It now can achieve 600 nits of brightness, supports a wide P3 color gamut, and has an improved antireflective coating.
Lenovo's second generation ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the latest 2-in-1 tablet and laptop. It can accommodate both modes of operation with its 360-degree hinge, so the display can flip all the way around.

When you fold the display into Tablet Mode, the keyboard recesses and locks the keys, which provides a completely fat surface and eliminates accidental keyboard input. It also is available with a 14" OLED display, so it has more vibrant colors and better contrast between light and dark areas.
