Technology company Lenovo recently unveiled the latest addition to its premium X1 portfolio: the ThinkPad X1 Nano. Considered to be the lightest ThinkPad ever at just 1.99 lbs (907g), it aims to break new grounds in terms of performance and functionality in a featherweight package.
Lenovo’s first ThinkPad based on the Intel Evo platform and powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors, the X1 Nano promises to deliver “supreme speed and intelligence” while maintaining outstanding battery life. The visuals are delivered through a narrow-bezel 13-inch 2K display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and four speakers and four 360-degree microphones enhance the audio-visual capabilities.
ThinkPad X1 Nano is expected to be available in the fourth quarter 2020. Prices are expected to start at $1,399.
Connectivity is provided by WiFi 65 and optional 5G which is hoped to deliver higher bandwidth capability and drive new levels of always on always connected efficiency and collaboration in a new hybrid working world.
Packed with up to 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, X1 Nano promises to deliver up to 2.7x faster content creation, more than 20% faster office productivity9, and more than 2x faster gaming plus streaming10 in real-world workflows over competitive products.
The Thunderbolt offers fast, single cable connection to power, monitors, storage, and many other external devices. X1 Nano is the first ThinkPad to feature an updated suite of AI and biometric ThinkShield security features. These range from new voice recognition and human presence detection that enable zero-touch login and device lock when the user walks away to the familiar Match on Chip Fingerprint Reader.
Lenovo also announced that the world’s first foldable PC, ThinkPad X1 Fold, is available to order with prices starting at $2,499 and will ship in a few weeks. The X1 Fold offers a mix of portability and versatility that defines a new computing category enabled by Intel Core processors with Intel Hybrid Technology and made possible by Intel’s Project Athena innovation program.
