Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet
If one of your business goals for 2016 is to increase sales, then you will likely need to make some sales presentations. If you want those sales presentations to make a real impact, try using Lenovo's new ThinkPad X1 Tablet with a clip-on projector that attaches to the bottom edge of the tablet. Now you can easily beam your sales presentation onto an empty wall or screen instead of having your prospects huddle over your shoulders to see your tablet's display. Besides the projector add-on, the tablet features a 12-inch 2,160x1,440 IPS display (which means the screen looks good when viewed from the side), an Intel Core M processor, a new USB-C port and up to 1TB of SSD storage.
