Our ThinkPad X1 Yoga came in a cardboard shipping box with both the X1 and ThinkPad logos on it. Opening it up there us a smaller box inside which is protected by two large pieces of foam.
The smaller box inside is black and has the same ThinkPad and Xl logos on it. The top comes off and sort of opens up like a large book to reveal your laptop. Definitely a cool unboxing experience compared to other laptops we’ve reviewed in the past.
Besides the X1 Yoga you’ll also find a power cable and power adapter, user’s guide, setup guide, and warranty guide.
