Lenovo unveils new ThinkPads, borderless IPS display, stacking projector and more

As well as announcing the new ThinkPad X1, Lenovo has also carried out some work on the company's ThinkPad line of products at CES 2016. We're looking at a refreshed collection of Windows PCs that will offer various advancements like a thinner build and USB Type-C ports. There's also a sweet-looking borderless IPS display and projector too.

Kicking things off are the new ThinkPad T460 and T560 ($909 and $969 respectively), both which deliver impressive battery life of up to 14 hours and there are the usual screen, storage and memory configurations available. If you'd prefer something a little more mobile, the 14-inch T460s comes in at just 18.8mm thin and weigh under 3 pounds for $1059. Then there's the insane T460p, which sports a WQHD IPS display, discrete graphics, up to 32GB of RAM and is powered by the latest H series of Intel processors.

All the new T-series laptops listed above will be available for purchase in February.

Other ThinkPad models have enjoyed similar makeovers, including the 12-inch ThinkPad X260. An optional battery is available that can bump up battery time to a staggering 21 hours, and should see anyone through the day. The new ThinkPad 13 is the media hub package with a USB Type-C port, Intel Core i5 processor, up to 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Pricing starts at just $449 .

But Lenovo had more to offer than mere laptop refreshes, say hello to the ThinkPad Stack Mobile Projector.

ThinkPad Projector

This handy piece of kit will enable you to take a projector on the road and enjoy a 150 lumens, 720p experience, all powered by a battery that should last a good 2 hours. The device can connect to a PC or external storage to extract media, and there is flexibility to match the projector with other ThinkPad Stacks. The Mobile Projector by Lenovo will be available in April for $399.99.

ThinkVision

Lastly, there's the ThinkVision X24 Pro display. This screen has an integrated Intel 3D RealSense camera for Windows Hello, as well as multiple ports and even USB Type-C. This monitor has a handful of accessories available, like the wireless charging stand for mobile phones. The 23.8-inch borderless IPS display will be available in May for $399.

  • I don't think you should talk about a monitor, like the ThinkVision X24 Pro, without saying whether or not it is touchscreen. Wireless charging on the monitor stand is genius.  Is that cost plus or included?
  • Resolution?
  • The big deal with the ThinkVision X24 Pro seems to be single cable docking via USB-C.  Very curious about that and whether it just works with any laptop that has USB-C or what.  If I buy a laptop with USB-C that isn't a ThinkPad, is single cable docking going to "just work" with this display?  And a keyboard and mouse that are connected to it?
  • That's what I'm wondering. If it's using DisplayPort over USB-C and has additional USB ports as well you could connect USB-C devices like the Lumia 950s and use it like a docking station. If it's using USB-C to quickcharge a device or just to connect it to the computer (if the screen acts as a hub for a connected computer) it's a missed opportunity for them. More devices will come out (not just WP devices) that support using USB-C docking stations   edit: according to this article it does support docking
  • Hmm, could the thinkvision plug directly into a 950?
  • 950 uses standard USB-C protocols. It seems this monitor supports those same standard protocols. We need to send Daniel over there to plug is 950 in
