CES 2016 – Lenovo Launches Modular ThinkPad X1 Tablet

Lenovo has extended its tablet and laptop options with a number of new releases across its X1 range.

The new launches include the lightweight ThinkPad X1 tablet, which features a modular design that lets users build up their device using a wide range of clip-on modules, offering functions such as an extra power, connectivity or multimedia options.

Weighing just 1.08kg and measuring 0.3in across, and set to cost $899 (£610) when it goes on sale in February, the ThinkPad X1 tablet (pictured right) will be powered by an Intel Core m7 Processor and run Windows 10. It will provide up to 10 hours of battery life, although this can be extended with the device’s ‘Productivity Module’, which increases battery life to 15 hours total.

Among the other modules being offered at the ThinkPad X1’s launch are the Presenter Module, which includes a pico projector and HDMI port, and the 3D Imaging Module, which adds a rear-facing Intel RealSense camera – although all these add-ons (pictured in main image) do come at a price.

Power up

In addition to a new tablet, Lenovo also revealed a new version of its flexible Yoga device, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga (pictured left) featuring up to 1TB hard drive storage, ultra-fast connectivity to 4G LTE networks and a touch fingerprint reader

There’s also an optional Samsung OLED display if you need to make your screen extra-colourful, as well as an ‘active pen’ that is housed and charged within the system, and is the perfect tool for drawing, highlighting and writing notes directly on the screen.

Lastly, there is also the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (pictured right), a 14in ultrabook targeting business customers. Named by Lenovo as the world’s lightest device in this class, the X1 Carbon packs the same hardware as the X1 Yoga,

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga will be available from this month costing $1449 (£984), with the OLED models costing slightly more and only going on sale in April, and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon will be available starting February from $1299 (£880).

“Lenovo’s customer-centric engineering focus enables us to design and build products where end-user needs come first. The new X1 family demonstrates our relentless pursuit of innovation that elevates the products above the norm.” said Johnson Jia, senior vice president of Lenovo’s personal computing group.

“Optimising our products with unique features and for greater performance, better cloud access and class-leading security and durability will help customers use technology as their secret weapon.”
