All-in-one PCs don't have to be boring; the ThinkCentre X1 is living proof of that.
There are dozens of low and mid-range all-in-one PCs out there but Lenovo's new ThinkCentre X1 is anything but. Announced at CES 2016 out in Las Vegas, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was just a monitor. It's that slim.
It's part of the new look X1 family, Lenovo's highest-end Windows 10 products and it sits along side the laptop announcements as another serious option for someone looking for a powerful, yet still stylish and well built PC.
Inside that 11mm thin aluminum chassis you'll find a 23.8-inch 1920x1080 Full HD anti-glare display and up to a 6th-generation Skylake Intel Core i7 processor. This is paired with 16GB of 2333MHz DDR4 RAM and a variety of storage options. You can have a 500GB hard drive, up to a 1TB hybrid drive (SSHD), 512GB SSD or a 500GB SED/OPAL compliant self encrypting hard drive.
Facing you you'll find a 1080p-capable webcam and you're not wanting on ports with 5 x USB 3.0, an optional card reader, DisplayPort in & out combo port and LAN all present, a decent selection especially given the form factor.
The stand on the ThinkCentre X1 is also worth a mention, since it's not just a boring, functional item. As far as stands go it looks pretty nice and allows a tilt adjustment from -5 to +45 degrees for user comfort.
In terms of price you'll be looking at a starting point of $1029 and it'll be shipping beginning in March. For more from Lenovo be sure to follow our complete CES 2016 coverage.
