Making an upgrade to its iconic laptop brand, the ThinkPad, Lenovo is bolstering its upcoming lineup with a powerful 8th generation processor, coupled with a weight that is significantly lighter than its predecessors.
Dubbed the ThinkPad X, T, and L, these up and coming models will sport an 8th-gen Intel Core processor and a slimmer design from the previous. If you are upgrading to a ThinkPad X280 from the previous model, expect your new laptop to be 20% lighter and 15% thinner.
Added horsepower, size, and weight are not the only offering these newer models have in store for users. For instance, the ThinkPad Yoga X360 features the Active Pen and an infrared camera which could be used for Windows Hello. On the other hand, the X280 features a rapid charging support which promises an 80% bump on the matter within just the span of 1 hour.
Meanwhile, there are also the L-series, L480, and L580, which comes with a dedicated graphics card by AMD.
Lastly, the T series features the so-called ThinkShutter webcam which promises privacy against hackers who illegitimately access the device’s camera remotely.
These latest laptops from Lenovo are expected to hit the shelves later this January and should come at a price tag of $609 for the L380, $989 for the T480, $999 for the X280, and $1,459 for the Yoga X380.
For those who don’t have demanding processing needs, Lenovo also unveiled a new 2-in-1 convertible laptop powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
