A tablet or notebook should flexibly adapt to the user’s individual lifestyle, as it accompanies its owner through the entire day and has been chosen to meet individual needs in the first place. The tablet from the new ThinkPad X1 series was designed especially for use by business professionals. Its form and functionality perfectly adapt to the needs of users working with it. It inspires at first glance with a balanced stylistic idiom that lends it an air of elegance. Its impressive design boasts a generous 13” display and other outstanding features that ensure a comfortable user experience otherwise comparable only to a business laptop. However, it is thinner and much more flexible, as it is a tablet and a notebook all-in-one. Developed to serve users, this tablet also showcases features such as the redesigned, highly functional kickstand. Characterised by an iconic appearance, its cross hinge allows seamless transition to multiple productivity modes. The full-width ThinkPad keyboard is also marked by sophistication. As a successful combination of stability and slim shape, it is highly comfortable to use and even allows users to adjust it to different angles. With the ThinkPad X1 tablet, design and functionality merge to project a holistic experience infused with a haunting premium feel.
