Lenovo's Refreshed ThinkPad X1 Line Brings Dolby Vision HDR and Amazon Alexa

Moving to the ThinkVision monitors, the X24 will be available from January 2018 at $249 (approx Rs 15,850), while the P32u will sell from March 2018 at price tag of $1,349 (approx Rs 85,870). It's a professional notebook that aims to blend ThinkPad's legacy with all new Intel 8 gen Core processors. This means multi-mode enthusiasts can get 8th Gen Intel Core processors and the all-new Premium Dolby Vision capable display in a flexible form-factor. Additionally, it packs a 16GB DDR3RAM and up to 1TB PCIe SSD.

If the machine's guts aren't enough for the task at hand, users can connect external monitors, graphics cards, or storage devices to the X1's pair of Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports. The X1 series will then function just like any other Alexa speaker, allowing you to ask questions and make requests of the assistant even when the laptop is closed.

First up is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which is now entering its 6 generation. But, honestly, the coolest thing about this laptop are the Alexa voice command features.

The ThinkPad L Series will hit the market from February 2018, at starting price $549 (approx Rs 34,946) for ThinkPad L380 Yoga, $449 (approx Rs 28,954) for L380, $779 (approx Rs 49,654) for L480 and $769 (approx Rs 48,950) for L580. The new convertible comes with a 14 inch HDR (2,560 x 1,440p) touchscreen display. It assures a battery backup of 15 hours on one charge.

The tablet is powered by Intel's latest 8th-gen processors, boasts up to 16GB of system RAM, and offers optional LTE-A connectivity for speedy web surfing on the move. It has retained the IR Camera and Fingerprint Reader in combination with Windows Hello.

At a press briefing at CES on Sunday, a Lenovo representative explained that the company expects most business customers will stick with the regular full HD (1,920 by 1,080) displays, and that HDR will really be most intriguing for early adopters who are buying an X1 as their personal computer. Dolby's Vision HDR is essentially a superior HDR experience that provides a broader palette of vibrant colours, greater contrast and brightness. It comes with a Thunderbolt 3 cable for connecting with a supported laptop. Apart from that, the professional monitor comes with four USB 3.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Both the devices expected to be available early this summer, Lenovo said.
