Lenovo has been expanding its ThinkPad X1 lineup quite a bit lately, and the most recent addition is the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, which comes with a 3:2 display as opposed to the more traditional 16:9 display or even the newer 16:10 screen. When it was announced back at CES, you might have just thought it was a ThinkPad X1 Yoga with a titanium lid and a 3:2 display, but it’s so much more than that.
There’s a lot of engineering that went into making this product, because it’s not just about trying out a new aspect ratio. This is about being good at both being a laptop, and at being a tablet. It’s made to be light at just over two and a half pounds, and it’s designed to be comfortable to hold with the display folded back.
It’s just 11.5mm thin, so it’s not much thicker than a lot of smartphones, and the keyboard is shallower too at 1.35mm. It’s even got a haptic touchpad to save on space. Indeed, Lenovo pulled out all of the stops to get this thing to where it wanted it to be.
Rather than thinking of it as a 3:2 version of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, I think of it as more of a convertible version of the ThinkPad X1 Nano, which is the company’s ultra-light clamshell. Just like the X1 Nano, the X1 Titanium Yoga has lower-powered Intel 11th-gen processors, and just two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
