  • MORE

Some of the best business laptops in the world are about to get a whole lot better. Starting in January, Lenovo will release new versions of its popular ThinkPad T, X200, L series and ThinkPad 13 notebooks, along with a brand new 2-in-1, the 13-inch ThinkPad Yoga 370. As denoted by the "7" in their model numbers, the laptops are getting the latest 7th Generation Core series processors, which provide improved performance and power-efficiency. Even better, many of the new notebooks will come with Thunderbolt 3 ports, which can be used to charge the system, send data and power multiple displays over the same cable.

To take advantage of Thunderbolt 3, Lenovo is also coming out with a series of docks and monitors that let you connect to your entire desktop setup and charge with a single connection. Here's a complete breakdown of all the new Lenovo laptops and peripherals, along with the major improvements to each.

    Well the Lenovo US site has t470, and the ONLY display available is 1366x768. Are these ppl on crack ? On a biz laptop I NEED to read text, and 768 doesn't cut it.

    It's now Feb. Is the new Thinkpad 13 going to be released soon? The original release date was January.

  • Josh L Says:

    After a hellish time with a T460s last year - more like 3 hours instead of "8 hours, 16 minutes" - we switched to Dell (Latitude E7470). While not perfect, battery runtime is far superior, and Dell hasn't be nearly the arrogant knobs that Lenovo was.

    "Wish there is a drop-down menu for readers to go directly to the model which they'd like to read about, instead of having to cycle through all ten. One. By. One." Amen.
