Engineered for effortless productivity virtually anywhere, the new ThinkPad E14 and E15 offers a smart choice for SMB decision makers. An updated design with an improved screen to body ratio of 85%, the E series also offers the security and durability needed in a changing world. Innovative security features are provided on ThinkPad E series for the first time, including a touch fingerprint reader and an optional IR camera with Glance by Mirametrix technology. The touch fingerprint reader integrated into the power button offers one touch power and logon. The software-enabled Glance feature responds to users’ presence, automatically locking the laptop when the user steps away, and also offers a Snap Window and Smart Pointer function for multi display setups.
Productivity experience is also enhanced with great audio-visual innovations for the best remote collaboration experience. Harman branded speakers with Dolby Audio software, dual array far field microphones and Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business hot keys integrated into the legendary ThinkPad keyboard facilitate unified communications. Optional WiFi 6 maximizes throughput for stable connections.
In a new world of uncertainty, SMB businesses and users need technology they can depend upon with the tools to work wherever they need. ThinkPad business laptops deliver legendary durability and the new E series is no different. Twelve Mil-Spec tests maximize long term reliability. Furthermore, ThinkPad E14 and E15 give users powerful AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series processing power with legendary durability and business-critical productivity and security features.
