System specs-wise, it’s nothing out of the ordinary — up to an i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and 1TB of SSHD storage, the ThinkCentre X1 is par for the course. Clearly, its emphasis is on design and durability, as the all-in-one has been tested for eight hours in a dust chamber, simulating ten years in an office environment. Spoiler alert: it survived.
The ThinkCentre X1 “super slim” all-in-one comes out in March 2016 for the base price of $1,029
Lenovo says the ThinkVision X1 is the thinnest 27-inch, 4K monitor. It’s also the first monitor in the world to get TUV Eye-Comfort certification, and features full-function USB Type-C as well as USB 3.0, DisplayPort 1.2, and HDMI 2.0.
Display specifications include a contrast ratio of 1300:1, a six millisecond response time, maximum brightness of 300 nits, and a 178-degree viewing angle. The ThinkVision X1 also has two three-watt speakers and a built-in dual array microphone.
The ThinkVision X1 will go on sale this March for $799
ThinkVision X24 Pro
As a display alone, Lenovo’s ThinkVision X24 Pro doesn’t bear much significance. Sure, it’s a full 1080p borderless IPS with 1000:1 contrast and a seven millisecond response time, but it’s the integrated camera that really lets out the monitor’s sheen. That’s because the X24 Pro ships complete with an Intel RealSense 3D Camera, which allows for a better sense of depth for an array of purposes like 3D scanning and measuring distance between objects in photographs.
The ThinkVision X24 Pro bears support for Mini DisplayPort and USB Type-C with a pair of 3-watt speakers and dual array mic built on to the display. The ThinkVision X24 Pro will go on sale from May 2016 for the reasonable price of $399. An optional WiGig Bar and Wireless Charging Stand can be added for $250 and $150, respectively.
ThinkCentre-in-One II (22″ and 24″
This year’s ThinkCentre-in-One, or TIO, is once again targeting the PC building novice with a modular, easy to configure form factor. This time, both the 22-inch and 24-inch models are compatible with the second and third generation ThinkCentre Tiny, ThinkCentre Chromebox, and Thin Clients. Lenovo says the all-in-one pair “sets up in seconds” thanks to its slip-in, slip-out configurable design.
Both monitors feature 16:9 1920 x 1080 pixel displays, four USB ports, and one mini USB 2.0 accessory port as well as anti-glare technology and “touch availability.” The TIO II is set to release in April 2016, though pricing has yet to be determined.
Miix 700 Business Edition
A variant of the already release Miix 700, the Business Edition is a 12-inch 2-in-1 device with a 1440p display. It weighs in at 3.2 pounds and is .77 inches, or 19.5mm, thick with the keyboard attached.
The internals include Intel Core M processors that max out at the Core m7. RAM runs as high as 8GB, and the SATA solid state drive maxs out at 256GB.
Other key features include an Intel RealSense R200 3D camera, an Active Pen stylus, and a Trusted Platform Module chip that is used by the system’s bundled software to provide enterprise level security. The TPM chip, in fact, is the main reason why the Business Edition is distinct from the regular Miix 700.
Lenovo has not announced the price of the Miix 700, and says it will be only available to enterprise customers in February a special order.
Yoga 900 Business Edition
Another 2-in-1, albiet with a different design, the Yoga 900 has a 13.3-inch display with an impressive 3,200 x 1,800 resolution. Despite that, it actually weighs less at 2.9 pounds, and is thinner at .58 inches, or 15mm, thick.
The internals are even more impressive, as the Yoga 900 offers up to a full-fledged Core i7 mobile dual-core, up to a 512GB SATA solid state drive, and up to 16GB of memory.
While the Yoga 900 does lack the Active Pen and Intel RealSense features found on the Miix, it does retain the TPM chip, which remains the key feature. And like the Miix, this Yoga 900 Business Edition will be available in February as a special order only, at an unannounced price.
