Black Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 20Jd (20JD000WUS) is a second generation 2-in-1 convertible ultrabook with OLED WQHD 14-inch touchscreen with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, 7th generation Intel i7 processor, large amounts of memory and SSD storage and the Windows 10 Pro 64-bit as the operating system.

Intel i7-7600U is an ultra low voltage eighth generation dual-core Kaby Lake processor at speeds between 2.8 and 3.9GHz with turbo boost and hyper-threading. It has a Passmark benchmark score of 5098 and can handle a variety of demanding work and leisure tasks as a fast processor. It has the same micro architecture as the previous Skylake processors, with the same performance per MHz, but quicker dynamic adjustments for clocks and voltages, higher frequencies and efficiency. It was the fastest dual core processor on the market when it was released in 2017.

16GB DDR4 memory at 1866 MHz is great for all the multitasking power you may need, with a few browsers, apps and software open at the same time. There will hardly ever be any delays, lagging or freezing. The 16GB memory is soldered on and can not be upgraded after you purchase the machine, but you can choose at the time of your order. 512GB PCIe SSD offers good size storage and plenty of speed when opening the files and helps with the quicker performance of the machine overall. It has a convenient backlit keyboard for typing comfortably in the dim light or dark and the fingerprint reader for security.

14-inch WQHD OLED touchscreen has the 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and 10-point multi-touch and you can use it with the ThinkPad Pen Pro. The built-in graphics card is the Intel HD 620 for playing some of the latest games at low settings and the older less-demanding ones at higher settings and resolutions. Given that this is not a gaming but more of a work machine it will be fine for your daily graphics or media tasks. One of the best features of this machine is the picture quality and resolution with deep contrast and vibrant colors.

Many different AC power adapters work on this unit if you wish to order another one. One of the customers received a slightly defective OLED display and it was fixed easily as part of the warranty coverage. Sound volume is not very high, is a bit limited and you may want to use speakers or earphones if you need them. In the box you’ll get the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 ultrabook, 4-cell battery power adapter and the ThinkPad Pen Pro.

The OLED screen on this Lenovo has more vibrant colors than on Macbook Pros, although not as bright which may be better and more comfy for you over the extended use. It is an industrial-grade robust machine that is built to last for a very long time and is a bit expensive but you’re getting what you pay for. Keys feels good and on the keyboard that feels comfy to type on with the decent key travel. And the precision trackpad works well with the Windows gestures. It offers portability, versatility, power, performance, user-friendly features and is worth considering if you have the budget for this great machine. It is offered with a 3-year standard depot warranty and also the 30-day Amazon return and refund policy.
