It was just a week ago when we posted out review of the 7th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook. Technology moves fast, however, and Lenovo has already announced a refreshed model with Intel's latest 10th generation Core processors. However, we're not talking about Intel's 10nm Ice Lake parts, but instead the recently announced 10th generation Comet Lake processors that are still based on 14nm++ process technology. ThinkPad X1 Carbon In addition to the Comet Lake processors, which are available in up to a Core i7 (6 cores, 12 threads), the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also one of the first laptops to gain Intel's Athena certification.

Lenovo is bowling into Las Vegas this year with some revamps to its popular ThinkPad family of products. More specifically, the company has updated both the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (7th generation) and the ThinkPad Yoga (4th generation). Both devices are now thinner and lighter than ever before and come with 8th generation Intel Core processors. Starting off with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, it is now even thinner than the 6th generation model, coming in at 14.95 mm thick; it's also lighter at just 2.46 pounds. Lenovo has spruced things up a bit along the exterior with a new carbon fiber weave pattern that is equal parts cool and professional. If you prefer, you can also opt for the... Read more...
We have covered Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga series since its inception, and while the company might only be on its 3rd generation machine, what's under its hood is what might be thought of as four generations of advancement since then. Of course we are speaking of the 8th Gen Intel Core-i5 8250U quad-core mobile processor on board the new Thinkpad X1 Yoga. What makes this chip different from its predecessor, is it has 4 psychical cores now and supports Hyper-Threading, all within the same 15W power envelope. At just 15W the Core i5-8250U doesn't require hefty thermal solution and large chassis to prevent a full on meltdown  so, Lenovo was able to pack an impressive 8 thread chip... Read more...
Lenovo had a lot of new products on display at CES 2018, and we were on hand to get a hands-on look at what the company has in store for the first half of the year. Of course, the stars of the show were no doubt the newest members of the ThinkPad X1 family. These include the X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga and X1 Tablet. All of the systems have been upgraded with 8th generation Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7) and feature both USB Type-C (3.1) and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga can be had with 14-inch displays with up to 4K resolution, while the X1 Tablet's display measures 13 inches across (3000x2000). We should note that all three machines have PCIe NVMe storage, USB-C charging,... Read more...
If you're a regular reader of HotHardware (which we're sure you are), then you know that we've long been fans of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 family of products.

All three product lines are seeing updates at CES 2018, which keep them in lock-step with the with the latest advancements in the computing industry.  First up is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which is now entering its 6th generation.

One could argue that the two primary features of a modern laptop, that can most prominently define the user experience, would be its display and keyboard. After all, these two aspects make up the majority of a notebook PC's human-computer interface. If that's the case, then Lenovo's latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 2) with OLED display has a rather unfair advantage. As we've noted in the past, Lenovo has some of the best laptop keyboards in the business, at least in terms of usability and feel. And when you couple a 14-inch OLED (Organic LED) display with one of the best laptop keyboard designs on the market, you're definitely starting with a winning combination. Of course, the keyboard and display... Read more...
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga. The X1 Carbon line was introduced in 2012, bringing a largely carbon-fiber filled construction to decrease weight and increase durability compared to their previous X1 ultrabooks, while still maintaining the classic ThinkPad design established way back by IBM. The ThinkPad Yoga line, introduced a year later in 2013, consists of smaller 11 and 13 inch 2-in-1 form factors with a reinforced hinge capable of folding beyond 180 degrees into tent, stand or even tablet modes. Larger Yoga models are now available as well.  Unlike the X1 Carbon, the ThinkPad Yoga maintained... Read more...
