Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 20FQ-000QUS
Yoga-ized. Lenovo's flagship business Ultrabook - the Thinkpad X1 - gets the Yoga-treatment and joins the company's every-growing stable of 2-in-1 convertibles. How the new offspring with its active stylus compares is the subject of our review.

It’s something I’ve found with most Windows laptops recently. The ideas are almost always there, but it’s never a fully polished and perfect experience. As we approach the end of October, Apple is expected to debut a new MacBook Pro and Lenovo’s X1 Yoga will compete directly with it. That means that anything less than perfect, especially at a starting price of $1,869, won’t be enough if Apple shakes up the world once again with a new look for its laptop. We’ll have to see what Apple has planned, but for now, Lenovo has given us a look at the future of laptop displays, but not the whole laptop of the future package.

Pricing of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga lineup kicks off at $1,394 for an entry-level variant with Core i5 CPU and 128GB of onboard memory. Configuring a top-tier version gets expensive, and quickly — a variant with OLED display, Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage for example costs more than $2,300. That's a substantial amount, though still less than a Microsoft Surface Book with comparable hardware ($2,699).

The X1 Yoga does a great job branching out from the X1 Carbon, which is itself an Ultrabook with positive characteristics. But the Yoga further builds on the Carbon by morphing that basic design into a thin and light two-in-one notebook using the Yoga hinge. For those looking for a notebook first, with some extra capabilities of being a touch device or tablet, the Yoga style devices from our experience win hands down over detachable convertibles.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). 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.
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» 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 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.
88.8%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
