OLED Comes To Lenovo’s Hybrid Line With The ThinkPad X1 Yoga


Lenovo’s Yoga line of hybrid computers has featured some interesting models, but the latest variant, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga, has two features that make it stand out: an OLED display and a versatility that allows it to be used in four different ways.

For those who don’t know what OLED display is, OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) puts electricity through various materials to produce the red, green and blue light needed to produce a TV image. No other technology creates images directly like this. LCDs use color filters and light-blocking liquid crystals above a light-creating backlight. Plasmas use UV light created by igniting pockets of gas to excite red, green, and blue phosphors.

OLED screens—which are already in smartphones, tablets, and TVs—are also attractive for their super-slim form factor, light weight, wide viewing angle, color gamut, and low power consumption.

The OLED screen gives the X1 Yoga real bragging rights, but other screen options are also available, including non-OLED 2,560×1,440 and 1,920×1,080 options. The hybrid is equipped with up to Intel Core i7 processors, 1TB of solid-state drive storage and 16GB of DDR3 RAM.

It also offers four flexible modes so that users can “present” (with the display twisted backwards, allowing the screen to be used with the keyboard out of the way), “work” (in standard laptop mode), “connect” (with the display and the keyboard forming a tabletop tent shape), and “create” (with the display folded back 360 degrees to form a tablet shape).

Hence, if you’re into beautiful displays and hybrid laptops that do not compromise on performance, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is just the right laptop for you. Please share your thoughts and concerns with us in the comment section below.
