Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 is a refinement of the best 2-in-1 laptop for business users. Swapping the engine for 11th Gen Intel chips adds considerably faster performance. The battery life upgrade is even more enticing; the Gen 6 model lasts for nearly 15 hours on a charge.

The new ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 is a big update with a new chassis, faster processor, and the return of a 16:10 touchscreen, which is also matte. Lenovo uses a completely redesigned aluminum chassis for the X1 yoga G6 in the color Strom Grey. Our test unit is an education model with a matte Full-HD touchscreen, i7 CPU, 32 GB RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD for 1849 Euros (without Windows)

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 is our favorite business-focused convertible notebook. Its taller 16:10 screen, second-to-none input devices, and siloed pen are truly what elevate it. It doesn't sacrifice keyboard feel like the X1 Titanium Yoga does, and it offers superior build quality.

  • Bright 16:10 display
  • Long battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Thick bezels
