ThinkPad X1, ThinkVision, and Lenovo Go Power Hybrid Working

Powered by latest generation Intel Core processors, Lenovo unveils the updated ThinkPad X1 portfolio. Latest ThinkVision monitor portfolio includes high performance mini-LED and VoIP enabled displays. New Lenovo Go Accessories enhance a hybrid working environment.

Ahead of CES 2023, Lenovo unveiled its latest ThinkPad X1 laptops featuring recycled materials, updated Lenovo Commercial Vantage software designed to highlight feature settings that can help improve energy efficiency, and a new Lenovo View application offering advanced computer vision technology for enhanced video image quality and tools for collaboration, security, and digital wellness.

The latest line of ThinkVision monitors leads with the ultra-bright ThinkVision P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 mini-LED displays followed by ThinkVision’s new T-series VOIP monitors built for hybrid work, featuring an integrated Microsoft Teams functionality, 5MP cameras, dual microphones, and speakers.

Lenovo also introduced its latest professional-grade 4K ThinkVision P-series monitors and, for the home, new value-conscious Lenovo L-series monitors. Completing an efficient hybrid eco-system are new Lenovo accessories, including the unique Lenovo Go Desk Station, Lenovo Go 4K Pro Webcam, and Lenovo Professional Wireless Rechargeable Combo Keyboard and Mouse.

In line with its vision of achieving net-zero by 2050 aligned to Science Based Target initiatives, Lenovo continues to focus on supporting a circular economy by increasing the use of recycled materials in its products and packaging, and collaborating with industry partners to help increase energy efficiency of its devices.

This includes working with suppliers and global logistics providers to decrease the emissions released in its supply chain and take every opportunity to increase the energy efficiency in Lenovo’s factories and workplaces.

ThinkPad X1’s Embrace 30 Years of Innovation

As ThinkPad surpasses 30 years, the brand’s evolution continues to set benchmarks for durability, productivity, performance, and user experience. Entering a new era of computing dominated by a need for a more sustainable future, ThinkPad turns its focus toward hardware and software design and engineering to support Lenovo’s net-zero vision.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11, ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8, and ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 all feature recycled materials in select components:

  • ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 11 includes 90% recycled magnesium in the palm rest and 55% recycled aluminum on its bottom cover
  • ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 3 features 90% recycled magnesium hybrid in the palm rest and bottom cover
  • Furthermore, the retail packaging is made from 100% bamboo and sugarcane fiber, brown box packaging is made from plastic-free packaging with 90% recycled and/or FSC certified content, and the new ThinkPad X1’s include Post Consumer Content (PCC) plastic in select components.
  • All ThinkPad laptops also qualify for Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service.

In addition to increased use of recycled materials, Lenovo’s energy efficiency efforts also extend to the use of its products. The new Lenovo Commercial Vantage application further demonstrates the company’s investments in helping businesses manage their carbon footprint.

The intuitive software aims to guide and encourage users to enable certain settings that are designed to help reduce power consumption or extend component lifespan. The appropriate features include clearly identified labels and information to help users select their preferred configuration. Efficiency labels can extend to:

  • Computer Vision Human Presence Detection can reduce energy consumption through Zero Touch Lock function
  • OLED settings on OLED equipped models can also reduce energy consumption and extend the lifespan of the display
  • Smart Charge can help extend the lifespan of the battery through setting charge thresholds
  • Setting the Keyboard Backlight to Off can reduce power use

The Lenovo View application provides a superior suite of intelligent camera-based features designed to help users unlock the power of the integrated camera to enhance video call experiences and improve security and digital health. The new release expands the feature set and makes significant IQ improvements to existing ones:

Working on sensitive information in public places can present a security risk. Privacy Guard4 and Privacy Alert features integrated in Lenovo View provide additional security by activating the privacy blur or showing the privacy icon when an unauthorized onlooker’s face is detected viewing the laptop screen.

Shift to hybrid working has highlighted concerns about digital well-being as users typically spend more hours per day in front of screens. Posture warning and eye wellness alerts serve as gentle reminders and can be useful tools to help with maintaining or improving digital wellness.

Hybrid work has also witnessed exponential growth in video conferencing, often highlighting the challenges that a dispersed workforce face in remote engagement. Collaboration features like auto-framing, background concealment, and virtual presenter upgrade those on-camera calls to make the presenter front and center, and help all participants be part of the conversation, even in a virtual or hybrid environment.

AI improvements to the video enhancer algorithm can also boost the image quality of the integrated webcam in any lighting environment – even in darker rooms.
