With up to 12th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® i9 processing, you get 14 cores and 20 threads—ensuring productivity wherever you go. Plus, the industry-leading performance of NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ discrete graphics choices ensure stunning visuals.

Stay connected from anywhere

Designed to boost productivity everywhere, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 5 supports Intel® WiFi 6E (Gig+) mobile connectivity and a lightning-fast 5G WWAN option. Plus, with a larger battery (90Wh), you can enjoy unplugged power for all-day creativity.

Should your laptop go missing

If you misplace your laptop, or worse, if someone takes it, locating your device has never been so easy. Now Tile® ready, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 5 works with your smartphone to find your device—even when your X1 is powered off. Simply subscribe to the Tile® service, and then download, set up, and activate.

See more, do more, game more for longer

The optional 165Hz refresh rate display delivers amazing colours and responsive, high-speed images per second, perfect for editing graphics or video and gaming. You can be creative or productive all day, too, thanks to the certified low blue-light panels that help decrease eye fatigue (varies by model). And the wide 115mm / 4.53″ TouchPad and 1.5mm keystrokes on the backlit ThinkPad keyboard offer extra comfort as the ideas flow.

Where form meets function

From the anti-fingerprint paint to the Smart Power On integrated match-on-chip fingerprint reader with the power button, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 5 laptop delivers on style and security. Features, like the 16:10 WQUXGA display—with or without touch, the FHD hybrid infrared camera for facial recognition login, and the carbon-fiber weave cover marry the perfect balance of function and style.

Extreme reliability you can count on

We use the US Department of Defense’s MIL-STD 810H standards to create a balance of reliability and durability for our ThinkPad laptops. We test against 12 standards and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. These tests cover harsh variables like Arctic wilderness and desert dust storms, including temperature, pressure, humidity, vibration, and more.

We take care of security so you can take care of business

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 5 laptop features ThinkShield, our built-in suite of security solutions. The match-on-chip fingerprint reader integrated with the power button encrypts your biometric data. Likewise, your critical info remains yours with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM). Plus, the Intel® Hardware Shield, exclusive to the Intel vPro® platform, integrates hardware-based PC protection.

Engineered with one eye on the planet

Even with all its productivity- and creativity-enhancing features, this ThinkPad was designed with the planet in mind. We used recycled post-consumer content (PCC), such as plastic and natural materials, including the speaker enclosure, the battery compartment, and the adapter. It also comes with recycled and/or sustainably forested packaging and recycled PCC cardboard cushioning.
