Lenovo announced today the latest additions to the ThinkPad portfolio: the new T series, X series and L series are built leveraging the core tenets of design, innovation and quality. Focused on providing a broad customer choice and a smarter workforce experience, the updated ThinkPad portfolio delivers modern IT solutions with emerging technology features to meet the needs and desires of end users. Innovations across the range include Modern Standby, Wake on Voice, WiFi 6, Dolby Audio™ Speaker System and Dolby Vision®, plus customers can optimize select models with either 10th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processors1 coming later in 2020 or the next generation AMD RyzenTM PRO 4000 Mobile processors2. Lenovo will be the first PC vendor to offer the AMD Ryzen™ PRO 4000 Mobile processors3.
These latest models reinforce Lenovo’s strategy to deliver Smarter Technology for All by evolving PC technology that delivers real value. Enhanced end user experience is provided by innovative features:
- Modern Standby4 offers a smartphone-like always-on, always-connected4 experience where the system remains connected on low power and continues to sync. Fast resume times gets users fully productive quickly and Wake on Voice4 can simplify that process further.
- WiFi 65 and up to CAT 16 WWAN6 provide super-fast connectivity options to reduce download times and ensure efficient cloud collaboration, virtually anywhere. WiFi 6 is designed to maintain optimum connection speeds on saturated wireless networks and new WPA3 security protocol makes it even harder for cybercriminals to crack passwords.
- New unified communications function keys enable rapid answer and hang up of calls.
- Premium UHD, OLED and Dolby Vision display options7 deliver brilliant visuals, and Dolby Audio Speaker System on ThinkPad T and X series or Dolby Audio on L series offer enhanced audio experiences.
- ThinkShield security solutions continue to be an integral part of ThinkPad laptops with optional PrivacyGuard ePrivacy display and PrivacyAlert on models with an IR Camera8. ThinkShutter webcam protection and fingerprint readers are also available on all models.
ThinkPad Laptops are Built to Last
A ThinkPad would not be a ThinkPad without the rigorous Mil-Spec testing9 and critical quality control criteria. Over the past fifteen years, ThinkPad has improved quality by 73% despite shipping 4.5 times more systems per year10. Lenovo continues to excel in this space supporting 22 Mil-Spec procedures9 and remains focused on quality and reliability innovations, such as Low Temperature Solder process, now entering its third year of implementation.
Premium Business Workhorse – ThinkPad T14, T14s and T15
The most successful ThinkPad series ever, the T series is the mainstay of the ThinkPad portfolio. The 14 and 15-inch models are available with Windows 10 Pro and powered by 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processors1 coming later in 2020, or AMD Ryzen™ PRO 4000 Mobile processors can be configured on ThinkPad T14s and T14. The latest models include all the innovations users would expect from a premium workhorse laptop. Modern Standby, Wake on Voice, Dolby Audio Speaker System and brighter displays with optional Dolby Vision7 support all contribute to a unique end user experience. Add state-of-the-art connectivity with WiFi 6 and optional CAT 16 WWAN6, that unique experience extends far beyond the office.
Premium Mobile Workhorse – ThinkPad X13 and X13 Yoga
Designed to echo the features of the T series in a smaller more portable package, the latest X series includes many smart PC innovations. Both X13 and X13 Yoga can be configured with an FHD 500 nit PrivacyGuard ePrivacy display with PrivacyAlert8 that helps protect users from over the shoulder glances and the X13 Yoga includes Dolby Audio Speaker System and an option for a vivid UHD OLED display with Dolby Vision.
