At the week-long IFA this year in Berlin, leading technology giants from around the globe have come together to announce innovative new computing devices, from laptops to consumer appliances. The laptop-maker Lenovo has got the crowd buzzing with its announcement of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme—an entirely new ThinkPad that packs a punch with an Intel i7 (or i5) processor, NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1050 Ti W graphics, 16GB RAM (or 8GB), and 512GB storage (or 256GB). It comes with a price tag of $3000 and $2100 for the i7 and i5 models respectively.
Equipped with an IPS panel, the 15.6” laptop has an astoundingly bright and colorful display and ease of use that bodes brilliantly for both personal and professional use. People in the know speculate that Lenovo is pitching its latest offering in competition to similar devices like Dell’s XPS 15. But be that as it may, the powerful new ThinkPad holds its own and has stellar features like a 3840 x 2160 screen resolution and an overclocking ability up to 4.1GHz to boot (both in the i7 model).
A smart machine that combines form, function and style, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme looks superbly well-poised to take the marketplace by storm.
