Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 review: So metal

 

Lenovo mixed things up with the ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4, swapping out the usual magnesium alloy and carbon fiber chassis with aluminum. That makes the 360-degree 2-in-1 not only robust on paper thanks to its MIL-STD-810g testing, but also solid in hand....

Unique aesthetic for a ThinkPad ; Superior build quality ; Lovely 4K display with HDR ; Clear audio from speakers

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 gives up plastic for cold, hard metal

ThinkPad X1 Yoga review (2018): Flexibility comes at a cost

 

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.

More useful than a traditional laptop ; Great battery life ; Great keyboard and touchpad

Heavier than the Carbon X1 ; HDR screen is extra

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 2) Review

 

If you're a ThinkPad fan and want a 2-n-1, buy this one – if not, there are other, better options

Solid build quality ; Excellent battery life ; Good keyboard, touchpad, and TrackPoint input ; Thin and light for a 14-inch 2-in-1

Expensive ; 360-degree swivel action is loud and harsh ; Full HD display is only average

Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Yoga will make you want OLED everywhere

 

The OLED edition of Lenovo's X1 Yoga makes a good argument for moving past LCD screens. Its display is bright and vibrant, but you'll pay a premium for the privilege of using it.

Incredible OLED screen ; Durable and portable design ; Great keyboard

Expensive compared to LCD models ; Meager battery life ; Stylus is uncomfortable

The Thinkpad X1 Yoga is a reminder that OLED isn't just bright and bold, it's a transformative display technology. Now if only it weren't so expensive.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3 review

 

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga has a lovely display, but it's heavy and doesn't last long enough on a charge.

Display is spectacular, bright, and colorful ; Solid productivity performance ; Mostly solid build quality ; Great soft-touch feel

Very expensive ; Thicker and heavier than many competing 2-in-1s ; Disappointing battery life

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a curious mix of awesome and meh. That high-end display is to die for, and it will only get better when its Dolby Vision HDR support arrives. But its chassis, though typically robust, is heavier and thicker than it needs to be....

This is a seriously good 2-in-1 for serious business

 

Filled with new tech and features, the third-generation X1 Yoga is an impressive, albeit pricey, convertible laptop.

The third-gen Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga two-in-one has the same premium durable design as past models and gets an extremely bright HDR display option, eighth-gen Intel Core processors, a more secure fingerprint reader and a webcam privacy shutter among...

Battery life, at least on the high-end configuration, is underwhelming. The HDR display isn't ideal out of the box for color-critical work.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga continues to be a top choice for a business-class two-in-one, but all-day battery life will require dialing back on its premium options.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (2018)

 

With its combination of a staid black appearance and a 4K HDR screen, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga convertible laptop straddles the line between sublime business machine and movie lover's dream.

Copious memory and storage as configured. Bright, vivid HDR display. Built-in active stylus. Keyboard automatically retracts in tablet mode. Quick charging.

Expensive as configured. Ethernet port requires proprietary adapter.

Bottom Line: With its combination of a staid black appearance and a 4K HDR screen, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga convertible laptop straddles the line between sublime business machine and movie lover's dream.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga review: tomorrow's display in yesterday's laptop

 

I haven't used a Lenovo laptop as my main computer for years. In fact, the last time I touched a Lenovo laptop for more than a few hours was when I used to manage a fleet of them in a corporate...

Beautiful OLED display ; Chiclet keyboard ; Light and portable

Unreliable battery life ; Aging, boring design ; Unnecessary nub and trackpad buttons

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (OLED)

 

OLED technology and a higher screen resolution hike up the price of this version of Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Yoga, but this business convertible performs well, boasts plenty of features, and now looks even better.

The OLED display is vibrant, crisp, and a first for the industry. Convertible design is lightweight and durable. Comfortable keyboard. Built-in stylus.

Expensive. OLED display decreases battery life. No USB-C or Ethernet ports.

Conclusion The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga with an OLED display offers the same top-notch design, functionality, and performance as the original Editors' Choice X1 Yoga. The internal components also received an upgrade, so it's definitely more expensive,...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga review: This 2-in-1's OLED screen will color your computing world

 

With an OLED display and an NVMe SSD, the Lenovo X1 Yoga delivers rich colors and top-notch performance.

Great performance ; Excellent keyboard, clickpad, and eraserhead

Shipped without proper NVMe SSD driver

The X1 Yoga belongs on anyone's list for the latest and greatest. Sure, we'd have liked to see the inclusion of USB 3.1 or Thunderbolt 3, but the combination of the X1 Yoga’s OLED display and NVMe SSD (plus excellent keyboard, clickpad, and eraserhead)...
