Has produced a large number of different, From the entry-level E series all the way to the flagship X1 series. But today in what should be CES, the company launched a new product line: Z series, including Z13 and Z16.
What’s really interesting about the Z series is that it uses a brand new design, which you usually don’t see on ThinkPad.Indeed, ThinkPad is usually a VeryConservative brand.AlthoughI am really trying new things, as we have seen from ThinkPad X1 Fold and ThinkPad X1 Titanium, but most of the time it is a black rectangular design.
It uses materials such as vegan leather and aluminum, and the Z13 seen above has a bronze accent. It also comes in gray and black colors, so if you want a black ThinkPad, you can still buy it.
They are all equipped with The new Ryzen PRO 6000 processor, although it will be the U series for the 13-inch model and the H series for the 16-inch model. The larger ThinkPad Z16 also has room for dedicated AMD Radeon graphics cards.
ThinkBook Z series also comes with USB 4.This makes these twoBecome the first AMD to support Thunderbolt 3 , And these things are traditionally Intel unique.
They are also equipped with 16:10 displays, whether 13.3 inches or 16 inches. If needed, you can get a battery life of 1,920 × 1,200, but there is also an OLED option. On the ThinkPad Z13, you can get a 2.8K OLED display, and on the Z16 you can get a 4K OLED.
Lenovo also promised the highest screen-to-body ratio in its entire ThinkPad product line, with ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 having 91.6% and 92.3% screen-to-body ratios, respectively.
Although it does adopt a new design and feels more modern than other ThinkPads, one thing that is still a relic of the past is the TrackPoint, which is located in the small red dot in the middle of the keyboard, and you can use it to control the pointer. This is still included in every ThinkPad produced.
However, the keyboard itself is more modern because it is shallower than what you find on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The depth of the keys is 1.35 mm, which is the same depth as the keys on the ThinkPad X1 Nano and ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga.
You will notice that there are no physical buttons above the touchpad, which are required for use with the TrackPoint. They are only hidden because it is a larger tactile touchpad. You can still use the top area as a button.
As for when you will be able to access these beautiful new ThinkPads, it is still too early, and this is often the case with products released at CES. They will all be available in May 2022. The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 starts at US$1,549, while the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 starts at US$2,099.
