Perfect size: The notebook is the perfect size and weight for personal use and business use. It's a really well-balanced notebook that isn't hard to store in smaller bags, and it's extremely thin.
Type-C charger: The type-C charger is something I wish more vendors would incorporate. It's great because you can use it to charge your phone and theoretically you could hook it up to other Thunderbolt devices and transfer power other ways.
More true tablet mode: I love the mechanism that pulls the keys on the keyboard into the notebook when you flip the screen into tablet mode. It makes it feel much more like a tablet. One other cool thing is the integrated pen, which recharges and allows you to right and left click.
Small things: There are a few things that I didn't like by default. I don't like how they positioned the touchpad keys above the touchpad, or that by default Function keys are secondary while they have reversed the position of the Fn and Ctrl keys. You can change the latter two through their software.
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga Pro is well designed, well-built successor to the previous generation ThinkPad X1 Yogas we have reviewed. While you won't be gaming with this machine or rendering tons of content, everything else is pretty seamless, and while it doesn't have a metal unibody, we found construction to be solid.
The notebook is also loaded with features such as dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, fingerprint reader, SIM card slot, and it still maintains features such as HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports. We really enjoyed this versatile machine, and think it would make a perfect notebook for any business executive, student, or anyone who wants a solid notebook that can convert into a truer tablet.

The Bottom Line: With its profound ability to actually feel more like a tablet than other 2-in-1s, the well-equipped ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a versatile machine at a reasonable price.
