There are new Lenovo ThinkPads, just in time for you to get your tax refund and justify that urge for a new shiny upgrade! There’s a lot here, so brace your wallet and get ready. Even better, you can feel good about upgrading to a new computer since Lenovo has been aggressively targetting reducing their environmental footprint, lowering it by 92% relative to 10 years ago. On to the good stuff, the gear!
Lenovo ThinkPad T Series
The Lenovo ThinkPad T series is extremely flexible with a tremendous number of configuration options. Lenovo specifically mentions many healthcare configurations, including antimicrobial surface treatments and extra privacy options with an RFID reader and Privacy Guard displays. However, with a global pandemic making us all germaphobic, anti-microbial sounds pretty good even if you’re using it in your own home!
If you’re an Intel fan, the ThinkPad T14s i, T14 i, and T15 all have 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, while the ThinkPad T14s and T14 use AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. No matter which you choose, you’ve got Dolby Vision, Dolby Audio, optional 5G integration, ThinkShield security features, and a 14in UHD HDR or 15.6 UHD HDR screen.
ThinkPad T14s i, ThinkPad T14 i, and Thinkpad T15 are out in March 2021, starting at $1,379, while the T14s and T14 are out in May 2021 starting at $1,159.
Lenovo ThinkPad X13/X13 Yoga series
Just like with the T series, the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 comes in multiple flavors. The ThinkPad X13 i and X13 Yoga use 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, while the ThinkPad X13 uses the AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. X13 Yoga obviously has some extra flexibility, as indicated by the name, but otherwise, the entire X series offers a menu of phenomenal choices across the board.
The screens can go up to 13.3 WQXGA 16:10 aspect ratio with Low Blue Light technology, so you won’t burn your eyes out browsing Reddit at 4 am, optional 5G, up to FHD Hybrid IR webcams, Dolby Audio, and ThinkShield security features, which include Human Presence Detection on the Intel Models, so your cat can’t troll your boss by impersonating you.
ThinkPad X13 i is out in March 2021 starting at $1,299, ThinkPad X13 Yoga is out in April starting at $1,379, and ThinkPad X13 is out in May starting at $1,139.
Lenovo ThinkPad L14 and L15
The Lenovo ThinkPad L series is designed to be kind to both your wallet and your desire for amazing tech, and the new L14 and L15 continue in that tradition. ThinkPad L14 i and L15 i are powered by 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, while the ThinkPad L14 and L15 are powered by AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors.
Either way, you’ve got up to 14″ or 15″ FHD displays, an HD or HD Hybrid IR webcam, Dolby Audio, and ThinkShield security like Match-on-Chip Fingerprint readers. Look for the L14/L15 series out this May, starting at $689.
Lenovo ThinkPad P Series
The Lenovo ThinkPad P series is all about heavy lifting on the go-Lenovo specifically cites their ability to run AutoCAD LT, Autodesk Revit, and SolidWorks, as well as X-Rite factory color calibration, so you can get creative wherever you are!
The ThinkPad P14s, P14s i, and P15s come with either 11th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA T500 graphics or AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile processors with integrated AMD Radeon Graphics. They also offer up to 14″ UHD HDR Dolby Vision 500nit or 15.6″ UHD HDR Dolby Vision 600nit and Dolby Audio Speaker Systems.
ThinkPad P14s i and ThinkPad P15s are out this March starting at $1,389, while the ThinkPad P14s is out in May starting at $1,169.
Lenovo ThinkVision P40w Monitor series
The ThinkVision P40w offers a jaw-dropping 39.7″ display, a 21:9 aspect ratio, and WUHD resolution, all with Natural Low Blue Light technology and a TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe Display Certification, so your eyes won’t hurt from using it. It will also have up to 12 ports, including 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports and 100w charging.
Looking for even more? The ThinkVision P40w-20 is Intel AMT capable (meaning someone can remote in even while the computer is off for IT support!). It has eKVM to run multiple computers off one monitor; it also has True Split, which lets you view both sources simultaneously. You get the same 39.7″ IPS display and an array of ports as well! Look for the ThinkVision P40w series in June 2021, starting at $1,699.
