Lenovo launches stylish ThinkBook S laptop line with businesses in mind

What you need to know

  • New ThinkBook S line is built to combine stylish looks with business-grade security.
  • Two models: ThinkBook 13s and ThinkBook 14s.
  • Expected to launch in late May starting at $730.
  • Available to preorder now at Lenovo (opens in new tab).

Alongside its tiny new ThinkCentre PCs and a new ThinkPad X1 Extreme, Lenovo today debuted its new ThinkBook S line of laptops for business users.

Built for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), Lenovo is focusing on both portability and security. Lenovo is promising a thin and light, premium feel for the ThinkBook line. The laptops are lined with aluminum exteriors that look rather stylish, with Lenovo particularly noting its ambition to attract "young tech-savvy execs with cool looking yet cost-effective devices."

Lenovo ThinkBook 14S

Whether that focus on style is important to IT departments is debatable, but Lenovo also promises a modern suite of business-grade security features and warranties. The specs also back up the laptop's business needs, with up to an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 process, RAM options of 8GB and 16GB, and storage drives ranging up to 512GB of speedy SSD storage. You'll also score a graphics boost with AMD's Radeon 540X with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

Both ThinkBooks are expected to launch in late May. As for pricing, Lenovo says the ThinkBook 13s will start at $730, while the ThinkBook 14s will start at $750. The laptops are also available to preorder now directly from Lenovo (opens in new tab).

Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse (opens in new tab) ($30 at Amazon)

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

AmazonBasics USB speakers (opens in new tab) ($16 at Amazon)

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Razer mouse bungee (opens in new tab) ($20 at Amazon)

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.

  • The chin on the bottom of that screen is just... wow.  It makes a little more sense on a 2-in-1 because you can use that extra space to get a firm grip on the device without sliding your hand all over the keyboard.  And even then I'd say that chin is too large.
