Lenovo X1 overview

  • 1Description
Found in: Work Laptops

The 13" ThinkPad X1 512GB Tablet from Lenovo is designed to give you the power, productivity, and portability you want for on-the-go use. By itself, it's a versatile device that you can write and draw on, but once you attach the keyboard, it transforms into a laptop for business. Specs-wise, it's built with a 1.9 GHz Intel Core i7-8650U quad-core processor, 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD. Thanks to its solid-state drive, it can boot and load applications quickly, saving your precious time for other tasks.

Its 13" display, driven by integrated Intel UHD graphics, features a 3000 x 2000 resolution and is built on an IPS panel for vivid colors and wide viewing angles. Moreover, there are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which supports DisplayPort video connections, so you can connect it to an external display for larger viewing and enhanced multitasking. Other integrated features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, front and rear webcams, a microphone, speakers, and a combo mic/headphone jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro.

The X1 Tablet is thin and lightweight, and features a built-in stand with two convenient angles that you can use for better viewing angles when typing. Moreover ThinkPad X1 tablets have been tested against 12 military-grade requirements and plenty of quality checks to ensure their durability.
A keyboard and stylus are included with the ThinkPad X1 tablet, allowing you to use it as a traditional laptop as well as a canvas for drawing and taking notes.
Front & Rear Cameras
Equipped with front and rear cameras, you can use the ThinkPad X1 tablet for video conferencing as well as taking pictures of whatever inspires you in your surroundings.
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet is equipped with FIDO (Fast Identity Online) authentication capabilities, which protects your info with three layers of security. It includes your online credentials, such as your login and passwords, as well as payments via PayPal, Visa, and more.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10

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 Notebook, 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 of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business 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 reviews

