Despite several states beginning to roll out phase one of reopening areas amid an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are allowing its employees to choose their safest work environment and for some, that means continuing to work-from-home, fortunately, Lenovo is rolling out new ThinkPad devices to help build-out home offices or help update reopening ones.
Unveiled late last week, was the ThinkPad P-14 and P-15 laptops and updates to the ThinkCentre desktop portfolio with 10th Gen Intel Core vPro Processors.
Today, Lenovo announced the latest ThinkCentre desktop portfolio featuring a blend of powerful technologies including high-performance 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with optional 10th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processors available in selected models. Offering businesses full flexibility for their desktop needs with Tower, Small Form Factor (SFF), All-in-One (AIO), and Tiny form factors, the updated ThinkCentre M70, M80, and M90 series are designed to meet the complex computing and business continuity needs in today’s changing world. Lenovo is also updating the Tiny-in-One solution (TIO) with the 4th generation TIO22 and TIO24. These solutions offer innovative display plus optional Tiny desktop models for a versatile modular all-in-one PC.
The new ThinkCentre's are designed for modulation, allowing customers to buy either a PC tower or a "Tiny" desktop that can be attached to the back of a 21.5-inch monitor for a minimalistic workspace.
Each form factor comes with the updated 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processor, refined standby technology, USB Type-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA port options. Beyond the hardware, the ThinkCentre's will also sport Lenovo's ThinkShield compliance software to offer state-of-the-art digital security solutions that run alongside any proprietary business options your company may want to apply.
For those, a bit more mobile or pressed for space at home, the ThinkPad P14 and P15 (updates to the P43 and P53 lineup) will also usher in 10th gen processors and configurations up to Core i7-10810u chips for boosted clock speed work of up to 4.9GHz. The P14 and P15, like its predecessors, offer performance suited best for designers using AEC or CAD applications which is why Lenovo is also stuffing an NVIDIA Quadro graphics card in them as well as up to 2TB of onboard storage to quickly access medium to large renders for clients or managers.
Projects, workbooks, presentations, and demonstrations built with the P14 and P15 can all be viewed on their 4K UHD displays calibrated with X-Rite Pantone Factory color calibration and enhanced with Dolby Vision HDR.
For those interested, some of last week's updates will be available for purchase as early as later this month.
