The lockdown has caused many of us to opt for remote working. You might not yet have a computer powerful enough to do a full day’s work at home, or one that lets you do all your classwork online. If you are looking for a laptop for work, Lenovo has a wide range of interesting computers. One of the most versatile is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 5th generation. It is a powerful laptop, with a good battery and also converts to a tablet.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the ultimate laptop for work, both in design and performance. This computer has a robust construction. It has a very strong CNC aluminum chassis, which can withstand any type of situation, including extremely high or low temperatures, small bumps, and scratches or liquid spills and splashes. The laptop has undergone more than 200 quality tests and has been tested for resistance through 12 military-level standards. You can already find it in stores for a starting price of about $1,440.
One of the most striking aspects of the design is its hinge, which has a 360-degree rotation. This allows the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 5th generation to be used as a tablet. Or, place it in different positions for better use when working. For example, during a presentation, the screen can be rotated and the computer placed on a flat surface so that the keyboard is upside down and serves as a support. It can also be used in inverted ‘V’ mode to draw or write directly on the screen thanks to the digital pen that is included. All this in a 1.35-kilogram machine.
Besides, the Lenovo ThinkPad has specific keys to facilitate the workflow. These include shortcuts to call or conversation controls. And talking about the keyboard, it’s backlit. A fingerprint scanner is also included to unlock the device.

10th Generation Processors and 16GB RAM
Lenovo laptops come in different configurations to choose the one that best suits our needs. This ThinkPad X1 Yoga 5a gen is no different. You can choose the screen quality, the amount of RAM, the hard drive, or the processor model. The screen has PrivacyGuard technology, which can decrease the viewing angle of the screen so the content to be seen only by the user.
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga panel is 14 inches. The standard versions have Full HD resolution, with 1920 by 1080 pixels and a brightness of 500 or 400 nits. The top model also has a 14″ size, but its resolution goes up to 4K. Also, with Dolby Vision and HDR technology, as well as a brightness of 500 nits.
This last model is equipped with the most powerful processor. It is a tenth-generation Intel Core i7 chip (10510U). The chip has four cores that work up to 4.90 GHz and a cache memory of 8 MB. This is completed with 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 512 GB solid-state hard drive.

All versions come with Windows 10 Pro as standard, which includes some advanced features related to security and privacy. The most important is the implementation of the Trusted Platform, a module that is dedicated to encrypting data and is combined with the Windows 10 security options to keep the files we manage on the computer safe. Also, through the infrared cameras in the most powerful model, the system can detect if any user is looking at the screen and sends a notification accordingly.
