Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018-20LES01W00
State of the Art. Lenovo's new, classy (and expensive) convertible from the ThinkPad business series has amped up its hardware. Of course, one of the highlights is the HDR-capable Dolby Vision display, but the up-to-date port selection also puts the device in a great position. The manufacturer has made (almost) no mistakes - we only found one little point of criticism towards the end of the test.

The Lenovo X1 Yoga is the best laptop you can buy for typing. ThinkPad laptops' reputations for quality isn't like some folks' obsession with vinyl. There's no nostaglic retro ritual element here. The keyboard is just great.

Combining the power and functionality of the ThinkPad range with the versatility and flexibility of the Yoga family, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga offers an appealing proposition for business users, although it's let down by a disappointing battery life and some unfortunate thermal issues.

Taking the venerable ThinkPad X1 Carbon and adding a 360º hinge should result in one of the best convertible laptops that money can buy, but the transformation isn't quite so straightforward.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is meant for business users who want something more than a traditional laptop. It’s different modes are genuinely useful, but you’ll pay for that with extra weight.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga offers the same innovative design as previous Yoga products but with a significant performance upgrade. In our short experience with it, we found it fun to use with fast and responsive performance, but it did still feel a little too chunky compared to some of the other devices we've tested over the last week, especially for those wanting a portable machine.

CommentIntel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. 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.
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
