Lenovo reveals its ThinkPad lineup for 2017 just ahead of CES 2017.

CES 2017 is just around the corner and Lenovo is getting the jump on its 2017 announcements by unveiling the ThinkPad lineup. We’ll be going one on one with Lenovo in Vegas in January to take a look at these offerings but for now, here’s the full sneak peek and press release details on the ThinkPad lineup.

How we work is evolving faster than ever. Workplaces are being reconfigured to encourage greater collaboration. More and more employees are mobile. Skype for Business is expected to be used by 70% of large enterprises by 2018 and Gartner predicts that 75% of organizations will have a bimodal IT capability. Bimodal IT is the practice of managing two separate, coherent models of IT. One focused on stability and the other on agility. This enables companies to protect core business functions with standardized devices in a fully managed and secure environment. Also, to strive in a new digitized world of opportunities by being fast and flexible, embracing personal workstyles and nurturing anytime, anywhere productivity. Whether you are a mobile traveler or technology focused millennial who places priority on workplace technology and ultimate portability, or essential and versatile users who seek consistency, security, and reliability, the new ThinkPad notebooks offer both agility and stability to embrace workplace transformation and personal workstyles.

Lenovo’s latest line of ThinkPad notebooks have been inspired by our customer feedback, and built on a heritage of product excellence through the pursuit of relentless innovation, trusted quality and purposeful design:

  • A cleaner, premium TouchPad supporting the Microsoft® Precision TouchPad has been designed to offer a more consistent trackpad user experience
  • Classic ThinkPad Black and a new silver color on selected models for design-conscious end-users
  • Infrared camera option with facial recognition software for fast, secure and password-free login with Windows Hello
  • Latest generation Intel® Core™ processors
  • USB Type-C ports across many systems including ThunderBolt 3 with a new protection circuit to guard against incorrect power levels.
  • Biometric Match on Chip Fingerprint sensor securely processes enrolled data within the sensor and all fingerprint images are handled inside the fingerprint processing unit.
  • Broad connectivity options including LTE-A WWAN and WIFI CERTIFIED WiGig™ docking.
  • All ThinkPad models in 2017 with Windows 10 will come preloaded with an optimized Microsoft Signature Image ensuring a clean and fast system, right out of the box.
