Lenovo has taken the wraps off its newest entries into the ThinkPad T and X series of laptops at MWC 2019. Lenovo touts it has sold more than 140 million ThinkPads to date, and the company hopes to further its achievements with these new models.

Starting with the T series, Lenovo has the new ThinkPad T490, T490s, and T590. These new models have received a complete redesign with a thinner chassis and lighter weight over the older T480 series.

Of course, with every new generation of ThinkPads, Lenovo has plenty of features that stretch across the lineup. With this generation, Lenovo takes your safety into stronger consideration with the availability of ThinkPad PrivacyGuard with PrivacyAlert and ThinkShutter physical webcam covers. There’s also a new ThinkPad BIOS with upgraded features such as a self-healing capability.

There are also plenty of more user-friendly features. This includes high-speed WWAN for better connectivity with up to gigabit speeds; Wi-Fi 6 support on the T490s, X390, and X390 Yoga; dual microphones for better voice pickup; HDR support on some models; and lower-power 400-nit displays on certain machines. Overall, the new ThinkPad lineup seems pretty solid.

To add versatility to the lineup, Lenovo is also introducing a new ThinkVision M14 portable monitor. Essentially, it’s an external 14-inch Full HD display that can extend your laptop’s current screen. It connects to your laptop using USB-C and can even charge your main machine when the monitor is connected to an AC power source. It weighs just 1.3 pounds and will give you more versatility than you have with just a standard 13- or 14-inch laptop screen.

According to Lenovo, the T490, T490s, and T590 will start at $999, $1,279, and $1,029, respectively. Meanwhile, the X390 and X390 Yoga will start at $1,099 and $1,359. Each model will launch this June in the United States. The ThinkVision M14 external monitor will cost $249, with U.S. availability to be announced at a later date.
