Employees appreciate the X1 Extreme’s lightweight portability and heavyweight performance, while IT admins love it for the ThinkPad name and all that Think entails: robust security and privacy features, trusted reliability, and world-renowned craftsmanship. Global service options keep you protected, while built-in features like Mirametrix Glance eye-tracking with optional IR camera and rapid-charge technology boost your productivity levels.
Choose the low-weight, non-touch option with full HD (FHD) display on your X1 Extreme. Or go with the truly extreme Dolby Vision™ high dynamic range (HDR) technology, which features a 4K touchscreen with 100% color gamut. You’ll enjoy increased brightness, expanded contrast, amazingly accurate colors, and refined detail.
For times you need to plug in your earbuds on the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, enter a whole new world of sound. Dolby Atmos® matches the intensity of this extreme laptop with breathtaking, moving audio that seemingly flows above and around you. Feel like you’re in the front row at your favorite concert. Say goodbye forever to the pesky, low sound quality on conference calls. Or get transported onto the battlefield of the latest gaming titles.
With Intel® H Series six core processors and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX graphics, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme delivers accelerated performance for any job. It’s plug-and-play ready for the leading VR/MR headsets, including Oculus Rift or Mirage Solo. Whether you’re creating content, gaming, traveling the world from your armchair in virtual reality, or streaming videos, you can do it all without lag time. Add a stylus pen into the mix on touchscreen models for sketching, annotating, signing, creating—all of which make working on the X1 Extreme even more productively fun!
With Cortana Premium, you can let Cortana do the heavy lifting by using voice-activated commands to help complete the task at hand. Wake your laptop with a simple phrase. Quickly and easily find files and calendar events. Even put your system into standby mode to improve battery performance. The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is also outfitted with superior, built-in microphones that can pick up your voice from across the room. So go ahead and speak your mind—and boost your productivity at the same time.
Like all ThinkPads, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure the most extreme performance. Our ThinkPads undergo some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability. 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.
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme delivers up to 14 hours* of battery life. If you’re running low, Rapid Charge technology brings your laptop back up to 80% capacity in just an hour. So, a 60-minute lunch break or layover can easily boost your battery up to 12 hours. What more could you need for life on the go?

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme supports up to four independent 4K monitors, making working with complex computations, day trading, or analyzing big data a cinch. What's more, the optional IR camera includes Mirametrix Glance technology, which merges face-, eye-, and gaze-tracking, so the cursor automatically focuses and application windows shift just by moving your eyes! You'll enjoy a more intuitive and productive interaction, especially when displaying across multiple monitors.
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast data transfer up to 40Gbs to USB-C. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power. So you get Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 data transfer, and DisplayPort all rolled into one.
Data security is more important than ever. That’s why we designed the ThinkPad X1 Extreme with a range of advanced security options. ThinkShutter means you don’t have to put a sticker on your laptop camera to ensure privacy; just close it up when you’re not using it. The match-on-chip touch fingerprint reader gives you secure login without the hassle of passwords. The optional IR Camera also brings the ease of facial recognition login with Windows Hello.
