Cool under pressure
The new one-bar hinge, dual fan, and rear venting for an improved Intelligent Thermal Solution mean you can put in long hours on the job, and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 laptop will stay as cool as you are.
Security integrated seamlessly
With an updated suite of built-in ThinkShield security solutions, safeguards your ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and your data. Biometrics provide an extra-secure fingerprint reader that is standard and is integrated with the power button—so you can log in and boot up instantaneously. Human-presence detection automatically locks your device when you move away, and in combination with the optional IR camera, it enables zero-touch login even from sleep. Plus, choose the PrivacyGuard display panel to ensure wandering eyes can’t see what’s on your screen.
Vibrant visuals easy on the eyes
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 features a refined 16:10 display with narrow bezels and a rich, high-resolution screen. Choose the UHD+ panel with Dolby Vision™ to improve your viewing experience. Powerful Intel® Iris™ Xe graphics render amazing picture clarity and color accuracy—whether you’re video-conferencing, browsing, or watching media. Not only is this low-power panel energy efficient, but it’s also TÜV Rheinland-certified for reduced blue-light emissions to promote eye-care 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—this creates an immersive sound experience you’ll enjoy for work and for play. Dolby Voice® and four 360-degree far-field mics combined with a high-definition camera for visual clarity improve remote collaboration and ensure you’re heard loud and clear during calls.
