Lenovo is launching the business oriented ThinkPad X1 Yoga which takes the Yoga series to the next level. This is the first first convertible device with an OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display.
The X1 Yoga comes with the option of a 14-inch 2560×1440 display made by the leader in OLED technology, Samsung. Up till now OLED has been used in smartphones and some tablets but never on a laptop.
The laptop is equipped with either a 1920×1080 IPS LCD or 2560×1440 IPS LCD. The OLED device is optional, pricier but gives a large gamut with deep blacks and higher contrast.
The business laptop is powered by Intel Skylake-U series processors i3, i5 or Core i7 with vPro. It can get up to 16 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage. It is equipped with three USB 3.0 ports and OneLine+ for Ethernet, an also features mDP, HDMI, microSD, 4G LTE (optional), with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE modem. It also features WiGig wireless docking and a touch fingerprint reader.
The active stylus charges when docked to the base.The keyboard is with the spill-resistant keys and trackpoint retract into the base when the display is rotated around, to improve the ergonomics when used in tablet mode.
The convertible weighs 1.27 kg (2.8 lbs) and is 16.7 mm (0.66-inches) thick.
The new X1 Yoga will be available starting in January, with the OLED model shipping around April. Prices start at $1449.

But it also has the ability to add additional modules like a a Productivity module, Presenter module and even 3D Imaging module.
The brilliantly adaptable ThinkPad X1 Tablet with its unique modular design is obviously business oriented and offers something new that no other tablet can offer yet by adding functionality through simple clip-on optional modules:
For instance if you need more battery you can add the The Productivity Module which adds 5 more hours of usage. It also has full HDMI, and a OneLink+ port.
For those that want to make a presentation the The Presenter Module includes a pico projector and HDMI port.It can project a 60-inch display from 2 meters.
