Lenovo's refreshed ThinkPad X1 laptops squeeze in Alexa and HDR displays

ThinkPad X1 Tablet went through the MIL-SPEC testing for ruggedness and durability to withstand almost any work environment.

Lenovo has made efforts to add more functionality and safety to its new laptops' cameras in other ways as well.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Gen will be available from January 2018, starting at Dollars 1,709.

Argus 911 breaking news reporter Danielle Ferguson goes over what you should have in your auto when driving during the Winter. We project a high in the mid 60s across north and central Alabama today , about 10 degrees above average for January 10.

Under the hood, the laptop line-up, which includes a tablet version and a new Yoga 2-in-1 device, gets access to Intel's latest eighth-generation Core i processors, up to 6GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. Lenovo even added touchscreen models to the X1 Carbon. However, the most interesting additions to the new laptops are Amazon's Alexa voice assistant and support for the Dolby Vision HDR format. Lenovo calls this the ThinkShutter; users can access it by sliding a tiny switch located on the laptop near the camera.

The X1 Yoga, known for its unique retractable keyboard and integrated ThinkPad Pen Pro, takes the innovative capabilities of the X1 Carbon and places them in a convertible form.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Tablet was a noteworthy 2-in-1 in both of its previous incarnations, and the third-generation machine Lenovo is showing at CES packs some drool-worthy hardware in an all-business shell. It is the third generation X1 Yoga shares numerous capabilities of the X1 Carbon, but in a convertible form. Now, it is time to check out what the company has introduced in the premium ThinkPad X1 lineup.

Murray dismissed the research, claiming that Rhodium Group is "certainly biased" and "shills for the renewable energy industry". He said the FERC order to seek more information about resilience was "only the first step" rather than a final one.

Technically, the Lenovo Miix 630, which shouldn't be confused with the 320, 520 or 720, runs the feature-limited Windows 10 S edition that's only capable of installing Microsoft Store apps. The new 6 gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon would go on sale starting this month at a starting price of $1,709.

The ThinkPad L Series will hit the market from February 2018, at starting price $549 (approx Rs 34,946) for ThinkPad L380 Yoga, $449 (approx Rs 28,954) for L380, $779 (approx Rs 49,654) for L480 and $769 (approx Rs 48,950) for L580.

My gripe with Yoga was that the webcam didn't support infrared and hence didn't offer Windows Hello facial recognition. Like its aforementioned siblings, it is configurable with 16GB of memory and up to a 1TB SSD, but it is easily accessible due to its 13-inch tablet form-factor.

OJ Simpson finally addresses those rumours that he's Khloé Kardashian's real dad
In 2012, gossip sites said a photo of Khloe Kardashian with family hair dresser Alex Roldan proved he was her father. Finally, after years of waiting on a confirmation from Simpson, TMZ caught up with the former football running back.
