Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga: Ultrathin 3:2 convertible hits US market
Fulfilling the promised January 2021 availability in the USA, Lenovo has made the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga orderable on its US site yesterday.
The new high-end Lenovo laptop was announced around the virtual CES 2021. It is both the thinnest ThinkPad laptop and the thinnest Yoga convertible at the same time, while also being the first ThinkPad Yoga with a screen in the taller 3:2 aspect ratio. Being a Yoga convertible, it has a touchscreen, is compatible with a digitizer pen and it can be converted into a tablet PC.
To make the tablet mode more comfortable to use, Lenovo has built the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga to be way thinner and lighter than the existing regular ThinkPad X1 Yoga. In order to enable the thinner and lighter design, the new model uses a titanium A cover / screen cover. The slim profile also means that it only has two Thunderbolt 4 ports and a smaller battery.
Orderable on in the Lenovo US store are three fixed configurations of the ThinkPad laptop. The base model contains 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD as well as the Intel Core i5-1130G7. The two more expensive versions both have 16 GB RAM - the second most expensive model has the vPro CPU i5-1140G7 and a 512 GB drive, while the top of the line config boasts the i7-1160G7 and a 1 TB SSD.
Early adopters need to be prepared to pay a lot: With a base price of roughly §2,910, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Gen 1 currently far exceeds the promised starting price of $1,899. This is not uncommon for Lenovo, however: The ThinkPad X1 Nano also started out more expensive when compared with the announced base price. Two months later, its price has dropped by around $400. So waiting a little longer may be worth it as far as the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is concerned.
