Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Big Keyboard
It's not one of those usual laptop keyboards where a lot of keys are either missing or only accessible via function key. Most of the keys are located where you'd expect them to be and it even has a numpad. Nice little detail: In the lower left, there's actually the Ctrl key, and not one of those Fn keys.
Pro Wide Screen
1920 x 1080 pixels provide quite some space for your IDE.
Pro Good Performance
"Good" meaning good enough for game development. There's a decent video card, decent CPU power and more RAM than I've needed yet. There are even some above-average speakers (if you need them), compared to other laptops.
Pro Excellent keyboard and navigation
Pro Amazing OLED display that takes watching videos and looking at images to another level
This PC's OLED display has bold colors, deep contrast and pitch black levels. This creates a nice three dimensional effect that takes watching videos and looking at images to another level.
Pro Battery charging is fast
This PC comes with a 65-Watt AC adapter, which makes the battery charging process to be quite fast. In fact, it can completely charge its drained battery in under 2 hours. This partially mitigates the negative effects of the average battery life.
Con Pre-installed Software
When ordered with a Windows OS, there is a LOT of pre-installed software, most of which unwanted.
Costing over $2,000, this PC is quite expensive. Going for the LED version, rather than the OLED, means saving a considerable amount.
Con Average battery life
The Thinkpad X1 Yoga OLED has an average battery life. It lasts around 8.5 hours during light usage and around 3.5 hours during more intensive use. This is mainly due to the display, since the LED version lasts around 40% more.
