Usually when we talk about the Chinese manufacturers and products, many think we only focus on less popular brands. Say, when we come in with an article about the best Chinese 2-in-1 laptop, most of you will think we are talking about the Chuwi, Jumper, or Onda products. But today we have no choice, and we just have to call this product ‘the best Chinese convertible laptop’. The third-gen Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga was unveiled a couple of days back at CES 2018. So let’s dive into details and take a look at the hands-on photos.
Though there are made too many changes, the overall dimensions of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga weren’t touched at all. All changes are not noticeable. Say, it has been slimmed down from .66 to .6 inches. As for the weight, now it weighs 3.09 pounds, while the second-gen model was 2.8 pounds. You may think it’s a bit more for a 2-in-1 laptop, but do not forget about its screen size. The key features of the previous model remain intact. It still sports one of the best keyboards you can find on a convertible laptop. The touchpad is responsive.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga comes with a 14-inch Dolby Vision HDR touchscreen, which is one of the major changes made in this model. It comes with a maximum brightness of 500 nits and 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. And we have to note, this is the first HDR screen to appear on a ThinkPad line product. As you guess, the previously popular OLED display has been discontinued due to power drain. The HDR screen provides a better balance between visual punch and endurance. The manufacturer claims it will provide up to 15 hours of battery life.
Of course, this laptop sports the latest Intel’s 8th-generation Core processors, up to the Core i7. They are paired with up to 16GB of RAMs, 1TB of PCI Express solid-state storage, and Intel UHD 620 graphics. There is also a built-in stylus.
Not surprisingly, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is priced at $1,889. But this product targets users who require too much when buying a convertible laptop.
