Lenovo Unveils New ThinkPad X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga Laptops: 8th Gen Core, Dolby Vision HDR

LAS VEGAS, NV — Lenovo today announced its 2018 models of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga notebooks. The new premium laptops from Lenovo received three noticeable upgrades this year: they have got quad-core 8th Generation Core i5/i7 CPUs, faster memory, as well as Dolby Vision HDR-supporting displays on premium models. Other new features include things like the optional ThinkShutter webcam cover, the Wake on Voice capability, Amazon Alexa voice assistant and some other.

The X1-branded products have always had a very special place in Lenovo’s product lineup. On the one hand, the X1 PCs are the top-of-the-range ThinkPad models that should support all the latest business features and offer decent performance in the thinnest and the lightest form-factor possible. On the other hand, the ThinkPad X1 is the flagship product for Lenovo, so they have to support all the latest and greatest technology in general and create the halo effect for the manufacturer. Obviously, integrating beefy technologies into ultra-thin laptops is a challenge, so Lenovo focused on different aspects of their designs in different iterations of their ThinkPad X1-branded products (rather than trying to improve everything at once). For example, the key features of last year’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Gen were its 14” display fir into a regular 13.3” chassis as well as a massive 15-hour battery life. Meanwhile, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen was all about refinements to design and performance of the first gen launched a year before.

This year’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Gen and ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen are not thinner or lighter than last year’s models. In fact, they have very similar chassis with their respective predecessors in general. When compared to 2017 models aesthetically, the new units feature blacked out logotypes, black hinges (X1C only), ThinkShutter cover (select SKUs), a slightly different placement of TB3 and Ethernet ports on the X1C as well as fewer USB-A headers on the X1Y.

Meanwhile, refinements of the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga are all about higher performance due to Intel’s quad-core 8th Generation Core i5/i7 CPUs
