When we talked about ThinkPad, we look at it as an old-school black laptop with rubber mouse pointer cap on the keyboard. Originally came from IBM, ThinkPad today is developed by giant PC maker Lenovo.
Recently, through its local partner Lenovo Philippines, the Chinese-tech company announces the arrival of their ThinkPad lineup powered by Intel’s latest 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor to the PHL market.
Known for its durability, robustness, design, and overall performance, the ThinkPad is Lenovo’s brand made for those looking for a dedicated and reliable workstation. Placing power and performance as the main priority, the ThinkPad is designed to keep in pace with your business, whether at home, in the office, or on the move.
In a press statement, Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan expressed his sentiments that the new ThinkPad devices are geared for the working class of today who are always on the go.
“Our work methods are faster than ever. Workplaces are being reconfigured to encourage greater collaboration as more and more employees become mobile,” explained Ngan. “To strive in this ever-growing digitized world, we need to be both flexible and agile. The new ThinkPads were developed with that in mind.”
What are the latest ThinkPad lineup?
These are the ThinkPad E470, ThinkPad T470, ThinkPad X270, and ThinkStation P410. Throughout the development process, Lenovo focused on a customer-centric approach to build on a heritage of product excellence while addressing the changing demands of the market.
Some of the new features added to the latest lineup include a cleaner, premium TouchPad that supports Microsoft Precision TouchPad for a more consistent trackpad user experience while new security features include support for Windows Hello for facial recognition login and a biometric fingerprinting sensor.
All new ThinkPad models with Windows 10 will come preloaded with an optimized Microsoft Signature Image to ensure a clean and fast system, right out of the box. Another visible change is the inclusion of USB Thunderbolt 3 support with a protection circuit chip attached to address incorrect power levels in the ThinkPad devices. The ThinkPad’s legendary durability remains as every device went through rigorous testing for the Mil-SPEC 810G military standard, consisting of 10 durability tests which include humidity, low temperature, high vibration, and high altitude.
COMBO PARTNER: Lenovo and Intel
Keeping things running under the hood is Intel’s 7th generation Kaby Lake processor which promises to boost the ThinkPad’s features further thanks to its faster processing, higher clock speed, improved graphics performance, and a more efficient architecture.
Perfect for engineers, architects, 3D animators and other extremely demanding users, Kaby Lake’s Hyper-Threading feature allows for more efficient multi-tasking and performance-heavy tasks such as 3D and video rendering. Its upgraded graphics core can also stream videos in beautiful and crisp 4K quality.
Price-wise, the Lenovo ThinPad E470 is priced at P36,990; ThinkPad T470 at P62,990; ThinkPad X270 at P89,990; and ThinkStation P410 at P87,990.
