Model: The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is a direct delineation from the critically acclaimed Lenovo ThinkPad series whereby this specific lineup of laptop models has particularly garnered much positive reception from many users of various walks of life. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is distinguished in its own when compared to its family line by sharing its namesake qualities through the feature of a 360 degree hinge. Apart from that, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is also designed with a specific vision in mind. It is targeted towards a very specific demography which will undoubtedly be able to tap into the full potential of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 should the device be explored properly.
First and foremost, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 differs in terms of design among all the ThinkPad models that came before this particular model. It does not need to take the keenest or sharpest eyes to point out that the case color of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is inherently lighter in shade and hue than the conventional black color in the brand’s series long-running line. The dark gray color is a nice and refreshing change to see. It is mostly attributed to the materials which are used in the construction of the laptop model itself. Instead of the combination of magnesium and carbon-fiber plastic, the usage of aluminum in the construction of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is thoroughly capitalized in order to create a brand new look for its users.
Aside from a quirky move-away in terms of choice of colors, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019’s main selling point is its technical nature as a convertible. The integration of a 360 degree hinge enables the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 to assume a multitude of positions in accordance to the user’s level of comfort. The aluminum material used in the construction of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 complements the 360 degree hinge feature very well. Being a convertible in itself, the inclusion of a digitizer pen or stylus is essential. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 houses a silo in which the digitizer pen can be slotted in. This is a rather convenient and practical solution as to where the digitizer pen should be stored once it has been used to accomplish a task at hand. Not only that, the digitizer pen is rechargeable and can be conveniently done so when it is placed within the silo.

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.
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.
i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
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 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.
87.3%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
