Business Tech Just Got Better
ThinkPad is an iconic brand and for many years has been a leading laptop in the business market. As we enter ThinkPad’s 30th year, Lenovo is proud to announce the new ThinkPad Z series which includes the ThinkPad Z13 and Z16. These laptops offer a combination of progressive design, modern collaboration experiences, competitive performance, and security alongside our core ThinkPad DNA, powered by AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 series processors for mobile with Microsoft Pluton security processor. From product to packaging, Z series is focused on reducing its impact on the environment without compromising on durability by including green materials, such as vegan leather made from 100% recycled plastic, 75% recycled aluminum, and 100% compostable bamboo and sugarcane fiber for the packaging.
At the pinnacle of the ThinkPad portfolio, the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon 10th Gen, X1 Yoga™ 7th Gen and X1 Nano 2nd Gen, powered by Intel vPro® with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors running Windows 11, are optimized for hybrid workers who seek higher levels of performance, better camera and audio capabilities for more immersive collaboration, and a more secure laptop to protect them from the daily demands of remote work.
As far as desktops go, Lenovo’s new ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 3 has features that elevate it to a highly collaborative and intelligent PC. A redesigned Tiny-in-One (TIO) called TIO Flex reimagines the modular All-in-One business desktop that we introduced to the world back in 2014.
Lenovo Neptune™ Liquid Cooling Technologies for the Data Center and Beyond
At CES 2022, Lenovo is showcasing its innovative Lenovo Neptune™ liquid cooling technologies, which have expanded to now include GPUs with two new systems for VDI and high-end analytics. With Lenovo Neptune™, Lenovo has led the evolution from energy-saving concept to performance enhancing and energy reuse reality. Lenovo Neptune’s approach uses liquid cooling to extract heat from systems with high thermal output, made possible by a three-pronged approach, including Direct to Node (DTN) warm-water cooling, Rear-door Heat Exchanger (RDHX), Thermal Transfer Module (TTM), and other technologies. These technologies can drive down total power consumption for full operation of the server and data center, which can lead to real savings quickly and the benefit continues over the life of the infrastructure.
