In addition, a multi-touch option is now available on the X1 Carbon, the world’s lightest 14” commercial laptop. 

ThinkShutter Camera Privacy:

One of our customers’ top concerns is webcam privacy and the fear of being “spied upon” through unauthorized control of their webcam. That’s why we designed the new ThinkShutter Camera Privacy on X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga to address this pain point. It functions as a physical webcam cover, so no more sticky-notes.  

World Class Docking Solutions:

ThinkPad X1 Carbon supports the most extensive docking portfolio in the industry, including a new side mechanical dock using standard USB-C connectors giving maximum flexibility and keylock security to the user.  Customers can also opt for alternative docking solutions including USB-C and Thunderbolt™ 3. Our extensively tested portfolio offers simple home, hot-desk or huddle room docking flexibility. Users will get quick access to remote resources, high-speed Input/Output and dual 4K display capability, all while their ThinkPad battery continues to be charged.

Amazon Alexa Enabled3: With Amazon Alexa on the new X1 series you can play music, get news, control your smart home or shop just using your voice. Alexa is always getting smarter, delivering new capabilities automatically. Using Alexa on the new X1 series is simple and hands free – just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.

Lenovo Crystal Image:

Crystal Image is an enhanced, minimal-profile software preload based on the highly praised Microsoft Signature image.  ThinkPad Crystal Image streamlines and reduces the number of preloaded Apps, lays the foundation to support the future of customer deployment and imaging via Microsoft AutoPilot. 

ThinkPad X1 Series in Detail:

ThinkPad X1 Tablet: Reengineered for Premium Mobility

The redesigned 3rd generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet brings full PC performance and function into an all new detachable form factor powered by Intel 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. A new vibrant 13-inch 3K display compatible with HDR2, an improved full-function ThinkPad keyboard experience and optional global LTE-A connectivity offer uncompromised productivity and mobility.    

We designed the ThinkPad X1 Tablet to withstand nearly any work environment with MIL-SPEC testing for ruggedness and durability. Understanding that the desk may not be the digital professional’s everyday work space, X1 Tablet supports natural interactions with a new pen, facial recognition via IR camera and all-day battery life6.  The optional Lenovo Pen Pro supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and provides a natural and responsive writing experience with tilt-to-shade function and up to 26 days of battery life on a full charge. 

ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Gen: The World’s Lightest 14-Inch Business Laptop

Tested to survive water, extreme heat and ice7, the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon merges beauty and legendary durability to create a laptop packed with distinctive engineering. New USB-C mechanical side docking make office connectivity a breeze and your productivity soars with Glance eye tracking as you navigate around your multi-monitor configuration, if you can tear your eyes away from the stunning premium Dolby Vision capable Display. The new microphones with 360o Far Field Communication can reach you up to four meters away, so voice control and web calls remain productive while multi-tasking. And remember to slide across the ThinkShutter if camera privacy is a major concern.

When you leave the office, it gets even better. Global LTE-A wireless connectivity option keeps you in touch virtually everywhere and up to 15 hours of battery life6 will keep you powered throughout the day. With the Rapid Charge battery, a brief one-hour charge adds up to 12 more hours of productivity if you really need it. Laptops are at their most vulnerable on the road, but anti-spoofing fingerprint reader and facial recognition will keep out unwanted users, and provide simple authentication with Windows Hello.

If you want touch display on the thinnest commercial laptop, we now offer FHD touch on the X1 Carbon without any thickness or weight impact.

ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen: The Most Capable Professional 2-in-1

The X1 Yoga, known for its unique retractable keyboard and integrated ThinkPad Pen Pro, takes the innovative capabilities of the X1 Carbon and places them in a convertible form. This means multi-mode enthusiasts can get 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and the all-new Premium Dolby Vision capable display in a flexible form-factor. The new 360o Far-Field Communication microphones support Wake on Voice function and offer superior audio and video conferencing. And the ThinkShutter Camera Privacy securely covers the webcam – a simple solution, but quite an engineering feat in such a thin package. 

Stay agile and connected on the road with Global LTE-A wireless and rest assured that 12 Mil-Spec tests and more than 200 quality checks means the X1 Yoga is built to survive daily business battles. Facial recognition (with the optional IR camera) and fingerprint reader will ensure your data is protected, even if the worst was to happen.

Complementary Accessory Eco-System

The ThinkPad X1 series comes with an extensive list of optional accessories to enhance the user experience and flexibility at work or home. From new docking options to carry cases and privacy filters, we have an option to match virtually every requirement.

For example, augment your home office environment with the new ThinkVision X1 monitor. The updated 27-inch UHD display features one of the world’s slimmest profiles at just 4.7mm and four-side near borderless bezels. The ThinkVision X1 is not just about appearance though. The Thunderbolt™ 3 port offers a true one-cable solution for this display that boasts more than 99 percent sRGB 10-bit color gamut to produce images that are bright and vivid. The webcam features a unique “Motor-Camera” system with dual-array microphones that automatically raises and lowers when the user needs it.
