It feels like wallets and supply chains are barely recovered from CES, but another wave of exciting announcements is headed our way from Mobile World Congress. Lenovo hasn’t skipped a beat; they are offering a slew of new ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops to keep you connected for both work and play.
Lenovo has really focused on the importance of being more sustainable in its products. They offer their CO2 offset program, use recyclable packaging, and integrate more post-consumer content (PCC) plastics in their designs.
Now, the company is aiming to integrate PCC into every computer they sell by 2025! They’re also expanding their Lenovo Commercial Vantage application to the new ThinkPad Z, X13, T, and L series, which helps expand the lifespan of the devices and can help reduce unnecessary power consumption.
There’s a lot more to the new ThinkPads, though. Let’s take a look!
Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 and ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2
The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 and ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2 will sport new AMD Radeon 700m graphics, Windows 11, and up to 2TB of SSD storage.
The ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 will also be available with an optional natural woven flax fiber material that has been bonded to the 75% recycled aluminum top cover for a sustainable and stylish look.
Both sizes will sport ultra-thin bezels and large haptic touchpads along with the TrackPoint option.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 is coming this July, starting at $1,249, while the ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2 is set to arrive in August, starting at $1,749.
Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 and X13 Yoga Gen 4
The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 and X13 Yoga Gen 4 will also sport slimmed-down bezels for a better screen-to-body ratio. They’re also going to feature Dolby Audio along with an optional 5-megapixel camera, so you’ll look and sound AMAZING on your weekly teams call.
Both computers will offer up to 13th generation Intel processors, while the regular Gen 4 will also offer AMD processors and optional Eyesafe Certified Natural Low Blue Light technology to keep your eyes from straining when you’re working late (or binge-watching Poker Face on a work trip, we won’t tell anyone).
The ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 will start at $1,099, while the ThinkPad X13 Yoga Gen 4 will start at $1,379; both will be available this May.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 4, T16 Gen 2, and T14s Gen 4
The Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 4, T16 Gen 2, and T14s Gen 4 are also going to be refreshed with the sustainability options as well as optional 5-megapixel cameras and blue light displays to protect against eye strains.
Meanwhile, the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Gen 4 and L13 Yoga Gen 4 will also offer blue light display options that will reduce battery consumption; The ThinkPad L14 Gen 4 and ThinkPad L15 Gen4 can sport up to 2TB SSD storage.
The newest Lenovo ThinkPad T series computers drop in May and will start at $1,479 for the ThinkPad T14s Gen 4, $1,239 for the ThinkPad T14, and $1,296 for the ThinkPad T16.
The ThinkPad L series is coming in April and will start at $869 for the L13, $1,099 for the L13 Yoga Gen 4, and $869 for the ThinkPad L14/L15 Gen 4.
Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 5 and ThinkPad E16
Lenovo knows reliability and eco-friendly should extend to all budgets, and that’s what’s coming for the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 5 and the all-new ThinkPad E16.
The E series will have a 90% screen-to-body ratio, bigger touchpads, Intel or AMD processors, up to 2TB of SSD, and up to 47Whr and 57Whr battery options to extend your productivity on the go.
All that lightens your workload and your wallet, with the ThinkPad E14 Gen 5 starting at $739 and the ThinkPad E16 at $759, both will be available this May.
Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One Gen 5 Monitor
One of the areas where Lenovo really shines is with modular, small desktop systems. The Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One Gen 5 Monitor can handle VoIP audio/visual, along with blue light technology and even a touchscreen with an optional stylus.
These are designed for offices and other places where space and aesthetics both matter, so the idea is that a Tiny desktop can snap right onto the back of the monitor for a modular all-in-one experience.
The monitors also support an ergonomic stand with more lift range, plus a “red light” button that lets someone walking by know the user is on a video call. That way, when your coworker Zoom bombs you, you’ll know they did it on purpose.
ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One Gen 5 Monitors will start at $274 for the 22″ and $294 for the 24″ this August.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 Chromebook
Finally, if you’re looking for a solid budget choice to keep you connected on the go, there’s the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 Chromebook. It’s a 14″ screen in a body that comes in at a svelte 2.9 pounds, with up to 13.5 hours of battery life and an FHD touchscreen. There’s also a physical shutter button for the camera, front-facing speakers from Waves MaxxAudio, and a MediaTek Kompanio 500 series processor.
The IdeaPad Slim 3 Chromebook offers plenty of power without dinging your wallet, as it will start at $340 this May.
