The ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen 2017 is now available here

If like me you are eagerly awaiting the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 (2nd Gen / Second Gen) then you will be happy to hear that a Lenovo Sales Consultant has confirmed with us that it anticipated in June 2017. They couldn’t give a specific date, but their internal Memo system clearly states June so let’s hope that transpires as it’s a wonderful Windows 2 in 1 Laptop and  “the world’s only business laptop available with an OLED display option”.
