In review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 with CNC aluminum case
For three years, Lenovo has been selling the ThinkPad X1 Yoga with practically the same design. The convertible cousin of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon was introduced in 2016 and apart from some minor alterations, Lenovo kept the same design from ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 1 to ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3.
This design stagnation ends with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4, the newest model which Lenovo already introduced in January at CES 2019. This model introduces a completely new design and like the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7, we are reviewing the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 at the moment.
Our review unit sports an Intel Core i7-8565U, 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD and the Low Power FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS 14 inch screen option, which has a screen brightness of 400 cd/m². These components are crammed inside a slimmer and more compact frame compared with the preceding model. Unlike the X1 Yoga Gen 3, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga utilizes CNC machined aluminum for the majority of its chassis parts, which is totally different from any other Lenovo ThinkPad laptop on the market.
Interested readers can expect a review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 within the next two weeks.
