Ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, Lenovo has announced a slew of new devices. The newly updated laptop lineup from Lenovo includes ThinkPad X, T, and L Series, along with a new docking station and monitors. All the new laptop models come powered by Intel‘s 8th-generation processors.
The new ThinkPad X series consists of X280 and X380 Yoga. The Lenovo ThinkPad X380 Yoga convertible comes with a 13.3-inch Full HD touchscreen display and a 360-degree hinge. It is powered by up to Core i7 processor with vPro tech, 16GB RAM and up to 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage. It has a battery life of up to 13.6 hours, claims that company. The device also supports rapid-charge which can top up the battery to around 80% in an hour.
On the other hand, the ThinkPad X280 has almost similar core specifications as the X380 Yoga. However, the SSD isn’t of the NVMe variety. It offers a battery life of up to 13 hours. According to the company, the device is 20% lighter and 15% thinner than its predecessor. It weighs 1.16kg and measures 17.4mm in thickness.
Lenovo has also upgraded its T series with new ThinkPad T480, T480s and T580 devices. The company described this series as the “corporate workhorse.” It features an IR camera, a fingerprint reader, and the ThinkShutter Camera Privacy.
All of these models packs up to 8th-gen Core i7 processors with vPro. The T580 model also has an option to include a 4K UHD display. According to the company, some models in the series can also be equipped with dual batteries (32Wh and 72Wh) for up to 27 hours of battery life.
The pricing for the ThinkPad T480 starts at $989, the T480s starts at $1,269, and the T580 starts at $1,079. All these models will be available for purchase from January.
The Lenovo ThinkPad L series is also getting four new models — ThinkPad L380, ThinkPad L380 Yoga, ThinkPad L480, and the ThinkPad L580. They feature a lighter form factor and thinner bodies, along with optional multi-touch displays and docking solutions.
The L-series devices won’t be available until February. In terms of pricing, they’re less expensive compared to the ThinkPad T series. The ThinkPad L380 Yoga starts at $549, the L380 starting at $449, the L480 starting at $779, and the L580 starting at $769.
The Lenovo ThinkPad L380 comes with a 13.3-inch Full HD screen and can be specified with up to Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM, and up to 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD. The ThinkPad L380 Yoga is a convertible with similar specifications to the L380. It is claimed to come with 12 hours of battery life.
On the other hand, the ThinkPad L480 and L580 models come with a 14-inch and 15-inch display respectively. They pack same core specifications as L380 but there is an option to add a second drive – a hard disk of up to 1TB or 2TB capacity, respectively.
Lenovo also unveiled a new tablet — the Lenovo Tablet 10. It packs an Intel Celeron N Series processor, a fingerprint reader, and a battery that can last for about nine hours on single charge. It comes with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to better protect business assets, according to the company.
The company has also shown some new monitors. The ThinkVision P32u is a 32-inch IPS monitor with a 4K resolution that delivers 99.5% coverage of the AdobeRGB colour gamut. Another one is ThinkVision X24 that has a 23.8-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. It is super-sleek in terms of an ‘infinity screen’ with a 1.1mm bezel, while the display itself is just 4mm thick.
