End-User Insight and Engineers Perfect the ThinkPad X1

Since the launch of the ThinkPad X1 line in 2011, it has always embodied our thinnest, lightest no-compromise flagship product for our commercial portfolio.  For 2019, we have focused on refining them with improvements that most discerning users will appreciate. What’s more, we have listened to our customers and evolved the laptops’ look and feel to represent the demands of a contemporary and dynamic workforce.

Today, we announce our latest ThinkPad X1 products: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen and ThinkPad X1 Yoga 4th Gen. Highlights of the portfolio include:

  • X1 Carbon 7th Gen and X1 Yoga 4th Gen are both thinner and lighter than ever
  • X1 Yoga 4th Gen now available in an all-aluminium chassis
  • New display options, including a low power 400 nit FHD display with ThinkPad PrivacyGuard
  • New Dolby Atmos™ Speaker System with four speakers and four far-field mics
  • Latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors
  • New Cat16 LTE-A option and enhanced WLAN and WWAN antenna design
  • ThinkShutter now available on both HD and IR cameras

“One of our core strategies is to use our extensive customer insight to develop new designs and offer a wider choice, as seen in our X1 line.  For years, our customers have been asking for an all-aluminum ThinkPad and we’ve been studying metal materials to determine the right timing and the right process to deliver the quality that ThinkPad customers expect.”  Said Christian Teismann, senior vice president and general manager, Lenovo Commercial Business Segment.

Additionally, the Lenovo portfolio expands today with a host of new visual and peripheral solutions and accessories, including a new ThinkVision 43.3-inch P44w that provides ultra-wide dual-display capability without bezels.

Design of Choice:

One aspect that will certainly be noticed are new design languages on both laptops.

Unmistakeably a ThinkPad, the 7th generation X1 Carbon will be available with a visible carbon fiber weave top cover. For years, we’ve named our flagship Windows 10 notebook with the very pragmatic name, X1 Carbon, to call attention to the product’s material. Many of our customers have suggested that in order to appreciate the strength of the material, it should be visible, as seen in the automotive and motorsport industries. On the premium X1 Carbon model with a 4K Dolby Vision™ display, we have developed a top cover where the weave is evident to further highlight the use of carbon fiber in the construction of the world’s lightest commercial 14” notebook1.

The 2019 ThinkPad X1 Yoga is an all-new full precision-machined aluminum chassis in a beautiful iron grey color.

While aluminium laptops are not new, our ThinkPad durability and reliability tests are so stringent that it’s unlikely most laptops in this class would pass those tests. Aluminum is just as strong as carbon fiber, but needs extra thickness for strength and rigidity, thus making it heavier. Making it thinner to meet our own weight requirements presents design challenges, in particular on corners and edges. We tackled these head-on with our engineering team who created a thinner, lighter, and smaller design than the previous generation ThinkPad X1 Yoga, while maintaining the rugged quality that allows this to be a do anything, anywhere design users expect from ThinkPads.

“Creating the 2019 ThinkPad X1 Yoga required us to completely go back to the drawing board and develop all new approaches,” said Jerry Paradise, vice president, Commercial Product Portfolio.  “The challenge of reimagining our engineering, design and materials while achieving the reliability, quality, and usability required of a ThinkPad was massive, but the end result will provide a delightful customer experience.”

Best in class audio and imaging technology developed by Dolby

We’ve also collaborated with Dolby to bring best in class audio and imaging technology to our latest line-up of X1 laptops. In addition to a Dolby Vision™ option, which transforms your viewing experience with ultra-vivid picture quality, the new X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga also feature Dolby Atmos™ Speaker System. Dolby Atmos Speaker System creates an immersive audio experience over four Dolby custom-designed and tuned PC speakers, and over any pair of headphones. It delivers breath-taking, moving audio that flows around you, making you feel like you’re inside the action as sound comes alive with richness, depth, and precision.

Together, the fusion of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Speaker System transforms your ThinkPad X1 into a multimedia powerhouse.

Security should be on every user’s mind

High profile breaches have become commonplace. In 2018, more than 1.4 billion passwords were hacked, most of which were sold in the DarkNet. By 2021, the cost of cybercrime is estimated at 6 Trillion dollars3. That is equivalent to the GDP of Japan, or the UK and France combined. And these cases are becoming more and more high-profile, with Fortune 500 companies falling victim, resulting in damaged reputations, fallen market caps, and in many cases, job loss. Security should be the number one consideration when purchasing a new PC.
