Even though the CES 2016 isn’t really thinking about PC products, Lenovo showcases a new business offering in Las Vegas despite it. This is a new product coming out this year, and this Lenovo system is now featuring chrome and windows 10 on it, along with very thin business tablets that come with a 2 in 1 functionality, traditional laptop system, desktops, and a lot of different products in between.

The highlight however is the new ThinkPad X1 tablet, which is an extension of the brand that was originated by the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This tablet features a connector that clips right onto a productivity module (which is a 15 hour battery pack, along with an Intel Core m7 processor, over 10 hours of battery life, and other such neat features. The presenter module on this comes with a projector and an HDMI port, along with a 3D imaging module.


This X1 tablet also allows the person to have a detachable keyboard and TrackPoint system. It weighs only 2.4 pounds and it comes with a keyboard that you can attach. This is a little under $900 and it will be available coming this February.


This also comes with other extensions and upgrades that follow the X1 line too, such as the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, which is a convertible hybrid laptop that comes with a multimode design and even an optional OLED screen. There is the Carbon as well, which is about 2.6 pounds, making it the heaviest. However, all of these systems come with 1 TB of SSD storage, which is great for those who want something fast.


It also comes with the Qulacomm Snapdragon X7 4G LTE modems, WiGig docking, and TPM security as well. The X1 yoga is about 1449 dollars and will be available starting January, and the X1 carbon will be 1299 dollars and will also be released in February as well. There are also some great accessories such as the wireless touch mouse, in-ear headphones, and the WiGig docking station that will be available at the end of the month.

There are also desktops being released as well. One might think they’re dead, but Lenovo doesn’t think so. The ThinkCentre X1 AIO is a 23.8 inch screen that’s only about 11 mm thick. This system might seem like it’s going to be killed by dust immediately, but this system has been prepared to run for at least a decade, and it has a dust-resistant design. It will be going on sale in March as well, and it will be selling for about $1029.


As you can see, Lenovo has a lot that is coming down the line, and with the ThinkPad line coming out and being priced reasonably, one will start to see the differences in laptops and the way they look almost immediately. It’s a new set of products for this company, and it’s exciting to see the different types of systems that are coming down the line, along with the anticipation for what will be next.
