The ThinkPads X1 series gets intelligent work function

The ThinkPad X1 series is among Lenovo absolutely most potent work laptop, and now three new versions of the X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga and the super lightweight X1 Nano are added to the series.

Reliability and towering performance are the hallmarks of Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 series.

At the same time, the products in the series live up to a string of military standards – and yes, they offer features in a class of their own. As usual, new models are coming in connection with this year’s CES, and this is in the form of the 10th generation of ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the 7th generation of the flexible X1 Yoga and the 2nd generation of the X1 Nano, which weighs less than 1 kg. All optimized to support hybrid forms of work with excellent cameras, 360-degree microphone systems and of course plenty of muscle and battery life.

In the same vein, the new all-in-one ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 3, a new Tiny-in-One named Tiny Flex, a 27-inch screen in the ThinkVision P series and a modular video conferencing system called Voice- over-IP Modular Stack, which houses both webcam and speaker.

Improved camera and new security features

That the new ThinkPad X1 series is particularly aimed at hybrid forms of work is revealed in a design detail. In a so-called communication bar, it is possible to get a Full HD webcam with Privacy Shutter and 360-degree microphone system with four microphones. The beam’s design provides space for a larger sensor than is normally found on other laptops, which provides better image quality even in low light.

In addition, selected models also offer a new technology called Computer Vision. The technology uses artificial intelligence to sharpen the understanding of whether the person in front of the screen intends to use the computer, or whether it is just a colleague passing by in the background in the office. The computer is therefore only woken up and unlocked when the owner is ready to work – it even works when the user is wearing a protective face mask. At the same time, the technology can save power by turning off the screen or dimming the brightness when the user is looking away.

In addition, the series offers the following highlights:

  • Performance:
    • generation of Intel Core processors with the option to choose Intel vPro, including models U15 and P28.
    • Fast LPDDR5 memory and storage space based on PCIe Gen 4.
    • New keyboard design with increased air intake on X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga, which improves cooling capacity.
  • User experience:
    • Option to select a 2.8K OLED screen for X1 Carbon and a 4K OLED screen for X1 Yoga.
    • Option to select a Full HD camera with 1.4µm camera sensor and Computer Vision technology.
  • Connections and security:
    • Wi-Fi 6E support and option to select 4G LTE or 5G sub-6 WWAN connections
    • ThinkShield Firmware Resiliency 2.0, which sharpens protection, detection and recovery processes.
    • Computer Vision makes the computer better at identifying users in front of the screen, simplifies the login process and increases security.
    • The ThinkPad X1 models support Tile, which allows users to locate their PC for up to 14 days after it has been turned off.
The desktop computer of the future is flexible

At first glance, it is new ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 3 a fairly common update of Lenovo’s premium all-in-one PC for businesses. Beneath the surface, however, it hides new features that make it easier to collaborate and work efficiently.

For video conferencing, for example, it has a tiltable camera with built-in microphones and a small speaker as standard. In addition, there is the option to expand the solution with a 360-degree microphone system with four microphones that can attenuate background noise with artificial intelligence, and a speaker system developed together with Harman.

The computer is powered by 12th generation Intel Core processors with up to an i9 processor, which is based on Intel’s vPro platform – Intel’s enterprise solution, which is recognized for high performance, high hardware security and good option for remote administration of eg a company computer fleet.

In addition, it has a 23.8-inch QHD screen and is available with up to 64GB of DDR5 memory and with a wide range of storage systems and inputs. It is also possible to select Human Presence Detection, where the computer locks itself when the user leaves the computer.

If a more modular solution is needed, then TIO Flex (Tiny-in-One) is an all-time offer. The Tiny category offers great flexibility in terms of tailoring the computer to your own needs and upgrading on an ongoing basis. Especially in combination with Lenovo’s ThinkVision screens, where you can easily mount the TIO Flex, for example.

Monitors for hybrid offices

Flexibility is also one of the benefits of the latest additions to Lenovo’s range of professional displays, the ThinkVision P27h-30 and P27q-30, both of which are 27-inch QHD displays with an almost borderless design and great color precision. They can be tilted, turned and rotated in a multitude of directions to ensure the right ergonomics, and then they have a wide range of ports. The P27h-30 offers a single-cable solution for laptops, so the screen can function as a dock with power and ethernet. This also allows you to easily switch between different input sources – eg a desktop and laptop in the home office.

Both monitors can be equipped with a solution for video conferencing. With ThinkVision VoIP Modular Stack, you get a wireless video conferencing solution with the new MC60 Monitor Webcam and MS30 Monitor Soundbar.
