2 min read

Lenovo is constantly helping to push the Windows laptop market forward, and nowhere is that more apparent than in its ThinkPad lineup. These business-centric laptops never fail to impress, and at CES 2017, that lineup is getting some big updates — along with some new products.

One of those new products is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, a 2-in-1 laptop designed with versatility, security, and durability in mind.

When it comes to specs, the X1 Yoga brings a 14-inch display with three variants — WQHD OLED, WQHD IPS, and FHD IPS. That display is also a touchscreen which comes in handy while using the device in tablet mode. There’s also an included stylus which is stored inside of the laptop with charging also inside the machine.

Powering the X1 Yoga is 7th generation Intel Core i series processors, up to the i7. There’s also several storage options starting at a 128GB SATA SSD, all the way to a 1TB PCIe SSD. That’s also paired with up to 16GB of RAM and either Intel HD Graphics 620 or Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 depending on the model you pick. Battery life is rated at a minimum of 10.5 hours, but lasts up to 16 hours depending on the model you get.

The machine also packs three full size USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports (also used for charging), a microSD card slot, microSIM slot, and a fingerprint reader. It also, of course, runs on Windows 10 Pro. The X1 Yoga is just 17mm thin and weighs just over three pounds, or less if you opt for the OLED model, and it comes in either black or silver.

Pricing on the Lenovo X1 Yoga starts at $1,499 and it will be available starting in February 2017. Stay tuned for a hands-on look from CES over on our YouTube channel!
