When buying a new laptop, it is important to have a clear idea: portability or power? Normally one feature excludes the other, but in recent years chip makers and manufacturers have been working constantly to create the ideal notebook, or a model that could offer a large screen and a “robust” technical equipment (typical of a gamestation or a workstation) in a very compact design. And the latest example is the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G2.

As you may have guessed from the name, this is the second generation of a laptop launched last year, compared to which it offers a complete hardware upgrade: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G2 integrates an Intel Coffee Lake-H processor (up to Core i9 octa- core), 64GB of RAM and 4TB of storage on SSD drives in the top-of-the-range SKUs, plus an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics card. The dimensions however remain the same as those of the predecessor with a frame measuring 361.8 x 245.7 x 18.4 mm, weighing 1.7 / 1.8 Kg and even has the same design.

Built for advanced users, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen2 is the ultra-portable with Windows 10 perfect for mobile users who need high performance. With enhanced entertainment features, a 15.6-inch Dolby Vision display and a Dolby Atmos speaker system, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen2 is a powerful notebook designed for heavy workloads such as video and photo editing and graphic renderings, AR / VR applications and more. And speaking of the screen, Lenovo will (at least in the USA) be able to configure its machine with one of four panels: OLED 4K HDR touch, IPS 4K HDR (500 nit), IPS Full HD HDR (500 nit) and IPS Full HD (300 nit).
