IFA 2019 is just around the corner and yours truly will be attending this year. But Lenovo isn’t waiting on Berlin to make a few announcements of its own. The company today announced its latest generation of ThinkPad laptops most of which you are familiar with.

ThinkPad has always been known as the business users laptop and for good reason. They’re reliable, tough and have a ton of features. But, that doesn’t mean only business users can use a ThinkPad. These laptops will serve a normal consumer, who’s willing to pay for it, just as well. Not to mention, these laptops are made to last a while so you shouldn’t have to worry about them crapping out on you in a year or less.

In today’s tech world, security is a top priority, and we have addressed this need by adding innovative ThinkShield security features to our machines. The hybrid HD+IR Camera with ThinkShutter™ protects users from prying eyes. Secure multi-factor authentication is possible with Windows Hello™, along with a match-on-host fingerprint reader. The lightweight form factor, versatile connectivity options, and long battery life empower you to achieve more, no matter where your work takes you.

“We know from user insights that the next-gen workforce expects much more flexible working methods. This includes the need to work from anywhere, anytime with technological tools at their disposal that are fast, secure, intuitive and mobile,” said Jerry Paradise, vice president, Commercial Product and Portfolio Management, Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo. “Our unparalleled family of ThinkPad laptops gives business professionals smarter productivity, security and connectivity experiences along with greater choice in selecting the device that’s right for them.”
