At IFA 2018 in Berlin today, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, one of the most powerful ThinkPad devices ever built by the company. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme joins the other X1 series devices, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, ThinkPad X1 Yoga and ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The introduction of this new model also demonstrates the success of ThinkPad X1 series among consumers. Also Read - Samsung and LG confirm presence at in-person CES 2022

Since the release of first ThinkPad notebook, the fundamental philosophy has been to offer purposeful design. With the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, Lenovo thinks that purposeful design would be clamshell and not convertible. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme sits above the X1 Carbon in the series and has lot of design bearings from the sixth generation X1 Carbon. While the X1 Carbon was meant for consumers, the X1 Extreme goes where no other laptop has tried to go. As Kevin Beck, Senior Worldwide Competitive Analyst, Lenovo Intelligent Devices Group, describes it, “The ThinkPad X1 Extreme blurs the line between consumer and professional requirements.” Also Read - Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon Review: Stylish, Slim, Super Performer

Kevin is right and his words turn true when you read the specifications of the X1 Extreme. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme comes with a 15.6-inch 4K display that supports 10 bit colors and has 100 percent sRGB support. The laptop comes standard with the six-core Intel 8th generation Core i7-8850H processor but can also be configured with a Core i9 model (although this option isn’t going to be available at launch). The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is 18.4mm thick and yet packs a GTX 1050Ti graphics as standard on all models. In order to ensure that the X1 Extreme does not get affected by same throttling issues as the 2018 MacBook Pro, Lenovo has designed a dual-fan cooling system that uses hybrid cooling to regulate the heat dissipated by the processor.

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme can be configured with up to 64GB of RAM and uses dual PCIe SSD storage that supports the RAID 0/1 configuration. As with any ThinkPad laptop, the memory and SSD is not soldered, which makes them easily replaceable and offers the option to upgrade memory and storage for future use case. The X1 Extreme also comes with a keyboard that offers 1.8mm key travel, which is similar to one found on the X1 Carbon. The keyboard supports LED backlit and integrates the trackpoint, also referred to as ThinkPad nub into it.

There is a standard webcam which uses ThinkShutter to physically block the camera. However, consumers can also configure it with Windows Hello camera for facial recognition. Other security features include a dedicated TPM chip, fingerprint sensor and smart card recognition. Lenovo says it has designed the ThinkPad X1 Extreme with the following use case in mind: gaming, learning and training.

The sheer performance and capability of the machine does suggest that it would excel at all of these use cases. While most laptops are trying to become thinner and lighter, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme seems to be finding a middle ground. It can be described as a laptop that is neither thin nor light. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme also comes with support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and the company is promising up to 80 percent battery life in just 60 minutes of charging. The X1 Extreme will be available starting at $1,859 (around Rs 1,31,100) from September with Core i7. The Intel Core i9 model is said to arrive in December and the pricing will be revealed closer to launch.
