Embrace flexible working with AMD-powered ThinkPads

Lenovo is introducing the newest slate of AMD-powered ThinkPads that will enable more companies to embrace flexible working.

As the workplace continues to evolve, Lenovo is introducing the newest slate of AMD-powered ThinkPads that will enable more companies to embrace flexible working.

“Considering the current situation, it seems as though we are not going back to how things used to be as soon as we’d like to. To address challenges like this, Lenovo designs with purpose and innovation focused on customer-centricity to tackle the fast-changing needs of the workforce. With our new AMD-powered ThinkPad devices, employees are, in turn, empowered with the right technology and portability to help them adapt to the new nature of work,” said Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager Michael Ngan in a press statement.

Future of work

For many companies today, employees are required to go on site only on a scheduled basis, or at least whenever needed, and then work from home for the rest of the time.

Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, flexible working, also known as agile working, was already being seen as the future of work. After all, modern information technology environments are characterized by cloud-based resources that allow employees to work from anywhere.

The AMD-powered ThinkPad T14, ThinkPad X13, and ThinkPad E14 are designed to help organizations embrace flexible working as the new normal.

AMD Ryzen processors feature a Zen microarchitecture made up of multiple cores and threads that are capable of carrying out a multitude of distinct commands and responses. This allows users to efficiently run general office applications, video conferencing, real-time analytics, code compilation, and 3D video rendering. Meanwhile, AMD Ryzen processors with PRO technologies have added enterprise-level security features like real-time encryption and the AMD Secure Boot program to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access.

ThinkPad T14 Generation 1

With the T series being the mainstay of the ThinkPad portfolio, the ThinkPad T14 is a corporate workhorse laptop built to perform with up to AMD Ryzen R7 PRO processors, integrated AMD Radeon Vega graphics, and ultra-fast SSD storage, making it the trusted device for multitasking.

With its lightweight design, rapid charging feature, and supreme battery life that lasts up to 14 hours, the ThinkPad T14 is an ideal business laptop for workers who are always on the go.

ThinkPad X13 Generation 1

Designed to echo the features of the T series in a smaller, more portable package, the latest X series includes many smart PC innovations.

With worker mobility at its core, the ThinkPad X13 is a lightweight powerhouse that runs on up to AMD Ryzen R7 PRO processors, which offer a 20- to 40-percent performance increase with 40 percent lower battery consumption, and integrated AMD Radeon Vega graphics, and houses up to 32GB memory and up to 1TB of storage.

ThinkPad E14 Generation 2

Built with modern functionality that is perfect for the newest generation of the workforce, the ThinkPad E14 is an entry-level business laptop that is equipped with innovative features that augment productivity and improve user experience as it ensures quicker load-up times.

The device offers an optional WiFi 6 technology that can enable faster internet speeds, improving connectivity whether in the office or on the go. With the addition of its battery life that lasts up to 13 hours, the ThinkPad E14 is a multitasker’s most reliable PC.

All three ThinkPad devices may be configured with 256GB or higher storage capacity. The ThinkPad T14 prices start at Php51,869. For ThinkPad X13, prices start at Php54,669, while the ThinkPad E14 prices start at Php43,399. Customers may purchase these devices on an order basis through Lenovo’s authorized retail partners.
