SanDisk Provides Custom Storage Solution For Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Stocks in this article: SNDK

FLASH MEMORY SUMMIT— SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced it is providing Lenovo with the solid state drive (SSD) used in the new Lenovo ® ThinkPad ® X1 Carbon, the world’s lightest 14-inch Ultrabook computer. 1

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon weighs in at less than three pounds, has an exterior made of extremely lightweight carbon fiber material, boasts optional embedded 3G connectivity for anywhere, anytime Internet access, and relies on a 256GB 2 SanDisk X100 SSD for incredibly responsive, small form factor storage. The version of the SanDisk X100 SSD being used by Lenovo relies on a custom design that is smaller than the typical SSD, helping to reduce both the size and weight of the Lenovo X1 Carbon, as well as reducing power consumption. SanDisk offers the X100 SSD in both 256GB and 128GB capacities.

“Lenovo’s leadership pioneering the X1 Carbon pushes the envelope in terms of bringing ‘no compromise performance’ to an extremely thin, light and connected form factor,” said Tom Butler, director Worldwide ThinkPad Product Marketing, Lenovo. “Collaborating with SanDisk has helped us enable the ThinkPad X1 Carbon’s design.”

“The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is stunning both in terms of its aesthetics as well as its capabilities,” said Kevin Conley, senior vice president and general manager, Client Storage Solutions, SanDisk. “Our custom version of the SanDisk X100 SSD helps Lenovo deliver high-capacity and high-performance storage for this innovative Ultrabook product.”
