Lenovo is expanding the X1 line beyond Carbon to Yoga and now also to tablets. At CES 2016 the company announced its ThinkPad X1 tablet, which is aimed at enterprise users who are looking for a full PC in a 12-inch tablet form factor. With this, Lenovo has a few tricks up its sleeves that make the tablet a little more interesting than what meets the eye.
First up, you've got Intel's new Skylake Core M processor, the same type of processor you find in the entry-level Surface Pro 4. This allows the tablet to work without a fan, and allows them to skip the Intel Atom processor. The 12-inch display has a resolution of 2160x1440, and at its 3:2 aspect ration it makes for a great notepad.
In addition, you'll see a USB Type-C port, USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort, microSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The tablet also has a built-in kickstand, so you can prop it up when you are using it in a single location. Lenovo will be selling an optional keyboard attachment, as well as the option to add a 3D Intel RealSense camera.
Look for the ThinkPad X1 Tablet to hit store shelves in February starting at $899. The RealSense module will be available in May for $149. The extended battery module will also cost $149 while the projector will cost $279.
