Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018-20LES01W00

89.3% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 (i7-8550U, HDR WQHD) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
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.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga review: The best keyboard in a convertible laptop
Source: Pocket Lint English version
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.

Source: It Pro English version
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.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (3rd Gen)
Source: Hexus English version
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.

84% ThinkPad X1 Yoga review (2018): Flexibility comes at a cost
Source: Engadget English version
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.

Hands-on review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (2018)
Source: English version
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.

Intel 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.

i5-8550U: 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.


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.

83.83%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
