The first models of Lenovo’s Thinkpad X1 series arrived on schedule this year, and the company has just announced four machines in the form of the popular X1 Carbon, X1 Titanium Yoga, X1 Yoga and Thinkpad X12 Detachable. Machines designed primarily for enterprise users will hit the market in the coming weeks, all equipped with Intel’s latest 11th-generation Tiger Lake Core chips and Intel Iris Xe graphics.
X1 CARBON, THE REFORMED CLASSIC
Reaching its 9th generation, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon has undergone a serious crease compared to previous years, the most spectacular innovation being the 14-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio display with more vertical range of motion, available in 1920×1200 pixels and UHD on demand . Thanks to the redesign of the X1 Carbon, not only has the screen fattened, the touchpad under the keyboard has also become wider.
The notebook can hold up to 32 gigabytes of LPDDR4-4267 RAM, and the manufacturer has set the maximum of SSD storage at 2 terabytes. The 1.13kg, 14.9mm-thin laptop has two Thunderbolt 4s, two standard USB 3.2 sockets, an HDMI 2.0 and headset jack, and a nanoSIM socket on the sides – the latter can optionally accommodate an LTE or 5G connection. Of course, the machine also supports Wi-Fi 6, like all the recently announced ThinkPads.
A larger copy of the battery has also been packed into the housing, and the new X1 Carbon already has a 57 Wh battery, which, according to the manufacturer, provides 16 hours of operating time. The notebook will hit the market in February at a net starting price of $ 1,430.
2021 YOGA COUPLE
The line of ThinkPad X1 Yoga hybrids with a 360-degree fold-back display will soon be expanded with two models this year. The field, 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Yoga is already in its sixth generation and, in addition to the more flexible design, brings essentially the same hardware offering as the new X1 Carbon, similar to the latter now with a 16:10 display. The thickness of the housing is also the same as the X1 Carboné, however, this Yoga model is slightly heavier at 1.39 kilograms. The hybrid will also start in February, starting at $ 1,570 net.
The other member of the duo is even more interesting: the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, in addition to its display that can also be tilted back 360 degrees, is Lenovo’s thinnest ThinkPad notebook to date with 11 millimeters. The name of the device is due to its cover, as in the usual way from the Yoga series, the metal-gray machine was coated with titanium by the manufacturer. The slim case also comes with a smaller diagonal, the Titanium Edition has a 13.5-inch, 3: 2 aspect ratio display higher than the above models, lined with 2256×1504 pixels – the 450-bit brightness panel otherwise covers 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut.
The RAM and storage options have been slightly reduced here by the manufacturer, the memory peaks at 16 gigabytes of LPDDR4x RAM, and a PCIe 3.0 SSD with a capacity of up to 1 teraby is available for the new model. The smaller size also brings fewer connectors, the device has a Thunderbolt 4 and a USB-C port that supports USB 3.2, along with a headset jack and nanoSIM socket. The machine is also optionally available with LTE and 5G support. The 1.15-pound ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, ahead of the above two models, will hit the market in January, at a net starting price of $ 1,900.
NEW SURFACE RIVAL
The display also includes a model with a detachable keyboard: the ThinkPad X12 Detachable follows a concept familiar from Microsoft Surfaces, and its 12.3-inch display also has a 3: 2 aspect ratio with Full HD + resolution. The hybrid can be equipped with a RAM / storage combination similar to the X1 Titanium Yoga and its connector palette is the same as the above hybrid – however, the 5G option is missing here, it must be matured with LTE. The tablet runs on a 42 Wh battery that Lenovo says can handle an 8.8-millimeter-thin 760-gram device with about 10 hours of operation.
Of course, the hybrid also supports Lenovo’s stylus, with the ability to draw and take notes with the stylus, and in addition to the detachable keyboard, there is also a red Trackpoint mouse, also known as a trademark of the ThinkPad series. The ThinkPad X12 Detachable will also be available in January with a net starting price tag of $ 1,150.
