Lenovo laptops powered by Intel’s latest 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor are now in the Philippines.
At the media launch Wednesday, Lenovo Philippines Product & Distributor Manager for SMB, Francis Judan revealed a total of three ThinkPads: ThinkPad E470, ThinkPad T470, and ThinkPad X270. Also introduced at the launch were the Lenovo V310, the Lenovo Miix 510 2-in-1 device, and the Intel Xeon-powered ThinkStation P410 entry-level workstation.
Judan said that with the Intel 7th Generation Kaby Lake processor, the new computers will be able to run native 4K video, have longer battery life, support facial recognition and biometric fingerprinting, and offer faster storage with SSD.
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 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 devices also sport a cleaner, premium TouchPad that supports Microsoft Precision TouchPad for a more consistent trackpad user experience.
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.
