The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is a versatile 2-in-1 convertible laptop that can function both as a traditional laptop and a tablet, suiting dynamic work environments. It sits at a lower midrange price and is fairly lightweight and thin, enhancing its portability. With an Intel i5 processor and integrated graphics, it's well-suited for general use and office productivity tasks but may fall short for intensive engineering programs or 3D/machine learning applications. Battery life is good enough to get you through a workday. Its high-resolution touchscreen display shows crisp images and accurate colors, although not optimized for fast-paced gaming. Solid build quality, a good range of modern ports, and a comfortable keyboard with extra features like a fingerprint reader and facial recognition are noteworthy. However, users seeking more power for specialized tasks or longer-lasting battery might have to look at higher-end models. Give Feedback

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is equipped with a high-quality IPS screen and a good processor, combined with ample RAM, which makes it efficient for various tasks and offers a crisp, vivid display for general use.

Gaming & AI:
3.2
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga is fair for gaming and 3D because it uses an integrated GPU (Intel i5-1130G7 Iris Xe) that's less powerful compared to dedicated gaming GPUs, which may limit performance in graphics-intensive tasks. Additionally, its screen has a max refresh rate of 60Hz, which is adequate for general use but less smooth than higher refresh rates preferred for gaming and fast-paced 3D applications.

PCMag

Tom Brant | April 2021
"The ThinkPad X1 Titanium is a showcase of what Lenovo thinks business computing will look like in the near future. People want thinner, lighter laptops with high-quality screens and enough computing power to get their work done. The X1 Titanium achieves these goals with some controversial but innovative design choices, including a redesigned keyboard and a pared-down port selection."
