their laptops with malware?

  20. Alexander Madsen says:

    Lets say i change my PSN password… it wont change my E-Mail password
    aswell? Just my PSN password right?

  21. Folopolis says:

    The logic behind not having a 16 GB option is the same as your dismissal of
    the 5200U. It just doesn’t make sense given the rest of the system. 95%
    of the time, if you will use 16GB of RAM, you will have a much more
    powerful processor, and probably a dedicated graphics card with it.

    Currently I stand at 92K (off by 150 from 93K) and aim is 100K today. The
    *+1* would help out a lot :D

  23. SandyStarchild says:

    consumer grade lenovo laptops are horrible quality.

  24. DrawerBoy99 says:

    Quick unrelated question. Is this build any good? Id be using it for gaming
    and working with high resolution images in photoshop cs6 as well as a fair
    bit of multitasking.
