Lenovo has finally updated its ThinkPad family of products. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon receives a 7th generation update while the ThinkPad X1 Yoga receives a 4th generation one.

Portability sees an improvement as both their weights have become lighter, and performance gets a boost from new 8th gen processors.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has not only gotten lighter but at 14.75mm its also thinner than the previous version. The most notable change on the exterior is the new carbon fibre weave pattern that looks surprisingly good. Just like last year the display comes at 14 inches available at both FullHD and QHD resolutions. The new 8th Gen Intel Core processors come paired with 8GB or 16GB of Memory and a 2TB NVMe PCIe SSD. The IO consists of two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The 51 watt-hour battery provides an impressive 15 hours of battery life as claimbed by Lenovo.

ThinkPad X1 Yoga

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2-in-1 gets a new CNC-machined aluminium chassis and has much smaller bezels, giving it a 17 percent smaller percent footprint than the previous version. Most other specifications are same as the X1 Carbon with the exception of the display which is an impressive 10-bit 4K HDR panel.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga will hit stores around June priced at $1,709.99 and $1,929.99 respectively.
