80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2
Source: PC Mag English
Lenovo freshens its 15.6-inch status-symbol ThinkPad X1 Extreme with new CPU choices, along with faster (if not blazing) graphics and gorgeous displays. But it faces a fierce fight from two refreshed icons: Apple's MacBook Pro and Dell's XPS 15.

Lenovo's X1 Extreme Gen 2 is a meaningful upgrade over the Gen 1 due to its GPU and many minor improvements. With excellent build quality, upgradability, and looks, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more compelling overall package in the ultraportable professional notebook space.

Series:

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is the consumer version of the ThinkPad P1 workstation. From multi-monitor support to a rich MR/VR experience and even to intensive gaming, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme handles demanding computing tasks without a hitch. Lenovo is not breaking with tradition with the X1 Extreme, either. The laptop’s body is made of carbon fibre with a sturdy feel to it, and ports are easy to access on either side. The trusty ThinkPad keyboard and pointing stick make a return as well, opposite a 15.6” display that can either be configured as a non-touch Full-HD screen or a touch-enabled 4K IPS display with HDR and Dolby Vision, as well as support for a stylus with tilt function and shading. Users can opt for either an 8th-gen Coffee Lake Core i5 or i7 processor to start with, and up to 64 GB of DDR4 at 2666 MHz, Dual DIMM RAM. Then there is the storage, which comes in the form of up to 2 TB that can be configured via dual M.2 PCI Express NVMe SSDs with RAID support. That is a huge amount of blazing-fast storage to play around with, making it easy to work on large and complex files in most programs. The graphics department is where the X1 Extreme might seem to fall short. In theory, with a GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU, it will match the performance of the XPS and the EliteBook, but it cannot compete with the full-voltage 1050 Ti chip inside the Zenbook Pros.

Lenovo is using a tiny (and light) power brick alongside an 80Whr battery in the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and the battery should charge up to 80 per cent in just an hour thanks to Lenovo’s RapidCharge tech. There is even a fingerprint reader at the side of the keyboard and a Windows Hello camera that can be covered with the ThinkShutter camera cover. Windows 10 Pro is pre-installed, so a user will be able to use the built-in camera to log into the operating system with just their face. For connectivity, a user has got two USB-3.0 ports and an SD-card reader on the right side, which is great for quickly connecting an external storage device or to copy content directly from an SD card. On the opposite side sit two Thunderbolt ports, full-sized HDMI, a network extension port, and a headphone jack. The Thunderbolt and HDMI ports mean that a user can have up to three external monitors connected to the X1 Extreme, which makes it perfect for video editing or working on complex programs that need more screen space. It’s plug-and-play-ready for the leading VR/MR headsets, including Oculus Rift. Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Extreme really does pack plenty of power into a ridiculously slim and lightweight body. For users who are in the market for an on-the-go powerhouse that can also scratch the occasional gaming itch, the X1 Extreme is a great choice.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


86.4%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
