At this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo introduced a big line of products that will now fall under the X1 product family. Among the products announced are the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, and the ThinkCentre X1.
Originally the X1 line was just the X1 Carbon ultrabook, which is also getting an update. The new Carbon models will include sixth generation Skylake processors, a thinner, lighter frame, and a fingerprint reader.
The entire console will have a 14-inch screen, 11-hour battery life, 0.66 inches thick, and weighs 2.6 pounds. Available in February, it will start at $1,299 and run Windows 10.
The new Yoga addition to the line is very similar to the Carbon model but adds touchscreen compatibility and a 360-degree hinge, like other Yoga models. This extremely flexible hinge will allow users to flip the keyboard behind the display and use the Thinkpad X1 Yoga computer like a tablet. The X1 Yoga will be released later this month with a starting price at $1,449.
The configurations for both the X1 Yoga and the X1 Carbon can have, at maximum, Core i7 processors, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of SSD space, and 1080p or 2560 x 1440 displays. For $200 more the X1 Yoga can come with a 2560 x 1440 OLED display, which as The Verge stated, will provide more intense colors and deeper blacks on the screen.
Forbes remarked that the X1 line's focus is flexibility for the user. This adaptability is well suited for a workplace that is constantly changing. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is Lenovo's Surface competitor for business users, available in February for $899.
The tablet has a detachable keyboard, 0.33 inches thick, and is a two-in-one convertible. It has a 12-inch screen with options for a full HD+ panel or a 2K screen. The tablet, with the keyboard, is 2.4 pounds and without is 1.75 pounds.
As TechRadar stated, the best feature of the X1 Tablet is its ability to adapt to users' needs with different modules. A Productivity module adds five additional hours of battery life and HDMI and onelink+ ports for $149.
With the Presenter module, $279, a pico projector is added that projects a 60-inch image from 2 meters away and an HDMI port. For $149, the 3D Imaging module gives users the ability to make 3D scans and 3D print.
The ThinkCentre X1 desktop starts with a 1080p display and 500GB spinning disk drive. The 24" IPS display screen has an anti-glare coating and can be angled between -5 and 45 degrees. It can be configured with Intel's Skylake Core i7 processor and 16GB DDR4 RAM. The desktop will be available in March starting at $1,029.
Lenovo is making strides to provide the user with options that will optimize their workflow and increase their productivity. Their X1 Yoga computer will allow users the option of a computer and tablet at a moment's notice while their ThinkCentre gives users the flexibility to customize their desktop with accessories. With the X1 line coming out this year, users can find that they do not need to be limited by the devices they have.
