FOR its last hurrah for 2019, Lenovo Philippines launched two entries to its newly-introduced ThinkBook line created for “today’s young and digitally-inclined professionals who seek the perfect balance between high-end specifications and premium aesthetics in work devices.”
While the brand’s ThinkPad — known for its rugged, heavy-duty design — was traditionally designed for big enterprises, ThinkBook was created as a professional-level device for small and medium enterprises, the company said in a statement.
In August, Lenovo launched its first ThinkBook, the 13s, a 13.3-inch laptop with an Intel 8th Gen processor which goes up to i7 and can have up to 16GB RAM priced starting from P54,990.
And while the company still needs a year to get the sales numbers of 13s, Lenovo Philippines General Manager Michael Ngan noted that when they made the 13s available for retail, it “was a success.”
“Once we launched it for retail customers, we’ve been getting inquiries in the enterprise space,” Mr. Ngan said.
The ThinkBook line, as a crossover laptop, he said, is “for any consumer, especially consumers who work in companies doing BYOD (bring your own device).”
This led the company to introduce a 14-inch and 15-inch variant to the line to give their customers more options.
Both variants offer full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution anti-glare IPS panels with the screens bendable up to 180 degrees and a screen-to-body ratio of 80%.
Inside, both offer 10th generation Intel Core processors with the 14-inch having an i5-1021U processor and the 15-inch having an i7-10510U.
Both devices come with 8GB DDR4 memory and 512GB M.2 solid state drives for faster loading times. The 14-inch has Intel UHD Graphics card while the 15-inch has AMD Radeon 620 graphics card.
On the security front, the laptops have an integrated fingerprint reader on its Smart Power button.
The ThinkBook 14 is priced starting at P48,990 while the ThinkBook 15 is priced starting P57,490. For more information, visit the Lenovo Philippines website at lenovo.com/ph/en.
