Bhubaneswar: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 series has been upgraded with the addition of the updated ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga. Both laptops have Intel’s 10th generation “Ice Lake” processors and up to 16GB of RAM. But these aren’t the actual USPs. Instead, the updated ThinkPad X1 models come with the ability to include Lenovo’s PrivacyGuard technology that would attract customers by letting them prevent screens from prying eyes. The latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga are also touted to have Mil-Spec tested build quality and include features such as Dolby Atmos audio and optional Dolby Vision supported displays.
Similar to the Sure View display technology offered by HP, the PrivacyGuard technology on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 8) and ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 5) is designed to let users hide the on-screen content from people around them. Users can configure the laptops with a new 500-nit panel that supports the proprietary technology. Further, there is a PrivacyAlert feature on the updated ThinkPad X1 Yoga that warns users if anyone is looking at their screen and turns on the PrivacyGuard feature.
