The New ThinkPad Z Series
It is a delight regarding the significant design advancement in the ThinkPad Z Series, but above all, the ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 continue to mirror the brand’s primary underlying design and engineering tenets.
Besides, key design and technological aspects have been embedded into the ThinkPad Z Series to improve the personal user experience. Minimalism is purposefully refined and appealing.
As a continuation, ultra-narrow bezels and productive 16:10 aspect ratios have been tuned for displays.
Additionally, a new Communications Bar contains a better FHD webcam with a bigger 1.4µm sensor, an electronic e-Shutter for privacy, and dual-array microphones, improving audio and video conferencing more effectively.
A bigger 120mm glass haptic ForcePad that flows perfectly with the all-glass palm rest is employed for quick and easy input.
Lenovo users acquainted with the iconic red TrackPoint will notice a new feature: Double-tap the TrackPoint will bring up a Communication QuickMenu, which provides rapid access to commonly used camera and microphone settings.
Sustainability in Packaging and Products
The brand-new ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 have a modern design concept aimed at a distinct business user audience.
The new eye-catching design comprises changing attitudes on technology, its environmental impact, and the sources of raw materials.
The design intends to offer individualistic premium color accents such as bronze and arctic grey.
Besides, more sustainable materials such as recycled aluminum or recycled black vegan leather were used to produce the ThinkPad Z Series.
Furthermore, sustainability is incorporated in the packaging, which is made of 100% recyclable and compostable bamboo and sugarcane, and the AC power adapter also utilizes 90% Post-Consumer Content (PCC).
First of all, you might be interested to know that ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 will be among the first laptops powered by the most recent AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 Series processors for mobile with the Microsoft Pluton security processor.
