You’ll enjoy increased brightness, expanded contrast, amazingly accurate colors, and refined detail.

It’s plug-and-play ready for the leading VR/MR headsets, including Oculus Rift. Whether you’re creating content, gaming, traveling the world from your armchair, or streaming videos, you can do it all without lag time. Add a pen into the mix on touchscreen models for sketching, annotating, signing, creating—all of which make working on this X1 Extreme (Gen 1) even more fun!
Listens to your every word
With Cortana Premium, you can speak commands to your X1 Extreme (Gen 1) from across the room. The integrated 360-degree far-field microphones ensure your voice carries its weight.

Built to go on and on. And on.
Like all ThinkPads, the X1 Extreme (Gen 1) is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. Our ThinkPads undergo some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase a one. From the arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way.
Go from 0 to 80 in 60
The X1 Extreme (Gen 1) delivers up to 15 hours of battery life. And if you’re running low, rapid-charge technology provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery up to 12 hours. What more could you need for life on the go?
* Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.
Move data between the X1 Extreme (Gen 1) and your other devices quickly with USB-C Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, which simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices. These ports don’t just transfer and display—they’re powerful enough to actually run the whole system.
How many is too many?
The X1 Extreme (Gen 1) supports up to four independent displays—making working with complex computations, day trading, or analyzing big data a cinch. What's more, the optional IR camera includes Glance technology, which merges face-, eye-, and gaze-tracking. That means the cursor automatically focuses and windows shift with just a move of your eyes! You'll enjoy a more intuitive and productive interaction, especially when displaying on multiple monitors.show Moreless
