Lenovo took advantage of the start of the new year to upgrade almost all of its PC inventory - and also did not miss the prestigious ThinkPad X1 family of models, with the highlight being that it will not necessarily please everyone: Like other manufacturers who tried the field for a short time, here Neglecting negligible technologyOLED Innovative approach in favor of familiar and more established elements.
First in line is the "original" ThinkPad X1 Carbon, with the sixth incarnation of the product that was previously considered the thinnest laptop on the market and was also one of the first to offer an option for an OLED panel in the field. It offers a 15.95mm thick hard shell at the thickest point and weighs less than 1.15 pounds, a 14-inch screen with a trimmed frame, Core i5 and Core i7 quad-core processors from the Kaby Lake-R family, dynamic memory up to 16 GB, drive-based storage SSD Up to 1 terabyte based on the NVMe standard, stereo speakers Built-in LTE modem option, dual-channel 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity with Bluetooth connectivity 4.2, pair of connections Thunderbolt 3 advanced and a promise to my life battery Of up to 15 hours.
This time it is impossible to get the prestigious laptop plus panel OLED, Unfortunately - and is being replaced by panels in IPS technology, with a resolution of 2,560 × 1,440 pixels with improved brightness and contrast, which give it support for the Dolby Vision standard for displaying HDR content, for the first time on a computer Mobile. The base models of theThinkPad X1 Carbon will be offered with screens IPS At a modest 1080p resolution (without HDR support), the base price will start from $ 1,710.
The "ThinkPad X1 Carbon Yoga has won a new generation, the third in its number, with almost identical hardware to its brother with the classic configuration - within a more flexible and unique body that has even swelled accordingly to include all the capabilities without compromising.
The Carbon Yoga will offer the same IPS screens with an 1080p resolution or an 1440p resolution with support for Dolby Vision, and now all have touch support (on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, optional) Core i5 andCore i7 quadratic models with support for or without vPro capabilities, the same volumes of memory and connections Thunderbolt 3 and even those in my life battery 15 hours for a model with a modest screen resolution and 12 hours for a model with the HDR display - when enlarged dimensions weighing 1.4 kilograms and a little over 17 millimeters plus a starting price of almost $ 1,900 are the ones that 'absorb' the necessary additions to the mobile-טאבלט The hybrid.
Last but not least is the updated ThinkPad X1 Tablet, which swells in size but does so for a perfectly justified reason. You'll find an enlarged 13-inch IPS screen with an improved 3,000 × 2,000 pixel resolution, and a big improvement in the form of Kaby Lake-R processors from the latest quad-core replacements with much more modest dual-core Y processors than the original Kaby Lake generation, drive SSD NVM-based with a capacity of between 256 and gigabytes per terabyte, dynamic memory up to 16 GB, built-in wireless modem option, Thunderbolt 3 for all user requirements and a battery that is supposed to last for quite a good nine and a half hours.
Here too there is no screen OLED, Naturally, as was not the case with the previous generations of the tablet. The price will start from $ 1,600, with a keyboard cover and a touch pen that we are happy to have.
Expensive but justified, or too prestigious and irrelevant in the modern market? You are welcome to share the comments with us.
