Lenovo X1 Yoga overview

  • 1Description

The 14" ThinkPad X1 Yoga Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Laptop from Lenovo is a system whose screen can rotate up to 360° to vary between laptop, tent, stand, and tablet mode. That means you can select a specific mode based on what you need to do and combine it with the keyboard, TouchPad Pen Pro, and/or the 10-point multi-touch screen to help maximize your productivity.

The X1 Yoga is powered by a 6th-generation (Skylake) 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5-6300U Dual-Core processor and 8GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM, which allows it to run multiple applications simultaneously. Equipped with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 processor, the 14" multi-touch display supports touch functionality and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the Mini DisplayPort or HDMI port.

For long term storage of your files, the X1 Yoga has a 256GB Opal 2 SSD. While the SSD may not have as high a capacity as a traditional hard drive, it contains no moving parts and offers faster data transfer speeds. Additionally, because it has no moving parts, it is more resistant to damage from bumps and drops and does not have any read or write heads that wear down the drive during operation.

If you want to add external peripherals, the X1 Yoga offers three USB 3.0 ports. Network connectivity is achieved using 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 technology allows you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, dual array microphones, two stereo speakers, a microSD card reader, a fingerprint reader, and a backlit keyboard.

The X1 Yoga is powered using the included 65W AC adapter and a 4-cell/52Wh lithium-ion polymer battery, which will last for up to 10 hours before recharging is required. Also included is a ThinkPad Pen Pro, which has 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. The pen features onboard charging and provides you with a precise content-creation experience. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Features

Four Modes, One Device
Easily change between four modes – laptop, stand, tablet, and tent – based on what you want to do, and your system automatically switches system settings to match.
Backlit Multimode Keyboard
When your Yoga switches between modes, the keyboard frame automatically rises and the keys lock, eliminating accidental keystrokes and providing a more comfortable grip.
Security Features
You can rest assured knowing your data and hardware are safe, thanks to features such as TPM encryption, a fingerprint reader, and a Kensington lock.

Windows 10 Professional

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

    Lenovo X1 Yoga reviews

    14" ThinkPad X1 Yoga Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 191.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Amazing? ... um actually I wish it was, but no. Issues: Does not resume from sleep mode, it beeps 4 times pause x3. Flipping screen from tablet to laptop mode, display still thinks its in tablet mode. Battery says its going to last usually 6 hours instead of the advertised 9, with just internet browsing. I called tech support, all Bios and Drivers updated, not fixed. Will send into Lenovo Depot. With this price, Lenovo needs to do a better quality control of their products. This is my third X1, I've owned two non-yoga 2015 X1 prior to this purchase, I had to send both defective X1's back. I'm hoping they fix my expensive laptop.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Teething issues. To start I have to say I love thinkpad kit and this is probably my 5th x series thinkpad in a row. I went for a fully loaded X1 yoga with a onelink+z The device is stunning but has been marred by a couple of issues. 1) the onelink+ no longer works on Ethernet, when I plug the X1 in it sits on wireless and I can't for the life of me figure out why. 2) within a couple of weeks of purchase it developed a screen fault (funnily enough the same happened with my last x230), so I raised a ticket with Lenovo, to be told they don't have the spares, 3 weeks later I am still waiting. Fortunately it's a fault I can live with but I would expect Lenovo to have spares available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around amazing laptop You can tell a lot of thought and engineering has gone into this laptop. Its extremely lightweight, which is very helpful as a student going to and from class. Case feels solid; the lower half is some kind of alloy, but the top half holding the screen is just black plastic so not quite as durable. The 360deg screen rotation is great and makes it very versatile. Also love the built in wacom pen for photoshop/illustrator. Despite being so lightweight and slim, it is able to run demanding programs surprisingly well. (it can easily handle Photoshop, Illustrator, and large assemblies in SolidWorks)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get the OLED screen, it's a must have! I've only had the X1 Yoga for a week but it's quickly become one of my favorite laptops. For reference I work in a school and I specify which laptops to purchase in large quantities, so I've seen a lot of different laptops! Honestly, the computer itself is great (especially with a NVME SSD) but what made me purchase this is the OLED screen! Without seeing it for yourself in person you just cannot do it justice. The colors are so deep and when the screen is black, you can't even tell the computer is on. Since it's OLED there is no backlight, so no bleed anywhere. I really hope more computers come on the market with this screen technology as it is a big leap over a LCD!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in general but some minor problems I have been using this for about a month. I use it both as a regular laptop and as a tablet. As an ultarbook, the computing power is sufficient for my computation needs. I did limit myself to only do certain works on it. In the tablet mode I use it as a note taking device and the performance is OK. It can be better if the pen's writing experience is closer to a real pen. I think it will be better if the surface has a little bit more traction. The biggest problem of this machine is with the web browsing. The display for Firefox always has some problems especially when resizing the window and Internet Explorer hang frequently.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have the model with core i7, 16GB RAM, 2560 x 1440 res display. Battery life is very disappointing. Might be due to known issues with Windows 10 - hope Lenovo will have firmware/driver updates like Microsoft is pushing out to Surface products to improve battery performance. Display brightness could be better, and whites seem yellow tinged. Agree with other reviewer that Lenovo quality has gone downhill - the bottom left edge creaks and flexes when squeezed, for example, when lifting laptop up with left hand. Build quality is not that of a $2000 top of the line product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible, Durable, and Portable Coming from the original ThinkPad Yoga S1, the X1 Yoga is thinner and lighter with a much sleeker profile. The size is close enough to continue using the same laptop bag, yet the X1 packs a 14 inch screen. Upgrading the resolution to 2560x1440 was worth it for the beautifully smooth text and detailed images. I can split the screen between two editors and still see a reasonable amount of code when programming. The keyboard is excellent and the trackpad is much smoother and quieter than my previous Yoga. The pen and multiple modes give me the versatility to create and collaborate. The quality and finish are top notch, but what matters most is how much more I am able to get done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Computer for my clinic! I love my Thinkpad X230 but it's more than 3 years old and it's showing its age although it still works perfectly fine. I used my computer for work almost 24/7. I upgraded to Thinkpad X1 Yoga with Windows 10 Pro i7 processor, and it's just amazingly fast and responsive, the touchscreen with pen is just perfect, Bluetooth is very useful for dictation. I still can't decide if it's really a laptop or a tablet and either one does the job to my satisfaction. Its thin and light. It's worth the hefty price. Lenovo computers are indeed the leader for business computers!
