Lenovo Announces New ThinkBooks and ThinkPads, Plus Pre-Orders on the World’s First Foldable PC, the ThinkPad X1 Fold!

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means — Lenovo has a new crop of updated laptops and accessories to get you through the long, quarantined winter ahead. Dive in as we look at what’s new in ThinkBooks and ThinkPads, plus some incentive to save your pennies for the world’s first foldable PC, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold!

Lenovo ThinkBook 13 Gen 2

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13 Gen 2 is a thin and light laptop, coming in at 2.77 pounds and ultra-thin bezels. You also get Dolby Vision, a metal chassis, all-day battery life, 11th-gen Intel processors, and of course, USB-C. Also, it offers “modern standby,” where emails and messages come in even with the lid closed, and you can even play music with it closed! Look for it this fall, starting at $729.

Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga

The Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga is the first ThinkBook to get Yoga-fied, and it comes with all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from these flexible Lenovos. There’s a Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen, USB-C, SSD for fast storage, a garaged stylus for easy note-taking, Dolby Vision, and an AI-enhanced Intel i7 Core processor. All that, plus the ability to flip around in tablet form like all Yoga Lenovo devices. Snag one this fall, starting at $879.

Lenovo ThinkBook 15s Gen 2

In addition to up to 2TB of SSD storage and up to 40GB in expandable memory options, the Lenovo ThinkBook 15s Gen 2 also offers integrated Bluetooth earbuds right in the Versa bay, so you’ll never be far from a pair of buds to listen to music or quietly take a conference call. ThinkBook 15s also includes modern standby so that you can have the headphones in and rock out to your music with the lid down! If that sounds like it belongs in your gear bag, look for ThinkBook 15s this fall, starting at $549.

Lenovo ThinkVision T27hv

It’s hard to get excited about a monitor, but the Lenovo ThinkVision T27hv is a brilliant monitor. It has noise-canceling mics to make conference calls clearer, features “Smart Guard” that blurs your screen if you walk away, and it even has a red light to alert people you’re on a conference call. That last one sounds excellent for offices, but if I were to try to use that at home, my child would probably see it as a beacon that this was the precise moment he needed to come to ask me for a snack or tell me all about the latest developments in the world of Pokemon (yes, he did once video-bomb a meeting for that express purpose). If your monitor needs to work smarter, look for the ThinkVision T27hv starting at $549.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano is one of the first laptops to use Intel’s EVO platform. Lenovo promises it will combine performance, incredible graphics, and long battery life in one lightweight package. Lenovo says it comes in at under 1kg, so you’re looking at less than 2.2lbs for a powerful 13in laptop, which is impressive! You’ve also got Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos Speakers, and AI-powered security as well as biometric login. All this power starts at $1,399!

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold

You’ve seen folding phones, but the real benefit is in folding computers, and Lenovo is offering it in the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, the world’s first foldable PC. It can be used as a tablet or as a laptop with a Bluetooth keyboard, and it runs full Windows 10 Pro, so you’re getting an authentic computer experience. It also supports the Active Pen for note-taking and even has optional 5G for real on the go connectivity. ThinkPad X1 Fold is coming soon for preorder starting at $2,499, but you’ll want to budget for accessories like the easel stand and Bluetooth keyboard for the full experience!
