Ultimately, Lenovo wants to broaden the definition of laptops in the ThinkPad range and extend it to other environments. In this way, we not only find the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, we are also presented with the ThinkPad X12 Detachable. If the former used the versatility of the Yoga range, this device goes even further and competes with Microsoft’s Surface Pro.
The ThinkPad X12 Detachable is a professional computer on which you can put or remove the keyboard, depending on whether you want to use it as a tablet or as a laptop. The keyboard stands out by retaining the characteristic elements of the range, including the touchpad and TrackPoint.

The best of ThinkPad and Surface Pro in one device
The Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable has a 12.3-inch display, with a 3: 2 aspect ratio that performs so well in productivity-focused teams. As we can see, in this aspect it is the same as Surface Pro 7+. The difference, however, is in the resolution, which is slightly higher than FullHD.
Under the screen protected by Gorilla Glass 5, we find the new generation Intel Core vPro processors. Among the different variants, we can choose up to an Intel Core i7 vPro with integrated Iris Xe graphics. The processor is accompanied by up to 16 GB of RAM, which will improve the performance of Intel graphics.
In terms of connectivity, there is a Thunderbolt 4 port which allows us to extend the possibilities of the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable. In addition, we have a USB-C 3.2 and a NanoSIM slot for 4G connectivity.
Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable provides comprehensive business security
The equipment is one of the best in terms of commercial security, not just physical, where it meets the MIL-SPEC 810G military specification. In addition, it has dTPM 2.0 to store the keys that Windows Hello generates using the PIN code, the fingerprint reader and the infrared camera for facial recognition.
Like the Surface Pro 7, the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable has a dual stereo microphone and a 5 megapixel camera to deliver the best quality in video calls. Working on the go, as we have indicated, will be possible thanks to Qualcomm’s 4G connection, while we maintain WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
Regarding the availability of the device, we can start purchasing it during this month of January. The price isn’t too high considering its competition within that same form factor, starting at $ 1,149.
