The ThinkPad X1 Yoga we have uses a 256GB Samsung NVMe M.2 SSD, more specifically the Samsung MZVPV256HDGL. It is using a client version of the SM951 that supports sequential read/write speeds of 2150/1260 MB/s. Two of the SFF PCs (the DeskMini and NUC6i6KYK) are using the 950 Pro 512GB which is supposed to be faster than the SM951, that being said you won't be able to notice the difference between the two.
The super-fast storage speeds also help improve overall system responsiveness of the 2 in 1. Network speeds are what I expected. It's not the fastest Wireless AC implementation, but Wireless N is quite good.
The battery in the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a 4cell 52Wh Lithium Ion that Lenovo claims can last up to 9 hours on our OLED model, but 11 hours on non-OLED models. I believe that number to be close to realistic performance if you only lightly use the product. I was able to get the battery to last eight hours when running some benchmarks and using the device for web browsing with the screen on automatic brightness.
In worst-case scenarios through the Battery Eater benchmark or PCMark Home Battery Test, it lasted less than half that amount of time. I can say that the battery life is better than I expected, and should last most of the day without charging - it will probably last longer than your phone.
What impressed me was how quickly the unit charged up. Lenovo does provide a quick charge capability that allows 50% charge in 30 minutes, but it only took an hour and 45 minutes to charge to 100% from 5%.
