Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2018)

Lenovo's new ThinkPad X1 laptops join HDR and Alexa chorus

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga have always been a showcase for its latest and greatest business features, but it's outdone itself for CES 2018 and you don't have to look hard to see the improvements. 

Both the new sixth-gen X1 Carbon laptop and third-gen X1 Yoga have WQHD-resolution 14-inch displays (2,560x1,440 pixels) with 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut, brightness up to 500 nits and, pending a future update, support for Dolby Vision HDR for greater brightness, contrast and color palette. For business travelers who spend more time watching Netflix on a laptop than a TV, HDR could really improve your experience.  

Then there are the new 360-degree far-field mics that not only allow you to wake the PCs, but take advantage of Amazon Alexa services so you can shop, search and control your life anywhere you are with your laptop. Plus, built into the thin displays are webcams that have been fitted with new physical shutters to block the cameras on each system with just a simple slider.
