Ahead of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo announced three new ThinkPad X1 devices.
The new X1 devices, which include the X1 Carbon laptop, X1 Yoga hybrid, and the modular X1 Tablet, are "designed for forward thinkers," according to a press release from Lenovo on the updated ThinkPad lineup. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the first convertible to feature a Samsung OLED display, offering deeper blacks and more vibrant colors, though this is optional. The new Yoga hybrid is available with up to an Intel Core i7 processor, 1TB of solid-state drive storage, 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and has a starting price of $1,449. The base model will ship this month, featuring a LCD display, with the OLED model shipping in April. "ThinkPad X1 Carbon continues to stand out as the world's lightest 14-inch business ultrabook," touted Lenovo. The updated X1 Carbon is "thinner, lighter, and more powerful than ever," is about 8% thinner and 10% lighter than its predecessor, and boasts Intel's latest Skylake processors. The X1 Carbon will be available next month, starting at $1,299.
The new ThinkPad X1 Tablet stands apart from its siblings with its add-on abilities. The X1 Tablet offers clip-on modules to boost its capabilities. Users can also add a Productivity Module to boost the tablet's battery life, or a Presenter Module to give the slab a pico projector and HDMI port. The X1 Tablet even offers a 3D Imaging Module, which packs an Intel RealSense camera. Lenovo also offers an active stylus for the tablet, available for $50. Modules are also sold separately. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet will launch in February, starting at $899. Lenovo also announced a new ThinkCentre X1 all-in-one, which will be available starting in March from $1,029.
