88.4% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 (Core i5-8250U, FHD) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Best of both worlds. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a sleek 2-in-1 for business professionals. While the top of the line configuration is an excellent machine, this mid-tier model may be the best solution for most users in need of a well-styled hybrid business device.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen Review (2018): Full-Featured Convertible
Source: Hot Hardware English
At $1673 the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is by no means an inexpensive 2-in-1 ultrabook, but it delivers in terms of flexibility, horsepower, build quality and security. If you're in the market for a new ultrabook, the Lenovo X1 Yoga (Gen 3) should probably be on your short list.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen review: A speedy, premium 2-in-1 with a lofty price tag
Source: PC World English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is pricey compared to its peers, and its tough-to-access memory card slot sticks out like a sore thumb. Still, this new ThinkPad has a rugged design, speedy performance, impressive battery life and an array of high-end features, like its webcam shutter and retractable keys. If you can get over its lofty price tag—or perhaps, even better, wait for a price cut—the ThinkPad X1 makes for one of the stronger 8th-generation 2-in-1s we’ve seen yet.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga review: Powerhouse in a modern avatar
Source: Gadgets Now English
The overall essence ThinkPad X1 Yoga gives us is that of a business-focused laptop with a pinch of flexibility, exactly what the young, business enthusiasts need these days. It has the power and it has the stealthy look that is new yet familiar with the rest of the ThinkPad line up. At Rs 1,12,000 it sure will make you think twice before investing, but given the overall package, it could have been a steal if it was for under Rs 1 lakh. Convertible market is already heating up at a good pace and Lenovo has a big role to play in it. Although this new ThinkPad X1 Yoga is one of the most powerful 2-in-1 laptops out there, the question is, will it be able to hold the title for long?

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.