    13" ThinkPad X1 512GB Tablet (3rd Gen) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PC Ran into problem when keyboard is detached! I had used X1 tablet 1st generation, and recently changed to the 3rd generation. At first glance, it seems great compared to the previous version (large screen and keyboard, etc). I however noted that when I detach the keyboard, the PC sometimes ran into problem showing a blue screen!! This is really a shame given that this is the latest version and mine is the top model. I also found that although the batter life is obviously longer than the 1st gen, it lasts about 4 hours under web surfing. The system error which occurs when keyboard is detached must be fixed soon.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falls way short again. I have used for two days and very dissapointed. The keyboard is not as good as the first and second gen X1 tablet. It seems like less travel and sticky. The display is certainly better but the lack of a USB port is a problem. The battery life is way off. They claim 10 hours and the most I am getting is 3. The full Core I processor provides plenty of power but drains the battery. The Pro Pen did not come with my system like it lists on the Lenovo website. They will have to send every customer the right pen as they must not be manufactured yet. Everyone will need to complain in order to guarantee that Lenovo follows through. I was burned on the first two X1 Tablets by Lenovo and will decide in the next day if this one is worth the $2300 I paid for it. The keyboard has stopped working several times and I had to remove and reconnect it. This is the problem that the first two tablets had and one of the reasons why Lenovo scrapped them. They are worth less than paper weights.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good combination of everything Bought it as I have been seeking a solid Surface form factor product with full Thunderbolt support. This actually turns out to be the only choice for the moment and it lives up to my expectation. The thermal control has room for further improvement though. After upgraded to 1803 I noticed occasional freezes that requires to close the lid (keyboard cover) and reopen to resolve. Seems related to software rather than hardware, but is worth investigating. Besides, battery life is rather mediocre. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features but could use a few adjustments I just received my ThinkPad Gen X 1 and I do like it what I don't enjoy about it is that it has no compatibility with Androids when it comes to apps and the shipping is very slow I had to wait a month after I ordered it to get it. I also don't like the view that is on the tablet as it has icons on the screen that you cannot get rid of, I think that should be an optional feature. The battery life is alright but I definitely don't get the 10 hours that the reviews say you get. But in general it is very useful for what I'm using it for and is a really good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tablets have come a long way. Works w razer core I bought a surface pro I7 initially, but returned it when I learned about this device. For a little more money you have an 8th gen 4 core i7 (surface has 7th gen 2 core). You get the keyboard and pen (although the surface pen is 3x better, the x1 keyboard is better than the surface) included. You also get thunderbolt 3. So I previously had a I7-7700k desktop with a gtx 1080ti to play games on my Alienware 34 monitor. If you do any kind of gaming once you go past 60hz screens you never want to go back. But I wanted a single device I could take with me during the day and plug back in when I got home. The only options were ultrabooks except maybe the asus transformer. This generation bumped the CPU from an anemic 4.5W power cpu last generation to an appropriate 15W cpu (desktop cpus are usually 90w for comparison). This computer is almost as fast as my desktop which had 32gb memory. The only thing is the cpu is less powered and there is some thermal throttling as expected, but I do not notice it in any modern games. I have overwatch at 165fps on max settings. I changed my monitor to an acer predator 271hu since Ultrawide is not ideal for first person shooters. I initially bought an gigabyte aorus gaming box with a mini 1080 and it worked fine except the USB ports on the gaming box didn’t work consistently with my peripherals (a known issue on all egpus). The Razer Core v2 is the only one at the time of this writing with 2 tb3 controllers to fix the usb issues. I put an evga gtx 1080ti ftw3 in it and use Corsair peripherals and a steelseries headset. All work great once razer synapse 2 is installed and drivers updated. Of note since you do not have regular usb A ports u need an adapter. I would try to get a wireless mouse that has Bluetooth option. (I use a Corsair dark core since it can be Bluetooth or plugged in or 2.4 ghz for gaming) Also, the distance between the tb3 ports is wider than a MacBook Pro so all of the amazon adapters for mbp with 2 male plugs will not fit. Overall I love this device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best windows tablet on the market I have been using this tablet for a month and I'd like to say that it exceeded my expectation. Pros: Great build quality, great screen, great keyboard, great writing experience, user-replaceable hard drive and battery (needs to open the back cover), good performance as a thin tablet, LTE option, fast fingerprint reader. Cons: Wide screen bezel, bad sound quality, relatively small battery. Battery life is OK after undervolting but should be better. Overall very happy with the purchase.
    Date published: 2018-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tablet I bought this to help me do my wireless surveys, which can be quite compute intensive. I was using a dual-core i7 6500U Miix 510 tablet with 8GB RAM. The X1's quad-core i7 and 16GB of RAM slay the Miix's performance. Another major win over the Miix 510 is the keyboard. It's much nicer (more travel, full size shift key, better construction) and the trackpoint makes a huge difference when working on the go. Bluetooth, for when I choose to use a mouse, works much better on the X1 as well. The X1 tablet's display is gorgeous, the device looks amazing, and the performance is exceptional. If I didn't have a TP25 on my desk, I wouldn't think twice about making the X1 tablet my daily driver. It's already a tough call. The only potential downside is the location of the thunderbolt 3 ports. Perfect while on the go, they may create a bit of an eyesore if docking this machine and using external monitor, etc... Imagine a cable attached to the top left of your laptop display as your docking/monitor cable. That's the only odd thing I can describe about the tablet. Not at all a deal breaker for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing portable machine and performance! I've been using for a little more than a week and summarized below PROS: - Great performance, it's really fast (i7vPro, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD)! - Extremely quiet fan and doesn't get hot! Never saw something like in any computer while doing heavy work or playing Age of Empires III (high set.) / Civ6 (low set.) (just the upper right edge gets warm where the processor is located). GREAT job! - Versatile, easy to carry and take notes (just like a notebook)! - The keyboard is just GREAT! - Lenovo Vantage software to update drivers and other configurations is easy and GREAT! CONS: - As reported by other people, the only problem I found is the battery :( (around 3h normal use like 10 tabs in Chrome + 10 apps working simultaneously). I consider buying an external powerbank to charge it on the go during busy days (I do carry the 65W USB-C wth charger me).
