Lenovo has wrapped up their CES 2021 announcements with a refresh to the ThinkPad with new Carbon and Yoga laptops. The former comes with an updated design and specification whereas the latter offers a 2-in-1 tablet experience which is what the Yoga moniker is known for. Let us see the detailed specifications and features of these machines.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
It features a 14-inch display in a 16:10 aspect ratio along with thin bezels all around. The redesigned body accommodates a larger touchpad area as well. It is powered by the latest i7 xPro 11th Gen CPUs from Intel and can be coupled with up to 32GB of LPDDR4 RAM and up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage.
Speaking of media and entertainment, there is support for Dolby Voice, which optimizes the mic and speaker by reducing background noise irrespective of the app. It is backed by a 57Whr battery that promises 16 hours of usage and it ships with a 65W USB-C Rapid Charge power adapter. The laptop weighs just 1.13KG. It will be available for purchase at $1,429 from next month.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga
It shares most of the specification from screen size to CPU with the Carbon lineup but the highlight is of course the inclusion of a 2-in-1 design that means it can be rotated in 360-degrees but it has gained weight reaching 1.39KG. The difference is in the display panel as the X1 Carbon has five different choices to offer like Full HD or 4K resolution and touch-enabled or non-touch whereas the X1 Yoga is available only with touch-enabled. In addition, the Yoga has an integrated ThinkPad Pen Pro for creative purposes and penning down notes. It is priced at $1,569 and will hit shelves from next month.
Another model under the Yoga branding is the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga which has a 13.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and the brightness can be cranked up to 450-nits. It is also the thinnest of the lot measuring at just 11mm. Like the other ThinkPad offerings, it is also powered by Intel’s 11th Gen CPUs. In case you are wondering all models support 5G connectivity as it’s in demand these days. You could grab one of these at $1,899 later this month.
ThinkPad X12 Detachable
Finally, we have the ThinkPad X12 Detachable, which features a detachable design and aims to compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro. The display is 12.3-inch in size and has a Full HD+ display resulting in a 3:2 aspect ratio. The touch-enabled panel can achieve a peak brightness of 400 nits.
It is powered by the 11th Gen Intel i7 vPro processor combined with up to 16GB of LPDDR4 RAM. It runs on Windows 10 Pro. The Lenovo Precision Pen could be bought separately as well. In terms of connectivity, it offers Wi-Fi 6 and 4G LTE, and for video calls and clicking pictures there is a 5MP front camera and an 8MP rear camera. Lenovo has priced it at $1,149 and will go on sale in January itself.
