Lenovo Announces New ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4

Available in August with a base price around $2,500

Lenovo is adding a new model to its Extreme line with the upcoming ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4, starting at around $2,500 and slated for release in August.

In a press release, Lenovo says the new Windows 10 laptop "delivers more power, better connectivity, and rich configuration options in response to customer demand." If you're looking for the best possible performance, you'll be able to go as high as an 11th Gen Intel Core i9 H-series processor with an optional Intel vPro platform.

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 includes a 4K resolution 16-inch, 16:10 Dolby Vision HDR display that offers up to 600 nit brightness. You also can add options for factory color capability, and touch and pen functions.

GPU choices include the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti, NVIDIA RTX 3060, RTX 3070, or RTX 3080. A Dolby Atmos speaker system also is included for improved entertainment value and communication clarity.

Additional features include Intel Wi-Fi 6E, as well as an optional 5G wireless WAN for internet connections, and a standard 90Wh battery offers up to 10.7 hours of unplugged use. You can choose up to 64GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs for storage.

For security, the system uses a TPM 2.0 chip, an integrated fingerprint reader, and a Kensington 12mm nano lock slot.

While ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 starts around $2,500, there is no current information on how different hardware options will affect that baseline price.
