The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium is an excellent addition that adds two essential features to the X-Series. First, the 3:2 display introduces massive changes in daily comfort and productivity, which is the prime reason for choosing this laptop. Virtually anyone will benefit from this, and frankly, I’m not sure why we don’t see more of these 3:2 laptops on the market, and the X1 Titanium is one of the most exciting. Secondly, the tablet mode (360-degree clamshell mode) is impeccable and the best I’ve seen to date in this size category. The thinness of the design makes a big difference in that mode and helps writing with the e-Pen as well. As we’ve seen, the performance and battery life are outstanding, and in line with what we would expect from a laptop like this. I highly recommend considering the X1 Titanium when shopping for a work laptop.

All in all, the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is an interesting bet. It’s clear that Lenovo has an eye on the traits that modern business users have been asking for: stylus support, the 3:2 aspect ratio, durability, and portability, in addition to the security of the vPro platform. The Titanium Yoga is the first iteration of a line that I’m very excited to see Lenovo making, and for that I think it deserves a high score. With that said, I won’t pretend it’s the most practical purchase out there. It’s a first-generation product, and — as is often the case with first-generation products — there are some kinks to be worked out. The limited ports, the finicky touchpad, the shaky hinge, and the thin audio could all be overlooked on their own, especially as understandable sacrifices for the portable build — but they’re a lot to stomach as a package. But the Titanium Yoga is still quite an achievement, and I can’t wait for the next one. If Lenovo works out the kinks, it’ll be a spectacular product.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is a study in compromise. At a scant 0.45 inches thick it's the thinnest member of the ThinkPad family, but it’s also pricey, sacrifices ports, and lacks the staying power you'll find in marginally beefier machines. But maybe that's okay: the bright, 13.5-inch 2K display and sleek, ultraportable chassis makes it a strong contender for meeting your business-machine needs. It doesn't come cheap, though. If you can't find a good discount, this laptop can cost you over $2,000. And the X1 Titanium Yoga is stacked up against competitors that can offer just as much (and usually more), for less.

On paper, the X1 Titanium Yoga seems like a slam dunk: a thin yet super-durable machine with all the latest tech packed inside and out. The titanium chassis really is the perfect marriage of thinness and durability, and the 2-in-1 form factor works well when you want something portable. Like other super-compact ThinkPads, there are sacrifices made for that small size, like the keyboard and port selection, and they can make it hard to stomach the extra cost of the ThinkPad brand.

As I said before, the Titanium is a ThinkPad for the most part but in its pursuit of more casual features it differentiates itself from its cousins in ways that feel excessively premium. The reduced weight is appreciated but at the sacrifice of a familiar typing experience, quicker throttling of the CPU, tiny audio (the drivers are limited in space presenting a tinny auditory experience), and flex in the chassis, the X1's tradeoffs feel better suited for a highly productive executive than a content creator, coder, or process professional.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium is the company's thinnest ThinkPad to date and packs a decent amount of power hitched to a gorgeous display and lightweight but durable build. The innovation is costly though, and even entry-level models might price some people out.

The ThinkPad X1 Titanium is another excellent addition to Lenovo’s X1 lineup, joining its sibling the ThinkPad X1 Nano and ThinkPad X1 Carbon, but bringing some unique qualities to the table with its 3:2 aspect ratio and rugged yet thin titanium build.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
