Lenovo launches new ThinkPad devices for professionals on the go

Top computer manufacturer Lenovo unveiled in the Philippines recently the latest additions to its ThinkPad lineup that are powered by Intel’s newest 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor. 

Known for its durability, robustness, design, and overall performance in the office, Lenovo’s newest ThinkPad devices are made for those looking for a dedicated and reliable workstation. Putting power and performance as the main priority, the ThinkPads are designed to keep up with your business, whether at home, in the office, or on the move.

According to Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan, the new ThinkPad devices are made for today’s professionals who are always on the go.

“Our work methods are faster than ever. Workplaces are being reconfigured to encourage greater collaboration as more and more employees become mobile,” Ngan said.

“To (move ahead) in this ever-growing digitized world, we need to be both flexible and agile. The new ThinkPads were developed with that in mind.”

Four ThinkPad computers were revealed at their launch in Makati City on March 15. These are the ThinkPad E470, ThinkPad T470, ThinkPad X270, and ThinkStation P410. Also unveiled at the launch were the Lenovo V310 and Lenovo Miix 510.

Throughout the development process, Lenovo focused on a customer-centric approach to build on its legacy of product excellence, while addressing the changing demands of the market.

Some of the new features in the new computers include a cleaner, premium touchpad that supports the Microsoft Precision TouchPad for a more consistent trackpad user experience, while new security features include support for Windows Hello for facial recognition login and a biometric fingerprinting sensor.

All new ThinkPad models with the Windows 10 operating system come preloaded with an optimized Microsoft Signature Image to ensure a clean and fast system, right out of the box.

Regarding color design, the four ThinkPads and the Lenovo V310 will come out in classic black, while the Miix 510 will be sold in a sleek silver color. Another visible change is the inclusion of USB Thunderbolt 3 support with a protection circuit chip attached to address incorrect power levels in the ThinkPad devices.

The ThinkPad’s noted durability remains, as every device went through rigorous testing for the Mil-SPEC 810G military standard, consisting of 10 durability tests that included humidity, low temperature, high vibration, and high altitude.

Dynamic duo: Lenovo and Intel 

Keeping things running under the hood is Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor, which promises to boost the ThinkPad’s features further, thanks to its faster processing, higher clock speed, improved graphics performance, and a more efficient architecture.

Perfect for engineers, architects, 3D animators, and other extremely demanding users, Kaby Lake’s Hyper-Threading feature allows for more efficient multitasking and performance-heavy tasks, such as 3D and video rendering. Its upgraded graphics core can also stream videos in beautiful and crisp 4K quality.

“We always strive to produce products that are innovative, game-changing, and that are always improving. It is this customer-centric purpose that we think has made the ThinkPad successful,” Ngan said.

“And what better way to create the ultimate workstation than by working together with the world’s largest chipmaker in Intel. Thanks to them, the already powerful ThinkPad has (twice) the performance,” he added.
