Lenovo today is kicking off CES 2018 with a bunch of announcements, including the announcement of the new ThinkPad L series of computers. The company touts this lineup is “enterprise-ready” with its specifications and pricing geared towards businesses.
Kicking things off, the ThinkPad L380 includes up to an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage, Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, up to 12 hours of battery life with RapidCharge to top off quickly, and a 13.3-inch IPS Full HD display. There’s also two USB-C ports, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, dual-band Wi-Fi, an option for NFC, and an option to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. The ThinkPad L380 Yoga is literally the L380 but with a touchscreen, a 360-degree hinge, and extra USB 3.0 port.
The L480 steps things up to a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen, Intel integrated graphics or a AMD Radeon 530 GPU, up to 512GB of SSD or up to a 1TB HDD, Dolby HD audio, an SD card reader, and facial recognition. It should also receive 12 hours of power on a single charge.
Finally, the L580 upgrades things further to a 15-inch Full HD display, up to a 2TB HDD, a VGA port, and 64-bit Windows 10 Pro. Lenovo says the L580 wil unfortunately only receive up to 11 hours of juice, but that could vary based on real-world usage.
The ThinkPad L380 starts at $609, the L380 Yoga starts at $1049, the L480 starts at $779, and the L580 starts at $769. Each of these models will go on sale this month.
