Security (kensington) slot for THINKPAD X1 CARBON (5TH GEN) or THINKPAD X1 YOGA (2ND GEN)?

Hello,

 

I am looking for a laptop which can be securely attached/locked (so that I can let it during the night in the office).

 

Could you please tell me if the following laptops have a security slot (Kensington or similar) to attach it somewhere?

THINKPAD X1 CARBON (5TH GEN)

THINKPAD X1 YOGA (2ND GEN)

 

I do not find it described in the specifications, but from the available pictures, it seems that they have some kind of security slot.

 

Thanks!

Hello and welcome,

 

The user's guides can help with that.  Have a look at the right side views.

Many people use Kensington locks.  When I worked in a big office, I used one myself.  I still removed the lock and locked the laptop in my desk and out of sight, after I watched these videos:

Great, thanks! I confirm to anybody having the same doubt that both laptops do have a security slot.
