Intel had an impressive showing of convertible devices at the annual CES 2014 convention two weeks ago. Among an array of Ultrabooks was the new 12.5 inch ThinkPad Yoga which I got to check out for the first time. Beyond Lenovo’s classic ‘Yoga’ convertible mechanism is a smart retractable keyboard and an amazing trackpad.
Lenovo’s CES chest of goodies has been opened at CES and among them is an updated Thinkpad Carbon X1 with Haswell, new high res screen and other upgrades.
Lenovo is taking it’s convertible Ultrabook design into the business world, today announcing the ThinkPad Yoga. The ThinkPad Yoga comes with a unique keyboard that hides away when the unit is in tablet mode to create a smooth back to the unit.
Lenovo launched five new Thinkpads today. We’ve taken a look at the X240 here but now we’re looking closely at the Thinkpad T440 and T440s which obviously replace the T430/T431 range as 14-inch business-class Ultrabooks.
Lenovo launched five new Thinkpads today. We’re taking a closer look at each one in turn. First-up is what we consider to be the one that embraces what we love about Ultrabooks. High mobility, long battery life and lots of technology that helps to ‘get things done.’ The Lenovo Thinkpad X240 will replace the X230 and offer Ultrabook builds on the 15W TDP Haswell processors.
Lenovo’s website has given a clue to what its first Haswell powered Thinkpad will be and its looking like it will be the T440s with a nice roster of features.
Lenovo has announced the ThinkPad T431s business Ultrabook, succeeding their prior T430s laptop. The new vPro equipped Ultrabook is aimed squarely at businesses, much like Lenovo’s premium ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The T431s has a 14-inch 1600×900 display (which can fold back 180 degrees), backlit keyboard, up to 12GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, and more.
Back in October we caught sight of the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix, an 11.6-inch slate Ultrabook with a dockable keyboard. Now, as CES begins, Lenovo has made the thus far elusive unit official, including the starting price ($1499) and release date (late February).
With the ThinkPad Twist and IdeaPad Yoga, Lenovo now has Ultrabook convertible options for its business and consumer laptop segments. The , with starting price of $799, is actually one of the cheapest Ultrabook convertibles on the market. Surprisingly the consumer-positioned IdeaPad Yoga 13 is actually more expensive, starting at $999 — though it does come with a better display. The is now available while the IdeaPad Yoga 13 is still a few weeks off.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook from Lenovo is certainly shaping up to be a great choice for a premium business laptop; it weighs in at 1.36kg with a 14″ screen and ample enterprise options. Now the anticipated Ultrabook is available for purchase. With good marks from early reviews, the lightweight X1 Carbon’s only downside might be the price!
