Lenovo’s annual Accelerate event is serving as a launchpad of sorts to a number of new devices, one of which is the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2. As its name suggests, it’s the second iteration of the X1 Extreme notebook, and it belongs to a group of “smarter PCs” that score big by going slim and small.
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 is best described as an improvement over its predecessor thanks to a few “monster upgrades” such as support for up to 9th-gen Intel Core i9 processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics with the Max-Q design, and up to 4TB of total onboard storage.
Designed for business users
It’s a Windows 10-powered thin-and-light laptop that is said to be perfect for advanced business users, offering high-performance computing features as well as boosted entertainment capabilities. It comes with a 15-inch display as standard, an optional 4K OLED touchscreen, Dolby Atmos audio, and support for AR/VR apps.
As a ThinkPad notebook, the X1 Extreme Gen 2 also features Lenovo’s ThinkShield suite for much-needed protection through the use of hardware, software, and secure services. The security here goes all the way to the level of the BIOS, so it should cover all that’s necessary.
Price and release date
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 is expected to become available sometime in July, with prices starting at $1,499.99. You can find out more about it through Lenovo’s Accelerate event that starts today.
