Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G4-20Y5000UUS
Source: PC Mag
If we hadn't just reviewed the latest Dell XPS 15 OLED, we'd be raving about the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 (starts at $1,639; $2,498 as tested). A brilliant OLED display was one of our favorite features of last year's X1 Extreme Gen 3. The new Lenovo swaps the familiar 15.6-inch diagonal and 16:9 aspect ratio for a 16-inch panel with a slightly taller 16:10 profile, but unlike with the 16:10 Dell, Lenovo doesn't offer an OLED version, just a choice of three IPS screens. That's disappointing in a premium laptop, but the X1 Extreme is still a sleek, loaded speedster that will tempt execs seeking a deluxe desktop replacement.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
