CES 2018: ThinkPad X380 Yoga

The ThinkPad X380 Yoga is the successor to the ThinkPad 370 Yoga. Lenovo decided to merge the ThinkPad Yoga 260 and ThinkPad Yoga 460 with Kaby Lake into a single ThinkPad Yoga 370.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 6 isn’t going through many changes this year. The obvious change you can expect with Intel Kaby Lake Refresh is the introduction of 15W TDP quad core processors.
