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.
