Lenovo's OLED ThinkPad X1 Extreme is now available

First announced in May, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 became available in late July. But as many people noticed, the model with an Intel Core i9-9980H processor and 4K OLED display was missing; that is, until now. The top-end model starts at $4,499 and will run you $3,149.30 with instant savings (Lenovo ThinkPads are never the actual full price on Lenovo.com), and it also comes with 32GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM, a 1TB SSD M.2 PCIe-NVMe, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU.

The even better news is that if you don't want to shell out that kind of cash on the pre-configured model, ThinkPads are fully customizable. The cheapest you can get the OLED display for is $1,966.30 ($2,809 before instant savings), and that comes with a Core i5-9300H, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Bump it up to a Core i9 and it's $2,550.10 ($3,643 before instant savings) with the same RAM and storage.

The new ThinkPad X1 Extreme has Dolby Atmos audio, which when combined with HDR and OLED, should make for a terrific media consumption experience. Of course, that also makes it great for things like video editing, something that can also make use of the beefy 45W octa-core Core i9 and the GTX 1650 GPU.
