Lenovo updates its high-end ThinkPad devices. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga are given new specifications.

Lenovo refreshes on CES his Thinkpad X1 Carbon. With a weight of 1.13 kg and a maximum thickness of 14.95 mm, the new X1 is a lot more compact than the first X1s. In addition, the new devices are equipped with a 14-inch screen. According to The Verge, Lenovo calls the laptop the lightest business 14 inch laptop in the world.

Lenovo updates the inside of the laptop further with Intel Core carcass of the eighth generation. You can enjoy up to 16GB of RAM and PCIe SSD storage with a capacity of up to 2 TB. When it comes to screens, you can choose between full HD, 4K or a special new FHD panel that would use very little power.

The autonomy of the laptop with this panel is up to 15 hours. The ThinkPad has optional CAT 16 LTE connectivity on board, in addition to two USB 3.1 ports and two USB-C ports, both of which are Thunderbolt compatible. Four far-field microphones are supposed to make video calls more comfortable. The laptop is also ready for digital assistants such as Cortana or Alexa, but they are still not available from us in a business usefull way.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has to be on our shelves from June. The laptop is available with a price tag from 1.709 euro. We do not yet know a recommended price in Euro.


Lenovo not only takes care of the Carbon, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga also gets an update. This unit also becomes lighter (weighing 1.35 kg) and thinner (15.2 mm). The screen edges are getting smaller and the laptop is now available in a grey aluminium chassis. The choice of this new material is responsible for the smaller footprint. The specifications are also very reminiscent of the X1 Carbon, with eighth generation cpus, 16GB of RAM and 2 TB of PCIe SSD memory. Screens are available again with resolutions from FHD to 4K.

As the name suggests, the Yoga has a screen that can be completely folded down, so that you can use the device in presentation mode and tablet mode. The new ThinkPad X1 Yoga is also available from June, and that from $1,919.
