Lenovo has unveiled the 2014 version of the ultimate Thinkpad ultrabook, X1 at the CES 2014 that is being held in Las Vegas, USA. So, what has changed compared to the 2013 model?
The CPU has been updated to the fourth generation Core i-series processor and casing design have also been overhauled. Starting screen resolution is HD+ (1,600 × 900 dots), but you can equip it with up to ultra high resolution too (2,560 × 1,440 pixels).
Weight has also been reduced from 1.36 kilograms to 1.31 (2013 vs 2014). However, the biggest difference is use of programmable keys that replace the F1 – F12 keys. All functions of the top row are now reprogrammable.
Lenovo bundles a software that lets you modify the commands.
Trackpad is also larger compared to yesteryear’s model.
Like the Lenovo X240, which is also a ThinkPad, the display of X1 2014 can be opened 180 degrees.
