Lenovo may be up to producing yet thinner ultrabook called ThinkPad 9 Slim.
The ThinkPad 9 Slim ultrabook is to be less than 10 mm (0.38 inches) thin and weighing less than a kilo. At this point it is unclear whether this is just a prototype, that may never see the light, or whether this is Lenovo’s next in line to replace current ThinkPad ultrabooks.
The 13-inch display of this super thin notebook is to pack an awesome 3,200 x 1,800 pixels. The processor will no doubt to be of Intel Haswell variety.
The is to follow the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch ultrabook’s chassis using 0.6mm thick Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP). At 9.74 mm thickness, the device is bound to become hot real quick. Lenovo is addressing this problem with 1mm thick special fans, which are optimized to create a decent airflow even under low speeds.
The new ThinkPad 9 Slim is to feature a special face recognition security system called ‘ThinkVantage AutoLock’, which upon recognizing your face is to unlock the screen. There isn’t much more available at this point, but it seems to me that if ThinkPad 9 Slim ultrabook comes around before Christmas, this ultrabook will be clearing it.
