Lenovo's second-gen ThinkPad X1 Extreme goes on sale today from $2,459

Lenovo announced earlier this year its second-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme, the successor to last year's 15.6-inch first-gen X1 Extreme. Today, the laptop gets an official listing on Lenovo's online storefront and it is available for a starting price of $2,459.

For that price, you get a significant boost to its internals in the form of Intel's 9th Gen Core CPUs with a max Turbo frequency of 5GHz. The processing power is coupled with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, an upgrade from the previous generation's 1050, with Lenovo claiming a 70% speed boost by comparison.

In terms of its display, the second-gen ThinkPad X1 Extreme offers two options: the FHD and 4K IPS displays as well as a 4K OLED touchscreen. It's worth noting that the latter display option will be available in the near future, as noted on the listing. The company adds that for any of the options, you get "increased brightness, expanded contrast, amazingly accurate colors, and refined detail."

Under the hood, the laptop has up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. Its battery life is also supposedly capable of lasting up to 14 hours, though it may still depend on settings, usage, and other factors.
