Lenovo is updating its ThinkPad X1 Extreme at the IFA event, adding more power and reducing the heft in a bid to make it the ultimate business laptop.
The touch-enabled display has been stretched to 15-inches now , though the bezels are comparatively very small. The hinge also bends downwards to give an impression of small bezels and elevates typing position on the back-lit keyboards. The trademark Track-Point navigator is still available in the mid of keyboard.
You will get the option for either a standard Full HD 1080p IPS panel or a touchscreen panel with support for HDR and Dolby Vision . The machine weighs about 3.75lbs. Complementary Dolby Atmos speakers are on keyboard.
Underneath, you get one of Intel’s newer 8th-generation Core i7 processors, with a Core i9 version set to be released later 2018. Alongside is support for up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM.
For best graphics, you get a 4 GB Nvidia Ge-Force 1050 Ti, in a Max-Q configuration no-less, alongside integrated UHD Graphics 620. The former is most powerful enough for some gaming, however, if you want something better there are much other cheaper options available.
