Good For: Yoga, meet X1. I have been using Thinkpad Yogas as my primary machine for over 6 years now. This year, our IT department has switched us to the higher end X1 version of the Yoga form factor. The X1 difference is immediately noticeable, with a higher definition 14" touch screen that runs much closer to the edge, offering more screen space without increasing the unit's overall size. I've never enjoyed watching videos on a laptop this much. Thinkpads have had a high standard of durability over the years, and I anticipate that the newer aluminum housing found in the X1 will continue that tradition, but with a more premium feeling to it.
Compromises: The built-in SD card reader has been removed in the X1, but the cheaper X13 Yoga still has it. This is relatively insignificant compared to the other X1 upgrades, however. The Insert key has been re-inserted into the keyboard, but this is a chanage that I've dealt with before.
Overall reaction - Two thumbs Up: Lenovo has done a good job of keeping the Yoga updated. Many of the improvements over the old Yoga 260 this replaces are shared across the entire Yoga line, such as the physical camera shutter and the USB-C power adapter. The speakers have great stereo projection, and are noticeably louder and should handle noisy environments better, but they still have the narrow response range that you find in almost all laptops.
