Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga slim down with 8th-gen Core chips for 2019

Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 series, including the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga, are already among the top business notebooks in their class. At CES 2019 in Las Vegas, Lenovo’s making its laptops thinner, lighter, and faster with the latest Intel “Whiskey Lake” Core processors. The Yoga gets an all-new aluminum chassis, too LearnTechNews.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon (7th Gen), also known as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2019) will be priced at $1709.99 and up, and will begin shipping in June. The  ThinkPad X1 Yoga Convertible Notebook 4th Gen, or the 2019 edition, will be priced at $1929.99 and up, also shipping in June.

As you might expect, both notebooks boast Intel’s 8th-generation Core chips—though Lenovo’s not saying what specific CPU architecture is included. One plus that’s common to both platforms is Lenovo’s continued commitment toward improving the display, with options that include both Dolby Vision and HDR400 certification, as well as 500 nit output on the 4K panel options and 400 nits on the 1080p displays. That’s much brighter than many laptop displays.
