Lenovo has announced a slate of new laptops. Don’t get too excited it doesn’t include the X1 Fold, the Slim 7, the Yoga 5G, or any of the other groundbreaking product reporters have been buzzing about since CES 2020.

They’re ThinkPads. Remember ThinkPads? Lenovo usually announces incremental upgrades to its ThinkPad lineup during the tech-industry downtime between CES in January and February’s Mobile World Congress.
At this point, we’ve been seeing new ThinkPads for a while (the first ones came out in 1992) and it seems Lenovo was running out of names. At this time last year, the T series was up to T490, and the X series was up to X390 — short of tacking digits onto the end, Lenovo needed a new naming scheme.

Lenovo is also updating its bestselling T series of ThinkPads. What was the T490 has become the T14 and T14s, and the T590 has become the T15. Like the X series, there’s nothing earth-shattering about them.
The Q2 releases will also include 10th-Gen Intel processors, up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage, an optional 4K screen, and dual far-field microphones. The T14 and T14s can come with PrivacyGuard, and the T14 and T15 both come with an Nvidia Geforce MX330 GPU. You’ll see all three devices in Q2 2020 starting at $849, $1,029, and $1,079 respectively.
On the budget end, we’ve got additions to the ThinkPad L series, including a refreshed L13 and L13 Yoga, L14, and L15. These include — as you’ve probably guessed — 10th-Gen Intel processors, but also integrated graphics and dual far-field mics. The L14 and L15 have up to 2TB of HDD or 1TB PCIe SSD storage, while the L13 and L13 Yoga only offer the latter option. No Thunderbolt 3 support on these, though there is a MicroSD slot. The L14 and L15 also include new dedicated communication keys that will make it easier to join and leave meetings.
You can buy the L13, L13 Yoga, L14, and L15 in Q2 2020 starting at $679, $799, $649, and $649 respectively. The T14s, T14, X13, L14, and L15 will also be available with AMD’s upcoming Ryzen Pro 4000 mobile processors, but Lenovo hasn’t announced when you can buy those variants yet.
