Just before the CES 2020, Lenovo is pimping up its flagship X1 laptop. The tech company’s last update on it ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga was in August 2019, so there isn’t much serious addition this time.
The updated version of the laptops features Intel’s latest 10th-generation “Ice Lake” processors and up to 16GB of RAM, which is similar to the ones of last generation models.
The major addition is that users can now configure both laptops with as much as 2TB of internal storage, up from the 1TB max in last year’s models. Lenovo also worked on their keyboards, adding function keys that will allow users to start and end voice-over-IP calls.
The best feature we spotted is that you can customize both models to include a new 500-nit, 1080p display that shows Lonovo’s PrivacyGuard technology. Exactly like the Sure View displays that HP has offered for a couple of years. The screens will make it impossible for people to peep into your work.
Initially, Lenovo offered a PrivacyGuard display as an option on its expensive ThinkPads like the T480s. Right now, it’s coming to the consumer-friendly X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga. At 500 nits, the display is also very sharp like the company’s former-generation PrivacyGuard screen.
Apart from those features, both laptops are the same thing as their predecessors. Lenovo said the battery will stay alive for approximately 18.5 hours on the X1 Carbon and 15 hours on the X1 Yoga.
Although, the two new models weigh as much as they did before. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon coming in at 2.4 pounds and the X1 Yoga at 2.9 pounds. We’re certain that both laptops from Lonovo will be available to the market anytime from now, but the company didn’t say specifically when.
A leak shows that the X1 Carbon’s price will start from $1,499, while the X1 Yoga will start from $1,599 upwards.
