87.4% Lenovo ThinkPad X390 Yoga (i7, FHD) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
For the first time since 2015 Lenovo has developed a new case for its business-oriented ThinkPad Yoga convertible. The Lenovo ThinkPad X390 Yoga is slimmer than its predecessor and offers improved CPU performance. However, the convertible lacks several features available in the normal ThinkPad X390. We have done an in-depth review of the convertible laptop with an Intel Whiskey Lake processor.
80% Lenovo ThinkPad X390 review: Compact, portable, and powerful
Source: Neowin English
Ultimately, the Lenovo ThinkPad X390 punches above its weight, which is just 2.84 pounds. The performance is solid, and it's incredibly easy to just throw in a bag and take it with you. And at that weight, it's still got the build quality that we've come to expect from ThinkPads, with various MIL-STD-810G tests. This PC starts at $746.25, although the model that Lenovo sent me will run you $1,484.10, which is nearly double the price of the base model. Upgrades include the CPU, RAM, storage, and display, and it's completely customizable. If you're looking for something that's easy to carry around, check it out.

Lenovo ThinkPad X390 Yoga review – security or versatility – why not both?
Source: Laptop Media English
No matter whether you are looking at this device as a convertible or as a business solution, in both ways it is going to satisfy your needs perfectly. It is as reliable as a ThinkPad and as versatile as a Yoga. This sounds like a sacred combination and it certainly feels as such – the laptop is crazy fast (even when paired with only a SATA SSD).

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.» 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.  

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.Intel Core i5:

8265U: 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 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.
