And yes, this laptop fully supports Windows Hello, so I could log in with the fingerprint scanner, my face or the regular password. Windows ran fast over a solid state drive, while I could connect to the TV via an HDMI port (or wirelessly). I was watching Marco Polo on Netflix in no time!
Weighing less than 2 kg, the laptop was easy to carry around; the 14-inch quadHD screen was bright, even in bright sunlight, and typing on the backlit keyboard was a dream. Like all ThinkPads, this one sports a track point, along with the trackpad. The trackpad, while being very responsive, lacks the click buttons at the bottom; instead they're on top.
Since it also sports the Yoga moniker, there was more to the ThinkPad. One, it transformed into tablet mode, if needed, and could be used with a recessed stylus; two, there were no key presses even when I placed the ThinkPad's keyboard face-down in tablet mode; and three, it's touchscreen is quite responsive though a tad bulky. Powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM, this review unit was no slouch with whatever we threw at it; it's not made for gaming because of its integrated graphics and limited storage, yet I installed Age of Mythology - and stayed up the night playing it.
When I used the laptop for browsing, writing and a bit of watching videos, I could get through the day on a single charge; but if I indulged in a bit of gaming, the battery depleted faster.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a svelte device capable of handling most day-to-day tasks of business users. Plus, it can also double up as a tablet if needed. If you're looking for a capable laptop with added features, this should be on the top of your list.
