Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 - disassembly and upgrade options

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 review: A great 2-in-1 for business pros
Source: PC World English
I like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7. A lot. I’ve personally purchased ThinkPads for most of my life, and the X1 Yoga Gen 7 underscores the reasons for my preference. It has a handsome, durable exterior, a great keyboard, offers the unique TrackPoint impact, and delivers on connectivity and battery life. It’s great for working long hours yet portable enough for travel. The X1 Yoga is also more expensive than the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio which, though now a generation behind on processor performance, provides a more compelling 2-in-1 experience. Lenovo’s premium ThinkPads target very specific customers with a willingness to pay for exactly what they want. If that’s you (or your boss is willing to foot the bill), awesome. But most people would be better off buying the Yoga 9i and pocketing the savings.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The ThinkPad brand is deservedly famous for top-notch design and quality, and the X1 Yoga Gen 7 is fully worthy of the name. It's a temptingly compact yet capable corporate 2-in-1 laptop that rates half a star below its civilian sibling, the Yoga 9i, simply because of its price premium. Yes, it has a nicer keyboard and MIL-STD 810H sturdiness, but our test unit isn't even a vPro configuration and lacks the high-res OLED display. Traveling execs will be delighted with it, but it doesn't come cheap.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 review: 7th time’s a charm?
Source: Digital Trends English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 is a solid business 2-in-1 choice, offering a vPro CPU option for enhanced management and security and a host of other features that are of interest to security- and privacy-minded businesspeople. And you can choose unique service offerings that businesses will appreciate. But how does it compete as a mainstream 14-inch convertible 2-in-1? It suffers from some thermal issues that hold back its high-end performance, but it has superior battery life, strong connectivity, and a nice low-power Full HD+ IPS display for users who don’t need OLED or higher resolutions. It’s also quite expensive, which will likely hold it back against some solid competition.

Model:

The latest to join the Lenovo ThinkPad series is none other than the Lenovo ThinkPad x1 yoga gen 7. From the name itself, it is quite evident that this model is part Lenovo ThinkPad and part Lenovo Yoga, but the styling and tough build lean more toward the former. While there is the same 360-degree hinge found on Lenovo Yoga 2-in-1s, the modern, thin-and-light build in a dark grey gives a more fun look than the more traditional ThinkPad black. However, the density and tough feel of the aluminium chassis combined with the deep keyboard, advanced trackpad, and famous red rubber nub, do scream ThinkPad though. In terms of its connectivity, the left side of the device has two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, a single USB-A port, and HDMI 2.0b. On the other hand, the right side accommodates a 3.5 mm jack and another USB-A jack. As far as its keyboard is concerned, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga does not necessarily blow cheaper thin-and-lights with similar specs out of the water when it comes to productivity performance, but rather, it is on a superior level when it comes to input, and that went a long way for daily use, like writing articles, surfing the web, or quickly marking an image.

Overall, the chiclet keyboard on the 2-in-1 is exemplary and easily accommodated the extreme amount of typing works. Comfy dishes would definitely hug the fingertips, and the keys required a noticeable amount of travel, 1.5 mm, to actuate, ensuring the scissor switches never felt mushy or flat but, rather, tactile. However, it is worth noting that the ThinkPad design that swaps the Fn and Ctrl keys from their expected locations is obviously annoying for any Windows users. As for its touchpad, this model is equipped with a 4.33 inches (110 mm) wide touchpad, just like that of its predecessor. It is basically a glass touchpad that is noticeably smoother than the touchpad on cheaper laptops, like the Swift 5. Furthermore, its left- and right-click buttons have travel that is so deep that one would never have to worry about accidental presses while swiping about. In addition, ThinkPads also stand out for the three buttons above the trackpad and red rubber TrackPoint, which one might either love or hate to use. In terms of its performance, this model has been incorporated with the Intel Core i7-1260P vPro processor.  As for its display, similar to the Gen 6 ThinkPad X1 Yoga, Gen 7 has a 16:10, 14-inch screen. As far as the battery life is concerned, Lenovo mentioned that the laptop can last for up to 14.9 hours on the MobileMark 2018 benchmark with the screen set to 250 nits, and 19.7 hours with local video playback and the screen set to 150 nits. Overall, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

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.

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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
