Lenovo presented numerous innovations at the virtual CES 2021, including the thinnest ThinkPad to date, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga. Unlike the other novelties, the Titanium Yoga comes with a 3:2 display.
Latest Intel processors
Intel’s Tiger Lake processors provide decent performance for the new X1 Titanium Yoga. Here, Lenovo offers processors up to the 11th generation Intel Core i7 with the also newly introduced vPro models. Here, the CPU can work with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 1 TB of PCIe SSDs. The display of the Lenovo has a diagonal of 13.5 inches, this untypical size comes from the 3:2 ratio of the screen. The 3:2 format was only chosen for the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga. The other new models use the 16:10 format. The new display is supposed to cover 100 percent of the sRGB color space, shine brightly up to 450 cd/m² and render 2,256 x 1,504 pixels. The Titanium Yoga’s screen is also certified for Dolby Vision.
Slimest ThinkPad yet at 11.5mm
The slim notebook comes to just 11.5 mm in height and a total weight of 1.15 kg without the WWAN interface. With the interface, it adds another 30 grams, which is of course not worth mentioning. The Titanium Yoga is 297.5 mm wide and 232.7 mm deep. Apart from the use as a notebook, the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga can also be easily turned into a tablet with the 360-degree hinge. In addition to the classic operation via touch, Lenovo’s included Precision Pen can also be used for input. The ThinkPad’s battery is 44.5 Wh and promises a runtime of up to 10.9 hours. The illuminated keyboard with ThinkPad’s typical TrackPoint for the mouse pointer provides further comfort during handling. In addition, the notebook has a 720p webcam with infrared for Windows Hello and “Privacy Shutter” on board. As well as speakers that radiate upwards and four integrated microphones, so the sound is also good.
The notebook’s connectivity is kept rather small. There are two Thunderbolt 4 ports on the left side of the ThinkPad as standard and a 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones or a microphone on the right. The power button is also found on the right side. A Thunderbolt 4 dock can be purchased from the manufacturer as an option, which enables connecting numerous other formats like USB Type A and Ethernet. To make working wirelessly with the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga fun, Wi-Fi 6 via Intel’s AX201 and Bluetooth 5.1 are available. With the WWAN variant, the notebook can then also be equipped with LTE and a 5G modem.
Availability and price
The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is scheduled to hit the market at the end of February 2021 at a price starting at 2,149 Euros.
