Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 20JES03T00

88% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 (Core i7, OLED) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Premium convertible. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga is clearly in a league of its own - at least as far as the price is concerned. The convertible features high-end components and a very good OLED panel. How the top-of-the-line version of the X1 Yoga with Intel Core i7 CPU compares to its competitors is the subject of our comprehensive review.
Update: Battery runtime and measurements of the WQHD-IPS panel added.
80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga OLED (2017) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
We already know that the Lenovo X1 Yoga is a great machine, so the better question is: are the upgrades worth the price hike? Well, that really depends on what you want. There are only a handful of OLED convertibles on the market and the X1 is one of the most feature rich out there with an excellent built-in stylus, security measures, unbelievable connectivity, and a world-class keyboard. The notebook could certainly be a great fit for artists or media junkies that want a convertible with some oomph. NBR, in particular, can see this device being a great fit for corporate art departments with a great balance between utility, dependability, and security.

95% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga OLED review: Possibly the perfect laptop
Source: Neowin English
It's really just so hard to think of anything to complain about with the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. It's really just a wonderful machine, and having used the 1080p model and knowing the benefits of OLED, it still exceeded my expectations. Perhaps, we can focus on the lack of a facial recognition camera and the price as subjects to complain about.

Series:

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. » 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.  
7600U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.8 to 3.9 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process. Integrates a HD Graphics 620 clocked at 300 - 1150 MHz and is manufactured in an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

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, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. 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.


87.67%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
