Lenovo has launched a family of X1 tablets that are designed for forward thinkers, fully complete with unique modular design and OLED display among other pioneering features.

The first is the ThinkPad X1 Tablet with a modular design; the second in the portfolio is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga with the first OLED display in the technology world; and the third is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon which is very thin and lighter in design.

With the ThinkPad X1 Tablet and its modular design, users can optionally add the Productivity Module which adds a total 15 hours of battery life. And when it is to be used for presentation purposes, users can add the Presenter Module which also comes with a pico projector and HDMI port. If users desire to create objects in 3D, they only need to add the 3D Imaging Module which features a rear-facing Intel RealSense camera.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga weighs only 2.8 pounds and 0.66 inches thin. Featuring an optional Samsung OLED display to reproduce very deep and rich colors, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the first convertible device within its category in the world. It has the Lift and Lock keyboard that can retract keys if the device is in tablet mode, and it also has a pen that can be used to highlight or write notes on the internet using the Microsoft Edge browser.

With the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, you have the 14 inche ultrabook that might be the lightest and thinnest in the world. Weighing only 2.6 pounds, the X1 Yoga has an improved display option, larger memory and storage, and better connectivity.

The trio of ThinkPad X1 Tablet, Yoga, and Carbon has –

• Up to 1TB high-density, low-power Samsung M.2 NVMe SSD storage offers speeds up to five times that of standard SATA SSD
• Ultra-fast enterprise class connectivity with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X7 LTE modem with 4G LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation support for up to 300 Mbps download speeds
• Fast and secure WiGig wireless docking for a cable-free desk environment
