ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 5 – 360 View – image Lenovo
Another non-review where we examine the usual suspects. You know the drill:
From time to time Lenovo sends me a gadget. They’re handy to have around – both for my own use and when trying to help out in the Lenovo forums. I do some testing and writing as well. Beyond the use of the laptop, I’m not otherwise compensated.
Professional images are Lenovo’s. Amateur snapshots are mine. Opinions are exclusively mine. I do not work for, represent, or speak for Lenovo.
Well, my luck continues to hold. A pre-customer-ship-level ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 5 showed up a couple of weeks ago. As was the Gen 4 unit I took a look at recently – 2nd Look: ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 & 10th Gen i7 – it appears to be an evolution and enhancement of the previous model… and a nice one, at that. Superficially almost identical to the Gen 4, but with a different set of CPU options, an upgraded wifi chip, and improved ergonomics – at least to my admittedly subjective first impression.
I have no reason to think that the X1YG5 on my bench is any different than the customer-ship units, but as always what I describe here is based on the unit in hand. YMMV.
