As you might expect from a ThinkPad device, it’s also got lots of power under the hood with up to Core i7 vPro quad-core 11th-gen processors from Intel with Xe integrated graphics.
The vPro is aimed at business users and the X12 is also Microsoft Teams certified.
The ThinkPad X12 supports Thunderbolt 4, although not many other ports with one USB-C 3.2, a NanoSIM slot and headphone jack.
While the X12 is more expensive than the £799 Surface Pro 7, Lenovo importantly includes the detachable Folio keyboard which offers a full-size backlit keyboard, the iconic ThinkPad nipple mouse stick and a fingerprint scanner.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable is expected to be available from January 2021, starting at US$1,149.
