At CES 2016 Lenovo announced their new ThinkPad laptops for 2016. This year customers will have the possibility to choose from the more standard notebook – the X1 Carbon – or the new X1 Yoga which features a hinge similar to the one of the Lenovo Yoga 900. Users who absolutely want to have a touchscreen have to go with the Yoga variant as Lenovo decided to not offer a touchscreen model of the X1 Carbon this year.
Both the X1 Carbon and the X1 Yoga are powered by either powered by an Intel Skylake Core i5 or i7 and will have up to 16 GB of RAM. Storage is available up to 1 TB SDD. Both have a 14 inch display and will be available in 1080p or WQHD. The Yoga model will be available with a WQHD OLED display. Furthermore the X1 Yoga supports an active stylus just like the new X1 tablet. The stylus can be stored and even recharged within the laptop chassis.
The X1 Carbon weighs only 1.18 kg while the X1 Yoga wheigs 1.36 kg or 1.27 kg for the OLED version.
