Lisa Gade reviews Lenovo’s new business-minded 2-in-1, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The X1 Tablet is more simply and elegantly designed than the ThinkPad Helix, and it has modern Intel Skylake 6th generation Core m5 and m7 CPUs inside. The 12” tablet has a very good IPS 2160 x 1440 display with high brightness and good color gamut. It supports both Wacom AES pen and touch, and Lenovo includes the pen in the box. The ThinkPad style keyboard is also included.

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet isn’t cheap. Our Core m5 with 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 gig SSD lists for $1,349. The Windows 10 2-in-1 convertible is available with SATA-3 SSDs and most configurations will have 8 gigs of DDR3L RAM. The tablet competes with MS Surface Pro 4, and is the higher end alternative to the Lenovo Miix 700. It will work with a variety of modules that snap onto the bottom edge, including the Productivity Module that adds a OneLink+ dock, HDMI and USB 3.0 as well as a secondary battery; a projector module and 3D Intel RealSense camera module. The X1 Tablet has a USB-C 3.1 port that handles charging, a USB 3.0 port, microSD card slot, mini DisplayPort and a 3.5mm audio jack. It has optional 4G LTE with a SIM card slot on the back.
