Lenovo has announced its 2015 lineup from its well regarded Think Series of devices. Among the products are a couple of laptops, a new display, and the aptly-named ThinkStack line of accessories. The company also brings some new updates to some old favorites. Let’s tell you a little bit about them.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon
The Thinkpad X1 is Lenovo’s Flagship Ultrabook and it’s back and much improved for 2015. The X1 Carbon is just a tick under 3 pounds and just 0.7 inches thick. It features a 15″ 2560×1440 Quad HD Display with 10-point multitouch to take full advantage of Windows 8.1 and later. Processing power is provided by the new Intel 5th Generation Core i7 CPUs and the latest Intel GT2 graphics. It comes standard with 8GB of memory and up to 512GB of storage on an SSD with direct access to the PCI-E bus rather than SATA. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a 10 hour battery.
The Thinkpad Carbon X1 will ship later this month starting at $1249. If the X1 isn’t your thing, Lenovo’s X, L, E, & T-series Thinkpads have been upgraded to 5th Generation Core processors for 2015. They will ship in February starting at $599.
ThinkVision X24 Display
To go with its Think-Series of devices, Lenovo is launching a new lightweight thin-bezel 23.8″ display called the X24. The X24 features a 1920×1080 panel with IPS technology. The display features both HDMI and DisplayPort connections and a highly adjustable design made of quality materials.
The X24 Display costs $249 and will ship to market in April.
The ThinkPad Stack is a line of accessories designed to save space by stacking together. The units offer Bluetooth speakers, 10,000 mAh power banks, portable USB hard drives of 1TB capability, and a portable AC-wireless access point. The entire stack weighs less than 2 pounds with all 4 units.
The Thinkpad stack will costs $89.99 for the speaker, $49.99 for the powerbank, and a kit with the drive and Access Point for $199.
