Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme mobile workstation review

 

With great power comes a massive price tag

So much power ; Glorious 4K screen ; Great user experience

Heavy ; Expensive ; Battery life could be better

This is one expensive laptop, but many might willingly pay the price for this beautifully engineered and designed machine. If you want desktop-level power with portability in a robust package, the X1 Extreme is built for exactly that.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review: The ThinkPad, perfected

 

Souped-up performance, an immaculate display and layer upon layer of security tools make the ThinkPad X1 Extreme worth its high price

Superb display; Fast CPU performance; Lots of business tools

Basic GPU; Middling battery life; Expensive

Few laptops can cost this much and still feel worth it, but the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is no ordinary laptop. From performance to the keyboard, from connectivity to the display, it succeeds at almost every turn, and business buyers in particular can take...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme

 

Torn between the Dell XPS 15 and Apple MacBook Pro? Your decision gets more complicated with the arrival of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme, a deluxe desktop replacement with a sensational Dolby Vision HDR screen.

Stylish, sleek, and light. Stunning 4K touch screen. Legendary ThinkPad keyboard. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

Expensive. No Core i9 or WWAN option. Ethernet port requires optional dongle. Lackluster battery life.

Bottom Line: Torn between the Dell XPS 15 and Apple MacBook Pro? Your decision gets more complicated with the arrival of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme, a deluxe desktop replacement with a sensational Dolby Vision HDR screen.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review: the right mix of work and fun

 

Can you have fun using a business laptop?

Crisp and bright 4K screen ; I am sold on that keyboard ; Great battery life ; SD card slot

Fan noise gets worse on your lap ; Who ; still needs TrackPoint? ; Desirable configurations are ; expensive ; The speakers aren’t that great

If configured to be a high-end machine, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is probably the best business-oriented Windows 10 laptop you can buy. I’d even go a step further and say it’s one of the better machines to come out this year. Lenovo has proven that a...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Review: Thin, fast and all business

 

Give the ThinkPad six cores and a GeForce GPU and you get the Lenovo ThinkPad Extreme X1, a 15-inch laptop that's large and in charge.

Relatively fast, yet light at 4 lbs. ; Upgrades options galore

Painfully expensive ; 4K battery life is average at best

Overall, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is an impressive laptop, but is it a Dell XPS 15 killer? That depends. On the performance front, it tracks closely. But where it really shines is weight. While you may scoff at an 8-ounce difference (when similarly...

Sporting a gorgeous 4K display, powerful Intel i7 processor and discrete Nvidia graphics, this 15.6-inch powerhouse lives up to the name: Extreme.

Phenomenal 4K HDR display; Blazing-fast performance; Luxurious design; Thin and lightweight; Comfortable keyboard

Below-average battery life; Runs warm; Expensive

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Review

 

Announced in August , the ThinkPad X1 Extreme got a discrete GPU, along with a 15.6-inch display. This is an important inflection point because until...

Very good 4K display option ; Lightest high-performance 15.6-inch ; Fast battery charging ; Great performance/value

Noisy under intense workloads ; No Core i9 CPU option today
