Lenovo is unleashing a ton of news right now ahead of the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, and it just unveiled the ThinkPad Z1 Carbon laptop and the ThinkPad 8 tablet, two of its new business class machines.

The ThinkPad Z1 Carbon will be a “star of the show” at CES 2014, Lenovo told TechnoBuffalo, and we’re certainly excited to check it out. The notebook is equipped with a fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor, Windows 8.1, a 14-inch screen with either a 1600 x 900-pixel resolution or a 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution, up to 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, stereo speakers, two USB 3.0 ports, a full-size HDMI port, a 720p HD camera, Bluetooth 4.0, a backlit keyboard and up to 9 hours of battery life. It can also be configured with NFC and 4G LTE support. Other features include a lay-flat hinge design and Rapid Charge support for up to 80 percent of battery life in just 50 minutes of charging. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon will start at $1,299 when it launches, though Lenovo didn’t provide an exact release date.

Meanwhile, the ThinkPad 8 tablet, another business machine, sports an 8.3-inch display with a 1920 x 1200-pixel resolution. It runs Windows 8.1 and is powered by a quad-core Intel Z3770 Bay Trail processor clocked at 2.4GHz. It offers 2GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage and can be configured with 4G LTE support.
