We have the totally new ThinkPad Yoga 370 2-in-1 convertible, refreshed T-Series (T470, T570, T470s, and T470p) and L-Series (L470 and L570) models, the new X270, and an updated version of the ThinkPad 13.

What to expect from Lenovo's new laptops:

  • Microsoft Signature: All ThinkPads comes loaded out of the box with the Microsoft Signature Image (clean install, no bloatware).
  • Precision TouchPad: Microsoft's PTP standard supported across all devices.
  • USB-C 'Anti-Fry' Protection: Systems with USB-C have equipped with protection circuit to protect from improperly designed/malfunctioning USB-C power supplies.
  • dTPM 2.0 security support: Universal implementation of discrete TPM 2.0.
  • ThinkPad Intelligent diagnostic codes: Intelligent Diagnostics with musical tones from notebook interpreted by companion smartphone app.
  • Intel Optane Performance: Non-volatile storage medium in the PCIe M.2 format for significant improvements in endurance, performance, and power consumption.

Things to take away from Lenovo's new laptops:

  • Microsoft Signature edition is a big deal, especially for Lenovo. Lenovo has said that all ThinkPads will have a clean install of Windows 10, with no additional bloatware - something the company has a knack for doing, as well as more nefarious stuff over the last 18-24 months.
  • Intel's new Kaby Lake CPUs - this is something I'm excited for, to see how well Intel's new Kaby Lake family of processors performs inside of a laptop.
  • Intel Optane 3D storage technology - Another exciting technology: Optane 3D storage tech from Intel, a non-volatile storage tech based on the PCIe-based M.2 form factor.
