Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet 2017, Core i7-7Y75

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet does best when viewed as a premium tablet designed for business. It can, of course, be used in the home, but there we suspect its drab all-black exterior might make it less attractive next to designer competition like the Huawei MateBook. For business, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet offers top-notch features, such as Intel vPro support, a Wacom digitizer in its excellent 12-inch screen, available WWAN 4G, and a wide variety of hardware configurations. Its keyboard, included in our review unit’s $1,499 price, continues to be one of our favorite detachable tablet keyboards.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet is a capable and well-made business 2-in-1. The detachable design boasts excellent construction and a superb keyboard, and the tablet performed fairly well in most performance tests. But although the 2016 model stood out as one of the best business 2-in-1s to hit the market, the newer model doesn't feel like an improvement.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
7Y75: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.3-3.6 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
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, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.
70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
