Lenovo's ThinkPad T470 2017 is Lighter and More Secure

Lenovo Think Pad X1 Tablet

Users can configure the laptop with up to 1TB of SSD storage and up to 16GB of DDR3 DRAM.

First there's the design, because while metal tends to reign supreme in the serious laptop world, Lenovo is going in a different direction, opting to use the strength of carbon fibre instead, releasing the X1 Carbon in both silver and black, meaning you're not stuck with Lenovo's typically black colour scheme for this machine. The X1 Yoga should be available at the same time, starting at $1,499.

Lenovo's popular ThinkPad X1 series has also been updated with Kaby Lake processors across the board. There are three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, gigabit Ethernet, a microSD slot, a 3.5mm headset jack and a Micro SIM card slot. ThinkPad X1 is designed with the sole goal of offering the best possible experience, by embracing workplace transformation, supporting personal workstyles and design choices, and by balancing security and manageability needs for an agile IT infrastructure. Like the Surface Pro, it also has a detachable keyboard.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet will become available in March at a $949 starting price.

Coming to specifications, the Legion Y720 comes with a 15.6-inch full HD IPS display. The notebook weighs in at 1.14kgs and sports a 14-inch IPS display along with an augmented Microsoft Precision Touchpad, which has physical buttons, and TrackPoint. Storage options are aplenty as Lenovo is offering the X1 Carbon at the following options: 128 GB, 180 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB SSD Intel PCIe TLC OPAL2, 512 GB SSD PCIe TLC OPAL2 and 1 TB SSD PCIe TLC OPAL2.

Lenovo also makes a version of the QHD-resolution screen with an OLED panel as an upgrade. Two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support are now standard. It boasts similar features to the Yoga-branded model, but drops support for the active digitizing pen and comes with one fewer USB 3.0 port to keep things slim and light. In China, the Lenovo smart home Smart Assistant speakers will utilize local search engine providers to deliver similar capabilities. The Carbon edition starts at $1,349 and goes on sale next month. The alleged laptops are exclusively devised for mainstream players.

The laptop will come with a fully retractable keyboard.

As regards connectivity, the X1 will be rolled-out 5G-ready on wireless Wide Area Networks (Wireless WAN), as well as WiGigTM to allow low latency-mass data transfer which is ideal for immersive augmented and virtual reality usually used in video games, and high speed download of High Definition content over the internet. Legion Y720 ships in April starting at $1399.99 with the Y520 shipping in February starting at $899.99. The smaller Legion Y520 features Nvidia graphics up to GeForce GTX 1050. It is lighter at 5.3 pounds, and the system comes with custom audio tuning instead of the Dolby Atmos support of the more premium Legion Y720.

The firm's president and COO Gianfranco Lanci said the ThinkPad X1 family of PCs was developed in response to expressed needs of consumers who now "blur the line between work and personal PC use". My sample model had an Intel Core i7-7600U processor - a dual-core chip with Hyper-Threading for better intense workload performance.
