ThinkPad X1 Yoga, first business laptop with OLED display
The 2nd-generation ThinkPad X1 Yoga offers up to a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 vPro chip, an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 and/or Intel HD Graphics 620 integrated GPU, up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a 128GB-1TB SSD, a 720p webcam, up to 16 hours of battery life, and a redesigned stylus. The device features three USB 3.0 ports, two USB-C ports, an HDMI port, a microSD card slot, and a micro-SIM card slot.
A touch-friendly 14-inch display is available as QHD OLED (2560×1440), QHD (2560×1440), and FHD (1920×1090) — the first one is rated at 300 nits, while the other two have 270 nits. An infrared camera, a fingerprint reader, and NFC are optional. The new keyboard retracts fully flat in tablet mode offering greater stability and user comfort, and anchoring the keycaps delivers better long-term key durability and reliability.
The X1 Yoga is the world's only business laptop available with an OLED display. Colors look more vibrant. Contrast between dark and light areas is significantly sharper. And response time is speedy. So whether you’re creating a presentation or watching a video, you’re sure to be dazzled by its 14 display. You may use the X1 laptop mode when you need to create a spreadsheet or write a report. Then fold it into itself for Tablet Mode or simply rotate the screen, and the unique Wave Keyboard recesses and locks the keys.
The new X1 Yoga has Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A available—so you’ll always have connectivity and access to all your data and apps in the cloud. The X1 Yoga delivers up to 16 hours of battery life. And if you’re running low, the rapid charging feature provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery up to more than 12 hours. The X1 Yoga comes with a built-in, rechargeable pen, so never worry about running out of ink, needing batteries, or misplacing it. ■
