Lenovo announces latest Windows 11 laptops

By Valentina Tuta

A couple of weeks before its annual event, Lenovo started its CES 2023 announcements unveiling several Windows 11 PCs that include ThinkPad X1 laptops that have more recycled materials, a new generation of IdeaPad Pro and a refresh of the compact IdeaCentre Mini. Let’s take a look at the most important developments the company has in mind.

Ecofriendly devices

As the first objective, Lenovo wants to increase its use of recycled and recyclable materials in its products and packaging in order to accomplish its vision of achieving net-zero by 2050. Moreover, the company wants to collaborate with industry partners to help increase its devices’ energy efficiency.

Thus, the first product you have to take into account for the next year is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11 that includes 90% recycled magnesium in the palm rest and a 55% recycled aluminum bottom cover and its partner ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3, with a 90% recycled magnesium hybrid in the palm rest and bottom cover.

On the other hand, it should be noted that these new X1s include Post Consumer Content (PCC) plastic in some components. But that’s not the end, since all ThinkPad laptops also qualify for Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service.

X1s’ technology

Designed on the Intel Evo platform, the X1s feature the latest generation Intel Core processors up to i7 with Intel vPro. Furthermore, it’s very easy to configure it to your specific needs, such as adding optional up to 64GB of LPDDR5 RAM on the X1 Carbon Gen 11 and X1 Yoga Gen 8 if you have a lot of memory-intensive tasks.

Likewise, its screen is very friendly with your eyes as it has low blue light-emitting displays with a Dolby Vision enabled OLED otion that can help reduce eye strain and fatigue. 

Certified by TÜV Rheinland, this product is perfect for users that usually spend lots of time in front of the screen. Besides, you’ll also find video conferencing improvements, a simpler login experience, better energy management and a mechanical camera shutter for more privacy.

Upgrades to old and new equipment

However, these new features are not only for new devices. In fact, you’ll be able to find them in many Lenovo’s other pre-CES PCs. For instance, you can get the latest IdeaPad Pro 5i and IdeaPad Pro 5 Gen 8, which come with an increased thermal performance. Together with the latest standard voltage Intel or AMD processors and up to an NVIDIA RTX GeForce Next-Gen Laptop GPU that make it easy to create content and transfer large data files.

In the same way, 16-inch devices have a new Dynamic Display Switch, which enhances frames per second. This equipment provides a wider viewing experience for watching videos or gaming thanks to its faster refresh rates of up to 120Hz, QHD+ resolution and its 16:10 aspect ratio.

These IdeaPads also include a 25% larger touch pad, and an FHD IR camera with a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor – which makes logging in with Windows Hello faster through face recognition. An SSD expandable storage slot (available in 16-inch only) delivers more data storage options, while the USB 4.0 and Thunderbolt 4.0 mean you’ll have faster data transfer.

Are you looking for a new desktop? 

Lastly, if you´re looking for a new desktop PC, Lenovo introduced their IdeaCentre Mini with an updated design. As you see, it has a built-in power supply unit (PSU) that makes it easier to fit anywhere on a desk, lying flat or sitting vertically in the included metal stand as well as meeting performance and storage requirements to accommodate editing projects and multi-tasking: the latest Intel Core processor, two DDR4 memory chips, SSD storage up to 1 TB, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and ample ports with a Type-C Thunderbolt 4.0.
