Lenovo announced several new laptops on 24th of February 2020, including devices from its T, X, and L series of devices. The devices feature modern features, including Wake on Voice, Modern Standby, Wi-Fi 6, Dolby Audio Speaker System and Dolby Vision. Some features, such as Modern Standby, are only available on the X and T series laptops. The X13, T14S, T14, L14, and L15 also have options for AMD’s new Ryzen 4000 PRO mobile processors.
The ThinkPad L series starts at $649. The T series starts at $849. The X series starts at $849. The laptops will be available in the second Quarter of 2020.
The X series:
ThinkPad X13/X13 Yoga, something that combines portability of a laptop that is up to 16.9 mm thick and 1.3 kilogram heavy (2.85 pounds), along with the performance of Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors, for a price that starts at $849.
The new ThinkPad X13 notebooks are based on Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors with up to six cores and UHD Graphics. Depending on configuration, the laptops may be equipped with 4–32GB of DDR4 RAM as well as an up to 2TB PCIe SSD, the ThinkPad X13/X13 Yoga can be equipped with a Full-HD (for a long battery life) or an Ultra-HD OLED touch-enabled display panel.
These machines also come with Lenovo’s PrivacyGuard feature, which leverages the device’s camera to detect if someone is behind you. The device alerts or darken the display so potential snoops can’t see it from the sides.
The new ThinkPad X13 has Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, USB 3.1 Type-A, HDMI and microSD. Premium versions will also be equipped with a 4G/LTE CAT16/CAT9 modem.
The prices are $849 for an entry-level ThinkPad X13 and $1099 for an entry-level convertible ThinkPad X13 Yoga.
The T Series:
Lenovo is also updating its bestselling T series of ThinkPads. What was the T490 has become the T14 and T14s, and the T590 has become the T15. Like the X series, there’s nothing earth-shattering about them.
The machines will have 10th-Gen Intel processors, an optional 4K screen, up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage and dual far-field microphones. The T14 and T15 both come with a Nvidia Geforce MX330 GPU. You’ll see all three devices in Q2 2020 starting at $849, $1,029, and $1,079 respectively.
The L Series:
The ThinkPad L series includes a refreshed L13 and L13 Yoga, L14, and L15. These include — yes, you have guessed it right — 10th-Gen Intel processors, but also integrated graphics and dual far-field mics. The L14 and L15 have up to 2TB of HDD or 1TB PCIe SSD storage, while the L13 and L13 Yoga only offer the latter option. No Thunderbolt 3 support on these, though there is a microSD slot. The L14 and L15 also include new dedicated communication keys that will make it easier to join and leave meetings.
You can buy the L13, L13 Yoga, L14, and L15 in Q2 2020 starting at $679, $799, $649, and $649 respectively.
The T14s, T14, X13, L14, and L15 will also be available with AMD’s upcoming Ryzen Pro 4000 mobile processors, but Lenovo hasn’t announced when you can buy those variants yet.
