The 12-inch Windows tablet, powered by an Intel Core m7 processor, works with modules that you can attach to the bottom. The ‘Presenter’ module lets you project a 60-inch display on a nearby wall; the ‘Productivity’ module adds USB 3.0 and HDMI ports, as well as an additional five hours of battery life; another module packs Intel RealSense 3D cameras that let you scan objects for working with 3D modeling software and printers.

The X1 comes with a 2,160 x 1,440-pixel display, USB Type-C ports and optional 1TB hard drive and LTE support. It also has a kickstand and a full ThinkPad keyboard with a TrackPoint and trackpad, and works with a $50 stylus as well.

It’ll hit shelves in February with an $899 price tag; The Productivity and 3D Imaging modules will retail at $149 each, while the Projector module will be available at $279 in May.

While the idea of a modular tablet sounds intriguing, you’ll probably want to try it before buying.
