2018 Lenovo ThinkPads best yet


Been waiting a while? Get Flash to see this player.

Dolby Vision screen, far-field audio, and 8th Gen Core.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 range of laptops are some of the most beautiful around, marrying bulletproof build quality with near-perfect ergonomics. The start of the year usually sees the range updated, and 2018 is no exception.

The X1 carbon now houses the 8th Gen Kaby Lake-R processors. That's to be expected. What's more novel is (upcoming) support for Dolby Vision HDR on the non-touch model. Seeing it in the flesh, with brightness upped to 500 nits, is a feast for the eyes, so you may soon be enjoying Netflix in all its glory. Prices start at $1,709.

The X1 Yoga, meanwhile, also features far-field microphones, presumably to enable Alexa integration. It too features an Intel CPU upgrade to 8th Gen technology. Lovely bits of kit.

Lenovo really needs to work on their spyware problem. Or, perhaps, “not work on it” would be more appropriate.
