Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable Review: Think Small

Lenovo is known for its high-end business laptops, but that hasn’t stopped the brand from branching out with more flexible-use case devices like the ThinkPad X1 Yoga convertible. These tend to focus a little less on high-end productivity and more on portability and note-taking convenience, while still offering enough power and professionalism over competitors to make them appropriate for a workplace setting.

Now, Lenovo is branching out even more with the ThinkPad X12 Detachable, which boasts a design reminiscent of the Microsoft Surface style tablet and magnetic folio keyboard combination. And it’s a strong effort, admirably bringing ThinkPad power and features to the detachable space.

The ThinkPad X12 Detachable does a reasonable job of resembling a clamshell ThinkPad. Most of this comes from the folio keyboard’s design, which includes the signature trackpoint nub and is remarkably similar to what you’ll find on a full-sized ThinkPad laptop. The ThinkPad logo is, of course, also on the keyboard, though it doesn’t light up.  Luckily, there’s also a ThinkPad logo on the back of the Detachable’s tablet portion that does illuminate.
