Lenovo launches a new sub-brand dedicated to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) called ThinkBook – starting with a new line of ultra-slim Windows 10 laptops that embrace the portability and ease-of-use of modern consumer-oriented devices.
ThinkBook is specially designed for the SMBs buying consumer laptops for perceived design and price advantages but can no longer rationalize their lack of extended services and warranties—core needs of any sized business. ThinkBook allows growing firms to keep a competitive edge in attracting today’s young tech-savvy execs with cool looking yet cost-effective devices.
Beginning with the End-User
The ultra-slim ThinkBook S series, available in a 13-inch in Singapore, is designed for business buyers unwilling to make trade-offs in essentials such as, security, reliability, and support services while satisfying the demand for sleek-looking devices that bring the familiar smartphone experience to PCs.
Perfect for any business, the new Lenovo ThinkBook 13s combines modern style and consumer-oriented design elements, such as aluminium exteriors, with the business-grade and built-in security features that consumers expect from the Think family PCs.
Stylish and More Secure
ThinkBook laptops have a premium feel, can lay flat at 180°, and feature ultra-narrow bezels to pack a larger display into a small portable package. Wrapped in aluminium and magnesium metals in a Mineral Grey finish, the laptop’s light-weight, the slim body weighs in at 2.95lbs (1.34kg) on the ThinkBook 13s.
- Single-step authentication and power-on with the touch fingerprint reader
- Discrete TPM 2.0 to enable Windows 10 security features and user data encryption
- Physical ThinkShutter™ camera cover for privacy control
- Hinges coated in Indium metal to reduce WiFi interference
- Loud and clear sound enabled by Dolby Audio™ through HARMAN® speakers
- Premium FHD displays with Dolby Vision® for rich, ultra-vivid visuals
- Spill-resistant keyboard designed to withstand up to 60cc of liquid
- Up to 11 hours of battery life and RapidCharge on ThinkBook 13s
The Windows Modern Standby feature on the ThinkBook 13s brings smartphone connectivity to business laptops; your device can download emails, receive Skype call alerts, and get Windows app updates – even with the lid closed. Moreover, it resumes from standby almost instantly with the Smart Power On button or voice command in some instances.
Skype for Business certified dual-array microphones and dual speakers by HARMAN for clear audio enhance the collaboration experience over VoIP calls. Plus, the dedicated Skype Hot Keys simplify calling with one key to answer and one key to hang up.
The technology inside a ThinkBook is engineered for minimal bottlenecks with 8th Generation Intel Core processors, standard SSD, and powerful graphics with either Integrated Intel UHD 620 or discrete AMD Radeon 540X. RapidCharge technology is also standard on the ThinkBook 13s providing 80 per cent battery capacity on one hour’s charge.
ThinkBook is supported by a range of business-grade services including Lenovo Premier Support, warranty extensions and upgrades, such as onsite next business day support and International Warranty Service to minimize any downtime.
ThinkBooks also come with built-in self-management features, especially useful for smaller companies without dedicated onsite support teams. Among these, the preloaded Lenovo Vantage software offers tools for preventive hardware diagnostics, personalized hardware settings and auto-install of critical updates.
