Our Specialist view of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Gen 2

The Spec:

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Gen 2 tablet PC has the following spec: a 12 inch 2K IPS 2160 x 1440 multi-touch screen and a detachable keyboard cover. Behind the sharp and impressive screen is an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD). Lenovo have also included dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity as well as a full size USB 3.0 port, USB Type C, Mini DisplayPort and a MicroSD card slot. Windows 10 Professional 64bit is preinstalled for the best user experience.

The Good Bits:

The bottom line spec is fantastic, especially in a tablet but it’s the different connectivity options and the detachable keyboard that sets the X1 apart. Most tablets won’t offer anywhere near the options you’ll find on the ThinkPad and really have micro USB, USB Type C or lightening ports, whereas the X1 has both USB 3.0, USB Type C and Mini DisplayPort. Why is that a benefit I hear you ask? Do you want the option to connect to a larger display? You can with the X1. Do you want to connect via USB to a printer or add a wireless keyboard and mouse? You can with the X1.

The Not So Good Bits:

The ThinkPad X1 isn’t quite as slim and lightweight as a similar size Apple iPad Pro, nor does it look quite as beautiful. The battery life isn’t amazing either and additional accessories can be quite pricey.

The Design:

The X1 still offers a slick looking design that screams business tablet. It’s not all looks though as the magnesium chassis is military spec tested (MIL-STD 810G) so the X1 can cope with a bit of overzealous handling far better than others. The keyboard is bar far best in class though and is one of the best tablet keyboards we have used.


Lenovo improved on their X1 Gen 1 tablet and delivered the X2, which from the outset appears to be every bit a business professional’s best friend, which it very much is but shouldn’t be disregarded for home or educational use.

Arrived promptly. Great screen and accompanying keyboard. It is quite light and easy to use. Screen has an enclosed stand at back which pits it at a good angle for reading. Still learning but seems a good bit of kit.
