Lenovo launches all-new additions to its desktop and laptop portfolio with ThinkSeries to address the needs of next-generation Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs). The brand offers growing businesses a wider selection of adaptable high-performance fixed computing solutions with remarkable technological advancement in a new era of interconnected hybrid workplaces.
In terms of business continuity, SMBs have arguably been hardest hit by the pandemic. Many continue to face challenges to adapt to the speed of digital transformation and the adoption of hybrid working models. SMBs will need to embrace digital-first business strategies for long-term value. We strongly believe that by leveraging innovative technology, enhancing collaboration, and achieving higher efficiencies through sustainability, SMBs will power the global recovery. Lenovo is listening to customers and analyzing insights to develop a core set of products to help users and businesses intelligently transform.
Desktop PCs are often better suited to specific job roles or business functions. Productivity can be improved, especially in demanding graphics applications or large datasets and form factor choices allow comfortable working environments. Cost considerations can make desktops a smarter investment choice with a more affordable initial purchase and easier maintenance and management.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is powered by Intel vPro with 12th Gen Intel Core processors running Windows 11. A key design feature is the new communications bar that integrates improved FHD webcam options, Privacy Shutter, and 360-degree far field quad-array microphones. The bar design allows a camera with a larger sensor than what is usually found on laptops. The 1.4µm sensor increases image quality, especially in low light conditions.
The new Computer Vision technology available in select models of the latest ThinkPad X1’s uses a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that generates metadata from the integrated camera-based on known recognition and AI algorithm modeling. The technology offers smarter Human Presence Detection that recognizes humans and their intention to use the PC, adding an additional layer of convenience. It even works when the user is wearing a protective face mask.
The laptop comes with up to 15 hours of battery life — along with RapidCharge technology. It is lightweight, weighing less than 1.13 kg.
The ThinkCentre Neo offers a stylish and minimalist design for a contemporary look with a new terrazzo color and material finish. It also comes with Lenovo’s ocean-bound plastic packaging and eco-friendly design using post-consumer recycled content and paint-free raw materials. There are three models in the neo range, all powered by 12th Gen Intel Core processors: ThinkCentre 50s, ThinkCentre 50t, ThinkCentre Neo 30a 22, and Thinkcentre 30a 24.
ThinkCentre neo 50s is a small form factor desktop designed to provide performance and space savings in a 7.4-liter case. EPEAT Gold is certified for energy efficiency and Intelligent Cooling Engine 5.0 ensures the desktop runs with optimal power consumption. TÜV-certified Ultra-Low Noise (ULN) and packaging made from ocean-bound plastic, as well as raw materials that are painting-free, promise quiet performance and environmental friendliness.
The ThinkCentre Neo 50t tower is ideal for growing businesses with its clean and minimalist design. The desktop PC can tackle high-performance workloads with a 12th Gen Intel Core processor alongside a multitude of connectivity options.
Finally, the ThinkCentre neo 30a 22 is an All-in-One with a 22-inch display. This business PC comes with 12th Gen Intel Core processing, with smart, AI-based features to enhance productivity.
Meanwhile, the ThinkCentre neo 30a 24 is a collaborative all-in-one (AIO) desktop with a 23.8-inch FHD 16:9 WVA (Wide Viewing Angle) display, audio by Harman, and a retractable webcam. It also features the Lenovo Smart Appearance, which enhances facial features and blurs the background for professional-grade video conferencing.
ThinkBook 14S Yoga
The ThinkBook 14S Yoga features dual-tone color highlights, an anodized aluminum exterior, and four-side narrow bezels. It is equipped with smart innovative technologies and high-performance features that offer an elevated user experience in productivity, collaboration, and security. It has multiple modes which mean the 14s Yoga can adapt to user needs and optimize workflow, with powerful computing options, vivid displays, and state-of-the-art components.
The combination of 12th Gen Intel Core processors, up to Windows 11 Pro, fast SSD storage, Intel Thunderbolt 4, and Intel Wi-Fi 6E connectivity aim to offer unparalleled efficiencies to help users handle demanding workloads locally or in the cloud.
