Lenovo announced new updates to the ThinkPad L390 and Yoga L390 business laptops which will go on sale later this month. These new laptops are available with touch and with a pen on the Yoga model. The ThinkPad L390 Yoga also includes a camera that faces out, allowing students to capture lectures and notes and workers to easily share photos from the field.
The new models are designed with cost conscious business buyers in mind. These new ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga devices are more affordable, but you still get the same ThinkPad ruggedness and durability. These offer the performance that business users and students need. This line is below the ThinkPad X1 and the T or X series.
In addition to the business ready durability and design, Lenovo includes a collection of security features including dTPM 2.0, a built-in fingerprint reader and IR camera on the Yoga model.
Lenovo will start selling the ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga in black and silver in December. The L390 starts at $659 and the L390 Yoga is $889.
ThinkPad X1 Tablet
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet offers a lot of great features: a durable shell, an amazing display and Amazon's Alexa personal assistant.
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet has a 13-inch display. And, despite its good looks, the device has passed 12 military torture tests to ensure it can survive dust storms, cold temperatures, drops and spills. Finally, If you don't find Microsoft's Cortana personal assistant useful, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet has the same Alexa personal assistant your Echo smart speakers do. A Surface Pro won't survive a drop or spilled liquid and Cortana isn't as useful as Alexa is.
The third-generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet has powerful processors, plenty of RAM and other options. Models come with up to an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. You won't get stuck waiting for web pages to load or your photo editor to process your touch-ups. If you don't like passwords, use the IR camera on the front of the ThinkPad X1 Tablet to sign into Windows. This 2-in-1 also has a fingerprint reader.
The ThinkPad X1 Tablet's screen detects 4,096 different levels of pressure from its digital pen. Besides that, it's a really detailed display. Windows, your videos and everything else you do on it looks crisp and detailed. Again, it's three times as sharp as an HD display.
Like other Surface Pro 4 alternatives, this Windows 2-in-1 connects to its included keyboard cover using a special slot on its bottom edge. It has Thunderbolt 3 ports for fast data transfers, a MicroSD card reader and a headset jack. With LTE connectivity, you can add the ThinkPad X1 Tablet to your smartphone data plan. You can't do that with a Surface Pro 4.
