The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 has switched to a 16:10 display and the latest components from Intel and Nvidia, making for a powerful laptop that can show more of your work—as long as you’re willing to pay enterprise prices.
Sometimes, even the best ultrabooks need a bit of a rebrand. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 ($1,639.20 to start, $2,131.20 as tested) is still very much, well, a ThinkPad. But a few changes make it feel new. For instance, it now has a taller 16:10 display, making it better than ever at showing what you’re working on.
It’s also been refreshed to include the latest components from Intel and Nvidia, making it more powerful than ever.
But, as usual, business notebooks do cost a pretty penny, especially when you get into high-end parts. And if you choose this laptop, be sure not to pay the same amount of money for the configurations that will give you slightly less performance.
