Today, Lenovo announced the ThinkBook brand, its new lineup of business laptops. Basically, it's for those that might have considered a ThinkPad but want something that's more mainstream. In other words, there's no carbon fiber body on these, no TrackPoint, no physical buttons above the trackpad, and so on.
The two models announced today are the ThinkBook 13s and ThinkBook 14s; unsurprisingly, they're similar devices but with 13.3- and 14-inch 1080p displays, respectively. The new clamshell laptops are made of aluminum, packing Intel Whiskey Lake processors and an AMD Radeon 540X with 2GB GDDR5.
They have an almost 80% screen-to-body ratio, and they still include some of the Think PC features that businesses might want, such as a privacy guard on the camera and Skype hot keys. They also have an anti-spill design that can handle up to 60cc of liquid.
The 13s and 14s are 15.9mm and 16.5mm thin, respectively, and they weigh in at 3.09 and 3.3 pounds, so they're pretty light and easy to carry around. The power button has a fingerprint sensor in it, and like laptops made by Huawei and LG, it will scan your fingerprint when you boot up the PC, rather than having to go back when the lock screen comes up.
Both the ThinkBook 13s and ThinkBook 14s will be available later this month, starting at $729 and $749, respectively.
