What you need to know

  • Lenovo announced several ThinkPad T series laptops at Mobile World Congress.
  • The range now features 16:10 displays with low blue light technology.
  • The new ThinkPad T series laptops run on either 12th Gen Intel Core processors with optional Intel vPro or AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 series CPUs.

Lenovo expanded its ThinkPad T series of laptops at Mobile World Congress today. The lineup of business laptops now includes a larger ThinkPad T16 as well as updates to the ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 and T14 Gen 3. Available with either 12th Gen Intel Core processors with optional vPro technology or AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 series CPUs, the new ThinkPad laptops will look to compete with the best business laptops.

Thanks to thinner bezels and taller 16:10 displays, the new ThinkPad T series laptops fit more screen into similarly sized bodies to their predecessors. Depending on the model, T series laptops should hit up to 500 nits of brightness with 4K resolution. Multiple devices in the lineup support Dolby Vision HDR and feature low blue light technology. Resolution for the laptops maxes out at 2.8K, which is an option for the OLED display on the ThinkPad T14s.

Inside, AMD-powered ThinkPad T series laptops run on AMD Radeon 600m graphics. Intel models have up to Intel Iris Xe graphics with options for an NVIDIA MX 550 or RTX 2050.

If you prioritize portability, both the ThinkPad T14 and T16 will have options with 39.3Wh batteries. If you're willing to carry a bit more weight to get longer battery life, models with 52.5Wh will also be available.

The ThinkPad T14 supports software-only human presence detection, a first according to Lenovo. That functionality uses ultrasound sensor technology by Elliptic Labs' AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform.

  • Always appreciate the coverage! There's a small type in the Thinkpad 16 specs sheet, you wrote Thinkpad "14" instead of "16" in the header.
  • Will be interested to side a side by side review of performance, thermals and battery life. Loved the T14 laptops. Been with HP for a while. Curious to see what these are like for my next upgrade.
