The new X1 Yoga joins the updated X1 Carbon

Lenovo is updating its X1 Carbon ultrabook today at CES; the new models will ship with sixth-generation Skylake processors inside a thinner and lighter frame that measures 0.66 inches thick, weighs in at 2.6 pounds, and features a fingerprint reader. It runs Windows 10, of course, and will be available in February from $1,299.

But the X1 Carbon very much remains a traditional laptop, so for those who want more tablet-style functionality Lenovo is releasing a new model that takes design cues from another of the company’s product lines. The X1 Yoga is near-identical to the X1 Carbon but adds a touchscreen, stylus, and 360-degree hinge, meaning that like other Yoga products you can swing the keyboard around behind the display and use the laptop like a tablet. The keys also retract slightly into the body for a more comfortable grip.

Both the X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga can be configured to have up to Core i7 processors, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of SSD storage space, and 14-inch 1080p or 2560 x 1440 displays. The X1 Yoga also has an option for a stunning 2560 x 1440 OLED screen, which looks really impressive in person — OLED screens of this size and resolution are still fairly rare, and you might find this one’s vibrant colors and deep blacks to be well worth the $200 premium it commands over the regular LCD. The X1 Yoga is out this month starting at $1,449.

Lenovo is also expanding the X1 range with an 24-inch 1080p all-in-one called the ThinkCentre X1, a USB-C 4K monitor called the ThinkVision X1 that lets you charge your laptop and output to the display with a single cable, and a host of accessories including a wireless mouse that can be flipped over and used as a remote. The monitor ships for $799 in March and the all-in-one will be available the same month from $1029.
