Lenovo has developed a new roster of laptops for today’s digitally driven workforce. The giant PC maker has recently launched in the Philippines its new lineup of ThinkBook, which is aimed at helping companies meet the requirements of millennial and Gen Z professionals who prefer devices that are exceptional in both style and performance.
“Through the high performance and elegance of the ThinkBook, businesses will have an edge in attracting tech-savvy millennials and Gen Z workers who grew up working, creating, and communicating online with stylish and premium devices,” said Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan. “Lenovo helps companies create a more productive workplace as the young employees, who are already competent in leveraging technology, can now work to their fullest knowing that their demands of flexibility, power, and aesthetics are fulfilled.”
Headlining the lineup in the Philippines is the ThinkBook 13S, which comes with a sleek, magnesium-infused aluminum finish, giving it a distinctive premium look. It has a 13.3” FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS antiglare display with less than 5.55mm thin bezels, giving users a bigger screen to work on, and Dolby Vision™ high dynamic range technology, which provides increased brightness, expanded contrast, amazingly accurate color, and more refined detail to images.
Designed to endure the hardships of day-to-day operations, the ThinkBook was developed with some of the durability features found in the legendary ThinkPad line including protection from water spills, extreme temperature, and vibrations. Its zinc-alloy hinge has powdered-metal technology to endure 25,000 open-and-close cycles, and it’s coated with both indium and stannum to enhance resistance to corrosion.
There are two variants of the ThinkBook 13S available – one will be powered by AMD RADEON 540X graphics with Windows 10 Home OS and 2-Year Carry-in Warranty and is worth PHP 54,990, while the other variant will come out with Integrated Intel® UHD 620 on Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) graphics, Windows 10 Pro OS, and 1-Year Carry-in Warranty and is worth PHP 58,990. Both will run on an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB onboard memory, and 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD storage which enables instantaneous response from programs. For uninterrupted business, Lenovo equipped the device with a battery life of 11 hours and the Rapid Charge feature which fuels the battery up to 80% in just an hour of charging.
The ThinkBook 13S also comes with preloaded features helpful for businesses such as the Lenovo Vantage, which offers tools for preventive hardware diagnostics, personalized hardware settings, and auto-install of critical updates, and Lenovo Migration Assistant, a free application that helps users migrate all user files and settings when upgrading systems. It also has a 30-day trial of the entire Microsoft Office suite of productivity tools.
Enterprise-level security and support
To protect users, Lenovo equipped the ThinkBook 13S with its new ThinkShield security suite that contains features such as the Smart Power On fingerprint recognition for device access, FIDO (Fast Identity Online) security for safer online authentication, and discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM 2.0) encryption capabilities that encrypt and store device user credentials on a separate chip for added security. For physical security, the ThinkBook 13S has a ThinkShutter webcam cover.
In addition, users of the ThinkBook 13S can enjoy business-grade support services such as Premium Support that provides direct access to skilled and experienced Lenovo technicians offering comprehensive hardware and software support. This also includes next business day onsite support, wherein Lenovo IT experts will personally troubleshoot any problems and provide further solutions on premises. Furthermore, the device has Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) support that covers damages not usually part of standard warranties such as minor spills, drops, or damages to the screen.
The ThinkBook 13s will be available in Lenovo Exclusive Stores located at SM North EDSA, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Megamall; as well as Thinking Tools SM City Cebu.
