Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8 review – premium business transformer

Business devices are constantly evolving and the. Now, you can find them in many different shapes and forms factors starting from ultra-light laptops to heavy workstations meant for 24/7 work. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8 is a pure office machine that many CEOs should like because it’s not cheap at all but it comes with many goodies under the hood.

It’s a light and thin notebook but you can configure it with Intel Raptor Lake U or P chips and you have seven processor options at your disposal. Expectedly, you’re not going to find dGPU options here which is something normal for such a compact device. The main event is the 390-degree hinge. You can quickly transform the notebook into a tablet or you can use it in tent mode. You can also have more fun with the device thanks to the included ThinkPad Pen Pro.

The security seems on point and Lenovo is trying to attract business users with some useful extras including a Web camera with a privacy shutter, a dTPM chip, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a fingerprint reader. Just like other office laptops from the same brand, you can pick a device with many optional features such as vPro CPUs, IR camera, Privacy Guard, lock on leave function, 4G or 5G connectivity, Computer Vision camera, etc. This will greatly increase the end price, especially if you get the optional 4K OLED touchscreen display. At first glance, the gadget looks like a premium 2-in-1 machine that can be used for work and entertainment.
