Less expensive… but still expensive. Today’s ThinkPad X1 Yoga configuration preserves most of the major plusses of our previous review unit while dropping the price nearly in half. Is this the true sweet spot in the convertible PC market?

91% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 review: The X1 Yoga 2016 with better perks
Source: Techaeris English version
It’s been a good while since I’ve done a laptop review from Lenovo and getting back to it with the Yoga X1 2017 was worth it. I like the design and wish other Lenovo units came like this, the screen was perfect and the 360 rotation going from laptop to tablet is neat. I know it’s nothing new, but I’ve always liked that ability. Even the folding keys are pretty sweet. All in all, definitely go for this product if you have the funds and really want something high end, but if not you can find something different, Lenovo has products at multiple price points for you to look at.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a versatile two-in-one that earns its expensive price tag by excelling in most areas to provide one of the most well-rounded convertibles on the market. It is the mashup between two of Lenovo’s laptop brands: the reliable ThinkPad and the versatile Yoga. Measuring 13.1 x 9 x 0.67-inches and weighing 3.2 pounds the 14-inch convertible is incredibly light for a 14-inch laptop. However, as a tablet, the device can feel a bit unwieldy especially when trying to hold the X1 Yoga with a single hand. In addition to being light, the carbon fiber also affords excellent durability. ThinkPads are typically known for their tough chassis and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is no different. The notebook boasts extensive MIL-STD testing holding up under extreme temperatures, shocks, and vibrations.  The carbon fiber build offers a great cushy feel that is resistant to fingerprints and easy to grip. The surface also makes for an excellent wrist rest, to help ease those long typing sessions. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga features that same simple clean design with the top of the display lid sharply slanting in towards notebook’s base to give it a sharp cutting look.  The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is equipped with a seventh-generation 2.6GHz Intel Core i5-7300U CPU, Intel HD Graphics 620, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD.

Basic computing, productivity apps, and even heavy multitasking prove to be a breeze for this machine. The fast read and write speeds of the 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD also contribute to the solid consistent performance as programs and file load within seconds. The X1 Yoga is capable of basic HD video editing and playing less demanding game titles, but the machine will struggle with more demanding tasks like 3D modeling, and more graphically intense games. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga features a 14-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS 10-point multi-touch display. The glossy panel offers a clear picture with vivid deep colors. While the glossy panel does provide gorgeous colors it’s also highly reflective. This is particularly a big problem when using the device as a tablet with overhead lighting. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga packs a surprising amount of connectivity into its thin frame. The right side features a Kensington lock slot, an HDMI connector, a USB 3.0 port, a Mini-RJ45 Ethernet connector, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The left side features two USB Type-C (Thunderbolt) ports, and two additional USB 3.0 ports, the latter of which is always on. Finally, there is a micro SIM and microSD card reader located next to the back right display hinge on the rear. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a direct competition for the Microsoft surface pro in terms of its price. In terms of specs, they also come very close but the ThinkkPad X1 Yoga is probably more reliable than the Surface Pro.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i5-7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.

86.6%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
