Lenovo at CES
I always wish Lenovo would return to its pre-pandemic attitude towards tech conferences. Its booths at previous events, such as IFA in Berlin and MWC, were nothing short of pure tech gluttony. Their catalogue of devices is so wide-ranging that it deserves to be shown off.
Look past what you think you know about them, and you’ll find home smart devices, high-end gaming laptops, a wide selection of tablets, Motorola foldable smartphones and almost as many accessories as an Apple store! Its recent Tech World event in Austin was a perfect stage to show the abundance of potential of the world’s biggest PC maker.
However, in the realm of business, prosumer and consumer laptops, Lenovo’s latest offerings, unveiled just ahead of the start of CES 2024, stand as a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation and user experience with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 leading the way.
Just before the start of CES 2024, Lenovo announced three new devices.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12
Featuring Intel Core Ultra processors, ensuring optimal power efficiency and performance, the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 will be essential for the modern business traveller.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 12 integrates a high-resolution OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, delivering crisp and smooth visuals. It also includes an optional 8MP camera within its unique Communications Bar, supporting advanced video conferencing capabilities, and a larger 120mm TrackPad with physical buttons for precise control and ease of use.
The laptop’s sleek and robust design offers a premium feel that resonates with professional users. A standout feature of the X1 Carbon Gen 12 will be its AI integration, which promises to streamline and enhance the user’s workflow, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a blend of power and sophistication in their computing experience.
