Laptop computers are more than tools. They are a reflection of what can happen when cutting edge technology and excellent design come together to create objects that not only help us work more efficiently but make us feel better about working. ThinkPad computers have been at the forefront of this intersection for over two decades.

While we crave the power of the latest processors, access to lots of fast storage and plenty of system memory for work, we also want to enjoy streaming content, the latest games and communicate with family and friends during our downtime.

The tradition of great design creating amazing user experiences is part of the ThinkPad tradition. Computers, like the ThinkPad 701CS, with its innovative ’butterfly’ keyboard, have even found their place in an exhibit at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley. So, it’s no surprise to see Lenovo’s latest ThinkPad X1 line continue delivering beautifully designed devices that make using a computer a joy.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 line represents the pinnacle of the union between beautiful form and powerful function. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme brings together a 9th generation Intel® Core™ processor with enough storage and memory to meet the needs of even the most demanding users. But by bringing that together with a gorgeous 15.6-inch high definition or 4K anti-glare display, superior in-built speakers and microphones, and a keyboard that makes typing a pleasure, it is more than the sum of its parts.

While the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is an amazing portable computer ready for gaming or streaming, it’s no slouch in the office. The graphics processor supports up to four external displays. And if you think moving a cursor, using either the smooth trackpad or Lenovo’s unique TrackPoint, might be a challenge, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme’s optional IR camera includes Glance technology. This innovative use of the IR camera allows the cursor to automatically focus on what you look at with just a move of your eyes.

When it comes to flexibility, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, powered by a 10th generation Intel® processor, can make the shift from laptop to tablet with a simple flip of the screen. With a variety of memory and storage options, it can meet the needs of even the most fastidious users. But, like the rest of its siblings in the X1 family, the Yoga is more than a collection of great components. It transitions easily from office laptop to a media streaming powerhouse with a crisp 14-inch display with options for full high definition or greater resolutions and a Dolby Atmos® Speaker System. Or it can be a tablet supported by Lenovo’s ThinkPad Pen Pro, which neatly slides in and out of space built into the sleek and robust aluminium chassis.

The new Intel® processors outgun their competitors, offering lightning fast performance that helps to drive reliable and fast connectivity. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga delivers the latest communications technology, including Wi-Fi 6 and LTE so you can take advantage of fast and secure communications. And the focus on security includes a protective shutter for the camera, hardware-based encryption using the ThinkPad Trusted Platform Module and a fingerprint scanner for logging in.

The ThinkPad X1 family reflects years of experience and refinement in creating great looking, robust and powerful computers. And the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, now in its eighth generation, is no exception. Inside the sleek matte black case is a 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor supported by enough memory and solid-state storage to meet the needs of almost every user. The CPU performance tops its competitors in benchmarks that mimic real-world workloads for everyone from knowledge workers to gamers.

The bright, anti-glare 14-inch display comes in full HD and WQHD options and is perfect whether you’re watching the latest blockbuster or crunching numbers on a complex spreadsheet. The Dolby Atmos® speaker array means you’ll enjoy your movie or be able to hear family or colleagues on a call. And they’ll hear you perfectly through four 360-degree microphones that cancel unwanted noise and can pick up your voice from across the room.

Every member of the ThinkPad X1 family delivers amazing battery life. That’s not just about packing a large battery – it’s also about a fast charging system that can give you 80% of the full charge in just an hour. While a full charge will deliver as much as 19 hours of run time, a trip to the power outlet while you’re at lunch will give enough energy to keep working for the rest of the day with enough juice to stay entertained in the evening.

A great computer is about more than just bringing together a fast processor, lots of memory and capacious storage. It’s about bringing all that together through innovative and thoughtful design that puts the user at the centre. When you take a ThinkPad X1 out of your bag and start working, playing or communicating, those decades of experience in creating computers that are made for real people is evident. From the feel of the keyboard to watching a movie or viewing a document on the display, everything about how the ThinkPad X1 is designed is about people.
