Lenovo on Tuesday launched the ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15 in India, two new notebooks designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Unveiled at IFA 2019 in Berlin back in September, the ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15 come with up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and feature zinc-alloy hinges. The new Lenovo laptops also have USB Type-C ports to enable faster data transfer. Lenovo has also offered dedicated graphics up to AMD Radeon 620 to deliver an enhanced graphics experience out-of-the-box. The Lenovo ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15 will go on sale in India from December 1 with a starting price of Rs. 30,990.
As showcased at IFA 2019, the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15 come with an optional Smart Power On feature that uses the fingerprint reader-integrated Power On button to turn on the device only after recognising the fingerprint patterns of authorised users. The notebooks also use built-in Wi-Fi security feature Lenovo Vantage that is touted to detect and notify users about malicious networks in a real time.
The ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15 are equipped with a physical shutter that is designed to keep the built-in webcam covered when not in use. Lenovo calls its new feature ThinkShutter. The notebooks also have dual drive support. Furthermore, there are Skype Hot Keys to let users answer or hang up Skype for Business calls with a single press of a button.
To enhance your Web communication, the Lenovo ThinkBook models have dual-array, Skype for Business-certified microphones and stereo speakers with Dolby Audio. The laptops also have the RapidCharge technology that is rated to charge up to 80 percent of the battery in one hour.
