Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review: An impressive, powerful, and pricey PC (video)

Introduced at IFA 2018 earlier this year, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme certainly lives up to its name. The mobile PC packs some serious horsepower, with Intel's 8th Gen Core processors, up to 64GB of RAM, dual SSD storage, and NVIDIA GeForce 1050 Ti MaxQ graphics on board. On top of that, the screen comes in at a crisp 4K resolution with Dolby Vision HDR support.

So does it live up to the $1,900 starting price? Check out our hands-on video review above to find out.
