Lenovo expands ThinkBook portfolio for smaller and medium businesses and introduces lightest ThinkPad ever
Lenovo has expanded its ThinkBook portfolio with a new generation of laptops powered by Intel or AMD, built for a work-from-anywhere world. They have a dual-tone top cover and ultra-narrow display bezels built for immersive viewing experiences.
Co-engineered with Intel, the ThinkBook 13 Gen 2 i with optional WQXGA display has been tested, tuned and verified to meet the requirements of the Intel Evo platform across hardware specifications and key experience targets for device responsiveness, instant wake, battery life and fast charge . You’ll find virtual meetings enhanced with microphones that can switch between three different audio modes: private, shared and environmental sound. It is expected to be available starting at $829 in October.
The ThinkBook 15 Gen 2 i delivers speed and productivity with 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, Thunderbolt 4, long battery life and flexible storage options. It’s also available with optional integrated wireless earbuds that can be stored within the laptop. These earbuds charge automatically when stored and instantly connect to the laptop audio when taken out, and are equipped with dual mics and environmental noise cancellation. Muting or unmuting yourself during calls is as easy as a double tap on the earbuds. This laptop is expected to be available starting at $569 in October.
The ThinkBook 14s Yoga i is the first 2-in-1 ThinkBook, with the power of 11th Gen Intel Core processors. When logged into Windows 10, Windows Ink shortcuts are ready the moment you pick up the Smart Pen, which syncs with your device. Pull out the Pen in modern standby mode and the note-taking app opens automatically. It is expected to be available starting at $879 in November.
Lenovo also debuted a new ThinkVision T27hv-20 USB-C Hub monitor. The 27-inch display features a 1080p IR/RGB webcam, noise cancelling microphones and integrated speakers that help users conference with confidence. Smart Guard blurs the screen the moment you look or move away or when it detects someone peeking over your shoulder. Smart Energy will turn off the screen when it senses that you have moved away from your desk, saving power and protecting data. It is expected to start at $549 in December.
