You can always count on Lenovo to have a big showing at CES and this year is no different. The business-minded PC maker has refreshed much of its lineup for 2016 but perhaps the most intriguing products are a trio of models from the ThinkPad X1 series.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is described as the lightest 14-inch business Ultrabook around, measuring just 0.65 inches thin and tipping the scales at 2.6 pounds. It's powered by Intel's latest 6th generation Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory and up to a 1TB PCIe NVMe solid state drive. That 14-inch display arrives in your choice of 2,560 x 1,440 or 1,920 x 1,080 configurations.
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga, meanwhile, is being heralded as the world's first convertible with an OLED display. It, too, can be configured with up to a 6th generation Core i7, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD as well as the aforementioned 14-inch OLED 2,560 x 1,440 touch display (or a less exciting 1,920 x 1,080 panel).
Last but certainly not least is the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, a Surface-minded tablet with serious power. The X1 Tablet can be equipped with up to a 6th generation Intel Core m7 processor, 16GB of RAM and yep, you guessed it, a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD. Its 12-inch display is available in a single resolution: 2,160 x 1,440.
By far, the X1 Tablet's most interesting feature is its Ultra Connect modular design which lets you use optional clip-on modules to increase battery life, utilize a rear-facing Intel RealSense camera or install a pico projector. Likely to be a favorite among road warriors, the battery module increases use up to 15 hours total.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon goes on sale in February starting at $1,299 while the ThinkPad X1 Yoga can be yours later this month from $1,449. The new ThinkPad X1 Tablet begins at $899 in February with modules ranging in price from $149 to $299 and availability starting in February.
