Lenovo Announces Thinnest ThinkPad Ever, New Models Powered By 11th Gen Intel Core vPro CPUs
Four New ThinkPads Round Out Lenovo’s X1 Portfolio
While certain editors opine the virtues of thicker machines with more I/O, a taller 3:2 aspect ratio display is certainly a tempting feature of yet another ultra-thin laptop design. But this isn’t just any laptop, it’s the thinnest ThinkPad yet.
ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga
“Lenovo is thrilled to unveil our thinnest ThinkPad ever, ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga. Covered in titanium material, it’s just over 11mm thin and features a gorgeous 3:2 ratio 13.5-inch low power display along with Dolby Vision HDR support and Dolby Atmos Speaker System.”
This thinnest of ThinkPads is offered with up to an 11th Gen Core i7 vPro processor (specific SKUs not listed) with Iris Xe Graphics, up to 16GB of LPDDR4x, up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage, and up to a 44.5Whr battery. The display offers 2256×1504 resolution with 450 nit brightness.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and X1 Yoga Gen 6
Lenovo is announcing more laptops with taller aspect ratio displays today, this time a pair of 14-inch 16:10 models:
