Once inside, the M. Since the tablet is passively-cooled, there are no fans to clean or replace and, in fact, no mechanical parts at all. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet comes with a 1-year standard depot warranty. Hardly anything if anything at all has changed in terms of the X1 Type Cover design. Our impressions of the keyboard from last year also still apply. In summation, although the key travel is short, actuation force and feedback are well-tuned, and key spacing will be immediately comfortable to ThinkPad regulars—apart from some slight compression along the bottom-right side near the arrow keys.
The keyboard is also backlit. Microsoft Precision Touchpad certification also ensures quick, seamless, and consistent future driver updates via Windows Update. There even exists a TrackPoint with separate physical buttons for those married to the interface. Not much needs to be said about the touchscreen; the Gorilla Glass 4 covering will be familiar to anyone with a modern smartphone, and the input is as responsive an accurate as one might expect. As with all tablets, the screen features a high-gloss finish.
Our measurements reveal that the brightness and contrast have improved over that of the predecessor, however: we recorded This is thanks to a black level of 0. Finally, the Total Gamma reading of 2. The display backlight flickers at There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting. The frequency of If PWM was detected, an average of minimum: 5 - maximum: Hz was measured.
Outdoors, the device is certainly usable in the shade given strategic placement to help mitigate reflective obstructions. Needless to say, viewing angles thanks to the IPS panel are excellent. Bear in mind that, unlike the SSD, the RAM cannot be upgraded later, so be sure to choose a configuration sufficient to meet your needs.
The least expensive ThinkPad X1 Tablet configuration ships with an Intel Core mY30 SoC , which is still very likely sufficient for most users; however, processor options extend all the way to the dual-core Core iY It features clock rates ranging from 1. Performance is comparable in most cases to the ThinkPad X1 Tablet we reviewed last year , though that unit was equipped with the top-end m7 now designated by the i7 instead.
In some instances the m7 model yields superior performance, probably due to better sustained clock rates. As for the rest of the field, 15 W TDP processors unsurprisingly trump the 4. However, even after the very first run we witness a drop from to points, so while the worst-case real-world sustained performance is still pretty impressive for a 4.
Storage options range from a GB M. A couple of final notes in this section: as is often the case, to achieve these scores, we manually loaded the Samsung NVMe driver listed here. We should also point out once again that, unlike most other tablets, the M. Neither of these clock rates is near the maximum supported by the SoC, but likewise, neither is anywhere near the base clock rate, either.
That means that throttling is not an issue even under synthetic stress of the machine when CPU or GPU are stressed independently of one another. The X1 Tablet is passively-cooled, and as such, is completely silent. Moreover, we could detect no intrusive coil whine or electrical noise from the device during operation. Chipset efficiency coming from the Skylake m7 to the Kaby Lake i5 is obviously the big winner here, and as a result, the X1 Tablet is now entirely comfortable in the hand in most normal situations.
After cooling down, the stand once again returns to its normal full extension position, flush with the surface. This is purely cosmetic as it was difficult to notice any difference based on feel alone. Volume is at least acceptable at Frequency Comparison Checkbox selectable! Our real-world wi-fi websurfing benchmark produced a result of 7 hours and 21 minutes, which is quite good overall. We should mention, however, that this particular benchmark was in need of babysitting thanks to Microsoft Edge spontaneously refusing to load some of the pages involved.
You can see this depicted in our attached graph below, where the slight humps a reduction in slope indicate a lower power consumption for short periods of time. Meanwhile, surface temperatures and battery life are now both acceptable or even good depending on how you plan to use the device.
Elsewhere, the display panel has also seen some reasonable improvements, most notably in the realm of brightness and contrast which were our biggest complaints from last year. Besides this, conventional convertibles are trending ever more portable, diminishing the advantage that the detachable keyboard case tablet design has long held over them in the realm of size and weight.
A year has passed, but the ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen 2 has only made marginal improvements over its predecessor. Regardless, however, it still remains one of just a few options which fuses the benefits of a high-end business machine with the versatility of a tablet.
However, for the time being, the price gap and the general lack of other options still afford the X1 the luxury of exclusivity. For business users on the go, it is one of just a few options which fuses both the maintainability, durability, and easy management of a high-end business machine with the versatility of a tablet with detachable keyboard base. For the right user and for the right purpose, even in spite of its evolutionary, unexciting strategy, it still makes sense.
A year later, the latest version has seen little more than a chipset refresh with a few component updates. Is that enough to remain competitive? Intel Core iY54 2 x 1. Webcam: Front: 2. Speakers: 2.

After all, these two aspects make up the majority of a notebook PC's human-computer interface.
As we've noted in the past, Lenovo has some of the best laptop keyboards in the business, at least in terms of usability and feel. And when you couple a inch OLED Organic LED display with one of the best laptop keyboard designs on the market, you're definitely starting with a winning combination. This marks only the second coming of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, actually, and the first generation was well-received about this time last year.
Though this new machine was released just prior to Intel's 8th Gen Kaby Lake refresh, it is now powered by an Intel 7th Gen Kaby Lake processor and sports some other solid upgrades in materials and features. Also, in exchange for just a touch more weight -- 2. And as you'll see in our testing on the pages ahead, it makes a difference. The other notable update is Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, two ports in total, and even the power adapter now has been updated with a USB-C connector type interface for charging over one of those ports.
However, perhaps the most visible difference is when you compare the two keyboard areas side-by-side. The new ThinkPad Yoga X1 Gen 2 on the right now employs as slightly more flat matte finish on the machine. The good news is, that carbon fiber-polymeric hybrid on the top and magnesium-poly hybrid on the bottom, now resist fingerprints much better than the previous gen X1 Yoga.
The three button TrackPad has also been updated with a slightly lower profile and smoother lines. The previous gen machine's "Lift And Lock" mechanism required a keyboard plate to lift up and lock the keys into place. The bottom line is this simpler mechanic improves durability and offers a cleaner aesthetic for the machine around the keyboard area with no protruding parts, once locked into place, and a contiguous typing deck design made of Lenovo's classic hybrid Carbon Fiber construction.
