Lenovo Announce ThinkBook 14s, 13s, And New ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2

Lenovo started their 3 day event today by first announcing 3 new laptops, one of which can be configured with up to a 4K OLED touchscreen.

The first two are the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s and 14s, two WIndows 10 laptops that will launch now in May from $729 and $749 respectively. These are essentially slim laptops designed foremost for the SMB sector. They are powered by choices of 8th gen. Intel Core processor with 8GB/16GB of DDR4 RAM, Discrete AMD Radeon 540X GPU, and SATA SSD or PCIe SSD storage.

The screen is Full HD with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Features includes 180 degree hinges so that it can at least lay flat. Anti-spill keys, built-in camera shutter, fingerprint reader.

Starting at $1499 is the new 15.6-inch Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G2, which is expected by Lenovo to launch in July. And it has some proper capacities.

The highest processor option is a 9th gen Intel Core i9 H processor, with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM (2666 MHz), and of course you have to have some proper storage for that as well, like 4TB worth of PCIe SSD storage.

All of this information can swap location through fast Thunderbolt 3 and even Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 ax Wi-Fi). And this in a relatively light laptop even.

The screen of this Windows 10 laptop have options of Full HD with IPS AG or IPS AG HDR, or 4K IPS AG HDR or 4K OLED HDR with touch.

And for the Lenovo ThinkPad fans out there, the design is very much classic ThinkPad.
