CES hasn’t officially kicked off yet, but some manufacturers just can’t wait to unveil their latest offerings. One of those is Lenovo, which has already announced its new ThinkPad X1 Tablet, a powerful portable that hopes to compete with the likes of the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4.
Despite being an iPad Pro competitor, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet runs full Windows 10, and has specifications that are more comparable to those of the MacBook. The device is powered by an Intel Core M processor, with up to 1TB of storage and up to 16GB of RAM.
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet also boasts a 2160×1440 display with 3:2 aspect ratio, and can be had with LTE connectivity. It ships with a stylus, weighs just 2.4 pounds with its keyboard attached, and offers familiar ports like HDMI and full size USB 3.0.
The keyboard also provides three viewing angles, and an additional five hours of battery life for a total of around 15 hours of use in between charges.
Lenovo is also offering a “Presenter Module” for the X1 Tablet. It snaps onto the device in the same way the keyboard does, and adds a pico projector, allowing you to display 60-inch images, videos, and presentation onto walls from 2 meters away.
A third “3D Imaging Module” uses Intel RealSense 3D camera technology to allow users to scan objects and create digital 3D images. You can see it demonstrated alongside the other add-ons in the video below.
The Presenter Module is available separately, and it’s priced at $279, while the keyboard and 3D Imaging Module are priced at $149. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet itself will start at $899, and it goes on sale in February.
