The office personal computer (PC) levels-up to new heights as PC maker Lenovo earlier today announced a range of their latest Lenovo ThinkPad devices.
The ThinkPad has always been known to be designed for business, whether at home, in the office, or on the move. Placing power and performance as the main priority, the ThinkPad is Lenovo’s brand made for those looking for a dedicated and reliable workstation. But today, a new milestone has been unlocked with Intel’s latest 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor.
Lenovo Kaby Lake ThinkPad Launch
A total of four main ThinkPad products were revealed at the launch. They are the following:
- Lenovo ThinkPad E470
- Lenovo ThinkPad T470
- Lenovo ThinkPad X270
- Lenovo ThinkStation P410
Also revealed at the launch were Lenovo V310 and Lenovo Miix 510. The development focused on a customer-centric approach to build on a heritage of product excellence while addressing the changing demands of the market.
“Our work methods are faster than ever. Workplaces are being reconfigured to encourage greater collaboration as more and more employees become mobile. To strive in this ever-growing digitized world, we need to be both flexible and agile. The new ThinkPads were developed with that in mind,” shares Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager while expressing that the new ThinkPad devices are geared for the working class of today who are always on the go.
The new features added to the latest lineup include a cleaner, premium TouchPad that supports Microsoft Precision TouchPad for a more consistent trackpad user experience while new security features include support for Windows Hello for facial recognition login and a biometric fingerprinting sensor.
All new ThinkPad models with Windows 10 will come preloaded with an optimized Microsoft Signature Image to ensure a clean and fast system, right out of the box.
With regards to color design, the four ThinkPads and the Lenovo V310 will come out in Classic Black while the Lenovo Miix 510 will be sold in a sleek silver color. Another visible change is the inclusion of USB Thunderbolt 3 support with a protection circuit chip attached to address incorrect power levels in the ThinkPad devices.
The ThinkPad’s legendary durability remains as every device went through rigorous testing for the Mil-SPEC 810G military standard, consisting of 10 durability tests which include humidity, low temperature, high vibration, and high altitude.

Intel’s 7th generation Kaby Lake processor promises faster processing, higher clock speed, improved graphics performance, and a more efficient architecture.
“And what better way to create the ultimate workstation than by working together with the world’s largest chip maker in Intel. Thanks to them, the already-powerful ThinkPad has two times the performance,” adds Ngan.
Perfect for engineers, architects, 3D animators and other extremely demanding users, Kaby Lake’s Hyper-Threading feature allows for more efficient multi-tasking and performance-heavy tasks such as 3D and video rendering. Its upgraded graphics core can also stream videos in beautiful and crisp 4K quality.
