The latest generation of ThinkPad X13, X13 Yoga, L13, L13 Yoga, L14, and L15 models have been announced, and they’ll come with features like Dolby Voice, FHD (1080p) cameras, Wi-Fi 6E, 5G sub6, 4G LTE wireless WAN, and battery choices.

The third-generation Lenovo ThinkPad X13, X13 Yoga, L13, L13 Yoga, L14, and L15 models all come with Dolby Voice, so you’ll be able to enjoy better conferencing experiences from anywhere. Leveraging spatial audio technology, so voices are separated, Dolby Voice helps to provide a more natural meeting when using compatible services.

With Dolby Voice, you’ll also get better speaker and microphone performance because of features like dynamic leveling — which automatically adjusts for more soft spoken voices or voices that are a bit further away, and noise suppression — which reduces obnoxious background noises and echos on every meeting platform.

These laptops also come with optional FHD IR cameras with camera shutters for privacy; with them, you’ll get improved video conferencing quality and be able to add the convenience of Windows Hello login.

All of these ThinkPads include the option to upgrade to Wi-Fi 6E and 4G LTE, and the ThinkPad X13 Gen 3 offers an optional 5G sub6 for the fastest possible connections with buffer-free conferencing enabling efficient cloud collaboration.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
