Lenovo ThinkPads are well-known and well-regarded work machines, but that doesn’t mean they lack fancy features. In the latest series of updates to the ThinkPad series, Lenovo has added human detection and a fingerprint reader in the power button to its popular T1
Sometimes boring is a good thing, especially when you’re looking for a laptop that does all things and lasts as long as you need it. That’s where Lenovo ThinkPads come into play. While the X1 Extreme model earns its name, the other ThinkPads are more likely to earn a place in your work life or even in the everyday life of drivers.
So it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for the latest updates to the ThinkPad line. Lenovo has surpassed specifications across the board to embrace the latest processors, both Intel and AMD, better monitors and Wi-Fi 6. The latter specification makes the laptops future-proof; as your Wi-Fi gets faster, Lenovo laptops will keep up.
But the T14s, X13, X13 Yoga updates offer the most interesting new features. They keep the same standard look as the previous models, although the X13 and X13 Yoga go to a 16:10 aspect ratio. On the way they pick up human presence detection. When you approach the laptop, it automatically wakes up to get to work that much faster.
They also come with a fingerprint reader that doubles as a power button, a pretty handy feature for anyone who prefers fingerprints over face unlock (especially while wearing a mask). And when you need the power, the T Series laptops have an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX450 graphics card add-on.
Intel-powered ThinkPad T14s will be available in March starting at $ 1,499, while AMD-powered T14s will arrive in May for $ 1,279. The Intel-powered X13 Yoga will be out in April for $ 1,379, while the AMD version of the X13 will be out in May for $ 1,139.
