The ThinkPad X1 series has firmly established itself as one of the best thin-and-light laptops around. But what if you need a bit more oomph packed into its 13-inch frame? Enter the ThinkPad X1 Extreme.
This is a 15-inch X1. It’s still thin and light—the weight starts at under 4lbs (1.7kg), and it’s 0.7 inches (18mm) thick—but Lenovo is making good use of the extra space afforded by the 15-inch screen.
If this sounds a little familiar, it’s because the X1 Extreme is more or less the mainstream counterpart to the P1 workstation announced a couple of weeks ago. The P1 offers Xeon-branded CPUs and Quadro-branded GPUs, compared to the Core and GeForce-branded parts in the X1. But the machines are otherwise much the same.
Pricing starts at $1860, available immediately.
