If you follow me on social media (you definitely should, by the way!), you know that I just got the ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 in the mail over the weekend. I’ve started playing with the device over the last couple of days, and I really like it. It’s fast, its screen is gorgeous (I got the 4K model, ICYWW), and it does the whole 360-degree flippy thing. It does have a somewhat dated 8th-gen Intel Core i7 vPro processor, but that doesn’t mean its performance will suffer.
But now I can’t help but feel like Lenovo offered me the laptop too early. That’s because today, the company is announcing an upgraded ThinkPad X1 Yoga that comes with 10th-gen Intel processors. If I knew this model was coming, I probably would’ve waited until it was ready for reviewers to test. I’m happy with the one I got, but I can’t help but feel like Lenovo pulled the trigger a bit early on seeding the device.
Nevertheless, the X1 Yoga is now available with up to a six-core 10th-gen i7 processor. You can also get up to 16GB of RAM, up to 2TB of SSD storage, a 14-inch UHD 500-nit display, LTE, and 18.3 hours of battery life. The rest of the laptop is like the other fourth-gen X1 Yoga which ships with a backlit keyboard, a sizeable trackpad, two USB 3.1 ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, an HDMI port, Dolby Atmos speakers, and Windows Hello compatibility.
The new X1 Yoga with 10th-gen Intel processors will begin shipping next month. It’ll start at $1,609.
