If you’re in the market for a portable workhorse for your creative endeavors, the 12-inch ThinkPad X1 is hard to beat. It’s small, secure, and it even offers stylus support of the detachable touchscreen. And when you buy from the PCMag Shop, you can save $150 off the sticker price.
• Lenovo ThinkPad X1 12-inch Convertible Laptop with Detachable Keyboard and Stylus for $549.99 (List price: $699.99)
In terms of specs, this model features a 12-inch 2160×1440 IPS touchscreen, a sixth generation 1.1GHz Intel Core m5-6Y57 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive, a MicroSD slot (with support for up to 64GB), vPro support, dTPM encryption, a fingerprint reader, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. And since it has a Mini DisplayPort on the side, you can easily connect to an external display as well.
With the keyboard attached, the whole shebang weighs in at just 2.35 pounds – an excellent starting point. And when you disconnect the screen from the keyboard, the tablet part weighs in at just 1.96 pounds. And since your purchase even comes with a stylus, using it in this mode is a snap.
This is the PCMag Shop’s deal of the week, so it’s only going to be available until Sunday. And since it includes a one-year Lenovo warranty, this sleek little machine is very difficult to pass up at this price.
